New Releases A


ccenture plc (Dublin, Ireland) and Dassault Systèmes (Paris) announced April 25 at Hannover Messe that the


companies are building a proof of concept to show how digital technologies can improve effi ciency and create more agile manufacturing in industries such as heavy industrial equipment and aerospace. Working with a large industrial equipment company, Ac-


centure and Dassault Systèmes are building and implement- ing a three-phase solution that harnesses digital technologies to create a link between engineering and the manufactur- ing shop fl oor for non-repetitive manufacturing companies. The adaptive solution provides a new level of continuity for


product assembly including the sequence in which parts are built, and provides a better level of insight into the process for engineers and the assembly staff. The fi rst phase of the agile manufacturing solution creates


the theoretical assembly sequence required to build a product such as a train, airplane or digger. Phase two helps create, optimize and replan quickly an operational plan and schedule for each worker on the shop fl oor. The third phase creates a digital display of the schedule for each worker so they are able to refer to it. These three phases use Dassault Systèmes’ solutions. Accenture and Dassault Systèmes are creating a solution


that provides a new digital link between the engineering team and the shop fl oor, allowing for real-time changes in the sched- ule. The agile manufacturing solution can also provide insight and risk assessment for any proposed changes to a product or the assembly schedule before they are made, greatly reducing downtime and creating more agile manufacturing.

ENGRAVE IT. CUT IT. MARK IT.


Introducing the Fusion M2 with Dual Source Capabilities. CO2 and Fiber Laser Sources in One


The all-new Epilog Fusion M2 incorporates both CO2 and fiber between the CO2 and


laser laser


sources into a single system. Now, you can run a single job that automatically switches


fiber


lasers. Unbelievable versatility is now at your fingertips for a fraction of the cost of two different machines.
