Linking the Virtual and the Real

Digital continuity is a powerful but elusive concept. In the demo, we will show how Dassault Systèmes’ manufacturing portfolio bridges the gap between virtual process planning and simulation and real manufacturing execution. Using a physical demonstrator, we will show how the planning content of the 3D EXPERIENCE platform is used to assist production workers with assembly tasks using augmented reality.


About Dassault Systèmes

Achieving operational excellence in manufacturing requires a set of standardized operational processes that must be created and managed holistically at a global level. This can only be achieved with digital consistency. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes connects the real world with the virtual world. This means that all stages of value creation are intertwined and all participants have access to a common database, the so-called “single source of truth”. In this way, manufacturing companies gain insight into new products, plants and production processes – always with the aim of increasing agility, developing sustainable innovations and ensuring long-term competitiveness.

Smart Services and Digital Tools for Production

The energy supply for the production of the future is: Efficient. Intelligent. CO2-free. But how can this combination be implemented in a way that makes sense operationally? We provide insights, and in playful form. Using Lego Serious Play, we will build up the energy concept of the future in a modular way and use it to explain key aspects of the content. Pointed. Clear. Concise.




Simply connect existing machines and use them with smart services. Sounds complicated? But it’s not. As the name suggests, Easy2IoT makes it easy. The modular system can be used regardless of manufacturer and networks different players such as machine operators, tool manufacturers and service providers within a value network and also makes old machines smart.






FabOS is an open, distributed, real-time capable and secure operating system for production. It is intended to form the basis for data-driven services and AI applications so that the transformational automation of the factory of the future can be implemented. Sounds like utopia? But it isn’t. We show what is already possible today and what will be important in the future.






More performance for human-robot collaboration applications while maintaining safety? This is what Robo-Dashcam makes possible. The interaction of the human with the robot as well as other safety-relevant data are recorded during operation, statistically evaluated and used to determine optimization potential.

Automated logistics for matrix production 

A shortage of skilled workers and rising costs demand the automation of smaller quantities. This requires process modules that can be used in a variety of applications. AMR and bin-picking provide flexible automated logistics to link process modules. These technologies enable matrix production. Advantages are offered by an integrator who masters the manufacturing processes and logistics.
