Innovation on Track

Transportation and Mobility - Innovation on Track

New global opportunities are more diversified, require advanced systems engineering, and demand real-time, multi-site governance. Rolling Stock innovators are challenged to advance their product performance, ensure enterprise collaboration, all while enhancing safety, reliability and optimising profitability. INNOVATION ON TRACK 3DEXPERIENCE solutions provide your teams with railway industry-proven tools and integrated processes to pursue new complex opportunities, optimise design, engineering, and manufacturing performance, enable asset re-use and modularisation, and ensure profitable, on-target delivery.

Implement an integrated governance solution

Innovation on Track solutions provide a global platform to assess and secure new opportunities. Integrated governance and change management support ensures your global teams are fulfilling requirements and meeting milestones. The single source of truth connects all stakeholders in an integrated 3D environment to enhance global/local (glocal) collaboration, meet train maker requirements and ensure on –time delivery.

Transform engineering processes with systems engineering

Innovation on Track also includes an advanced systems engineering solution to support complex product design. Capture requirements from rail operators, define and validate the systems architecture, then simulate and virtually validate systems performance, all within one unified platform

Minimise your risk and validate manufacturability to deliver on target

Leveraging general office applications to appraise and develop new business proposals is risky when managing sophisticated global opportunities. Innovation on Track solutions support systematic processes with railway industry-proven checks and methodologies. ControlBuild capabilities enable an innovative environment for designing and validating critical control software applications, minimising costly production delays. From model and tooling design and simulation to manufacturing and assembly processes, suppliers can ensure they deliver precisely in time and on target.

Enhance other domains with multi-disciplinary engineering

Gain your competitive edge by unifying multi-disciplinary efforts in document management, BOM management, project management and multi-CAD management. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will help to create ‘the virtual train’ environment, bringing together both your precise mockup and systems command.

Enhance your wins with more profitable results

Key challenges for rolling stock innovators are winning tenders and limiting cost overruns. New industry business is pursued within a short time frame with limited resources to precisely assess all options of the project. Innovation on Track solutions enable suppliers both to answer RFQs more efficiently and to accurate meet train OEM requirements, thus improving suppliers’ win/loss ratio, minimising errors and accelerating delivery on target.
