Gartner Inc. (www.gartner.com), a major research and industry analyst firm, has ranked Dassault Systemes as the top financial performer in the growing sector of Product Lifecycle Management software and services. The ranking, completed in March, also includes EDS PLM Solutions, PTC, and MatrixOne as leaders in PLM. Autodesk and MSC.Software also ranked high as challengers.
Gartner said in its report that Dassault and its U.S. marketing partner IBM have committed more resources to their partnership and that Dassault deserves credit for building a complete PLM framework on its V5 architecture.
Dassault President Bernard Charles says PLM is the next revolution for creating manufactured products using 3D modeling.
A new federally sponsored manufacturing innovation center to strengthen US manufacturing abilities in fiber-reinforced composites has formed, bringing together materials suppliers, OEMs, university R&D labs, and national labs.
