Messier-Bugatti-Dowty implements Dassault Systèmes’ digital platform to streamline development processes

The performance and reliability of landing and braking systems are crucial for aircraft safety. Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, a global leader in these critical components, ensures that around 25,000 aircraft equipped with its systems make over 40,000 safe landings daily. The company’s commitment to safety, combined with cutting-edge technology, has positioned Messier-Bugatti-Dowty among the leaders in aircraft braking systems, with its advanced carbon brakes being 50% lighter than traditional steel counterparts. This technological edge helps airlines save on fuel, reduce environmental impact, and cut operating costs.

As the frontrunner in aircraft landing and braking systems, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty operates through five divisions, each leveraging complementary products and technologies to deliver global expertise. The company's primary challenge is to rapidly develop customized solutions for each client, often working across continents. This necessitates a robust system that can ensure seamless collaboration and maintain the highest standards of quality and innovation.

To address these challenges, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform from Dassault Systèmes. The platform offers design, data management, simulation and analysis, manufacturing, and documentation, all integrated into the industry solution known as Ready for Rate. The comprehensive 3DX platform enables Messier-Bugatti-Dowty to streamline its operations and enhance cross-site collaboration.

By implementing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty has streamlined its operations, enhanced cross-site collaboration, and achieved significant improvements in development processes. The platform ensures digital continuity and provides engineering and manufacturing planning stakeholders with accurate, real-time information, leading to accelerated development times and enhanced quality and design innovation

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides us with a unique platform with data references for design, delivery, and maintenance. This digital continuity ties all our sites together so that everyone is working with the same and most up-to-date product information with real-time accessibility,” said Pascal Tavernier, MEDS Project Manager.

The landing and braking systems manufacturer has experienced various tangible benefits, such as:

  • A unified platform for all design and data management needs
  • Advanced tools for simulation and analysis to refine product designs
  • Integrated manufacturing processes and documentation management
  • A real-time access to accurate product and build information across all sites
  • The same up-to-date product information across all sites
  • Reduced time required to develop and customize solutions
  • Enhanced quality and reliability of designs through precise simulation and analysis
