Co-Design to Target allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate disparate tools, organizations and processes into a single stream to optimize form, fit and function in an integrated System Digital Mock-up (DMU).

This System DMU can avoid many of the integration issues that significantly impact the cost and schedule of a program.

By connecting the dots, the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform makes it possible to drive program convergence with a real-time view to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) across all departments, sites and suppliers, making it possible to proactively keep programs on track.
