This article reports on the move of Dassault Systemes to unveil its new DELMIA Automation product line as of June 2005. It was learned that the product line enables control engineers in all automation industries to digitally define, control and monitor automated systems entirely in a 3D virtual environment. DELMIA Automation provides a digital model of control logic for an automated system independent of PLC hardware, being based upon a unique Logic Control Modeler (LMC) technology. Being able to identify control logic errors before implementation through evaluation of PLC programs and/or changes on virtual equipment instead of taking risks on the real equipment, DELMIA Automation helps to significantly reduce product launch time. Such ability, reduces development time, costs in both manpower and capital investment and increase total factory productivity. According to Philippe Charles, CEO of DELMIA, DELMIA Automation's collaborative digital workspace allows mechanical, electrical, and control design engineers to work in parallel to share knowledge, react to changes, and communicate within the same V5 virtual environment. It was also learned that the new solution provides a natural extension to the DELMIA PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) offering.
