With a hands-on technical approach and working in close collaboration with SOLIDWORKS tight-knit user community of more than two million engineers and designers, Gian Paolo Bassi led the development of the brand's cloud applications, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual and SOLIDWORKS Industrial Conceptual, to provide users with an instinctive powerful 3D modeling environment with online data storage and social collaboration on Dassault Systemes 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Gian Paolo Bassi, 55 years old, has more than 25 years of experience in 3D, CAD, and PLM application development. Prior to joining Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS brand, he was founder and CTO of RIWEBB where he oversaw the development of new technologies for the mechanical and architectural design automation industry.

Dassault Systèmes Signs Research Agreement with the Food and Drug Administration for its 'Living Heart Project'

Dassault Systèmes announced that it has reached a significant milestone in its project aimed at driving the creation and use of simulated 3D personalized hearts in the treatment and diagnosis of heart diseases and medical device development. Powered by Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform's realistic simulation applications, The 'Living Heart Project' announced in May of this year, has rapidly moved its first realistic 3D heart simulator into beta test, validated the efficacy of a device and has surpassed 30 contributing member organizations. As a key step of this initiative, Dassault Systèmes has signed a five-year collaborative research agreement with the United States' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which will initially target the development of testing paradigms for the insertion, placement and performance of pacemaker leads and other cardiovascular devices used to treat heart disease. Using a technology crowdsourcing model that protects the intellectual property of each member, yet enables all to share the outcome, the 'Living Heart Project' is being developed closely with leading cardiologists, medical device companies and academic researchers who participate in the evaluation of the simulated heart model's use in testing medical devices, improving clinical diagnosis and guiding pre-surgical planning. The 30 contributing member organizations, which include more than 100 cardiovascular specialists from across research, industry and medicine, have access to the heart simulator for testing, enabling the acceleration of the program via crowdsourcing. The researchers have teamed with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) with the goal of accelerating the approval process of medical devices while spurring innovation, improving patient reliability and reducing costs. The Project has already been used to validate the efficacy of a novel valve assist device prior to insertion in a real patient and understand the progression of heart disease.

Dassault Systèmes Launches 'Lean Mine Construction' and 'Perfect Mine and Plant' Solutions for Natural Resources

Dassault Systèmes announced at its annual 3DEXPERIENCE Forum NAM two new natural resources industry solution experiences for mining, 'Lean Mine Construction' and 'Perfect Mine and Plant'. Dassault Systèmes' new industry solution experiences introduce greater agility into business planning, design and production to spark long-needed change. With 'Lean Mine Construction', the applications and knowledge required to help ensure that mine sites are completed on time and on budget, are all available on one platform. 'Lean Mine Construction' unites mining companies with their contractors and partners in an immersive collaborative environment for site infrastructure and processing plant design, project planning, procurement, and construction management. Mine sites can deliver optimal production and efficiency from the moment they are commissioned. With'Perfect Mine and Plant', all levels of a mining organization collaborate to make the company more agile in response to operational performance variation, emerging business opportunities and changing market conditions. Executives, planners, and mine managers use data from across the mining value chain, along with decision making applications, to optimize long-term plans, align financial objectives and ensure that all levels of the organization are synchronized, for greater strategic control. Key Capabilities and Benefits of Lean Mine Construction: Ensures better mining operational productivity through 4D simulation and modeling to identify the right site infrastructure layout and plant processing capacity before construction begins; Lowers costs and reduces errors by enabling design of modularized infrastructure and plant components, which can be tested and assembled in a virtual world before fabrication is approved; and Supports rapid adjustments to engineering designs when requirements change, and facilitates just-in-time delivery of components to site and further lowers costs through integration of design engineering, project scheduling, and procurement; 'Perfect Mine and Plant' includes: Reduces variability through optimized scheduling and operational control; Delivers on the promise of big data to improve productivity, efficiency, and cost control across mining organizations; Provides management with the data needed to achieve predictable production output and meet production targets; and Breaks down the silos between mining and processing functions and provides the simulation and validation capabilities required to allow innovative ideas to be explored and proven before they are implemented.
