FACC developing complex components

In this field, FACC uses software solutions made by TECHNIA PLM and the design software CATIA. Q-Checker ensures the compliance with data quality standards and verifies design guidelines. myPLM considerably simplifies the system maintenance and updating of the various CAx applications. The sophisticated FACC lightweight solutions allow for safety and for the reduction of weight but also for comfort and reduction of noise in passenger, transport and business aircraft as well as in helicopters.

For more than 10 years, FACC has successfully developed and designed these highly complex composite components for the aviation industry by using solutions made by TECHNIA PLM and Dassault Systèmes. CATIA is one of the standard software solutions for virtual product development in the aviation industry.

Longterm cooperation

An essential reason for the decision to cooperate with TECHNIA PLM as a partner in development and design was its in-house software development department and its solutions, the continuity for a long-term cooperation, the international presence and the short geographical distance to FACC.

Additionally, TECHNIA PLM is the market leader in the distribution of  Dassault Systèmes solutions and can, therefore, offer the appropriate portfolio based on experience, new technology and innovation.

TECHNIA PLM is applied on the premises of FACC in various departments and fields. myPLM, for example, provides predefined environments to simplify the selection of the appropriate OEM CATIA environment by the users and the compliance with the required guidelines.

“The application of myPLM means enormous simplification of cooperation, both internally and with the client. These tools are a useful support to us on all sites in the compliance with specified and manifold system configurations, the fast rollout and the management of additional software packages and new releases”, says Werner Strobl, group leader PLM & CAX of FACC.

Q-checker ensures compliance with the data quality standards required by the client and the verification of construction guidelines on the premises of FACC.  This data quality product developed by TECHNIA PLM also guarantees compliance with internal requirements.

“Complex tasks require strong and innovative partners. With TECHNIA PLM, we have chosen a reliable long-term partner with a suitable mix of products, solutions and services. It covers special subjects, such as composite design, electrical and aerospace sheet metal, but also many additional subjects”, explains Werner Strobl.
