    John VANDEVENTER > Speaker > Dassault Systèmes® John VANDEVENTER > Speaker > Dassault Systèmes®

    Keynote Speaker

    John VANDEVENTER is an Associate Technical Fellow in the Boeing Commercial Airplanes Structures Engineering Design and Analysis Solutions team. John has worked for Boeing as a Structures analyst for more than 30 years after graduating from the University of Washington in 1989. For his entire career, John has used both CATIA (V3 thru V6/3DEXPERIENCE) and SIMULIA (Elfini, Abaqus, 3DEXPERIENCE) applications becoming a leader in the use of SIMULIA tools to simulate aircraft structure at Boeing. John has also worked closely with Boeing analysts and SIMULIA R&D to ensure that the needs of those who use SIMULIA solutions is communicated with those who provide them.

    The Transition to 3DEXPERIENCE, an Aerospace Simulation Perspective

    In 2016 Boeing began a transition to a fully digital enterprise. Part of this transition, known as 2nd Century Enterprise System (2CES), includes the transformation of our Engineering processes to be Model Based incorporating the concept of a Digital Twin by exploiting Simulation throughout the lifecycle of the products we produce. To facilitate this, Boeing has selected the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to be the basis of its engineering design and analysis toolsets. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will allow Boeing to break down silos between engineering disciplines allowing collaboration between people, processes, tools and data. As part of the process of transitioning to a digital enterprise, we must first transition the simulation work we do today from our current set of tools to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. The breadth of simulations and analysis Boeing will perform in 3DEXPERIENCE range from conceptual loads development to certification analysis to in-service support long after production has ended. This presentation will provide an overview of the structural simulations and analysis being transitioned to 3DEXPERIENCE at Boeing highlighting the benefits we are realizing, the challenges we face and new opportunities such as support of Additive Manufacturing.

    Modeling & Simulation at the New 3DEXPERIENCE Education Center of Excellence for Advanced Composites 

    A new joint partnership between Purdue University and Dassault Systémes will allow industry to accelerate the adoption of high performance advanced composites by joining MBSE with modeling & simulation to address real-world composites design and manufacturing challenges that couldn’t be solved before. At the new 30,000 square foot (almost 2,800 sq meter) 3DEXPERIENCE Education Center of Excellence in Advanced Composites at Purdue University, both students and career engineers will learn the skills they need to design, validate, and scale for the high production rates needed by industry applications. This presentation will introduce the new center and demonstrate that Modeling & Simulation represents the future of engineering becoming pervasive across industry. With an eye to the future, examples of composites modeling and simulation will be shown illustrating that the siloed approach to design will soon become a thing of the past.
