Dassault Partners with Washington Tech Colleges
August 1, 2012
All industries have data – some more than others though. And some industries, especially those that fall under manufacturing, have engineering nightmares when data management solutions don’t do what they are supposed to. Many times it is software error but many times it is also human error. That is why according to the Market Watch article, “Dassault Systemes Partners with Washington State to Prepare the Next Generation of Aerospace Innovators”, the state of Washington’s community and technical college system has partnered with PLM provider, Dassault, in an effort to train future aerospace workers so that they are ready to use data management solutions their first day to work.
As the article explains,
“Washington has already invested $4.8 million for aerospace training and apprenticeship programs during Gov. Gregoire’s administration. With this agreement, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges is purchasing foundational applications of Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including CATIA and ENOVIA. The platform will be implemented during the 2012-2013 academic year, with 34 of the state’s two-year colleges each having access to the software.”
Dassault’s generosity is quite profitable for the company securing their stronghold as one of the industry leaders, but they are not the only company carving a niche for themselves in complex manufacturing. Inforbix, an up and coming provider of new data management solutions, says this about their offerings:
“Inforbix is a young up-and-coming company thinking BIG about the data challenges in manufacturing companies. We’re thinking how to combine elements of Open Source and data analysis with an understanding of manufacturing data to deliver an affordable data solution for companies of all sizes.”
We recommend that any company struggling with data management issues whether it is software or human related contact Inforbix for new solutions to old problems.
