Paris, France— Schneider Electric and Dassault Systemes recently launched a partnership in which Schneider started a new firm, Dextus, to sell software from Dassault’s Delmia Solutions subsidiary.roduction engineering software.

'Until now, Schneider Electric has brought its industrial customers high performance automa-tion solutions for their production lines. With Dextus and Delmia solutions, Schneider Electric will bridge the gap between automation and process design and maintenance,' says Eric Pilaud, Schneider’s executive VP for strategic deployment.

Bernard Charles, Dassault’s president and CEO, explains that, “Teaming with Schneider Electric is an ideal way for Dassault Systemes to extend the advantages of virtual product development to the companies in this sector. The partnership is also an important step in our open strat-egy to expand our boundaries beyond PLM.'

Dassault adds that it new product line, Delmia Automation, enables users to digitally define, control, and monitor automated systems. Delmia includes a Logic Control Modeler (LCM) that provides a 'digital and generative model' of the control logic of an entire automation system independent of the PLC hardware. In addition, Delmia Automation will deliver PLC program vali-dation entirely in a 3-D virtual environment. Control and process engineers will now work on a common, collaborative platform.

As a result, Dextus will be able develop services needed to implement a new approach for end-users, line and machine builders from production process definition to commissioning. The new company will focus on consulting around organization, project management, design process definition, information system definition and implementation. Dextus also will provide companies with new solutions and approaches to help them improve industrial performance, reduce startup time on the manufacturing floor, and shorten time to market for new products.

Dextus and Delmia Corp. will extend Delmia PLM solutions for Production Engineering activities ranging from process planning to general assembly processes and factory simulation to address new industry sectors, such as discrete manufacturing, consumer package goods, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals. In addition, Dextus will sell and provide services for Delmis PLM solutions and Delmia Automation.
