France, on the 22nd of June 2017. In the framework of its strategic plan, Transformation 2020, the Group Latécoère has made the choice to build its “factory of the future” in the area of Montredon of Toulouse. It will be a fully automated, producing 24/24h, 7/7d, and with the latest software in the field of 3D design and simulation. In order to support and secure this project, the toulouse-based company has appealed to Visiativ and Dassault Systems.

A “Factory of the future” modeled before being built !
In the Face of this ambitious project of creation by the beginning of 2018, near the headquarters in toulouse Group, a factory zero paper, with lines of machining highly efficient and automated for the manufacture of technical parts complex, Visiativ has made the bet to make it live to the Group Latécoère is a truly immersive experience in this future factory.
“We are very proud to be able to collaborate on this beautiful project that is the construction of the” Factory 4.0 “. If, in fact, participate in this ambitious plan has allowed us to develop our skills on a portfolio of Dassault systèmes wider and in an area in full transformation, it has also enabled us to strengthen the link between the Company of the Future and the Factory of the Future ! ” says Laurent Fiard, CEO of the group Visiativ.
The Group Visiativ intervened in order to model the twin digital factory, through the development of a unique 3D model of it. Thanks to this modeling, the Group Latécoère was able to make the right choices upstream of the construction and thus secure the performance at each stage, from the design of the building to execution. In order to scan the building, the machines, work stations as well as the internal flows, the editor and integrator of innovative software solutions for the SME/ETI, Visiativ, deployed applications, DELMIA (DELMIA Engineering, DELMIA Operations, and DELMIA Optimization) available on the platform 3DEXPERIENCE of Dassault systèmes.
Thus, Visiativ, through the applications of Dassault Systems, is involved in the development of infrastructure, through the simulation and load balancing through the 3D model of the building, the simulation of the cells in context, or even the simulation of the flow.
“We are very pleased to bring the platform 3DEXPERIENCE at the service of a project of this scale. It illustrates the decisive role of digital actors, such as Latécoère, have chosen an industrial strategy “end-to-end” ; that is to say, from the design phase up to operations. This allows them to meet the challenges of the economy of experience’ and to strive for excellence at the international level. The geographical location of this new site was an essential element in the choice of this project. Indeed, Toulouse is for Dassault Systems, a territory in which we have developed partnerships very strong, and which, over time has become a real hub’ for our technologies, ” says Olivier Leteutre, managing Director EUROWEST, Dassault systèmes.
However, this industrial partnership between the Group Latécoère, the Group Visiativ and Dassault Systems goes even further by proposing to the company a true twin digital, which will evolve throughout the life of the building. It will be for the Group Latécoère able to execute and especially visualize, through its digital model, the changes before making them in the testing of many configurations and thus saving substantial time-saving.
“We chose this strategic collaboration with Visiativ and Dassault Systems to support our digital transformation, a subject of primary concern for the French industry, and provide us with a competitive advantage through the integration of advanced technologies. This technological showcase will participate in the optimization of our production tool in order to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow, ” says Michel Only, DSI, and a member of the executive Committee of the group Latécoère.
Group international partner of “rank 1” of the main world aircraft manufacturers (Airbus, Embraer, Dassault, Boeing, Bombardier), Latécoère is involved in all segments of the aerospace (commercial aircraft, regional, business and military), in two areas of activity :
