EDS Technologies has announced a tie-up with ICEM, a Dassault Systèmes company, to enhance its PLM portfolio with "ICEM Shape Design" solutions, to address the shape design and styling market.
Richard Brown, regional business development manager at ICEM stated, "This appointment is part of our overall strategy for extending ICEM's reach further into our traditional areas of automotive concept development and Class A surfacing as well as integrating ICEM Shape Design into our customers' PLM processes.”
The "ICEM Shape Design" software suite, based on Dassault Systèmes CAA V5 architecture is a fully integrated component of a PLM system environment. As a result, a seamless workflow of design data is created from initial surface model to final design approval, whilst allowing visibility to all associated manufacturing functions.
"The automotive industry has spearheaded putting aesthetics at the heart of the engineering process. One of the most critical steps is the 'Class A Surface' process, which creates perfect surfaces from styling sketches. With ICEM's unique set of technologies and expertise in this domain combined with EDST's recognised leadership in 3D and PLM, customers will benefit from a new level of integrated process performance from styling concepts to final shape", said S Senthil, president, EDS Technologies.
