Dassault Systèmes the 3DEXPERIENCE Company and world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions has entered the mining industry supply chain.

The company has announced today the launch of “Perfect Order”, a solution experience for natural resources that improves the efficiency and profitability of a mining company’s supply chain.

Perfect order will assist in end to end supply chain management capabilities allowing better visibility, control and predictability across operations.

With increased external pressures on mining companies to deliver commodity shipments

Mining companies will receive a holistic view of the entire supply chain, from infrastructure constraints and bottlenecks, to labour shortages or the financial impact of an operational change.

In the modern industry, where technological innovation is not limited to machinery and a shift towards data analysis, companies can plan across supply chain functions to ensure they meet forecast demand, visualise all activities in their supply networks and optimise the flow of goods, resulting in greater predictability for their business.

“Mining companies are looking to experience the digital transformation that has brought operational stability, enterprise agility and improved business performance to other industries,” said Marni Rabassó, Vice President Natural Resources Industry, Dassault Systèmes.  “Dassault Systèmes offers a diverse set of solutions to the mining industry that stems from decades of technological expertise.  With ‘Perfect Order,’ mining companies will uncover hidden value in increased efficiency of the supply chain, which also improves the customers’ delivery experience.”


What can Perfect Order do for mining companies?

  • Provide what Dassault describes as a “single source of truth”, connecting all planning decisions, from mine to port.
  • Improved shipment forecasting and logistics planning integrating market demand forecasts, availability of commodities at mine sites, and the capacity of transport networks as well as predictive intelligence that leverages historical data and causal factors such as price and GDP.
  • Real-time key performance indicators on the impact of planning decisions that allow for rapid adjustments to be made to keep deliveries, specifications and budget on track.
  • Ability to match supply and demand to resource capacity, maximising fulfilment of contracts and resulting in fewer penalties and an improved customer experience.


For those of you, we say through gritted teeth, who are lucky enough to be attending Minexpo 2016 this week, you can catch up with Dassault Systèmes at booth 2453.
