Paris or Alexander, in Greek mythology, son of Priam and Hecuba and brother of Hector. Because it was prophesied that he would cause the destruction of Troy, Paris was abandoned on Mt. -- IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) and Dassault Systemes (Nasdaq:DASTY) (Paris:DSY DSY Drum Storage Yard ) today announced that Airbus has selected ENOVIA VPLM VPLM Virtual Product Lifecycle Management , their 3D collaborative Virtual Product Lifecycle Management solution, combined with CATIA A family of 2D and 3D CAD programs from IBM. CATIA was one of the first CAD programs to provide 3D solid modeling. The program was developed by Dassault Systems, a French aerospace company. , to standardize product development processes. Airbus is extending its ENOVIA VPLM user base to several thousand users, emphasizing the company's commitment to IBM and DS' PLM solutions.
The ENOVIA VPLM solution has demonstrated its capabilities as an integrated part of the Airbus Enterprise Data Management system, enabling Airbus to perform digital mock-up mock·up also mock-up

2. A layout of printed matter. reviews and clash detection earlier in the process. Due to the demonstrated benefits, Airbus has decided to expand the usage of ENOVIA VPLM to all programs. The CATIA and ENOVIA VPLM combination is becoming the standard environment for all new programs at Airbus.
"Increased collaboration and the ability to capitalize on past projects are critical to clients' ability to drive a profitable innovation strategy. This is especially true in complex aircraft projects," says Herve Rolland, vice-president, Product Lifecycle Management, IBM Southwest Europe. "Using our PLM solutions, Airbus will be able to better address clients' specific needs, while reducing costs and product development time."
"This decision by Airbus reflects the strength of our partnership and our commitment to the company's future development," says Etienne Droit [French, Justice, right, law.] A term denoting the abstract concept of law or a right.
Droit is as variable a phrase as the English right or the Latin jus. It signifies the entire body of law or a right in terms of a duty or obligation. , executive vice-president PLM Sales and Distribution, Dassault Systemes. "The Airbus teams on each program will access a standardized configured Digital Mock-Up, and capitalize on the developments of previous and current projects. This will facilitate design and knowledge re-use, enabling innovation and accelerated product development."
