CHALLENGE

With digital prototyping already in place, Dassault Falcon Jet needed to increase efficiency and productivity in the upholstery shop. By acquiring a Versalis leather cutting solution, the customer sought to revolutionize its cutting room, as well as ready operations for future challenges. 

SOLUTION

Because flexibility is even more important to the production of one-off custom interiors than to serial manufacturing, the digitalized processes enabled by Lectra’s DesignConcept prototyping software and Versalis leather cutting solution have enabled the customer to not only expedite operations, but also reinforce its reputation as a world-class aircraft manufacturer delivering advanced business jets meeting the exacting specifications of their clientele.
