3DEXPERIENCE Platform as a Background for Creating Transport of the Future
By Kiryl Badulin, Deputy General Director for Business Development, SkyWay Technologies Co.
The pace of scientific and technical progress has lately increased rapidly, especially during the last decade. It is due to the fact that data science and information technologies are playing more and more important roles in our modern world. The data-driven approach is more often used in various areas—production, services, medicine and even journalism. And, practical implementation of this approach is realized in the concept of Industry 4.0. Now, this concept is widely used by the world-class companies, and robotized production returns to the developed countries from China and South East Asia.
SkyWay’s mission is to create engineering solutions, aimed at biosphere’s preservation, solving global ecological and social problems and providing sustainable development of the humankind.
The main idea of SkyWay project is that transport should be a solution to the problems, but not their source, as it happens with the conventional transport. This innovative transport should be efficient, safe and environmentally sustainable. It is all provided through the special innovative solutions, know-how and new approach towards logistics.

The SkyWay transportation system is rather a complex and comprises several systems and subsystems. In the early days, SkyWay Technologies Co. used different software for design, engineering and construction of its systems, which were not integrated.

Consequently, data sharing was virtually impossible and development processes were not aligned. Thus, to bring our transport system to life, we decided to use digital technology to help us inmanaging our innovative products in a cost-effective way. The core of this approach is Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which provides the opportunity for digital design and product development.
The main principle of 3DEXPERIENCE is a creation of digital platform project design, mechanical engineering and production. Now, hundreds of SkyWay designers and engineers create digital twins of products, which could include millions and even dozens millions of elements. While obtaining the integrated digital twin of a product, we minimize time for possible amendments and eliminate conflicts and errors, when various components of the transportation system interface. In the future, SkyWay also plans to implement digital approach at the production facilities.
3DEXPERIENCE Platform also provides SkyWay with the opportunity to implement Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) approach. This implies connection between digital twin, functional model and RFLP (Requirements, Functional, Logical and Physical) model. We consider 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s RFLP approach as an additional competitive advantage because it provides a collaborative engineering methodology that captures, manages and tracks product requirements with complete traceability.
3DEXPERIENCE platform can also help us to implement an early validation of the requirements. By means of simulation modeling, we can trace the requirements before the production stage that will help us to save time for design and production stages and reduce the cost of products. As a result, this approach greatly contributes to a higher quality of the product throughout its lifecycle compared with the traditional approach.
Diffusion of technologies and innovations has become a trend in a modern world, especially during the last decade. Avoiding this trend, any company has a great chance to lose its competitive advantages. Thus, we consider 3DEXPERIENCE Platform as a background for the SkyWay sustainable growth potential in the world transportation market. And when implemented worldwide, SkyWay will make our lives greener, safer, and happier.
