Virtual 3D simulation software

Dassault Systemes provides a 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which enables life science clients to simulate fully functioning products, connecting innovative virtual 3D designs with patients, physicians, and other research, regulatory, and clinical communities. From the concept to delivery to the patient, drug manufacturers create and optimise a formulated product, and manage the delivery of the medicine to consumers, while gaining regulatory approvals.

With 3DEXPERIENCE, even the most challenging working conditions are addressed in a single platform, enabling collaboration, and a holistic view of product and process information at the corporate level to help you maximise market performance and improve patient outcomes.

Computer programmes for designing medical devices

Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform for the life sciences industry provides companies with solutions to ensure they have the right product, at the right place and time. Our ‘Licensed to Cure’ experience allows medical device companies to dramatically accelerate product design and evaluation with a repeatable and fully traceable creation process for product innovation, regulatory and quality management.

Improving design efficiency

At the department level, the ‘Licensed to Cure for Medical Device’ solutions help companies improve operational efficiency by better executing the various processes through a systematic approach, enabling companies to conduct more changes and accelerate the decision-making.

We provide the means to reduce the risk of uncertainty of the decision through impact analysis and a real-time visibility through a unified project management to better drive the business. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform facilitates the reuse of best practices by enabling cross department collaboration in order to expand your business and set up a regulatory strategy.

Complete product and process traceability

Successful companies will control information, product complexity and regulatory compliance, and lead the market with breakthrough innovations; in addition to achieving quality, speed and cost targets.

Our ‘Licensed to Cure for Medical Device’ industry solution experience ensures a single source of information for design and a fully documented change process for both the product and process. It allows medical device manufacturers to be proactive rather than reactive to increasing demands.

High-quality and 100% regulatory compliance is assured via a virtual design history file (DHF) and up-to-date device master record (DMR) that is directly linked to post-market quality assurance business processes such as complaints, non-conformance reports (NCR), and corrective and preventative actions (CAPA).

Expedite regulatory reporting

Successful companies will position themselves to jump-start projects by leveraging structured business information based on customer feedback, suppliers or internal practices, while treating regulatory compliance as an asset in the development process. Compliance and innovation must become complementary rather than conflicting processes.

Pre-market authorisation and review process templates for the FDA’s PMA and 510(k) submissions, in addition to other European and Japanese regulatory submissions to speed-up approvals and collaboration across multiple groups in the enterprise so that breakthrough innovations can reach patients more quickly.

Direct link to patient and physician requirements

Our ‘Licensed to Cure for Medical Device’ industry solution experience enables you to create a virtual environment for gathering customer feedback and requirements that can be managed in a holistic environment with full traceability that is visible to all quality, regulatory, and engineering staff, and will ensure product safety, accelerate innovation and master regulatory compliance complexity.

The key benefits of our services include:

  • Integrated framework for compliant innovation and embedding quality and regulatory best practices
  • Faster time to market
  • Increased quality
  • Master regulation compliance
  • Maximise IP reuse and select the best value to cost projects
  • Optimise resource allocation
  • Streamline the regulatory filing process to remove barriers to increasing innovation
  • Full traceability and automated reporting and filing

AB SCIEX: Life Sciences Case Study

AB SCIEX, faced with mounting global environmental regulatory requirements, needed a system in place to ensure compliance of its products, track emerging regulations globally throughout its supply chain, and deliver quick responses to customers and legal authorities.

Novo Nordisk Insulin Pen Simulation

An insulin pen may be small, but it is a precision instrument with a number of complex parts that must work in perfect tandem. Some pens are durable, containing a replaceable drug cartridge, while other disposable ones come pre-fi lled with the drug.


Bausch + Lomb sought to understand the engineering challenges of complex cataract surgery to improve its products, procedures, and post-surgical visual acuity.


Ahead of the competitive curve with 3DEXPERIENCE and ENOVIA.

Are You Ready for UDI?

In an effort to improve the quality of information in medical device adverse event reporting, reduce recalls and improve patient safety, in 2007 the United States Congress passed legislation directing the FDA to develop regulations establishing the unique device identification (UDI) system for medical devices.
