High Tech Case Study Dongyang E&P
To achieve global leadership, Dongyang E&P needed to improve collaboration between product development teams. The company already had a product lifecycle management (PLM) system in place, yet it needed a platform that would facilitate collaboration and improve problem detection before going to mass production.
Dassault SystemesDassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, provides business and people with virtual universes to imagine sustainable innovations. Its world-leading solutions transform the way products are designed, produced, and supported. Dassault Systèmes’ collaborative solutions foster social innovation, expanding possibilities for the virtual world to improve the real world. The group brings value to over 190,000 customers of all sizes, in all industries, in more than 140 countries.
Equipment & Machinery
Dongyang E&P is Korea’s number one switch-mode power supply (SMPS) manufacturer. Their product includes switching mode power supplies used in cellular phones, office automatic supplies, and digital electronic equipment.
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
Dongyang E&P chose Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform to boost collaboration between its designers, engineers and manufacturing teams, and to shorten product development time.
In the past, collaborations between teams only began after a product took shape. Communication was limited to the development department. Today, all departments involved in product development collaborate in real-time throughout the course of a rollout.

- USE CASES
Process Control & Optimization (PCO)Process Control and Optimization (PCO) is the discipline of adjusting a process to maintain or optimize a specified set of parameters without violating process constraints.The PCO market is being driven by rising demand for energy efficient production processes, safety and security concerns, and the development of IoT systems that can reliably predict process deviations.Fundamentally, there are three parameters that can be adjusted to affect optimal performance:- Equipment optimizationThe first step is to verify that the existing equipment is being used to its fullest advantage by examining operating data to identify equipment bottlenecks.- Operating proceduresOperating procedures may vary widely from person-to-person or from shift-to-shift. Automation of the plant can help significantly. But automation will be of no help if the operators take control and run the plant in manual.- Control optimizationIn a typical processing plant, such as a chemical plant or oil refinery, there are hundreds or even thousands of control loops. Each control loop is responsible for controlling one part of the process, such as maintaining a temperature, level, or flow. If the control loop is not properly designed and tuned, the process runs below its optimum. The process will be more expensive to operate, and equipment will wear out prematurely. For each control loop to run optimally, identification of sensor, valve, and tuning problems is important. It has been well documented that over 35% of control loops typically have problems. The process of continuously monitoring and optimizing the entire plant is sometimes called performance supervision.
