CAD Data Management

CAD Management

ENOVIA CAD Management capabilities offer a multi-site ECAD and MCAD design data management solution for the extended enterprise. Companies can collect, track, protect, and deliver ECAD and MCAD  design data seamlessly to business processes within the enterprise.

Managed work-in-process (WIP) model data supports the entire product development process by giving early visibility to design information, and allows the enterprise to collaborate before final product decisions are made. The immersive integration capabilities allow users to browse, query, check-in and check-out drawings, parts, assembly structures, and other items directly from within the CAD session.

In addition to integration to Dassault Systemes 3D CAD systems:CATIA V5, CATIA V6, SOLIDWORKS, ENOVIA CAD Integration is also available across all major MCAD / ECAD tools including: Pro/ENGINEER & CREO, NX, Solid Edge, AutoCAD, Inventor, Cadence, Mentor, Zuken.

Description

ENOVIA CAD Data Management is based upon a common architecture for design/engineering-centric, manufacturing/production-centric and simulation-centric processes.  Its online environment helps medium to large companies bring more innovative products to market faster.  Importantly, it has migration and coexistence capabilities to leverage legacy data while pursuing new projects.

ENOVIA CAD Data Management’s sophisticated technology enables design reuse through access to a part library and the exchange of information with partners.  Users can work on predefined design tasks and perform design impact analysis to evaluate potential alternatives or changes. Capabilities can be further expanded with a wide range of optional licenses to work on configured products, manage and track design changes, perform complete digital validation processes and execute comprehensive interferences-analysis.

ENOVIA CAD Data Management capabilities include managing content created with MCAD applications including CATIA® V5, SOLIDWORKS® V1, NX™, Creo, Pro/ENGINEER, AutoCAD, Solid Edge and Inventor as well as ECAD applications from Cadence® Allegro, Mentor Graphics and Zuken.  Connectors for CATIA V5 and SOLIDWORKS are included with Collaborative Innovation while other connectors are add-on licenses.

Regardless of the CAD tool used, the design information is available to all complimentary processes either directly or through synchronization with the engineering bill-of-material.  As such, the latest design status and information is reviewable as part of processes such as requirements management, program management, sourcing, materials compliancy, and product quality.
