CATIA Engineering

CATIA ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE

As products and experiences continue to increase in complexity, performance and quality targets are becoming more demanding. CATIA answers that challenge, enabling the rapid development of high-quality mechanical products.
Mechanical engineers equipped with CATIA 3D Modeling tools can gain insight into key factors of quality and performance early in the product development phase. Digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, allows product development teams to virtually create and analyze a mechanical product in its operating environment.
CATIA Engineering provides the platform which enables engineers to create any type of 3D assembly, for a wide range of engineering processes.
 

KEY BENEFITS

  • Create any type of 3D part, from rough 3D sketches to fully detailed industrial assemblies.
  • Unbreakable relational design - a new way to manage links between objects and related behaviors in configured assemblies.
  • Enables a smooth evolution from 2D- to 3D-based design methodologies.
  • Productive and consistent drawing update removes the need for additional user operations.
  • Process oriented tools capture the manufacturing process intent in the early stages of design.
  • A wide range of applications for tooling design, for generic tooling in addition to mold and die.
  • Advanced technologies for mechanical surfacing, based on a powerful specification-driven modeling approach

 

CATIA Systems Architecture

Managing product complexity

CATIA Systems Architecture solution ensures traceability from initial requirements definition through to final product delivery and support. It enables systems architects, product engineers, designers and technical experts to define the architecture and interdependencies of complex products and systems. This accelerates the systems engineering process from initial specification definition through to development, validation and right- to-market product delivery.

 

 

CATIA Systems Engineering

MASTERING THE CROSS-DISCIPLINE SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

Developing smart products has never been more challenging.  Developers need an integrated systems engineering approach that enables them to manage the complete development process.  Requirements engineering, systems architecture definition, detailed modeling and simulation of complex systems and the development of embedded software all need to be mastered in the context of the complete product.
The Systems Engineering solution from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unique, open and extensible development platform – a platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex ‘cyber-physical’ products. It enables organizations to quickly and easily evaluate requests for changes or develop new products or system variants, while utilizing a unified performance based systems engineering approach that reduces the overall cost of system and product development.
 

KEY BENEFITS

  • Leverage a best-in-class model-based system development platform to accelerate the development and validation of complex systems and products.
  • Ensure compliance with market requirements and regulations while improving time-to-market and reducing costs through world-class requirements engineering.
  • Collaborate across all disciplines to define a complete systems architecture through multiple operational, functional and component views.
  • Verify the behavior of complex products and systems, that span multiple engineering disciplines, through Modelica based modeling and simulation.
  • Integrate the embedded systems and 3D product design processes to leverage intelligent embedded systems in the 3DEXPERIENCE simulation of complex mechatronic products and systems.

 

CATIA Product Experience

Bringing it all together

Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, CATIA Product Experience brings together the Design, Functional, Engineering and Architectural characteristics of a product definition, to enable integration at the level of the complete product. It provides a social experience, where people of all roles and skills, generalist and specialist, come together to view, collaborate and review the overall project.
