Product Lifecycle Management Portfolio


The DS PLM solution suite is embodied in four key brands—CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA, and SIMULIA—which form one of the industry’s most comprehensive PLM software portfolios. Used separately or collectively, the vendor’s proven applications define, simulate, and optimize all products, processes, and resources in an all-3D environment powered by an open development platform. With DS PLM V5 solutions, all business processes are linked together—including change management, activity and time management, asset management, and more. By enabling employees to collaborate in real time while accessing and sharing the same up-to-date information, companies can increase communication and speed modification, as well as approval processes. As a result, all organizational groups and processes–from design through marketing to maintenance–can share, reuse, and enhance product information in the pursuit of an optimum business strategy. For Virtual Product Design: CATIA CATIA enables users to simulate the entire range of the industrial design process, from concept to product design, analysis, and assembly. The CATIA product line covers all types of design and engineering needs and seamlessly integrates with the vendor’s other brands. For Virtual Production: DELMIA DELMIA enables manufacturers to digitally plan, create, monitor, and control production and maintenance processes. DELMIA applications provide complete coverage of manufacturing processes. For a Global Collaborative Environment: ENOVIA ENOVIA addresses user requirements across the full spectrum of product and business processes, from small-scale teams to extended enterprises with many thousands of users. The ENOVIA portfolio consists of three product lines: • ENOVIA VPLM—management of highly complex product, resource, and manufacturing processes in medium and large extended enterprises • ENOVIA MatrixOne—collaborative product development business processes for enterprises across a wide range of industries, including synchronicity for semiconductor design data management • ENOVIA SmarTeam—collaborative product data management for small to medium businesses, engineering departments of larger organizations, and across supply chains For Virtual Testing: SIMULIA By building on established technology, respected quality, and superior customer service, SIMULIA makes realistic simulation an integral business practice that enables engineers and scientists to improve product performance, reduce the number of physical prototypes, and drive innovation.
