Product Objective

ENOVIA® VPM® CentralTM provides large engineering teams with a single Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) environment to handle sophisticated product development processes and manage complex products design with maximum traceability and flexibility.

· Foster innovation through global teaming and workspaces · Eliminate redundant and inaccurate data with global access to document storage and retrieval ·Maximizedevelopmentefficiencies through interoperable processes that span concept-to-retirement · Improve operations by taking advantage of validated industry best practices and process excellence · Enable best fit and process through role-based functionality

Product Overview

Integrated and built on a common architecture with CATIA®, ENOVIA VPM Central helps medium to large companies take more innovative products to market faster by providing collaborative Virtual Product Management (VPM) of complex product, process and resource information-- from marketing and design to manufacturing and maintenance. ENOVIA VPM Central provides large engineering teams using V6 authoring applications (CATIA, DELMIA® and SIMULIA®) with a single PLM environment enabling them to: ·managetheirproductlifecyclemanagement ·optimizedesignreusethroughacatalogofparts ·performdesignreviewandvalidation ·exchangePLMinformationwithpartners ·carryoverandreuseDassaultSystèmeslegacydatainV6aswellassophisticated mechanisms to handle large number of users and complex products.

Product Highlights

Enable Multi-discipline Engineering Collaboration ENOVIA VPM Central manages all V6 authoring data in one unique environment and one single database promoting collaboration across different teams and disciplines (design, manufacturing, simulation). The product provides users with access to all PLM management tools (versioning, maturity, lock / unlock, etc). ENOVIA VPM Central automatically determines assembly components that are out-of-date, delivering the right context quickly for accurate and fast updates.BysynchronizingtheenterpriseEngineeringBillofMaterials(EBOMs)andengineering product structure, ENOVIA VPM Central keeps a consistent and updated view between enterprise and engineering disciplines. Assess Impact of Design Modifications in Real-Time Users can navigate on any kind of relations between design components and related items such as other design, simulation, drawing, manufacturing processes, Functional and Logical views, etc. Better decision-making occurs when users can anticipate the impact of design modifications.

Product Highlights


Follow Design Modifications in Real-Time Users can subscribe via emails and pop-ups to modification warnings delivered on any objects (design, manufacturing, simulation) in the database. Product development enhancements occur more quickly as concurrent engineering intensifies. Manage Engineering Task ENOVIA VPM Central helps companies become more agile because changes are executed faster when tasks are defined explicitly, fully-documented, and all affected-components are attached. Accurate progress assessment occurs because tasks are linked directly to projects and programs, so design activity is directly visible to the project leader. Leaders can assign tasks to different designers, reviewers, etc. as project responsibilities change. Access Catalog of Design Components for Quick Reuse Users can create and reuse catalogs of any objects and disciplines. Catalog creators can add keywords enabling users to findandretrieveinformationquickly.Acentralizedviewtomanage data is available because the catalog and enterprise libraries are connected. Perform Digital Review ENOVIA VPM Central provides a first level of 3D tools with annotations, markup, etc., enabling customers to collaborate efficiently. Integrate with Enterprise Environment CustomerscancustomizetheirVPMdatamodeltobetterfittheir business processes. They can also define specific roles with different access rules to further protect their IP further. Migrate Data from Legacy Dassault Systèmes PLM Systems Using ENOVIA VPM Central, customers can carry over CATIA® V4 and V5 files as well as ENOVIA® VPM® V4 and ENOVIA® Designer CentralTM data and metadata into V6 enabling to protect existing intellectual property.

Extend Capabilities with Dedicated Virtual Product Management Add-ons ·ENOVIA® VPM® Configured Environment enables engineers to filter and navigate on product configurations, design in a configured context, and define specific effectivities for added and modified product components. ·ENOVIA® VPM® Change Tracking provides engineers with full control and traceability of design modifications through the various stages of the product development cycle (design, manufacturing, maintenance, etc). ·ENOVIA® VPM® Interference Check helps companies increase product design quality by enabling designers to detect product interferences and correct errors earlier in the product development process. ·ENOVIA® VPM® Interference Manager improves design quality, enhances time to market, and keeps costs in control by detecting, tracking, and managing interferences on complex and large digital mockups. ·ENOVIA® VPM® Digital Validation enables engineering managers and project leaders to oversee and participate in collaborative digital mockup reviews, packaging, and preassembly analyses. ·ENOVIA® System Functional Logical Definition defines the functional and logical aspects of a product and links them to the physical definition of a product, ensuring a full traceability from product specifications to the actual 3D design. ·ENOVIA® VPM® Supply Chain Collaborative Engineering enables OEMs and suppliers to share PLM information when both are usingDassaultSystèmesV6platform. ·ENOVIA® VPM® CATIA® V4 and V5 Coexistence enables CATIA® / ENOVIA® V4/V5 customers to work on CATIA® V6 projects while leveraging existing investments and intellectual property. ·ENOVIA® VPM® Configured STEP Interface imports large STEP files into V6. The role of ENOVIA V6 and PLM 2.0 ENOVIA VPM Central supports PLM 2.0, product lifecycle management online for everyone, and the ENOVIA V6 values: global collaboration innovation, single PLM platform for intellectual property (IP) management, online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes, and lower cost of ownership.
