  7. Agenda What is SmarTeam Design Express for CATIA? 1 2 How SDE Resolves your PDM Challenges 3 Customers Key Differentiators 4 5 Typical Project Plan 6 Next Steps: Beyond Design Express

  8. 1 You need to store, structure and secure your product data 2 You need to keep track of changes to documents through revisions and maturity 3 You need to efficiently search for and quickly find the right data within its context 4 You need to enable the design team to share documents in a controlled manner 5 You need your designers to reuse standard parts and designs 6 You need to view various data formats without their native applications 2.1 Design Express resolves the most basic PDM challengesfacing the CATIA Design Team

  9. Store, structure and secure your data 1 • Store: Collect and store all product-related data on a single, secure server. • Structure: Organise the documents in standardized way, using categories such as projects, customers, users, etc. to create one homogeneous filing system for everyone, replacing the standard Windows directory structure. • Secure: Data is only accessed via a login ID and password-protected connection, stored on a server with security functions and with an automated tape back-up process.

  10. 1 Securing and structuring valuable product knowledge “We needed a tool to manage a wide range of information concerning product structures and relationships between parts ... because of the huge amount of data involved in our 500 product lines, some of the most complex of which contain up to 2,000 components…. there’s an incalculable gain in efficiency when data is entered once and reused many times.” Alec Gil, Engineering Manager, S&C Electric, USA • Challenge:As the volume of unwieldy CATIA data, complete with assemblies, parts, dependencies, references, links, etc. grows, the data becomes very unmanageable • Solution:SDE offers a pre-configured data model that structures the access to your CATIA data, replacing the standard Windows file directory with a product tree, profile cards, queries and wizards that guide users to find any CATIA object they need, any time • Benefits: • Speeds access to product knowledge, spurring innovation • reduces file administration headaches, lowering cost of maintenance • reduces file loss and duplication, saving IT resources and reducing errors

  12. Tracking changes to documents 2 • Keep track of the changes made to each document as it matures, without ever renaming the document or copying it to another directory. • Maintain each revision of the document, enabling access to and reuse of each revision, as well as comparison to previous versions

  13. 2 Tracking revisions, versions and product history “With SmarTeam production personnel access only the most current design versions, incorrect revisions can no longer get to the shop floor... Departments can collaborate to develop innovative designs and optimize their manufacture.” – Jason Lindgren, Project Manager, Sub-Zero Freezer Co., USA • Challenge: Reuse of parts in different products and projects usually requires modifications. The more complex the assembly, the more difficult to trace modifications. When multiple designers access the same files, tracing becomes even more problematic. • Functionality: Checking each revision of a document into the vault enables designers to easily retrace steps to find the exact version needed. • Benefits: • Full visibility into design processes • Avoid errors caused by using wrong revision • Comply with standards requiring product history

  14. 3 Efficiently search for the right data within context • Click once to see in which assemblies a design part has been used • Find out via a product or part search if a 3D design exists • Quickly locate all documents associated with any project. • Search by relations between data, for example, to find a specification document via its relation to a 3D or 2D design, or a new part design via its relation to a price quotation Search by attribute; saved searches

  15. 3 Efficient search mechanisms show data in context “Users can search and find parts, configurations, drawings and assemblies by any attribute, such as revision, drawing name, description, drawing number, part number, etc. The software tracks where-used and composed-of relationships automatically, making it easy to determine where a certain part can be found within different assemblies…” Jim Farrell, Lord Corporation, USA – industrial components manufacturer • Challenge:As data accumulates and file names are similar, it becomes problematic and time-consuming to find any given design by its file name • Functionality:Advanced keyword and text search and query mechanisms allow designers to find exactly what they need, and in full design context, allowing them to better evaluate if the file located is the most relevant to their needs • Benefits: • Save valuable time consumed in file administration • Avoid redundant design through quicker location of existing files

  16. 4 Controlled sharing of documents by multiple users • Protect the work of all members of the team; information is not overwritten, so each modification can be tracked individually. • Audit the system to see who performed which change at what time • Safely access the same document concurrently without modifying the original - when one user owns a document for editing, others can only use it in view mode.

  17. 4 Collaborative Design Management ”We work as a team using a number of linked CATIA V5 models and associated design tools to ensure designs adhere to defined rules ... the latest project data is easily available to all engineers employed on the project, thereby ensuring that engineers are not working in isolation; they have full visibility of all design changes as they happen.” Darren Caines, Integral Powertrain, automotive engineering firm, UK • Challenge: Designers collaborating on a shared data set cannot concentrate on pure design tasks if they need to worry about other users accidentally erasing or changing their work through inadequate mechanisms to control the collaboration • Functionality: Lifecycle mechanisms give designers visibility into each design’s status and detailed records of each revision, enabling them to confidently work concurrently on the same files • Benefits: • Drive innovation through meeting of minds • Raise productivity through efficient allocation of design resources • Reduce bottlenecks via better visibility into joint design tasks

  19. 5 Promote the reuse of standards and existing data • Promote and support the mandatory use of standard documents (purchased parts or designs) and ensure their correct use with no duplications or non-traceable changes in design • Reduce the number of duplications of similar parts to minimize stocks and enforce sourcing policies • Encourage the use of copies of existing product as starting points for new designs, eliminating duplication of designs in multiple projects.

  20. 5 Promoting Part Standardization and Design Reuse “Using (SmarTeam) to archive files also can reduce part counts and associated costs by facilitating design standardization procedures that uncover slight variations in multiple components where a single configuration would suffice. (It) greatly improves our ability to manage part configurations.“ Swagelok, USA – industrial components manufacturer (valves) • Challenge: If designers are free to select any parts or components, especially purchased components, the company will stock low volume of wide range of parts, causing inventory and pricing problems; starting new design projects from scratch expends valuable design resources on redundant work • Benefits: • Reduce inventory overhead and delays due to inefficient sourcing • Speed time to market and drive innovation by reusing existing designs • Functionality:Designation of standard or “master” parts for common components; use of “design copy” to jump-start new projects with proven, existing designs that can be innovatively modified to meet new requirements

  21. 6 View variety of data formats • Manage and map information inside documents through the SmarTeam integrations to CATIA, MS Word, MS Excel, etc. • Visualize via SmarTeam digital documents in any of more than 450 formats (CATIA, IGES, TIF, DWG …) that are stored in any location. • Display integrated MS Word and Excel files within SmarTeam without opening the applications 3D Models FEA Specifications and Documentation

  22. 6 View Various Data Formats without Native Applications “It is important for us to give access to our clients in order for them to visualize their projects in real time, and observe the progress, while securing the data and maintaining confidentiality,” Jean-Pierre Bregeon, ABMI, project engineering firm, France • Challenge: Designers prefer to stay inside the design workspace and to avoid devoting time and memory resources to view documents related to design that require them to open additional applications • Benefits: • Save time and resources otherwise spent to purchase, install, train on and maintain other software applications • Save designers’ time and memory needed to run additional applications • Functionality:SmarTeam enables designers, as well as other users, to view files in more than 450 different formats without needing the native application. This functionality enables designers to properly classify and link various kinds of documents to projects and to designs to ensure that all the data can be easily viewed in context.

  32. Agenda What is SmarTeam Design Express for CATIA? 1 2 How SDE Resolves your PDM Challenges 3 Customers Key Differentiators 4 5 Typical Project Plan 6 Next Steps: Beyond Design Express

  33. 4.1 Why Design Express over the Competition? • ENOVIA brands offer the only native, best-in-class CATIA integration on the market; • Competitors do not have the knowledge and focus to build an integration that provides full integrity of the data (maintaining all critical types of CATIA data – links, references, etc) • Competitors’ CATIA integrations are often built by third-party developers, and therefore are expensive and not synchronized with new releases of CATIA, as it is not their core competence

  34. 4.2 Why Design Express over the Competition? • SmarTeam provides the built-in flexibility that allows you to start bymanaging files and documents and then grow to managing document structures and item structures • Competitors focused on document / file management are not able to provide the full scenario combined with items, thus limiting the opportunity for future expansion to PLM • Competitors focused primarily on item management have added document management later as a limited capability, thus they don’t provide full document integration capabilities for engineers working within CATIA • SmarTeam is engineering-centric, focusing primarily on design lifecycle management • Competitors that began outside the PLM market don’t offer the functionality that engineering-centric companies need

  35. 4.3 Why Design Express over the Competition? • SmarTeam’s flexible data model, open API and foundation on proven, mainstream components makes the product moreflexible and customisablethan that of its competitors. It allows users to adjust the built-in scenarios exactly to their needs. • Most competitors offer less flexibility, so users have less ability to tailor their systems to fit their processes. • SmarTeam beats the competition at integration with multiple CADs, legacy, in-house and enterprise applications. • SmarTeam offers scalability and Design Express includes built-in upgrade capabilities to full PLM functionality using the same platform.

  36. 4.4 Why Design Express over the Competition? • SmarTeam has from its inception been geared to the needs of the mid-market, offering out-of-the-box functionality, low cost of administration and ownership, ease of use and rapid implementation • The competitors offer you an attractive starting price, but when deploying and trying to extend the scope of the implementation, you will discover high prices for additional functionality and implementation services, or realise that you have reached the ceiling already with your starting product • Owned by Dassault Systèmes, one of the industry’s global leaders, ENOVIA SmarTeam is a component of a comprehensive PLM portfolio, enjoying financial stability (CAGR in US$ of 18% since 1997),high investment in technology (26.5% of revenue invested in R&D) and exposure to the broad R&D resources of all the Dassault Systèmes’ and ENOVIA brands

  37. 4.5 Why SmarTeam Design Express?
