(Trial production and test)
ITER needs “virtual product data management” (VPDM) software for 3D digital mockup, essential for configuration management.
clash detection, utility routing, collaborative design with the Participants, need better tools to control the configuration and allocation of the available space.
CATIA 4 soon obsolete. Should upgrade to CATIA 5:
nearly all procurement models are in one system;
be in tune with manufacturers, who have already upgraded, and rehearse conversion processes with other manufacturer’s CAD systems;
tailor software systems essential in construction;
All project legacy data in CATIA, so no need to transfer to alternative if the project can obtain a good deal on price.
Project anyway has to work out means to deal with other CAD systems, to an extent depending on the level of integration of the system with others, as well as the detail level of the procurement.
During late 2003 and 2004 ITER IT has implemented Enovia VPM as data manager in conjunction with CATIA V4 and V5.
Process well-advanced with a complete switch to production work in CATIA V5 planned for the end of 2004.

20.4 A (H-)
17.4 A (D-)
Note 1) Power supply is limited to max. 1 A.
2) Heat removal of beam dump was limited to
100A/m2 . After the modification, try to
produce the required beam (200 A/ m2 ).
