CATIA Equipment

CATIA Equipment provides an integrated environment that enables the collaborative detailed design of electronic, electrical, and fluidic systems in context of a virtual product. While design is driven by the system logical definition to ensure conformity with product specifications, full traceability, and configuration management, knowledge rules are integrated to enable the automatic compliance to standards throughout the design process, all the way to the production of associative documentation for manufacturing. Such an integrated environment improves design quality, drastically reduces time needed for modifications, and minimizes errors.




Design Knowledge

Design Knowledge & Re-use enables companies to model, capitalize and re-use the full complexity of their engineering Knowledge, in order to accelerate and secure drastically their product development processes.

Design Knowledge & Re-use accelerates company’s business processes while ensuring compliance with its best practices and taking advantage of its collective know-how. It provide to the users an access to advanced design parameterization, knowledge capture and optimization tools and allows to define standard rules and checks for design quality assessment.
