Product Knowledge Template (PKT)

Create intelligent design templates that embed geometry and know-how to reuse with maximum security

Lengthy engineering changes are often the cause of delays and increased production costs. Companies need to capitalize their know-how with built-in knowledge templates to save time and focus on innovation.

CATIA Knowledge Template Definition enables users to easily and interactively capture engineering know-how and methodology for highly efficient reuse. As a result, this helps organizations share best practices and avoid duplication of effort.

It allows the interactive creation of feature, part and assembly templates which encapsulate geometry specifications, associated parameters and relations (knowledge) for associative reuse.This can all be achieved without the need for skilled programming resources, ensuring that all engineers can instead participate in knowledge sharing and capture activities.

For organizations working within extended supply chains, Original IP (Intellectual Property) in design data are not exposed. Partners are, however, still able to capitalize on this embedded knowledge.
