Manage changes and revisions

With 3DEXPERIENCE, the team can innovate with a higher degree of confidence and engage your consumers and customers early in the ideation process. Deliver smarter solutions faster by:

Enhancing productivity
Minimize risks and enhance productivity by making unified product information accessible to all stakeholders, anywhere and at any time.

Advance products with minimal effort
Connect all business functions with the model-based product definition. Explore, develop and advance 3D products with the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE.

Collaborate anywhere, at any time

Connect data, people and ideas on one platform and benefit from secure multi-discipline collaboration across distributed design teams.

  • Connect CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS, DraftSight, and many other mechanical and electronic authoring applications
  • Create and edit large product structures directly in the browser without the need for CAD tools
  • The single multi-CAD product definition utilizes existing data and know-how and ensures that teams are always working with live information
  • Tear down walls between the engineering and design departments with a unified product structure with no need for manual bill of materials synchronization

Evaluate before saving and sharing

With immersive PDM and PLM tools integrated through the task pane which is the portal to the platform. Keep your projects organized, on schedule and evaluate before you press save.

  • Connect 3DEXPERIENCE with the other enterprise information solutions your company uses
  • The controlled review and release processes ensure quality, requirement fulfillment, and regulation compliance

”The cloud-based system has been fantastic, and it’s worked seamlessly for us through multiple moves and expansions. You put your computer on the table and you’re immediately able to collaborate efficiently around the world’.’

Stefan Krause,
Co-founder electrical car manufacturer Canoo

Coordinate as a Change Manager

Facilitate changes and coordinates a close-loop collaborative change process that clearly communicates change decisions and assignments to all impacted domains.

  • Make informed decisions by obtaining a full impact assessment of change requests from all impacted organizations
  • Communicate change decisions and assignments to all
  • Improve product development quality by establishing governance standards for the entire enterprise to adhere to
  • Reduce time and cost associated with changes and mange with intelligent change management rules and automation

Manage release of your products

Work effectively with accelerated cross-team collaboration during the product development, ensuring productivity and visibility across the enterprise. This process fosters and accelerates multi-discipline collaboration through engineering responsibility assignment and tracking.

  • Manage Engineering Bill Of Materials with product items from multi-discipline engineering
  • Parts, technical documentation (CAD models and other technical specifications), Engineering BOM, release and revise engineering BOM and technical documentation
  • Enhance collaboration with web based 3d navigation

Electronic design possibilities

Connect electronic engineering with all engineering data to ensure traceability through the end-to-end development process. Plan and optimize the entire system at a high level to reduce errors and bring quality products to market. 

  • Improve efficiencies through collaboration by providing access to ECAD data directly on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Accelerate the electronic design process by providing impact traceability from requirements to deliverables
  • 360 degree visibility on impact and context from all engineering disciplines ensures decisions are made on the right data

Manage your projects

Deliverables-based project management links product development data to a project, enabling real-time monitoring and assessment to improve project performance.

  • Connect portfolio definition and governing projects the same system
  • Leverage a system that aligns the project scope with the project schedule and resource assignments
  • Reduce non-value added activities related to reporting task status
  • Directly connecting to objects under development allows project managers to anticipate issues and mitigate earlier
  • Real-time decision support through advanced Analytics

“Our shift toward becoming a technology, services and energy company must be collaborative. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform connects engineering to all disciplines in one digital company. We will gain agility, speed, and effectiveness to develop new mobility faster than ever.”

Luca de Meo,
CEO at Renault group

Standardization when sourcing

On the platform, you can seamlessly source your components among in-house content and 50 million parts from external designers. Thanks to a component similarity search its easy to enforce sourcing strategy with a fast alternative or double source supplier identification.

With Classification Intelligence, you can enable automated classification and detailed engineering comparison with market components. Then optimize your component reuse strategy by identifying your preferred content.
