Increase Global Collaboration Even in Complex and Configured Products
Leveraging a standardized product portfolio definition throughout the development environment allows companies to confidently efficiently design and deliver complex products to meet customer needs. Constraints based on what level of complexity the development environment can consume, develop, and validate against are reduced, providing fewer limitations on the portfolio that can be delivered to meet customer needs. Configured IP Management process enables engineers to navigate on product configurations in real time, author in a configured context and define specific configuration effectivities on any configured IP data structure updates. It also provides engineers with full control and thorough traceability of modifications made with Dassault Systèmes modeling and simulation applications authoring tools, thus governing changes implementation through the various stages of the product development cycle (design, manufacturing, maintenance, etc.) across the different impacted team, with capability to ensure consistent change propagation to downstream processes, and validation of the performed modifications. It also provides transparent integration of configuration and change management processes by enabling to transparently and consistently drive configuration effectivity through the changes, to navigate on configured structures while taking into account the changes according to their validation status.
Configured IP Management is available on premise.
Key Features and Benefits:
Direct access to configured context by engineering and design significantly reduces effort and errors through mis-communciation
Users can define effectivity for a given product component in the context of the authoring session, providing greater efficiency and better user experience
Changes are made visible in both the 2D tree and in the 3D space, reducing errors and improving the experience
Direct 3D access to advanced analysis of configuration and change related information provides designers with tools needed to confidently innovate on complex products
