Design Reviewer

Design Reviewer enables real-time issue resolution on a virtual prototype by enabling collaborative digital mockup reviews at the sub-system or component level. Design Reviewer helps analyze and communicate issues as well as resolution ideas with full traceability of how the development decisions were made.

For many companies, reviewing designs can be a challenging process.  There are many steps to consider, from locating parts, to building an assembly for participants to review and record any issues. Parts can be out-of-date or be incorrect for an assembly, review teams can be missing critical roles or individuals, and reviews can be conducted haphazardly with no consensus on issues or follow-up actions.

Design Reviewer enables users to conduct informal reviews to collaboratively communicate, track and resolve any issues in the design authored with CATIA® 3DEXPERIENCE® or converted from other CAD tools into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Design Reviewer also supports collaborative review of multi-CAD designs referenced within a 3DEXPERIENCE product structure.   

Design Reviewer provides a comprehensive set of tools to analyze and communicate issues with slides, 3D markers, measurements, and sections to highlight critical issues to investigate during review meetings resulting in more informed decisions. The data-driven architecture of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables reviews to be managed with the associated 3D resulting in better collaboration and earlier resolution of issues.
