Additionally, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides deployment options ranging from small centralized companies or workgroups to extended enterprises distributed throughout the world.
In the high tech industry, effective design management requires that all designers share the exact same data and design environment. Administration of the design environments of geographically dispersed design teams is greatly simplified with centralized administration at the enterprise level. Identification and tracking of defects associated with IP blocks, and the ability to share ideas, engineering change information and to resolve product development issues and defects amongst geographically dispersed development teams are critical success factors.
a unique modular approach to design data management which is optimized for efficient design reuse and multisite collaboration. IP blocks managed as modules are hierarchically combined into designs which are correct-by-construction. Data is managed at the file level within a module, and at the modular level of abstraction as hierarchical connections between modules. As the design changes, new data is automatically replicated at each design site in module and file caches and shared across workspaces.This data sharing infrastructure maximizes performance and guarantees the most efficient use of disk space which can be especially important for large hardware and software designs.
Managing and securing design data across geographically dispersed teams and throughout the extanded value chain is challenging. The management of product data and related design information must include early visibility to design information for all stakeholders, and enable true enterprise collaboration before final product decisions are made. Formal and ad hoc design reviews, accessible to all stakeholders, helps foster new ideas, identify issues and track actions to ensure closure for designs authored with CATIA® 3DEXPERIENCE® , CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS or other CAD tools.
For package designers, managing the artwork process is challenging due to fast changing product lines, global markets and varied regulations.

ENOVIA provides a secure and real-time environment for all users to find, share, review, and report on product information. Collaboration can be loosely managed or more tightly controlled with cross-functional change processes depending on the company’s business needs.
In this new age of manufacturing, it’s no surprise that news about your product launch reaches consumers across the globe instantaneously. However, if the new product is not immediately available in each region, consumers quickly move on to other alternatives. Gone are the days when a company could launch a product first in the developed market and then subsequently launch the product in the developing world. A well-executed global launch is fast becoming a business imperative to achieving a higher return on investment.
A company’s ability to reuse and protect intellectual property (IP) without exceptions is critical to short and long-term success. With proper IP classification, companies can accelerate product development and shorten time-to-market through reuse of design components and product documentation. Reusing previously validated product content increases reliability and quality while lowering costs. Collaboration is improved by enabling users across the enterprise to find and add their own product content.
Organizations must also protect their IP without compromising their ability to effectively collaborate both internally and externally. From a single enterprise-wide platform, organizations are able to manage all of their relevant product data and safely share that information according to organization, nationality or physical location. A common set of security rules and exception classification framework ensures authorized access and prevents unauthorized disclosure of intellectual property (IP).
