Product Key Customer Benefits
|Improve design collaboration across the supply chain
V5R21 leverages ENOVIA SmarTeam functionality to further enhance design collaboration, providing improved management of multiple CATIA environments. Offering seamless management of CATIA data originated in different CATIA versions, ENOVIA SmarTeam V5R21 design collaboration enables CATIA data management across the supply chain and enables suppliers to work with multiple OEMs. Suppliers provide OEMs with CATIA data according to OEM standards. All of these enhancements to CATIA improve usability, reduce costs, and errors thus enabling faster work, improved accuracy and time saved.
V5R21 enhances multi-CAD capabilities for exposing design data to engineering by enabling users to open CAD documents from a specification item, and closes the loop between SmarTeam collaborative engineering and CAD integrations.
V5R21 Design Collaboration provides improved performance and enhanced functionality and usability. The design releases of large assemblies can be executed as separate jobs within a system, keeping data integrity on a consistent basis.
The SmarTeam CATIA integration enhances management for CATIA drawings by improving the text mapping into title blocks.
Extend remote access to users over the web
In V5R21, ENOVIA SmarTeam leverages remote access for info workers by focusing on web and remote access. One of the significant developments is the enhancement of SmarTeam - CATIA Web Integration (CWI). Enrichment to existing Web capabilities makes access to remote users over the Web easier through improved performance and connectivity. Users can integrate with CATIA through the Web in addition to the desktop-based integration, enabling remote access to CATIA. This translates into better performance and better capacity, and more availability to support additional concurrent users. Improvement is also felt in usability, robustness and enables richer possibilities and more complex design activities as a result of improvements to functionality.
Web lifecycle visual components for SmarTeam s Web interface and skins enhance the look and feel and contribute to usability. Using the Web designer, users may influence the entire look and feel for the SmarTeam web-based client..
Enable better performance and efficiency of remote CAD data management
ENOVIA SmarTeam V5R21 supports data storage in vaults over HTTP protocol which enables better capacity and ability to support additional concurrent users. This extended deployment of SmarTeam systems enables organizations to collaborate faster and more efficiently, gaining better performance and easier access to data which is stored across this extended deployment. Relying on this platform, ENOVIA SmarTeam design collaboration over the Web provides enhanced remote CAD data management without having to be limited by distributed data storage considerations.
ENOVIA SmarTeam s HTTP-based vault platform provides improved connectivity and more options for various PLM deployment patterns.
Easy access boosts collaboration across the enterprise
V5R21 fosters collaboration across engineering and the enterprise with enhanced remote usability and seamless digital mock-up, and expanded project security.
ENOVIA SmarTeam V5R21 simplifies the collaborative process with a newly designed Web user interface that extends user productivity and ease of use. The visual makeover includes user cockpits, easy browsing and profile card viewing, providing an intuitive, friendly remote environment that streamlines work processes. ENOVIA SmarTeam s seamless 3D XML capability intuitively represents SMARTEAM-managed data, for a further enhanced user experience.
ENOVIA SmarTeam s seamless plug-in to V5 Digital Mock-up (DMU) delivers enhanced DMU functionality in a multi-CAD environment, enabling SMBs to enjoy the benefits of design review. Within SmarTeam, engineering users open the DMU window, retrieve the necessary CATIA V5 product data, perform mockup, analysis and validation tasks, and capture, store, manage and access the results, improving decision-making.
V5R21 enables the securing of data by project, extending collaboration while protecting knowledge assets. Security definitions (user authorizations) associated with the project are applied automatically to the data. Engineers can leverage this capability to ensure exposure to relevant parties only. The enhancement adheres to recommended models for enterprise-level security.
