Product Overview

SmarTeam Editor is the core, Windows -based product lifecycle collaboration application of the SmarTeam product suite. It provides business collaboration solutions that enable enterprises to share, exchange, view, and manage product information from concept through obsolescence.

SmarTeam - Editor enables businesses to manage various types of data and resources, including CAD drawings and assemblies, Bills of Material (BOMs), Office-type documents, including Microsoft Word and Excel, and more. In conjunction with the SmarTeam Foundation, SmarTeam Editor provides data security, file and metadata storage, and advanced (full text) searching.

Using SmarTeam Editor, businesses gain improvements in product quality, reduce costs, expedite project turnaround, comply with industry standards and shorten time-to-market. SmarTeam - Editor is complemented by a full application suite and best practices, including integrations to leading CAD and Enterprise applications, workflow and change management, Bill of Materials (BOM) and configuration management, multi-site support and more.

Through its Web-based interface, SmarTeam - Editor enables secure product lifecycle collaboration through the SmarTeam database from standard Internet browsers. In addition to EDR s Windows-based interface, the Web-based interface exploits standard web technologies to provide comprehensive access to the central SmarTeam database and managed files for remote individuals and teams working on multi-platforms (Windows and Unix). Using a Web-based client, users can manipulate product data easily in a dynamic and secure environment from any location.

Using SmarTeam Editor (both Windows-based and Web-based interfaces) and SmarTeam CAD Integrations, users can employ the SmarTeam Express methodology for achieving an end-to-end solution.

SmarTeam Express contains the following offerings:

  • SmarTeam Design Express (SDE) for design data management for design-centric implementation
  • SmarTeam Engineering Express (SNE) for BOM management and item-centric implementation.
  • SmarTeam Program Management (PGM) is recommended as an add-on to SNE implementation.

SmarTeam Express speeds up the product launch process by employing a preconfigured solution for engineering and design departments, and mid-market manufacturers. SmarTeam Engineering Express deploys best practices of working with Engineering BOM (E-BOM) starting from concept, through development, testing and eventually creation of the Manufacturing BOM (M-BOM). Engineering Express recognizes the importance of multi-CAD discipline, where both Mechanical CADs and Electronic CAD systems are deployed. Day-to-day product development processes are simplified by the adoption of ENOVIA SmarTeam s Express solution.

Whether within the enterprise inside the corporate LAN, or dispersed in remote locations, across the corporate firewall using a WAN, SmarTeam Editor (EDR) enables users to perform advanced searches and view documents without actually downloading them. SmarTeam Editor web-based client allows remote authorized company and supply chain members to create, edit, view, control, and annotate engineering and office type documents, while performing lifecycle operations, enabling them to modify, track and manage product data, improve worldwide collaboration and decision-making.

Integrating seamlessly with complementary SmarTeam products, design team members can have full access to corporate information, contribute to product development, initiate and participate in workflow processes (through SmarTeam Workflow), and keep track of program-related data, such as projects, tasks and resources (through SmarTeam Program Management) at any time.

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..
