Once upon a time, your business started out small. Anyone on the team could find anything they needed, and the latest version of a CAD file was just a tap on the shoulder away. Now, your business is growing and your old process isn’t doing what you need it to do. Punch lists, markups and change management are getting to be a real headache. A missed requirement or the wrong version of a part could cost thousands of dollars in wasted materials on the factory floor. But there is a better way. 

What if you could connect your CAD data to everything you need to run projects from design to delivery? What if you could design, markup, make punch lists and manage changes, all in one place in 3D? What if anyone could participate, no matter how skilled or unskilled?  What if you always knew who was doing what on your team? It’s a better way to work.

And it all starts when you connect your data to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud!

From stress to success: unlock team efficiency with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Improve your design process with an all-in-one cloud solution

Product design processes are more complex than ever. Getting your product out on the market or in the customer's hands takes a lot of collaboration across disciplines, teams and companies. And engineers sit at the center of this effort, playing a critical role in pushing design processes forward and connecting teams.

And the team must participate, too.  How about that purchasing agent that needs a bill of material that directly syncs with the 3D model?  How about that stakeholder who needs to review & approve form and function without needing to know complex modeling tools?  And, how about the people on the factory floor who need work instructions on how to make it? 

Fortunately, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is designed to improve that very process. Integrated product development tools make 3D a common language, making it possible for designers & engineers to collaborate seamlessly on the same environment with other engineers and non-technical stakeholders. It is one single source of truth, from design to analysis to purchasing to fabrication to installation, from inside or outside your company. 

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud is an integrated end-to-end solution that lets you design, collaborate and keep track of your projects from start to finish. Everything works together in a single environment so you can deliver high quality projects faster, more efficiently, and without rework.  And since it is on the cloud, you can securely access it from anywhere at any time, even in a coffee shop!

Say goodbye to rework

Capture requirements and fix issues early when you use 3DEXPERIENCE on the cloud, an end-to-end solution for your design and production process.

Easily share designs

Forget file exports. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud offers safe viewing, markups and change management for your 3D models, all in one place.

Never lose information again

Keep track of all your CAD data, markups and project requirements. Every team member has access to the right information and the applications they need.

Collaborate with anyone, anywhere

Efficient and seamless collaboration is essential in every team. With 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA’s powerful database platform, colleagues, suppliers and external partners can innovate together more efficiently and effortlessly. This results in compressed cycle times and fewer late changes.

With 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA you and your team are always sure to access and share the latest version of your data. Different stakeholders are able to work in parallel on the same project, and save their modifications at the same time.

If you need different stakeholders to have different access rights, you can do that too. Whether they are reviewers or providers, they will see only the parts they need for their work but will not see the overall product. They can have some read rights on some parts and some modify rights on some other parts. You can easily manage all access rights on the platform. If you want to add people who are external to your project at a later date, it's also easy to do this thanks to the simple user and license management in the platform.



Maximizing Engineering Potential with Collaborative Design

Collaborative design tools are helping teams from design to engineering, simulation and manufacturing to increase their efficiency. Watch this roundtable with Engineering.com and deep dive into collaborative design and concurrent engineering for better project development.

Leverage true concurrent engineering

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform links all engineers and allow them to collaborate and work in parallel, with visibility into what each other is doing. 

Keep your IP secure

Protect engineering intellectual property by securing access to your projects based on different profiles. Suppliers, partners, customers are provided with only data they need and the company knowledge is well kept. 

Enable collaborative design review

Organize, view and track individual and shared issues, tasks, and change actions from design creation through completion. Understand the issues in context and solve them as a team.

I was working on the propellers’ size and position. At the same time, a second team was working on the shape of the new landing gear. Thanks to 3DEXPERIENCE, we realized that the landing gear was not optimally positioned with regard to the propellers. So, we were able to detect this error at an early stage and put the right constraints on the design of the landing gear.
