ENOVIA Live Validation

Enables engineering managers, project leaders, and designers to oversee and participate in collaborative digital mockup reviews, packaging, and pre-assembly analyses within ENOVIA 3DLive and CATIA V6.

For many companies, reviewing and validating designs can be a challenging process with 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 Parts can be out-of-date or be incorrect for an assembly, review teams can be missing critical roles or include individuals who are not collaborative, and reviews can be conducted haphazardly with no consensus on issues or follow-up actions.

ENOVIA Live Validation shares a complete 3D report of how development decisions are made. With ENOVIA Live Validation, users access tools that optimize visualization, navigation, analysis, and communication. Users can analyze product consistency, display review presentations, execute design validation, conduct 3D meetings, reply to reviews and make better informed decisions.

  • With ENOVIA Live Validation, design teams can collaborate on digital mockup reviews, and packaging and pre-assembly analyses. These capabilities help minimize product development time, enhance productivity, and secure intellectual property by:
  • Conduct Design Review Meetings with Real-Time Access to Accurate Information
    To make the best design and development decisions possible, attendees in a collaborative review meeting need access to accurate, real-time, in-context information. In addition, meeting attendees need to “present” information in a quick and easy to understand format. ENOVIA Live Validation allows design managers and engineering teams to:
    • Build their design review environment digitally in real-time
    • Analyze the digital mock-up to gain early insight into key factors that determine quality, performance, and cost.

    These capabilities enable better decision-making by stakeholders, leading to faster time to market, quality improvements, and lower costs.

  • Perform a Review with Comprehensive Review and Analysis Tools
    ENOVIA Live Validation has review tools that allow users to access information, create slides, and to add text and annotations for accurate design analysis and information sharing. It enables managers, and designers to simply perform 3D review and capture 3D notes and information with a comprehensive set of services that offer:
    • Instant co-review of persistent data using: Markers, slides, measures, sectioning; Real-time sharing of sectioning.
    • Review Services that include: 3D markers; 3D sectioning with tools that allow users to move, manipulate and annotate objects; and 3D measuring.
    • Slide browsing that enables PLM compass “play”
    • Access in “read only” mode to relevant validation objects (context, replies, checks and concerns).
  • Use a Collaborative Decision Management Digital Review Process to Validate Designs
    ENOVIA Live Validation offers a complete environment to validate a product design using a collaborative Decision Management Digital Review (DMDR) process. Users can perform reviews, adding information and feedback related to issues, replying to previous reviews or other participants’ comments. Using ENOVIA Live Validation, users create ‘validation’ objects that remain fully associative throughout the product development lifecycle. Validations contain information to enable knowledgeable decision-making. Previously, review and validation results would be integrated into the product structure, which would affect downstream processes. ENOVIA Live Validation provides the capability for review and validation at a different level than the product structure without affecting the product definition. ENOVIA Live Validation takes full advantage of the Dassault Systèmes V6 infrastructure and user experience. The product offers user-friendly navigation and quick access to Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) information.
  • The Role of ENOVIA V6 and PLM 2.0
    ENOVIA Live Validation supports PLM 2.0, product lifecycle management online for everyone, and the ENOVIA V6 values: global collaboration innovation, single PLM platform for intellectual property (IP) management, online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes, and lower cost of ownership.
