ENOVIA Multi-Discipline Exchange for X-PDM

ENOVIA® Multi-Discipline Exchange for X-PDM enables bi-directional data exchange between ENOVIA® VPM Central™ (or ENOVIA VPM Team Central) and a non-DS PDM system.

ENOVIA Multi-Discipline Exchange for X-PDM relies on the V6 Event Bus architecture delivered by ENOVIA® Live Collaboration (CPF) to empower the bi-directional exchange of an un-configured design product structure with its associated 3D exact geometry. The exact geometry is exchanged using either the V5 CATPart or STEP Part21 as the intermediate format, depending on available xCAD conversion tools. Ideally, the non-DS CAD data should be converted into the V5 CATPart format to ensure a seamless migration with advanced design capabilities in V6.

  • Consolidate V6 product definition with design data from other enterprise systems.
  • Consolidate and organize the digital mockup made with data authored in V6 and in others PDM systems.
  • Update other enterprise systems with V6 design data.
  • Product Structure Synchronization Scenario
    Bi-directionally exchange un-configured design product structure with associated 3D exact geometry. From V6, the exchanges can be initiated in interactive mode by the CATIA® designers or can also be automated in batch mode by an administrator. 3D exact geometry can be exchanged using STEP or V5 CATPart formats. Product structure metadata is described using V6 XPDMXML product schema. Synchronize attributes, lifecycle state and versioning on product reference and 3D representations. The “ProductMirror” event is used for product structure exchange automation.
  • ENOVIA OOTB Setup compliancy
    When ENOVIA Multi-Discipline Exchange for X-PDM is deployed along with ENOVIA VPM Team Central or ENOVIA VPM Central using the available ENOVIA OOTB Setup, the applications can be used immediately in production. This eliminates the need for specific customizations and reduces the time and effort for enterprise deployments. For more details on the OOTB setup, please refer to the ENOVIA VPM Central Business Fact Sheet.
  • The Role of ENOVIA V6 and PLM 2.0
    ENOVIA Multi-Discipline Exchange for X-PDM supports PLM 2.0, product lifecycle management online for everyone, and the ENOVIA V6 values, which are:Global collaborative innovation Single PLM platform for intellectual property (IP) management Online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes Lower cost of ownership.
