Concept & Creative Design

Enabling stylists to directly model their ideas in 3D, providing them with a complete creative freedom.

In today’s highly competitive consumer goods markets, the style and artwork aspect of a product is one of the key differentiators against competitors and is crucial to gain immediate consumer excitement.  In addition, rapid changes in consumer tastes and demands are forcing companies to be innovative with their designs at an extremely fast pace.  The unique and powerful surface technology of Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Concept and Creative Design solution enables stylists to directly model their ideas in 3D, providing them with a complete creative freedom.  Realistic 3D geometric models can be quickly and easily created without prior sketching or prototyping, allowing them to be directly leveraged by the engineers.

In most organizations, creative and technical design teams are constantly driven by strict deadlines, causing them to be reluctant to adapt new technologies and processes. This is especially true if the new approach will take them beyond the comfort level of the tools that they are already familiar with.  The ENOVIA Artwork Integration is designed to allow users to access a PLM system natively from within the design tools of their choice.  This enables the design team to store their data in PLM and thereby sharing it across the enterprise without disrupting the established design practices of the team. Now organizations are able to collaborate much more effectively earlier and throughout the product development cycle.

DS PLM enables users to manage design and securely distribute product content based on company and/or brand level rules.  With DS PLM solution, changes are communicated easily and precisely.  The users can also subscribe to changes so they will be alerted when the changes are made.  Features such as Document Templates can be used to enforce the creation of new content that respects company standards.  Such practices can be extended to include your external suppliers so that design collaboration that is based on precise quality specifications can be established.
