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 and 2D representations, including Product Manufacturing Information (PMI).

  • 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 of un-configured design product structure with associated 2D and 3D design data and necessary Product manufacturing Information (PMI) • From V6, the exchanges can be initiated either: o in interactive mode by the Designers, from the search window, the navigation window or the authoring window o in batch mode by an administrator o Or automated by triggers. • Product structure metadata is described using V6 XPDMXML schema • 2D and 3D representations are exchanged associated to the XPDMXML schema. • 3D representations are bi-directionally converted using V6 product converters, or additional converters from CAA partners or customers through the new ENOVIA VPM Central APIs delivered in V6R2013x, Thus allowing customers to develop their own xCAD converters to import/export xCAD data into ENOVIA VPM Central.
