YOKE Reduces Data Management Time by 20% with Dassault Systèmes PLM Solutions

Leading Supplier of Lifting and Safety Solutions Quickens Time to Market with ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express

Taiwan, August 22, 2007– Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that YOKE Industrial Corporation in Taiwan has implemented DS’s ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express for CATIA.  With this, YOKE has saved 20 percent of the time engineers spend searching for and managing technical files, consequently quickening time to market.

“ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express enables us to preinstall rules and protocols that prevent mistakes, centralize our CATIA and AutoCAD design data and drawings in a unified database, and enhance knowledge management for designers,” said Steven Hong, president of YOKE Industrial Corporation. “Aiming for zero product defects, we need to trace the end-to-end production process that involves our branch offices, OEM suppliers and distributors around the world. ENOVIA SmarTeam helps us with quality control management, certification compliance, meeting demands for more product varieties and supply chain management.” Starting from SmarTeam Design Express, YOKE has gone on to complete three out of the four phases of its ENOVIA SmarTeam implementation in just four months, and is already seeing improvement in its R&D capabilities and product quality.

Piovision International, a local Dassault Systèmes business partner, provided YOKE with excellent pre and post sales services, helping YOKE to save time and effort during implementation.  ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express’ predefined database structure, templates, scripts and best practice methodologies enable resellers to rapidly and expertly deploy it.  “Companies using ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express can expand and customize this open solution based on their specific needs,” explained Bernard Parrenin, general manager, Dassault Systèmes Taiwan.

ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Express is a pre-packaged solution that lets users get started quickly while providing a foundation for scaleable PLM functionality that will grow with the company’s changing needs.  It incorporates ENOVIA SmarTeam’s robust CATIA integration, the only native integration to CATIA available for the mid-market.  Companies can roll out a solution in a fraction of the time required by more complex solutions for faster return on investment.
