CATIA Engineering

CATIA for Engineers enables Digital Prototyping including Analysis and Simulation for design and validation of function quality and performance at all stages ofthe design.

Mechanical engineering is complex as assemblies are designed to perform a specific task with a specific target performance. Digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, allows product development teams to virtually create and analyze a mechanical product in its environment. Mechanical engineers must be equipped with these tools so that they can gain insight into key factors in quality and performance early in the product development phase.

CATIA Structure Detailed Design

Detailed Structure Design

CATIA Structure Detailed Design is used to complete design of heavy structures with realistic plate and stiffener elements. It provides industry specific features to create hull structure detailed parts.

The full integration of CATIA Structure Functional Design and CATIA Structure Detailed Design allows user to retrieve Design block information that was previously defined and assessed, to perform the detailed design of the structure.

When used in a concurrent engineering with CATIA Structure Functional Design product , Structure Detail Design delivers ship builders with an end-to-end solution that covers the industrial design process from functional to detail, and then to manufacturing.

  • Integration of Object Dictionary in PRM (Project Resources Management)
  • Knowledge integration
  • Generate Structural parts from Design Unit and existing functional specifications
  • Dedicated PLM structural objects to manage structural systems and connections
  • Instantiate small assemblies according to corporate templates dictionary
  • Collection of industry-specific features to create physical plates and shapes
  • BOM Management
  • Split Structure Systems by Functional volumes
  • Allows Structural Designer to generate Structural parts from Design block and existing functional specifications defined with Structure Functional Design
    Designers can reuse Functional Design specifications such as Material, Grade, Thickness, Profile sections, Functional parts, that were previously defined with CATIA Structure Functional Design. This approach results in significant productivity gains. Tight integration within CATIA V6 also allows the designer to reuse standard productivity tools such as the sketcher, catalog, knowledge, etc
  • Gives user dedicated features to manage structural systems and connections
    Users can use, define and manage such shipbuilding-specific parts and elements as : Plates (Deck, Bulkhead), Stiffeners on free edge (Web Frame), Stiffeners, Beams (Pillar, Stanchion). Users work with intelligent 3D objects to incorporate such information as material description, weight and other technological specifications important to production and analysis.
  • Provides a collection of industry-specific features to detail structural connections.
    CATIA Structure Detailed Design is a ready-to-use application. As a turn-key system, it includes a customizable library of industry-standard ship parts and features to speed users along with their task. Users can use, define and manage such shipbuilding-specific parts and features as : Endcut (Profile extremity re-limitation), Slot (Profile Cutout)
  • Provides productive tools to incorporate Shipyard rules and standards
    Tight integration with CATIA V6 knowledgeware products enables the user to remain compliant with standards throughout the entire design concept process. In fact, the designer can check classification and design rules to avoid design inconsistencies while enhancing collaboration. CATIA Structure Detailed Design allows user to reuse shipyard know-how by creating templates based on expert specifications. The templates are compliant with industry skills and allow the user to automate complex tasks in a few clicks. The result is a significant increase in design productivity and comprehensive instantiation of corporate standards and design practices.
  • Allows definition of project resources at project level through the integration of Object Dictionary in PRM
    Users have direct access to representations that are shared among all structural applications and various project resources. Because it is a centralized repository, the PRM (Project Resources Management) dictionary avoids duplication of information
