ENOVIA VPM Configured STEP Interface

ENOVIA® VPM Configured STEP Interface imports STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product Model data) files into the V6 environment.

Working globally is common today but the inherent problems remain — redundant, inaccurate data because of incompatible systems, language barriers, time zones, etc. Data is gathered and managed through a variety of sources, with little integration, creating information silos that prevent the right information from getting into the right hands. The result is that stakeholders, from engineering to purchasing, make product-related decisions based on faulty data. STEP provides a single product data standard that integrates the data. With STEP, engineering, manufacturing, and support functions have a common basis for implementing, sharing, and archiving product-related information.

STEP is an international product data standard (ISO 10303) that provides a computer-interpretable definition of the physical and functional characteristics of a product throughout its lifecycle. The standard is much broader than the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification Standard (IGES), which defines a neutral data format that allows the digital exchange of Computer-Aided (CAD) systems. The nature of STEP makes it suitable not only for neutral file exchange, but also as a basis for implementing and sharing product databases and archiving.

ENOVIA VPM Configured STEP Interface delivers an efficient way to carry over large set of data from any Product Data Management (PDM) system into V6. The product supports very large assemblies and configurations and is appropriate for industries such as aerospace and defense, industrial equipment, and automotive.

  • Exchange specific data between project partners with large data volumes and heterogeneous PDM systems installed
  • Fosters innovation through global innovation by implementing and sharing product databases
  • Improve quality through accurate information for all users
  • Enhance decision-making by putting the right information in the hands of the right people
  • The Role of ENOVIA V6 and PLM 2.0
    ENOVIA VPM Configured STEP Interface supports PLM 2.0, product lifecycle management online for everyone, and the ENOVIA V6 values: global collaboration innovation, single PLM platform for intellectual property (IP) management, online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes, and lower cost of ownership.
