Product Key Customer Benefits
|Provides a single desktop for designers to search & navigate on product reference
VPM Navigator provides a simple and secured access to the V5 product reference information. All VPM Navigator capabilities are available via CATIA workbenches providing a common feeling to CATIA users. All information from the product reference managed by ENOVIA V5 can be found from easy but comprehensive query capabilities. Designers can navigate on the product structures to be directly informed on the current status, properties or concurrent usage to all parts. It allows designers to focus on the creative aspect of their job while ensuring that the corporate standards for Virtual Product Development Management are being followed.
Simplifies design environment building from the configured product
VPM Navigator drastically reduces the number of steps required to build a design context. It provides flexible and powerful methods to build a context from the structure or from a 3D representation of the product. Volume search, part proximity, attributes filtering or product configuration or any combination of these can be performed. This context, built directly from the complete & real-time configured product reference, leads directly to the product exactness, avoiding errors when designing due to unknown context.
Promotes real-time communication between designers
VPM Navigator boosts time cycle for development as it delivers, real time communication tools for the design community. Designers can subscribe to be informed, in real-time, of design changes on any part: they are more reactive to modifications done by their peers. With instant connectivity tools, such as awareness or chat, engineers can communicate easily and spontaneously within working groups for concurrent design and reviews. When used in a client/server mode, connectivity takes benefits from standard communication robust solutions and connects V5 designers to the full extended enterprise, directly from CATIA.
