Designed specifically for small and medium businesses, CATIA PLM Express provides affordable and easy access to PLM for companies like yours
LEADING THE WAY TO PRODUCT SUCCESS
As the world leader in product design software solutions powered by 3D, CATIA applications and services enable businesses of all sizes in all industries around the world to digitally define products, from the simplest to the most complex. CATIA can be applied to a wide variety of industries and is used to design anything from an airplane to jewelry and clothing.
Open, scalable, and easy to deploy, CATIA addresses the complete product development process from product concept and specification through product-in-service and facilitates true collaborative engineering across disciplines. Capitalizing on 25 years of extensive experience working with world-class customers, CATIA has developed software and services to optimize critical processes in key industries. A pioneer solution and a standard for many industrial processes, CATIA bears Dassault Systemes imprint of cutting-edge technology, functional customization, and intensive support. By constantly learning from our customers, we can rapidly tailor our solutions to changing production contexts and new business environments, in turn helping our customers to transform their business and increase value for their own clients.
CATIA PLM EXPRESS DELIVERS ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY AND BENEFITS OF CATIA ORGANIZED INTO SIX COMMON ROLES TO ADDRESS SPECIFIC BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS AND ORGANIZATIONAL DEFINITIONS.
The layout engineer defines the product architecture with a comprehensive layout driven by product specifications, key dimensions and component placement in order to ensure product feasibility and detailed design collaboration. With CATIA PLM Express, 2D/3D technologies are flawlessly integrated for easy and rapid iterations in order to achieve the conceptual phase of the product and concurrently activate detailed design. Optimized design methodologies are captured in templates and reused interactively by all designers, resulting in dramatic productivity gains and providing agility for design changes.
Style is one of the crucial keys to develop customer loyalty and capture new clients. Industrial designers need intuitive and easy-to-use solutions to Design at the Speed of Imagination? and make their ideas come to life. CATIA PLM Express enables designers to work concurrently on style and engineering, and simulate the product?s appearance for quick style validation. Integrating the styling process with detailed design and manufacturing allows companies to quickly launch new ideas in the marketplace
To deliver the right products to eager customers in less time than ever before, mechanical and tooling designers need to complete tasks in minutes, instead of hours or days, and to design products right the first time. CATIA PLM Express fosters the design of fabricated, molded, cast, forged, machined, and composite parts with first-class, robust solutions. The unique and powerful specification-driven modeling approach promotes efficient concurrent engineering between styling and mechanical shape design, while ultra-fast functional modeling fosters productivity and flexibility.
The growing complexity of products and the drive to reduce development time makes it critical to visualize the full virtual product, including the mechanical components as well as fluid, electrical and other systems. CATIA PLM Express eases the definition of a products equipment such as piping, tubing or the electrical control and power systems. The design of physical wire harnesses is driven by logical specifications and is integrated with harness manufacturing. The realistic simulation of 3D wire harness packaging in an integrated environment reduces design time and improves the overall quality of large-scale electrical systems.
OPTIMIZE & REVIEW
Todays manufacturing industry demands an extensive use of analysis, simulation, and collaborative review for better product assessments earlier in the design process. CATIA PLM Express offers a broad portfolio of powerful finite element modeling and analysis solutions, fully integrated within the design environment to address the needs of analysis engineers and designers. Reviewers and designers are connected to make quick and efficient decisions with advanced collaborative reviews on digital prototypes directly in the 3D design environment.
Ensuring maximum product quality and manufacturing efficiency requires an easy-to-use and innovative NC programming and machining simulation solution, fully immersed within the design environment. Widely used in large and small companies handling 2.5-axis milling, 3-axis dedicated to mold tooling manufacture, 4- and 5-axis complex machining, as well as lathe machining, across manufacturing segments (prototype, mold and die, complex aerospace parts, composites parts manufacturing etc.), CATIA PLM Express significantly reduces overall manufacturing process time.
