Designed to operate on a PLM 2.0 platform, CATIA V6 is a 3D collaborative solution linking designers and non-CAD specialists. Note, the CATIA Portfolio has been rebranded, with the latest V6 release now being referred to as CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE.
CATIA V6 leverages the capacity of innovation for companies of all sizes in all industries by delivering breakthrough productivity design solutions powered by a highly collaborative platform.
CATIA V6 enables the full spectrum of next generation collaborative virtual design including systems engineering, shape design, mechanical and equipment engineering, and company knowledge reuse.
CATIA V6 redefines CAD from the purely physical product definition and expands it from digital mock-up to functional mock-up taking into account the multiple views that necessitates the product development (i.e. requirement, functional, logical and physical).
From aircraft to cars, industrial machinery, ships, and white goods, complexity of products and the systems that keep them running is steadily increasing. CATIA V6 enables you to model and compose complex products, while defining and executing their driving systems to manage this complexity and deliver products on time.
Creative designers must be equipped with software tools that enable them to easily craft and adjust the product’s emotional content through their designs, while collaborating with engineering to ensure proper coverage of product functional scope.
CATIA for Engineers enables Digital Prototyping including Analysis and Simulation for design and validation of function quality and performance at all stages of the design. 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 Systems Engineering integrates complex product behaviour into the product definition, enabling a lifelike experience which predicts real world performance. With CATIA Systems Engineering , system architects, product engineers, designers and technical experts define both technical and business aspects.
CATIA Experience brings together the Shape, Functional, Engineering and Architectural characteristics of a product definition to enable all participants to integrate the digital product experience. Ease of use, simple dashboards, powerful analysis, search etc. deliver the right information so managers and non specialists can find and interact with the product information they require.
