CATIA V6 Virtual Design
At a glance
CATIA V6 offers, through a multidisciplinary approach, a full spectrum of virtual design capabilities and enables efficient design collaboration to encourage innovation across the extended enterprise, far beyond traditional core engineering users. CATIA V6R2013 delivers a world-leading solution for 3D product and behavior creation. It puts 3D collaborative innovation at the heart of the company and helps accelerate its transformation toward a full PLM 2.0 approach, addressing all manufacturing organizations.
Global collaborative innovation: Broadens CATIA usage beyond designers to casual users within and outside the engineering department. Ground-breaking collaboration tools enable 3D brainstorming within the community of PLM users, to reach a new level of innovation.
Lifelike experience: Introduces a paradigm shift to enable first-life experience and bring 3D product design to life with unmatched realism. In addition, CATIA V6 offers compelling simplicity and efficiency with in-context 3D manipulators and natural 3D operations.
Single PLM platform for IP management: Harnesses collective intelligence, making the always up-to-date product definition accessible to the various communities from anywhere, at any time. CATIA V6 facilitates multi-discipline collaboration among designers, engineering users and manufacturing users from one unique IP repository, making the company knowledgeware assets available to all participants.
Online creation and collaboration: Reaches new disciplines with CATIA Systems and widens the traditional scope of CATIA to requirements, functional, and logical views of the physical product in a collaborative manner. This allows for direct traceability of the product from the beginning to end phases of creation. CATIA V6 delivers PLM objects that match collaborative design innovation, eliminating heavy assembly files, enabling true concurrent design, and eliminating the needs for high reference management between part, drawing and products.
Ready-to-use PLM business processes: Opens new opportunities for new industries such as consumer packaged goods, consumer goods, and high tech. The CATIA product portfolio continues to cover more industry processes.
Lower cost of ownership: Protects the V5 investment; as a natural extension to V5, CATIA V6 ensures a smooth upgrade and short ramp-up from V5 to V6. There is an easy transition to V6 with the use of the same modeler and ready-to-use migration path.
