7 good reasons to use 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

1/7 Product data available for everyone in the organization

In the upcoming weeks we will present 7 good reasons to use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in your daily work. Now let us present the first of the 7 reasons: product data within the reach of the entire organization.

The first product data is born early in the product development process, in the concept stage, developing and endlessly refining refined into the finished product. This process requires extensive collaboration and successes among design teams, sales, purchasing, production and so on.

Here the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the unifying factor. The design information is stored on the platform, well and securely, throughout the product's lifecycle. Everyone in the team will see the same information, view the latest changes and take their own actions within the boundaries of their roles.

One Single Source of Truth!

Many different tools are needed in product design: 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA, CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS, SIMULIA, etc. These software are available installed on premise or can be connected to the system (Collaboration Designer), enabling genuine Multi-CAD approach to the system, since the starting points and needs of the companies often vary.

3DEXPERIENCE is available on the cloud through internet connection and works on practically any device. Its purpose is to connect the team members with modern tools and product offerings by which everyone can participate in the processes related to the product. We will tell you more about these in our upcoming posts.

Remember these: 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA, Collaborative Designer for Catia V5, Collaborative Designer for SolidWorks


2/7 All data in the revision and product management

Endless amounts of information is created in companies' operations, which at best serves their strategic goals. For this information to be as usable as possible for everyone and to represent the current situation, the availability of information is the key.

Even though the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a broad set of various functions and software, solid PLM/PDM features are its core. Within the platform, product information is in the revision and change management – an advantage for the future, because when the company grows, the importance of up-to-date information is highlighted, and ready-made rules and processes are needed to guarantee fully functioning operations.

3DEXPERIENCE is a secured cloud service and works through a regular internet connection. The advantage of the system is that it updates automatically, allowing all users the same user experience, reducing the possibility of errors and interruptions. At the same time the platform enables new ways of working as people are connected to each other; with the platform's collaboration tools, it is possible to enhance decision-making and share tacit information and experiences. This is an asset of every company when being effectively utilized. No more silos, but collaboration.

In 3DEXPERIENCE product information is combined into entities. For example, related information, notes and attachment files can be attached to 3D models improving the control of entities and reducing human errors. What was previously envisioned is today utilized and in heavy use.
