The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is an open architecture that can customize and integrate customer data in a single environment, broadening the collaborative capabilities of ENOVIA. Together, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and ENOVIA enable effective collaboration that drives successful product innovation.
In addition to augmenting the vitally important job of product innovation, ENOVIA helps you ensure sustainable, profitable growth. The development and bringing to market of the right product, at the right time, and at the right price, are the core of creating sustainable business value. As a business experience platform, 3DEXPERIENCE orchestrates the various ENOVIA capabilities from product concept to product launch.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the bridge between ENOVIA capabilities and the innovators creating new products. Capabilities such as Product Planning and Management use “invisible governance” to facilitate decision-making in real-time. Strategic Customer Relationship Management introduces consumer preferences up front in the design process, facilitating “co-creation” by product designer and end user. Collaborative partnering with strategic suppliers helps in virtually eliminating supplier issues in the product development process. Quality and Compliance Management are the foundation for issue prevention, a key factor in any successful global product launch. In addition, IP Classification and Protection guards a company’s intellectual property and manages information, for global and simultaneous global product launches.
Imagine your company has 20 concurrent projects, 1,500 engineers and 150 suppliers. Let’s also imagine your engineers are introducing 5,000 new parts per year! With Product Planning and Program Management solutions from ENOVIA, clients can precisely orchestrate even the most complex of processes.
ENOVIA Product Planning and Program Management delivers "invisible governance" which provides the ability to identify potential issues and risks before they fully manifest. With invisible governance, you can obtain project updates with deliverable status.
In this new age of manufacturing, news about your soon-to-be-launched product reaches consumers across the globe almost instantaneously. However, if the new product is not immediately available in a given region, consumers in that region may quickly move on to other alternatives. Gone are the days when a company could first launch a product in a developed market, then launch the same product in emerging markets. A well-executed global launch is fast becoming a business imperative for achieving a higher return on investment.
Configuration Management enables you to establish conceptual product definitions which can be reused across a multiple series of products, satisfy market demands, and which can make many optional capabilities possible. These conceptual product definitions serve as a framework for defining variant products which are configurable and which drive the generation of engineering bills-of-materials (EBOMs).
Global Design Management
With Global Design Management, you can support the entire product development process by giving early visibility to design information. You can also facilitate collaboration across the entire enterprise before final product decisions are made.
Global Engineering Manufacturing and Product Support Management
This enables bill-of-material management across the product lifecycle—from as-designed to as-manufactured, as-planned, all the way to as-built and as-serviced stages.
Today, effective quality practices have involved formalizing a process after quality issues have been found or raised. These issues come from the field, or from the development and launch process itself. Some solutions focus on the various tools for quality issue prevention, such as Quality Functional Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), etc. These disciplines and processes have for years been touted as mechanisms for issue prevention and quality improvement.
Companies face challenges in many areas during the development and launch of complex products and services. Markets welcome good ideas, but opportunities may exist in many diverse locations worldwide, and they may involve variations in a product’s design, to serve some markets. As a result, intellectual property (IP) that captures this product complexity – including specifications, bills-of-materials, requirements, geometry, models, etc. – is being created. Finally, the processes used to define, model, and execute, will need to be managed, in order to launch products globally and simultaneously. All of this intellectual property is what gives a firm a competitive advantage in a global market. Therefore, the firm’s ability to leverage and protect IP without exception, is critical to its short- and long-term success.
In the “experience economy”, customers have been taking an increasingly active role in communicating their requirements and preferences for the products they plan to ultimately purchase. This has created both opportunities and demands, including the ability to manage customer requirements not as an afterthought, but as an inherent part of the product development process. The value of a requirements-driven systems engineering approach, developing products with customers' desired experiences at the forefront, is clear to all involved. This is what ENOVIA provides.
In this new era of manufacturing, suppliers are a critical component of the value chain. Successful companies have realized the importance of nurturing suppliers relationships beyond vendor-OEM associations, to collaborative partnering. ENOVIA for Supply Chain users allows companies to leverage supply chain capabilities throughout the product lifecycle, and to make suppliers an integral part of product development. Supply Chain Network capabilities allow companies to securely involve supply chain employees in the entire product lifecycle.
