Developing smart products has never been more challenging. Developers need an integrated systems-engineering approach that enables them to manage the whole process. Requirements-engineering, systems architecture definition, detailed modeling and simulation of complex systems, and the development of embedded software – they all need to be mastered in the context of the complete product.

The Systems Engineering solution from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unique, open, and extensible development platform – a platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification, and business process support needed for developing complex ‘cyber-physical’ products. It enables organizations to quickly and easily evaluate requests for changes or develop new products or system variants, while utilizing a unified, performance-based systems-engineering approach that reduces the overall cost of development.

  • Leverage a best-in-class model-based system development platform to accelerate the development and validation of complex designs.

  • Ensure compliance with market requirements and regulations while improving time-to-market and reducing costs through world-class requirements engineering.

  • Collaborate across all disciplines to define a complete systems architecture through multiple operational, functional, and component views.

  • Using Modelica-based modeling and simulation, verify the behavior of complex products and systems that span multiple engineering disciplines.

  • Integrate intelligent embedded systems and 3D product design processes into the simulation of complex mechatronics.

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA Systems Engineering Packages

Systems Schematic Engineer

CREATE DISCIPLINE-SPECIFIC INTELLIGENT SCHEMATICS FOR WIRING, CABLING, PIPING/TUBING AND HVAC SYSTEMS


This package provides a complete, integrated workflow that links systems architecture definitions through to detailed 3D electrical & fluid systems design. Schematic designers can capture functional and logical architecture and connectivity using discipline-specific extensions of the logical model, with an efficient user interface and automation of common tasks:

  • Enable RFLP (requirement, functional, logical, and physical) design in CATIA.
  • Route in CATIA Systems Logical 3D Architecture.
  • Capture electrical and fluid systems architecture & connectivity.
  • Design check and automation with knowledgeware.
  • Import/export electrical definition in ixfElec format and electrical systems in ELOG format.
  • Generate reports based on templates defined by Report Template Designers
  • Ensure end-to-end holistic traceability & collaboration on system models

Dynamic Systems Engineer

RAPIDLY MODEL AND SIMULATE COMPLEX ENGINEERING SYSTEMS USING MODELICA


CATIA Dynamic Systems Engineer offers a Modelica- and FMI-compliant solution to efficiently model and simulate multiphysics dynamic systems. With model-based systems engineering, system architectures can be quickly assessed based on behavior and performance simulation. Informed decisions can be made long before detailed design or physical prototyping:

  • Multi-discipline modeling & simulation, fully-compliant with the open Modelica language.
  • Enables the usage of company’s own or commercial domain-specific Modelica libraries for rapid modeling & simulation of complex multiphysics systems.
  • Integrated workgroup environment with shared digital representation for accurate model-based design.
  • Powerful integrated systems-simulation environment and systems-model management.
  • Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) import capability enables co-simulation of models coming from heterogeneous solutions.

Piping & HVAC 3D System Engineer

AN INTEGRATED 3D DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PHYSICAL DESIGN OF PIPING AND HVAC SYSTEMS


This package enables the design of complex piping and HVAC systems from concept to detail phases.  With tight 2D-to-3D integration, it avoids many of the limitations and constraints experienced with traditional tools:

  • Design and optimize the physical system of pipes and HVAC from basic routing to detailing.
  • Perform design integrity checks to ensure clean integration between 2D schematics and 3D designs.
  • Take advantage of specification- and schematic-driven design with automated part placement capabilities, ensuring ensure compliance with corporate and industry standards
  • Automate spool generation and piping assembly decomposition based on rules
  • Automate report generation based on company templates for all disciplines and purposes (fabrication, installation, supplier, etc.)
  • Automate drawing generation for fabrication and installation

Electrical 3D System Engineer

DESIGN 3D WIRE HARNESSES AND CABLING IN AN INTEGRATED DESIGN ENVIRONMENT


This package is a process-specific solution for designing physical wire harnesses. It is driven by logical specifications (schematics) and realistic simulation of the design and environment, and it is integrated with harness manufacturing preparation:

  • Create an extended range of electrical 3D components (equipment, mountings, connectors, shells, wires, cables, harness supports and protections, etc.) and define their electrical and mechanical behavior
  • Efficiently store, manage, and reuse all electrical objects in easy-to-use catalogs
  • Design and route 3D electrical networks in context (harnesses and cableways), with accurate finite element modeling to provide realistic harness shape and behavior characteristics.
  • Leverage analysis tools to check design connectivity and quality.
  • Wire/cable content import and routing into network.
  • New 3D design capability from 2D schematics.
  • Semantic Tolerancing Advisor guides compliance with standards like ISO, ANSI/ASME and JIS.
