Customers Benefit from Enhanced Collaboration and Openness, Realistic Simulation and Composites Design Featured
PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 16, 2010 — Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Paris: DSY), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today launched Release 20 of its collaborative V5 PLM portfolio, including CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, and DELMIA. Today’s launch of V5R20 includes enhancements to DS’ ENOVIA SmarTeam multi-CAD collaboration software, integration of SIMULIA’s nonlinear and thermal realistic simulation capabilities into the V5 platform, as well as unique composites design and simulation capabilities in the CATIA and SIMULIA brand portfolios. V5R20 also features various enhancements across the entire product portfolio, including digital manufacturing, furthering support for production deployments and overall usability.
V5’s openness is advanced in Release 20 with updated multi-CAD integrations and a new 3D viewer available directly within ENOVIA SmarTeam. In addition, V5R20 introduces a new product, CATIA Extended STEP Interface. It enhances large assembly archiving with nested assembly support and in V5R20’s Q2 2010 update will feature unique comprehensive support for composites design attributes and functional tolerancing & annotation data. Q2 2010’s update to the entire V5 portfolio will also include support for Windows 7.
“Comprehensive, robust, and proven – these are words I use to describe our DS PLM implementation,” said Dan Lyvers, vice president, Engineering, Viking Range Corporation . “The breadth of the DS PLM portfolio ensures that we can consistently deliver on all of our major programs. And the tight integration of the individual solutions, including ENOVIA SmarTeam and CATIA, ensures collaboration between our enterprise and multi-discipline engineering users, enabling everyone to innovate together.”
“My guiding philosophy is that Dassault Systèmes never rests. Our commitment is to deliver not only the grand innovations that enable tomorrow’s industrial processes, but also constant, unwavering improvements to our customers’ deployments,” said Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, Research & Development, Dassault Systèmes. “It is the innovations in the details, that frequently make the difference for our customers.”
Thanks to realistic simulation technology from SIMULIA, V5R20 now enables customers to include nonlinear and thermal physics behavior in their design while maintaining full integration with PLM data and processes.
“We are focused on designing reliable fire detection and extinguishing equipment that experiences extreme pressure during operation. It is critical that we simulate the physical performance of our products both accurately and efficiently,” stated Jean-Marie Bocquart, technical director, L'Hotellier, a Hamilton Sundstrand company. “Due to stringent performance and development time requirements, we selected SIMULIA V5 Extended Analysis to improve the analysis of our products’ nonlinear behavior during the design phase directly in CATIA V5.”
