The agreement between Emergent Systems and Dassault enables Emergent to distribute its 'Knowledge Connector' software, which bridges Emergent's E2ks and Dassault's Catia V5. The 'Knowledge Connector' allows Catia V5 modelled parts and assemblies to be automatically infused with the technical know-how managed by E2ks. For example, E2ks may manage a variety of engineering standards which define parametric design boundaries and relationships such as 'min' and 'max clearances', 'radii', 'equations', etc. These boundary conditions are automatically created by E2ks through the 'Knowledge Connector' as native Catia V5 Knowledgeware components (without intervention by the V5 engineer). This infusion of technical know-how serves to guide the design process and to promote compliance with engineering best practices. Further, the parametric boundary conditions can be tracked in real-time and status can be reported online through E2ks.
"Catia V5 now represents a significant and additional mode by which our enterprise solution for technical knowledge management, E2ks, can deploy technical know-how and engineering standards," said Jeff Moffa, Vice President Emergent Systems. "Systematically deploying engineering standards through a popular CAD system like Catia V5 from Dassault will provide unprecedented value to E2ks customers and represents a significant step forward toward our vision of 'Knowledge Aware' engineering processes."
The Enterprise Engineering Knowledge System (E2ks) is a structured, web-deployed, repository and hub for engineering standards and technical know-how. E2ks not only provides superior retention and refinement of technical 'know-how', but also its systematic application to all points of 'Product' and 'Mfg Process' design, yielding compelling advancements in engineering capability.
