Dassault Systèmes (DS) launched V6R2010, the latest release of its new platform.
The announcement introduces 42 new V6 products supporting business processes in all industries and a new offer, V6 PLM Express, tailored specifically for mid-market businesses and small teams within large organizations. V6R2010 also includes groundbreaking direct modeling capabilities and realistic simulation solutions for non-experts.
V6R2010 opens up key PLM 2.0 values to the mid-market, including real-time seamless collaboration, online-enabled design-anywhere functionality, and a single, open scalable platform, in a pre-packaged, ready-to-use environment engineered for rapid deployment. PLM Express’ role-based selections of the full V6 portfolio and its out-of-the-box configurations make the solution easy to buy and implement. Because all V6 solutions share the same interface and data model, mid-market users can inherently collaborate and integrate with OEMs. Support for multi-CAD interoperability and hybrid V4-V5 implementations, will be enhanced thanks to V6’s open architecture.
“PLM 2.0 is an enterprise-wide business transformation catalyst integrating both industrial business processes and dedicated applications. V6’s lifelike experience, IP collaboration, modeling, simulation and manufacturing solutions provide customers an agnostic and federating platform that truly accelerates PLM 2.0 transformations,” says Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, Products, Research and Development, Dassault Systèmes. “V6R2010 delivers the promise of our virtual universes through our unified open architecture and our deep understanding of collaborative and social innovation needs.”
A key differentiator of V6 is to deliver the power of PLM to communities of expert and casual users. CATIA Live Shape introduces a revolutionary direct 3D modeling paradigm. It allows casual users to quickly create design concepts in a lifelike environment and easily modify existing designs, including those from other CAD solutions. SIMULIA V6 DesignSight Structure makes advanced non linear finite element analysis technology available to non-experts.
V6R2010 ready to use business process capabilities enable high-tech OEMs and EMS companies to drive an efficient sourcing strategy and ensure product and component compliance, while enabling “Design Anywhere, Manufacture Anywhere” agility and savings. The 3D equipment catalogs, tubing and piping are the first set of dedicated advanced authoring applications that benefit from the V6 collaborative platform. It also manages transverse processes, optimizing equipment installation simulation, maintenance and revamp operations and real-time project management, with solutions such as “3DVIA Composer Player Pro” and “ENOVIA Report Generator”. The new release enables the management of the increasing complexity of medical devices coupled with growing quality requirements. CATIA Systems links medical devices test scenarios, test results and product versions, all information being managed in the ENOVIA V6 collaboration platform. In addition, the new Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction entitles product management from concept to recycling and ensures compliance with industry regulations at each stage of product development.
V6R2010 introduces a new ENOVIA CPG Accelerator. The Integrated Product Management accelerator integrates components and formula raw materials for comprehensive product definition, enabling global change management and dynamic approval to accommodate regulated industry requirements. In addition, V6R2010 SIMULIA is bringing a major step for support of simulation lifecycle management (SLM) processes for the CPG industry.
The release brings a major breakthrough in the area of Collaborative Engineering and Manufacturing for the Automotive Industry, OEM’s and their suppliers. With a single PLM platform for IP management, V6 offers a seamless product to process integration without any engineering and manufacturing data duplication. This leads to reduction of end to end business processes such as Body-in-White. V6 ensures traceability along the product lifecycle from requirement to functional breakdown structure, logical architecture, physical engineering and manufacturing engineering. DELMIA V6R2010 Robotics enables companies to develop multiple resource layouts for any given manufacturing process plan and provides key decision making tools to assess plant capacity, throughput, efficiency and associated costs. With online creation and collaboration, car makers can quickly exchange with partners and suppliers around the globe.
V6R2010 delivers risk management at the program level, provides real-time views on program status and manages IP protection. These are major assets to an industry, in which the globalization of the aerospace supply chain has created a need for greater visibility, collaboration and enhanced control on overall program activities and deliverables from concept to end of life.
