Collaborative Industry Innovator

A scalable, online environment for managing product design, multi physics simulation and manufacturing process planning with maximum traceability and flexibility

Collaborative Industry Innovator Role Overview

Collaborative Industry Innovator provides apps and services that connect all users in the industry value chain together – to organize, manage and collaborate on content in real-time and in a secured manner. The role includes a single repository to store, share and manage content, search and find relevant data and information, navigate through a product data set, easily view and compare 3D content.

Industry Innovation extends and supports compliance to standard enterprise business processes (Change, Project, Quality, etc.) when relevant Roles are added, connecting the entire industry value chain.

Key Benefits

An essential set of apps for real-time, secure and structured collaboration on product content. Key benefits include:

  • Collaborative Industry Innovator role is based upon a common data model for design/engineering, manufacturing/production and simulation processes. Its online environment helps medium to large companies bring more innovative products to market faster.
  • When used for 3DEXPERIENCE® CATIA® and XCAD, Industry Innovation is the only technology in the market that supports “data-driven design.”
  • Simulation Foundation acts as a dashboard for all users to find, monitor or resume any of the simulations they’ve been recently working on.;

Collaborative Industry Innovator Benefits

Enables multi-CAD applications to contribute directly to a single product definition

  • Collaborate Effectively

    Securely access, share and manage documents and data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Enhance collaboration with a single source of information available anytime and accessible by team members located anywhere. Seamless integration with Microsoft Office enables everyone, including non-technical team members, to work in a familiar environment.

  • Enable Concurrent Design

    Manage the product structure as data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform so designers can work in parallel. Designers have instant access to updates made by other contributors working in their CAD or multi-disciplinary applications. This enables real-time concurrent design, resulting in enhanced decision-making and faster design maturity.

  • Decrease Errors

    Access lifecycle capabilities directly from within the CAD application. Lifecycle management helps ensure cross-functional teams are always working with the most-up-to-date version of the design and related data to reduce the likelihood of errors. Stakeholders receive notifications when designers promote their work to the next level of maturity.

  • Reduce Rework and Delays

    Easily classify and search for parts that meet requirements in standard or company part libraries. Quickly identify components for review or modification using cross highlighting between a tabular and graphical view. Accurate identification of components for updates to the product structure or design reduces rework and delays. Reuse existing parts to save time, lower costs and advance product quality.

  • Stay Organized

    Intuitively organize, view and track individual and shared tasks from creation through completion. Readily access task information including who is responsible, delivery date and relevant content. Maintain real-time visibility into task status in a dashboard to ensure projects advance according to defined milestones.

  • Share Content

    Create and manage collaborative spaces, add members with different right levels, and provide direct access to any stored content including CATIA®, SOLIDWORKS®, DELMIA®, SIMULIA®, ENOVIA® and multi-CAD content. Access to collaborative spaces is secure, as each user is granted access as a member of a collaborative space with a given role for a given organization.
