Collaborative Innovation

Innovation increasingly means global teams collaborating with global information in a social context– and doing so with clarity, confidence and consistency.

Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, ENOVIA enables your innovators to benefit from the true rewards of collaboration. Easy to acquire, quick to learn and effortless to master, ENOVIA is reliable and robust enough to manage even the most sensitive and mission-critical data.


Global Product Development

Target ZERO Prototypes and ZERO BOM Errors

In the new age of manufacturing, news about your product launch reaches consumers across the globe instantaneously. However, if the product is not immediately available in a region, consumers move on to alternatives. Gone are the days when a product is first launched in the developed market and then subsequently launched in the developing world. A well-executed global launch is fast becoming a business imperative to achieving a higher return on investment.

Key Benefits
  • Simultaneous launch accelerates volume ramp-up from global markets, pulling in profits earlier
  • Margins increase as scale efficiencies are achieved earlier and price premiums are maximized

Configuration Management

Manage the conceptual and commercial aspects of products

Define conceptual product definitions that can be reused across a multiple products, satisfy market specifications and provide optional capabilities. These definitions serve as a framework for defining configurable variant products and drive the generation of engineering bills-of-material (EBOMs).

Key Benefits
  • Create product configurations to release as solutions into a product catalogue
  • Create product configurations to analyse designs in Dassault Systèmes’ design and engineering applications
  • Create product configurations to kick off the NPI process for new custom products

Global Design Management

From product data management to integrated design management

Support the entire product development process by giving early visibility to design information, and allowing the enterprise to collaborate before final product decisions are made.

Key Benefits
  • Provide real-time access to the right data at the right time
  • Provide access to other company stakeholders (product engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, etc.) to design data in real time throughout the entire product lifecycle
  • Operate across multiple CAD authoring tools

Global Engineering Manufacturing & Product Support Management

Seamless collaboration throughout the extended enterprises

Enable bill of material management across the product lifecycle—from as-designed to as-manufactured, as-planned, and all the way to as-built and as-serviced stages.

Key Benefits
  • Facilitate global part re-use and standardisation to assure optimisation across product management, design, manufacturing & procurement processes
  • Globally dispersed manufacturing organisations have access to bill of materials and other information related to product development activities and facilitates real-time collaboration among all engineering disciplines

Product Planning and Program Management

Target ZERO Product Delays

Imagine your company has multiple concurrent projects, numerous suppliers and your team is introducing thousands of new parts per year! With Product Planning and Program Management solutions from ENOVIA, you can now orchestrate the most complex of processes. ENOVIA delivers ‘invisible governance’ which enables risk mitigation and identifies issues before they fully manifest so that you can drive project updates with deliverable status.

Key Benefits
  • Determine the optimal mix of product capabilities to meet market demands and minimize engineering costs
  • Schedule and track all aspects of the product development process in real time as the work is completed
  • Plan and manage resource assignments based on real-time information on availability

Strategic Customer Relationships

Toward ZERO Product Failure

In the Experience Economy, customers take a more active role in communicating their requirements and preferences for the products that they purchase. This phenomenon requires the ability to manage customer requirements not as an afterthought, but as an inherent part of the product development process. The ENOVIA requirements-driven systems engineering approach to developing products with the customer’s desired experiences is visible to all stakeholders involved.

Key Benefits
  • Capture customer needs and drive downstream development by planning new products with the greatest market impact – enables you to co-create with your customers
  • Prioritize requirements based on value delivered
  • Model systems with interactions and analyze the impact on the experience

Strategic Supplier Relationships

Target ZERO Latency

In this new era of manufacturing, your suppliers are a critical component of the value chain. Successful companies have realized the importance of nurturing suppliers such that the relationships go beyond vendor-OEM associations to collaborative partnering. ENOVIA for Supply Chain users allows companies to leverage supply chain capabilities throughout the product lifecycle and make their suppliers an integral part of product development. Supply Chain Network capabilities allow companies to involve supply chain employees securely in the entire product lifecycle.

Key Benefits
  • Collaborative Sourcing implements a “design for supply” strategy with repeatable and standardized direct material sourcing processes that provide the latest design information to the supply chain and valuable supplier quotation input to engineering
  • Supplier Performance Monitoring enhances the supplier partnership by designing, implementing and tracking part qualification plans, supplier development plans, and scorecards

IP Classification and Protection

Secure Intellectual Property

Companies are facing complexity from many areas during the development and launch of products and services. Market opportunities exist for good ideas, but they may be in many locations and involve variations to serve those markets. Intellectual Property (IP) is being created that captures the product complexity (specifications, bills-of-materials, requirements, geometry, models). In addition, the processes used to define, model and execute need to be properly managed in order to launch the products globally and simultaneously. IP is what drives the firm’s competitive advantage. Therefore the firm’s ability to secure this IP is critical to the company’s success.

Key Benefits
  • Organise data in multiple ways that best suits EACH role or activity
  • Eliminate files based data exchange
  • Put day-to-day IP management in the hands of the users
  • Keep history of data access and downloads for critical IP
  • Track IP usage across various projects and customers
  • Leverage product information from other enterprise systems by federating their IP into the context of product development business processes
  • Classify IP and enforce security requirements to fulfil regulations like ITAR

Quality and Compliance

Target ZERO Rework

Today, effective quality practices have involved formalising a process after a quality issue has been found or raised. These issues come from the field, or from the development and launch process itself. Some solutions focus on the various tools for quality issue prevention, such as Quality Functional Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), etc. These disciplines and processes have been touted as the mechanism for issue prevention and quality improvement for years.

Key Benefits
  • Extend compliance data to a broader audience, allowing for more effective decisions and awareness
  • Integrate supplier declarations early into the product development
  • Design in material compliance and monitor in real-time
  • Establish end-to-end traceability during the development process that can be leveraged for impact analysis
