Product Synthesis

Managing costs and time
? From the geometrical models and parts split by disciplines to a single technological model gathering all product informations (disciplines specific rules, constraints, validations, …) ? Configurations of parts and components ? Automation or assistance to drive modifications and repeated tasks ? Automatic iterations to reach a defined objective

Knowledgeware

Managing quality
? Standardisation of design modes with the help of generic models ? Re-use of best practices ? The user is guided or assisted in his decisions ? Integration of checks and immediate validation ? Tools to automate the compliance with standards

Reacting to changing market needs
? Integration of specifications and constraints early in the design process ? Easy creation of product families ? Fast iterations on design variants ? Dynamic estimates (costs, weight, …) ? Decision support

Capitalizing and sharing know-how
? Discipline specific geometrical and technological know-hows are embedded in the applications ? Functions and components libraries ? Integration of company technological rules and parameters ? Capitalisation with components and tasks ? Dynamic access, accessible and shareable to all ? Fast and easy reuse of know-how in new contexts

Integrating design and analysis
A complete validation chain
? Bridging design and analysis activities ? Integrated and associative analysis ? A functional coverage adapted to disciplines ? Modal and static part dimensioning ? Surface and Volume meshing ? Performing analysis on part assemblies

Assisted tooling design
A high value dedicated application
? Automated design of fixtures ? Standard components libraries (columns, ejectors, screws…) ? Integration of discipline specific constraints (rules) ? Complete associativity between tooling and part ? A solution integrated to the design process

Fabrication
Integrated to the modeler
? 2.5 axis milling et associative drilling cycles (Prismatic machining) ? 3 axis et 5 axis milling ? Tight interaction between definition, generation and verification of tool paths ? Wysiwig material removal simulation ? Product Process Ressources model ? Tool libraries ? Complete coverage of the methods processes
