The applications are built around recognized development best practices to promote concurrent engineering, multi-disciplinary design teams, change tracability knowledge capture, extended enterprise collaboration and the generalized use of digital data.
The solutions promote "right first time" design, improving quality and reducing development times. Managing and relating all product, process and resource (PPR) data, ENOVIA Product Lifecycle Applications encourage innovation and ensure collaboration between multiple engineering groups.
Pervasive use of graphical PPR representations throughout the development process ensures that product development participation can extend beyond the engineering teams to sales, service, procurement and other enterprise functions.
ENOVIA Product Lifecycle Applications include ENOVIAVPM and ENOVIAPM.
ENOVIAVPM serves as the engineering tool to define and organize the products, processes and resources involved with product development, and as such it has strong links with engineering CAD/CAM/CAE authoring tools.
ENOVIAPM manages the data through the enterprise processes. ENOVIA Portfolio 2 introduces new interoperability features that support the controlled exchange of items, parts and product structures both between ENOVIAVPM and ENOVIAPM, and with ERP applications.
