ENOVIA SmarTeam is a Product Data Management (PDM) solution that enables organisations to manage and collaborate on product information. Data is accessible across multiple disciplines, both throughout an enterprise and across a supply chain.
ENOVIA SmarTeam is recognised as one of the leading Product Data Management solutions and offers the following benefits when managing business data and processes.
ENOVIA SmarTeam ensures that during update, files are locked to a specific user whilst other users are warned of the status at all times.
Authorisation to access information and perform operations on the information can be governed by the project or role, to which the information belongs, using the project based authorisations.
Through its robust enterprise product platform and additional supply chain collaboration tools, ENOVIA SmarTeam turns the extended enterprise into a virtual community, enabling a greater level of collaboration with dramatic bottom line benefits.
ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Collaboration enables dispersed design teams to work in collaboration in a single, or Multi-CAD environment, to innovate new products, and to reuse existing ones for faster-time-to market. In a Design Collaboration scenario the participating roles are the Designer, the Editor and the Community member, whereby the domain focus is the designer, and design collaboration can also take place among a group of local or remote designers only, without necessarily including community members.
ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Collaboration seamlessly combines cross-departmental engineering-based activities throughout the product lifecycle into a unified environment for effective data management and sharing among various organisational roles. Users in a typical Engineering Collaboration scenario include a product manager, configuration manager, configuration engineer, designer, SRM manager, and a subcontractor/supplier using the Briefcase.
ENOVIA SmarTeam Enterprise Collaboration provides a PLM solution throughout the extended enterprise, including the value chain. Combining the entire ENOVIA SmarTeam offering, or selected modules in a scalable manner, and according to specific enterprise needs, would provide a complete Enterprise Collaboration solution for mid-sized companies.
“Purchasing sent out the wrong version of the drawing to our supplier, resulting in scrap production parts and significant re-manufacturing costs.” A: SmarTeam gives an instant visual indication of the current production revision of a model or drawing.
“Various people have designed parts at different times and file names have been inconsistent – finding parts in the file system has been extremely difficult.” A: By controlling CAD data in SmarTeam there is just one location to find manufacturing documentation. SmarTeam has very powerful search capabilities allowing for rapid location of any data.
“We currently do not have an up-to-date assembly of the current product in CAD – should design updates be needed in a hurry, as is often the case, we will have issues locating the correct data for modification.” A: With SmarTeam you can rapidly locate the current design build standard and evaluate change effects.
“We found it very hard to maintain an accurate BOM, resulting in the production using the wrong level parts whilst also encountering shortages with the correct level parts – this has resulted in a 2 week project delay.” A: SmarTeam allows multiple views of the BOM, “As Specified”, “As Designed”, “As Built” as well as configurations of your products.
“We were forever loosing change request forms on people’s desks. Even printing them on bright red paper didn’t help” A: SmarTeam Workflow enables electronic forms and processes to be captured and managed centrally. Workflow will alert users via email that there is a need to access SmarTeam to carry out a function.
