CATIA Mechanical Engineer Excellence

CATIA Mechanical Engineer Excellence (CATMEE) configuration contains the following modules:

+ FPE (Fabricated Product Creation)
+ MCE (Mechanical Product Creation)
+ JTE (Jig and Tooling Creation)
+ TRE (Technological Specifications Review)
+ FTX (3D Master)

Fabricated Product Creation (FPE)

Finding ways to reduce design-to-manufacturing cycles is a key priority for industrial companies. Companies need to rapidly design standard compliant sheet metal parts in 3D that are complex in addition to being ready-to-manufacture. CATIA - Fabricated Product Creation option is dedicated to the rapid design of sheet metal parts. Designers benefit from the already capitalized know-how and can take into account manufacturing constraints early in the design. In this way, they can create sheet metal parts that are fully compliant with company rules and standards for efficient manufacturing.

Customer benefits:

  • Fast and efficient design of sheet metal complex parts
  • Easily apply company-defined standards to ensure design quality
  • Create right first-time sheet metal parts thanks to design in context of the virtual product
  • Take into account manufacturability constraints early in the design phase and speed up assembly design

Mechanical Product Creation (MCE)

Finding ways to reduce design-to-manufacturing cycles is a key priority for industrial companies. An accurate virtual definition of mechanical products is the answer but sometimes its construction is time-consuming and design changes are complicated. Companies require a solution that is highly productive and flexible, without compromising design accuracy.

CATIA - Mechanical Product Creation provides the most complete and robust solution, tailored for any company that wants to make the difference by developing rapidly high-quality mechanical products with the highest productivity in design changes.

Customer benefits:
  • High-quality design for all mechanical parts, resulting from strong partnerships with industry leaders from all industries
  • Reduce time to design by enabling true concurrent engineering on complex parts
  • Fast design changes by automatically adapting parts and products to new contexts
  • Functional modeling: focus on what you want to model and not how to model it

Jig and Tooling Creation (JTE)

The modern manufacturing requires companies to reduce product development time and capitalize their know-how so that they can respond quickly to customer needs. In order to make it happen, they must expand their ability to innovate by automating redundant tasks and focusing on innovative projects.

CATIA - Jig and Tooling creation simply and quickly create all the elements of tooling including structures (linear or curved), plates, using standard or user-defined sections, generic, and user tooling components. Benefiting from a rich variety of standard and user-defined components with embedded drilling and manufacturing information, the engineer is able to design faster than ever and to focus on added value tasks. Fully integrated into the CATIA environment, the designer is able, for instance, to seamlessly perform extensive stress analysis on his structure elements and beams, create drafting or generate all information needed for NC programming.

Customer benefits:
  • Offer productive ways to generate structure assemblies
  • Generic option enabling creation of all kinds of tooling regardless of industry
  • Easy creation of reusable intelligent mechanical template with embedded drilling and manufacturing information
  • Easy know how capture and reuse

Technological Specifications Review (TRE)

Global demand and breakthrough technologies are increasing the complexity of product designs and the supply chains needed to build them. These distributed organizations need a way for stakeholders to view, understand and evaluate a virtual product definition.

CATIA - Technological Specification Review enables to place 3D product definition at the heart of people interactions and communications. It gives access to critical product information including functional annotations and tolerancing, fasteners types and positions and finite element analysis results. It also provides companies with a way to filter sensitive information before sharing 3D designs with partners.

Customer benefits: 
  • Direct access to accurate dimension and tolerance information
  • Direct access and review of Finite Elements Analysis (FEA) results
  • Assess parts under real conditions inside the virtual product
  • V5 Fasteners validation and fasteners documentation generation
  • IP protection and size reduction for supply chain exchange

3D Master (FTX)

Companies using 2D drawings to capture tolerance and annotation must maintain synchronicity between 2D drawings and 3D modifications in order to share consistent and up-to-date manufacturing information. This process is time-consuming and error prone and does not permit further usage of 3D tolerance analysis or metrology.

CATIA - 3D Master provides 3D definition and management of standard-compliant tolerance specifications and annotations for parts and products. It transforms 3D as the master representation, directly re-usable for manufacturing planners and shared throughout the enterprise.

Customer benefits:
  • Suppresses the need for attached drawing documents
  • Easily reviews and prints drawing information directly from 3D
  • Respects international standards for part and product definition
  • Shrinks time for part definition with already captured tolerance specifications and annotation in design templates
  • Rapidly shares design specifications within and throughout the enterprise

Animated Product Review (PRX)

Manufacturers must overcome unique technical and strategic challenges to keep pace in today's virtual global marketplace. As global demand and breakthrough technologies increase the complexity of product designs, engineers need more advanced desktop tools to quickly validate and release designs into production.

CATIA - Animated Product Review provides a comprehensive set of tools to simulate complex product behavior in one unified environment. This enables more decisions in the virtual stage of development - before investing in expensive prototypes, production resources, and product launch activities.

Customer benefits:
  • Reduce drastically the need for physical prototypes
  • In-context simulation of large and complex assembly structures
  • Seamless design, simulation, and analysis of product mechanisms
  • Early assessment of serviceability requirements
