Thousands of companies in multiple industries worldwide have taken advantage of CATIA’s virtual design capabilities to ensure product success. CATIA design software delivers products and solutions for the companies of all sizes, from large enterprises and small and medium businesses.

CATIA Design

From electronics to automotive and consumer packaged goods, design plays a critical part in determining a product’s success in the market. How do you deliver aesthetically pleasing and functionally superior products? CATIA covers all product shape design needs from industrial design to Class A, providing the designer with the tools to produce any kind of complex shapes.

CATIA Engineering

Products continue to increase in complexity. Performance and  quality targets become more demanding. It has become vital to gain early insight into the quality and performance key factors of a product.  CATIA provides this, enabling rapid development of high-quality mechanical products.

Mechanical engineers equipped with 3D Modeling tools can gain insight into key factors of quality and performance early in the product development phase. Digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, allows product development teams to virtually create and analyze a mechanical product in its operating environment.

CATIA Systems Architecture

From aircraft’s to cars, industrial machinery, ships, and white goods, the complexity of the products and of the systems that keep them running is steadily increasing. How do you manage this complexity while delivering your products on time? CATIA enables you to model and compose complex products, while defining and executing their driving systems.

Appropriate system architecture are built and validated when delivering appealing products demands an open, extensible and versatile approach to give them the desired structure.

Dassault Systèmes offers a fully integrated architecture, modeling and simulation solution for systems and products.

CATIA Systems Architecture solution ensures traceability from initial requirements definition through to final product delivery and support. It enables systems architects, product engineers, designers and technical experts to define the architecture and interdependencies of complex products and systems. This accelerates the systems engineering process from initial specification definition through to development, validation and right- to-market product delivery.

CATIA Systems Engineering

CATIA Systems Engineering integrates complex product behavior into the product definition, enabling a lifelike experience which predicts the actual performance of products in the real world.

Our Systems Engineering solution allows you to use many different models to simulate the behavior of complex systems and products.  These models rarely interoperate with one another and don’t exist in an ‘aggregated’ environment that allows a ‘whole-system multi-physics simulation’ of the complete product.  The Dassault Systèmes solution set provides a fully integrated systems modeling environment that leverages behavioral simulation for systems as well as for mechanical product assemblies.

CATIA Product Experience

Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, CATIA Product Experience brings together the Design, Functional, Engineering and Architectural characteristics of a product definition, to enable integration at the level of the complete product. It provides a social experience, where people of all roles and skills, generalist and specialist, come together to view, collaborate and review the overall project.

CATIA Product Experience delivers value to address the real challenges of the industry.

– Connect online  to one single source of truth
– Design easily in the context of large products with configurations
– Real time concurrent engineering with integrity, security & traceability
– Immediate project insight for all with 3D dashboards
– Multi-disciplinary collaboration on products & systems

All participants in the product development process can work with agility in the context of the complete product, always confident that the data is correct and up to date. This saves time, ensures that company standards are respected and accelerates the decision making due to real time collaboration:  anywhere, anytime, anyhow. So natural is the system and the process flow enabled by CATIA Product Experience, that users will embrace the solution as a catalyst for innovation.
