CATIA Engineer Excellence (CATEE) configuration contains the following modules:
+ FPE (Fabricated Product Creation)
+ JTE (Jig and Tooling Creation)
+ LOE (3D Layout and Annotations)
+ TRE (Technological Specifications Review)
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.
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.
3D Layout and Annotations (LOE)
Increasing product development complexity has made the realization of innovation impossible in 2D design alone. Most engineers find it convenient to bring forth ideas with 2D drafts, but the transition from 2D to 3D design is often chaotic and very time consuming. Companies need to transform their 2D blueprints into 3D as uncomplicated and as quickly as possible.
CATIA - 3D Layout and Annotations answers to customers looking for a smooth transition from 2D to 3D and fosters innovation with a unique 2D/3D approach for conceptual design. Moreover, it reduces reliance on 2D drawings by capturing all drawing information, 3D tolerance specifications and annotations inside the 3D model and increases the pervasive usage of 3D as the master representation inside and throughout the enterprise.
• Facilitates 3D modeling for designers familiar with 2D drafting
• Increases innovation with a unique 2D/3D approach for conceptual design
• Suppresses the need for attached drawing documents
• Easily reviews &prints drawing information directly from 3D
• Rapidly shares design specifications within and throughout the enterprise
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.
