Dassault Systèmes has launched V6R2010, the latest release of its software offerings, and introduced 42 new V6 products supporting business processes in all industries. Joining them is a new offer, V6 PLM Express, tailored for mid-market businesses and small teams within large organizations.

The PLM Express provides a single, open scalable platform in a pre-packaged, ready-to-use environment engineered for rapid deployment. It has online-enabled design-anywhere functionality, provides real-time seamless collaboration and supports multi-CAD interoperability and hybrid V4-V5 implementations.

PLM Express’ role-based selections of the full V6 portfolio and its out-of-the-box configurations make the solution easy to buy and implement, the company says, and because all V6 solutions share the same interface and data model, mid-market users can inherently collaborate and integrate with OEMs.

“PLM 2.0 is an enterprise-wide business transformation catalyst integrating both industrial business processes and dedicated applications. V6’s lifelike experience, IP collaboration, modeling, simulation and manufacturing solutions provide customers an agnostic and federating platform that truly accelerates PLM 2.0 transformations,” says Dominique Florack, senior executive vice-president of products, research and development.

Additionally, the introduction of CATIA Live Shape allows casual users to quickly create design concepts in a lifelike environment and easily modify existing designs, including those from other CAD solutions. SIMULIA V6 DesignSight Structure makes advanced non linear finite element analysis technology available to non-experts.” “

Global industrial equipment companies of all sizes face increasing product variability and disruptions in the value chain while delivering ever faster innovative products.” With V6 PLM Express, V6R2010 focuses on small and medium-sized companies with a sales configurator that entitles online component and sourcing management to lower the total cost of ownership.

For the packaged goods industry, V6R2010 introduces a new ENOVIA CPG Accelerator. The Integrated Product Management accelerator integrates components and formula raw materials for product definition, enabling global change management and dynamic approval to accommodate regulated industry requirements. In addition, V6R2010 SIMULIA is bringing a major step for support of simulation lifecycle management processes for the industry.

And for car makers, V6R2010 brings a breakthrough in the area of collaborative engineering and manufacturing for the automotive industry, OEMs and their suppliers. With a single PLM platform for IP management, V6 offers a seamless product to process integration without any engineering and manufacturing data duplication. DELMIA V6R2010 Robotics enables companies to develop multiple resource layouts for any given manufacturing process plan and provides key decision making tools to assess plant capacity, throughput, efficiency and associated costs. With online creation and collaboration, car makers can quickly exchange with partners and suppliers around the globe.
