Design Management

Collaborate Effectively


ENOVIA Design Management manages and secures design data across geographically dispersed teams and throughout the extended value chain. ENOVIA powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, manages designs authored with CATIA® 3DEXPERIENCE®, CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS and third-party CAD tools.

ENOVIA enables true enterprise collaboration by providing stakeholders early visibility to product data and related design information before final product decisions are made. For manufacturers, ENOVIA supports both formal and ad hoc design reviews, accessible to all stakeholders, to help foster new ideas, identify issues and track actions to ensure closure.
