CATIA Version 5 (V5) is a completely re-engineered,
next-generation, interoperable native NT CAD/CAM/CAE software solution.
UNIX based CATIA V4 has lead the way for over a decade, but V5 with
its revolutionary approach to 3D CAE, has the power and capabilities
to handle projects of any size and complexity - from the smallest
and most intricate piece of jewellery, to the might of a Boeing
V5's extensive capabilities include:
1. using the power of the internet to perform B2B activities
2.using concept sketches to create part in operation
3. rapid response to engineering changes
4. using knowledge based parts in the design process to capture
5. best practices whilst adhering to company standards
6. verifying part & assembly design integrity
7. using integrated stress analysis solutions
8. automatically perform design iterations while minimising critical
9. capturing and sharing company best practices
10. CATIA V5 has an interface that is incredibly easy-to-use,
11. maximising productivity, innovation and creativity.
CATIA V5 has three platforms, P1 Platform,
P2 Platform and P3 Platform, which
allows you to choose the level of functionality you require.
(CATIA P1 products are fully operational on a CATIA P2 platform)
