Dassault Systemes has introduced an easy-to-install product life-cycle management solution tailored for medium-size companies. This is a departure from Dassault’s history of catering primarily to top-tier manufacturing organizations.
The new product—called ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express—is described as an out-of-the-box, scalable, multi-CAD PLM engineering solution.
Dassault claims the solution deploys best practices for working with Engineering Bill of Materials (E-BOM) from concept to manufacturing phases of the product lifecycle, enabling mid-sized businesses to significantly accelerate new product launches.
"ENOVIA SmarTeam has provided a system for managing, communicating, and integrating technical and business change,” says Jim Stewart, engineering systems manager at Swagelok , a Solon, Ohio-based fluid system component manufacturer that has adopted the solution. “We have processed about 300 percent more changes with reduced effort. We also have reduced processing time on make-to-order products by 70 percent."
According to Dassault, ENOVIA SmarTeam Engineering Express has an item/BOM-centric approach and configurable workflow processes—supporting both mechanical and electronic CAD—that improve product definitions by controlling the product changes and adopting best practices. The offering also enables improved accuracy, data consistency, and configuration control, resulting in effective and fast reuse of existing data.
"With the addition of SmarTeam Engineering Express to our solution portfolio, we are providing a tremendous advantage for mid-market manufacturers who can achieve a substantially low total cost of ownership," says Alex Zeltcer, general manager, ENOVIA SmarTeam, Dassault Systemes. "This is possible, in part, as our products work in harmony with Microsoft technologies, including .NET so that customers do not need to invest in additional and costly hardware and software."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
