DTE provides licenses and ongoing support for new PLM solution

Desktop Engineering has supplied Hyde Group, a leading engineering service provider, with a CATIA PLM Express solution that will enable it to store CATIA V5 data within an ENOVIA V6 database. The solution acquired by Hyde also includes a CATIA Mechanical Design package which future proofs the company’s technological capabilities for when OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers migrate to the V6 platform. V6 comprises the key Dassault Systèmes software suite of CATIA, ENOVIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA and 3DVIA.

CATIA 3DExperience on the Cloud videoDave Waring, head of IT and Resource at Hyde Group, said: “It is inevitable that sooner or later our key customers will move to the V6 platform. As a company we like to be proactive and provide a competitive edge which is based on technological innovation. Therefore, making this investment now is a way of ensuring that we can hit the ground running for when V6 is a day-to-day working reality.”

The V6 platform is more intuitive than V5. Users can easily find and search information, communicate, collaborate, and experience products in 3D, online, in real-time, even when those products don’t physically exist. It makes it easier for professionals and non-professionals to directly interact with the 3D data in composite documents based on PLM data.

ENOVIA provides the foundation for understanding and accessing a company’s PLM IP wherever it is physically located. For CATIA users, the lifelike experience will be evident in the new focus on real-time, dynamic user interface techniques, which allow both experts and beginners to turn their innovative concepts into usable geometry. In essence, V6 offers far better collaboration and IP management and assembly design capabilities than V5.

Geoff Haines, managing director at DTE, said:

“We are in the process of educating our customers on the capabilities of Dassault’s V6 platform so they can anticipate the changes that are coming down the line. Due to our experience and ongoing projects, we are ideally positioned to help companies like Hyde manage their V5 to V6 migration.”
