CATIA PLM Express

Pre-Configured CATIA V5 bundled licences

Broad scope of Roles and Industries

CATIA PLM Express consists of Pre-Configured CATIA V5 bundled licences (44) for a number of job roles within a company. These roles can vary from Mechanical Engineering through to Surfacing, Sheet Metal, FE Analysis, Electrical, Composites, Reverse Engineering / Rapid Prototyping, NC Machining etc.

Pre-Configured CATIA V5 bundled licences

The “core” base requirement of CATIA V5 PLM Express is the CATIA Team PLM Configuration (CAT). This gives a user access to basic Part Design(PD1), Assemblies (AS1), WireFrame and Surface (WS1), Drafting(ID1+GDR) and Data Translation options of both STEP (ST1) & IGES(IG1).

The CAT Configuration also contains access to the Enovia SmarTeam Team Data Manager Configuration (TDM) which when configured with consultancy and the correct IT Infrastructure can give you the start of your own PLM System which could include as additional options Engineering Change Management, Workflow, BOM etc.

In addition to the “CAT” configuration, there are then additional “Enabler” and “Extension modules which can be added. An “Enabler” module ends with “E” and an “Extension” module ends with an “X“. As a Pre-Requisite, an “Enabler” would always need a “CAT” licence and an “Extension” would always need a “CAT” + “Enabler” as a Pre-Requisite.

Some typical examples for Job Roles are shown below – there are many more that could be configured so for more information please contact us either below or via email.
