Product Data Management (PDM) Application

Collaborative offerings

Focused on product development processes supporting design, engineering and enterprise activities. A unified platform across all SmarTeam products enables collaboration between users across these different areas … ENOVIA SmarTeam provides collaborative offerings.

Design Collaboration

ENOVIA SmarTeam Design Collaboration enables dispersed design teams to work in collaboration in a single, or Multi-CAD environment, to innovate new products, and to reuse existing ones for faster-time-to market.

Engineering Collaboration

SmarTeam Engineering Collaboration seamlessly combines cross-departmental engineering-based activities throughout the product life-cycle into a unified environment for effective data management and sharing among various organisational roles.

Enterprise Collaboration

SmarTeam Enterprise Collaboration offering provides a PLM solution throughout and across the extended enterprise, and including the value chain.


Small to mid-sized manufacturers and existing SmarTeam customers with a need for product lifecycle management (PLM), multi-discipline or multi-site collaboration, sustainable innovation, business applications leveraging PLM data, enterprise-wide quality management, integrated project management, requirements management or advanced change and configuration management should consider ENOVIA, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE®  platform.

Transitioning to 3DEXPERIENCE ENOVIA does not require changing existing CAD application(s) and brings additional capabilities to existing SmarTeam users to address growing business, product and process complexity.


How to use sensors in MSC Adams

Using Sensors to Latch a Mechanism

Sometimes with a mechanism simulation you need to trigger a change in the mechanism when an event such as a latch engaging to stop a component from moving any further. You can model the geometry and use a contact model to capture the physical engagement of the geometry, but this can add to your simulation run time and require a lot of tuning to get working happily.

An alternative is to control the behaviour of the latched component directly using motions that are triggered by the use of Sensors – detecting when the event occurs using a measure and then altering the connectivity of the model to reflect the new configuration with the latch engaged. 

This simple example illustrates how the user sets up this type of simulation ….
