10 Reasons 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA Gives Mechanical Engineers an Advantage

Engineering is Critical to Business Success

Today, there is more global competition than ever. New technologies are allowing many small businesses to compete with the biggest players, leveraging design tools that used to be available only to a select few. With more global options than ever, it’s essential to have the right design and engineering technology to maintain a competitive edge.

The key to bringing competitive products to market lies in engineering. A McKinsey study found that companies that excel at design grow their revenue and shareholder returns at nearly twice the rate of their industry peers.1

That’s why it’s critical to empower engineers with the tools that will let them achieve design excellence.

In our “10 Reasons 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA Gives Mechanical Engineers an Advantage” eBook, take a look into the features of 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA that empower your engineering in these 10 areas:

  • Model Anything
  • Learn It Easily
  • Reuse Geometry
  • Work on Large Assemblies with Ease
  • Optimize and Test with Simulation
  • Assess Motion
  • Design for Manufacturability
  • Adopt Model Based Definition (MBD)
  • Manage Product Data and Adapt to Differing Needs
  • Collaborate by Connecting People, Processes, and Data

What it Takes for Mechanical Engineers to Succeed

When the most successful companies, which they called Top Performers, are compared to Others, Top Performers are more likely to cite multiple reasons why customers buy their products. This means engineers need to simultaneously focus on numerous criteria to be successful while still having the time and flexibility to innovate.

Innovation is particularly critical to success as it is the biggest differentiator between Top Performers and Others. To innovate, engineers must be able to iterate their design as much as possible early on to explore many ideas and arrive at the best design.

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA gives mechanical engineers the edge when it comes to creating high-quality, innovative products. Below are some instances where 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA can be leveraged:

Top Performers are more likely to cite
multiple reasons why customers buy their products.

Fig.2 Closing windows of opportunity

As design reaches completion,
any changes have a much greater impact.

Fig.3 Business impacts of outdated information

Engineers spend 29% of their time working
with outdated data, having negative business impact.

Fig.4 Impact of poor collaboration on the business

Poor collaboration errors snowball and
hurt the business, so profitability takes a hit.

Engineering is the Key
