This is the conclusion to our 6-part blog series based on our white paper, “The Top Five Reasons for Manufacturers to Improve Data Management.”

Realize Benefits of Improved Data Management with NETVIBES and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

As a leading provider of easy-to-use design, engineering, and product development solutions, Dassault Systèmes has introduced the industry’s first distributed data management product portfolio, which can match and often exceed the capabilities of expensive PLM (product lifecycle management) systems at a fraction of the cost. This unique set of solutions enables manufacturers to take advantage of PDM (product data management), advanced data management, and powerful searching applications, either individually or as a combined Distributed Data Management system.

Product Data Management – 3DEXPERIENCE and NETVIBES solutions for product data management are fully integrated with popular SOLIDWORKS design software, enabling manufacturers to safeguard, store, and organize product design data for maximum efficiency. These solutions also allow product development teams to collaborate more effectively.

  • Securely store and index design data for fast retrieval.
  • Eliminate concerns about version control and data loss.
  • Share and collaborate on designs with people inside and outside the organization in multiple locations.
  • Create an electronic workflow to formalize, manage, and optimize development, document approval, and engineering change processes.
  • Allow teams throughout the manufacturing enterprise to manage project timelines and resources, streamline complex business processes, automate records management, and aggregate, communicate, and present PDM-related information in formats tailored for consumption by varied audiences.

Dashboards and Reports – NETVIBES provides instant access to critical information in an easy-to-consume format for better decision-making.

  • Create interactive graphical dashboards to display critical information
  • Configure reports to company standards and publish automatically or on demand

Geometry and Metadata Search – NETVIBES OnePart helps designers and engineers decide between design creation or design reuse in just one minute. NETVIBES OnePart is a business discovery application that accelerates reuse of parts, designs, specifications, standards, test results. and related data for engineering, manufacturing, and procurement activities. Leveraging the proven web semantics, analytics, and big data management technologies of CloudView™, OnePart locates information from multiple sources and makes it available instantly.

Searching for Design Geometries – NETVIBES OnePart extends the text- and file-based search capabilities of SOLIDWORKS PDM solutions into the realm of the 3D shapes, geometries, and mechanical features of existing designs across the entire enterprise. Even without a CAD license, users can search on geometric shape, business function, and even mechanical features, such as holes, pads, and grooves. This application can find parts, drawings, and assemblies, as well as view critical information on parent-child relationships within assemblies, enabling users to navigate down through an assembly to locate a specific part. Part discovery through 3D shape similarity and 3D mechanical feature data mining will reveal existing parts that text- and file-based searches cannot find, facilitating design reuse.

Searching for Product Design Metadata – NETVIBES OnePart also can quickly locate any type of metadata associated with existing component designs. Metadata search capabilities enable users to discover analysis and testing results, materials and sourcing data, specifications and applicable standards, and price and performance information for any part that is developed anywhere across a manufacturing enterprise. The robustness of NETVIBES OnePart’s navigation and filtering capabilities will give anyone across the organization the ability to quickly find a suitable existing part, or information related to a particular part, in less than a minute.

Make Data Management a Competitive Strength with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and NETVIBES

Manufacturers can transform data management from a costly, time-eating weakness into a competitive strength with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and NETVIBES. By improving your organization’s ability to manage, secure, find, and leverage product data efficiently and effectively—not just in product development and production, but across the manufacturing enterprise—manufacturers can 1) increase productivity, 2) improve product quality, 3) facilitate collaboration, 4) enhance organizational agility and flexibility, and 5) inspire greater innovation.

Part 1: Reason #1 – Boost Productivity

Part 2: Reason #2 – Improve Product Quality

Part 3: Reason #3 – Facilitate Collaboration

Part 4: Reason #4 – Increase Agility & Flexibility

Part 5: Reason #5 – Inspire Innovation

Part 6: Make Data Management a Competitive Strength with NETVIBES on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
