ENOVIAV6 Product Lifecycle Management Solution
As the pace of change accelerates, companies rely more on intellectual assets to maintain competitive advantage. From product developers, to the entire enterprise ecosystem, to consumers, everyone has the potential to play an important role in bringing marketable products to market at the right time.
As the most dynamic and flexible product lifecycle management link, the flexibility, open standards, scalability and industry-specific related features provided by the ENOVIA collaboration platform enable today's global companies to successfully target multiple domains. The combination of engineering and other key personnel eliminates barriers between organizations in different geographies, value chains, diverse systems, and ever-increasing security requirements.
ENOVIA V6 is grouped by functional area according to the relevant application. All products spanning these domains are built using the same technology and can be used as part of an ENOVIA system or separately. The functional areas of ENVOIAV6 include management, global sourcing, IP lifecycle management and unified on-site collaboration.
