Dassault Systemes has announced the availability of Version 5 Release 21 (V5R21) PLM software. The company says V5R21 solutions establish “digital continuity” from engineering to real shop floor manufacturing operations to support customer needs, while leveraging Version 6 technologies for better co-existence of V5 and V6 solutions in customer environments.
In V5R21, Dassault Systemes delivers upward and downward compatibility between CATIA V5 and V6 data that is equivalent to the compatibility between two releases of V5. In addition, V5R21 supports collaborative relational design between CATIA V5 and Version 6.
“Even customers who have yet to fully experience our open Version 6 portfolio are gaining the benefits of Dassault Systemes’ Version 6 developments. Our evolution towards PLM 2 wasn’t just a visionary reimagining of what PLM could do for our customers,” says Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, Products, Research and Development, Dassault Systemes. “What we are seeing in V5R21 are the combined fruits of our Version 6 and Version 5 developments.”
V5R21 includes new composites analysis enhancements to SIMULIA Extended Analysis, new CATIA Lofting capabilities, improvements to ENOVIA SmarTeam Express’ out-of-the-box offering for the Industrial Equipment and Energy industries, improvements to ENOVIA’s concurrent engineering functionality, as well as many other capabilities, and the integration of Version 5-compliant Intercim MES capabilities.
The recent acquisition of Intercim and its MES and quality improvement solutions continues to expand Dassault Systemes’ manufacturing reach. V5R21’s new open Shop Order product enables DELMIA to be tightly integrated with either Dassault Systemes or third-party MES solutions, according to the company.
