3D digital design of products based on their behavior in real conditions.

CATIA delivers the unique ability not only to model any product, but to do so in the context of its real-life behavior: design in the age of experience. Systems architects, engineers, designers, construction professionals and all contributors can define, imagine and shape the connected world.

CATIA offers not only unique capabilities for modeling any products, but also allows you to do this in the context of their behavior in real conditions.

CATIA, powered by Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, delivers:

  • A Social design environment built on a single source of truth and accessed through powerful 3D dashboards that drive business intelligence, real-time concurrent design and collaboration across all stakeholders including mobile workers.
  • An  Instinctive 3DEXPERIENCE, for both experienced and occasional users with world-class 3D modeling and simulation capabilities that optimize the effectiveness of every user.
  • An Inclusive product development platform that is easily integrated with existing processes & tools. This enables multiple disciplines to leverage powerful and integrated specialist applications across all phases of the product development process.

CATIA’s Design, Engineering, Systems Engineering and Construction applications are the heart of  Industry Solution Experiences from Dassault Systèmes to address specific industry needs. This revolutionizes the way organizations conceive, develop and realize new products, delivering competitive edge through innovative customer experiences.

Disciplines that use CATIA in their work

DIGITAL CONTINUITY FOR BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE. The design and engineering processes for construction requires close collaboration among multiple participants across all project phases. Additionally, increasingly complex construction projects require that all teams rely on 3D as a common language to facilitate collaboration and reduce rework between phases.

CATIA DESIGN/STYLING FOR PRODUCT EXCELLENCE. From product to transportation industries, the style & design of the product plays a major role in its success on the market. Develop shape & material creativity, reach a high level of surface sophistication & quality, and get the right decision tools with physical & virtual prototypes. These are the key elements of CATIA Design/Styling to boost design innovation.

CATIA ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE. As products and experiences continue to increase in complexity, performance and quality targets are becoming more demanding. CATIA answers that challenge, enabling the rapid development of high-quality mechanical products.

MASTERING THE CROSS-DISCIPLINE SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS. Developing smart products has never been more challenging.  Developers need an integrated systems engineering approach that enables them to manage the complete development process.  Requirements engineering, systems architecture definition, detailed modeling and simulation of complex systems and the development of embedded software all need to be mastered in the context of the complete product.

Major users of the system are: Boeing, Airbus, Renault, Merсedes-Benz, BMW, Chrysler, Volvo, Peugeot, Fiat, Ferrary, Volkswagen, Black&Decker, Motorola, GoodYear, Electrolux и многие другие. Currently, it is used by 14 of the 20 largest automotive companies.
