Technical Solutions


CDG has a global team of engineers with extensive training and experience in the CATIA, ENOVIA and DELMIA applications. These engineering applications were developed by Dassault Systemes and are marketed worldwide by IBM.

CATIA (Computer-Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) is a computer-aided design/engineering software system that enables engineers to digitally design and manipulate a product, its components, and their relationships in three dimensions.

ENOVIA is an object-oriented database management software application that manages product definition data, processes, configuration management, and resources generated throughout the life-cycle of a product. ENOVIA is tightly linked with the CATIA application, and together they offer a single, integrated environment for the entire product life-cycle.

DELMIA (Digital Enterprise Lean Manufacturing Interactive Application) is a tool that is used for computer-aided process planning and engineering solutions. It enables companies to achieve lean manufacturing from the planning/conceptual stage of a project. DELMIA can be used for simulation and monitoring of manufacturing processes and shop floor operations such as capacity planning, implementation, monitoring and sign off.

CATIA, ENOVIA and Boeing

Boeing has used the CATIA applications since 1986 and is one of the largest users of this system in the world. The ability of CATIA to support a broad set of Boeing requirements in an integrated fashion led to its selection as a company-wide standard.

The use of the ENOVIA and CATIA platforms on the 787 program demonstrates the benefits Boeing expects to realize from applying these applications as company-wide standards. CATIA and ENOVIA allow design, analysis, manufacturing and maintenance engineers to work within a consistent digital mock-up environment. They ensure a standard approach to specifications, engineering rules, operational parameters and simulation results – all of which support affordable development processes for the 787 program. In addition, ENOVIA provides the electronic database needed to developed advanced support concepts that will enable reduction of life-cycle costs for the 787 program.

How can CDG help?

Do you have a requirement to integrate your engineering data into ENOVIA to support Boeing’s 787 program? Do you have projects with other manufacturers or customers with ENOVIA, CATIA or DELMIA requirements?

Do you have the time and resources necessary to fully train your staff to deliver the work on time?

CDG can offer the support of its extended team of fully trained engineers with a high level of experience in CATIA, ENOVIA and DELMIA applications. Our engineers will help ensure you deliver the correct information to Boeing and other partners, in the right format, on time, and without incurring the additional costs and risks involved in purchasing additional software licenses and training your staff to complete this work in-house.

CDG can provide you with a full data integration service from your source data, engineering models and/or drawings into CATIA and ENOVIA. CDG can also provide full CATIA and ENOVIA support throughout the life-cycle of the product.
