When it comes to modelling a product using multiple parts, CATIA becomes tedious. One need someone to sit with and learn with the experience from a frequent user. If switching from any other software to CATIA, it can be intimidating as learning curve is lengthy. For example, when working with complex shape in a knuckle joint, more steps are needed in part modelling. This cause part modelling lengthier and consume time more time, in comparison to SOLIDWORKS. However, CATIA is tremendously helpful in generating really complex features. Surface modelling is way easier when one know how to use it. It becomes really handy to make changes to the design later as well. The design history tree is also very well organized, which save time in later modifications

Teamcenter is growing very well in active workspace as a web-based client, but again, when I'm coming from the manufacturing point of view or a Build of Processes point of view, the software easy plan still needs to improve in a way. Of course, I think they're improving it also in a good way, but it's still not yet matured so from today onwards I can simply ask my users from product resistant to using the plan and push it further. I think there we have to improve more.

  • It is an easy-to-use tool and integrates many capabilities to manage CAD better than any other tool.
  • It is used by many companies with a great global presence and that has generated confidence for us when we decided to try it, the results have been satisfactory.
  • The user interface of this tool is not complex, it is easy to navigate and integrates a lot of functionalities that speed up our work significantly; as well as functionalities such as sectioning, displacing, moving, positioning, transforming, among others that have a lot to do with CAD management.
  • It works via the web through the browser, so it is not necessary to download any application that takes up space and more resources on the computer.

Because of our current customer needs, we will most likely maintain use of Siemens PLM products for some time. Aside from the initial software cost, we pay for yearly maintenance. Maintaining our yearly maintenance licensing with Siemens, we receive access to all of the latest software releases, as well as premier technical support

As previously mentioned, due to the intense amount of features and modules present in the software, the usability of the software suffers greatly. Many of the features are not used in our context, and many of the modules are not purchased, but the options are still present on the interface leading to a lot of clutter, much of which is never used. The interfaces suffer from a lack of design and tend to feel like a conglomerate of Windows 98 elements.

We got frequent updates on CATIA. There are lots of update notes. Also, there are lots of lots of videos online to solve the issues that you can stumble upon. It also has a built-in help manual, which helps occasionally. I have gotten my education through a physical class on CATIA, so there are opportunities like that as well.

You can create solid or 3D figures more easily and efficiently using Catia than in other programs or in specific AutoCAD. You can also create different pieces to later assemble them and thus create figures even more complex or in greater detail. In the same way, you can make 2D drawings without much complication.

Teamcenter is a more robust and faster application, with better search capability and easier customization. There is a reason you find companies using CATIA as their CAD software with Teamcenter as their PLM application! I don't know anyone who can name a company using NX with Enovia as their PLM!

Very intuitive and great GUI, easy to learn and use. Fast Implementation and multi-user usage that saves time. Completes all the tedious documentation and CAD. Increase the productivity of the team and allow time to brainstorm ideas. Workflow management allows correct process flows. The dashboard gives great insights into my flows and flows I'm part of and their status.

With no install required, it is a visual UI to navigate through products and processes, with tooltips to guide users along the way.Screenshot of BOM configuration, in Teamcenter. With flexibility in how a BOM is managed and defined, it can provide an up-to-date source of information that eliminates the need for standalone spreadsheets and systems. Teamcenter X provides a flexible BOM management strategy that enables a single, accurate product definition for all who interact with the BOM.Screenshot of Teamcenter X search and analytics capabilities provides a streamlined product lifecycle management (PLM) search experience to help quickly find data. Teamcenter X visually presents search results in logical groups so users can drill down through product structures and relationships.Screenshot of Product design intent can be communicated, and product data visualized, in their entirety using 2D and 3D visualization and markup capabilities. The user can also visualize and interrogate Product Manufacturing Information (PMI).Screenshot of documents are managed in conjunction with product development, with integrated PDF for viewing and markup.
