Current practice in architectural and engineering design involves workflow methods that can have many stages and steps that challenge the efficacy and quality of the design and construction process. Unnecessary costs accrue through design collaboration delays and redesign or rework at any stage which challenges the business model of all participants.

Jaguar Land Rover i-PLM 2.0 - The Engineering Toolset
Jaguar Land Rover’s heritage comprises some of the world’s most iconic vehicles, including Jaguar Mark II, E-Type, and the Land Rover Defender.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) emerged within Tata Motors as an exciting, dynamic global enterprise after having passed through the corporate hands of Ford Motors. Due to JLR's varied ownership history, a complex mixture of automotive industry software was inherited from its previous owners, and this was not scaled or supportive of JLR’s aggressive business plan.
Over the past couple of months, we published a series of articles related to Modelling Methodology in CATIA V5.
The presented articles discuss the entire process for parts that are mainly prismatic in shape, with single body.
Multi-body and surface based modelling will be covered in future articles.
To recap, the topics and articles links are below:
In recent years many papers, both government whitepapers, research document and industry guru’s have voiced concern on the poor productivity within the construction industry.
Comparisons have been made with manufacturing industry where overall productivity has doubled over 20-30 years. So how did that industry achieve such gains and construction didn’t?
Dropbox is used very frequently amongst companies within the construction industry as a mechanism to share information. Its cheap, easy to use and available to synchronise files across many hardware platforms. It is easy to see why it has been taken up by many small, medium and even large organisations to help them manage BIM (Building Information Modeling) information on building projects.
In this short video you will see some of the powerful live collaboration tools of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform in a scenario where two designers (Justin and Alex) are working on different parts within the same product.
In this short video, see how CATIA Composer can import native CATIA V5 Composite parts, and preserve all of the Composite Design and Analysis data for use in creating rich 3D documentation.
A simple example of a CATIA V5 Composite part is used in the video, modelled using the 'Zone Approach' with one main laminate and four thicker, reinforcement laminates.
Learn how to open and select the CATPart from your file browser and see how it replicates in Composer, with all the geometry included. You will now have the ability to design and capture multiple scenes (or views) as well as create high quality key-frame based animations.
In this article, we will discuss additional rules to be considered when defining part files. This article closes the main set of modelling methodology for prismatic geometry driven parts, with single body.
This is the sixth article of a series concerning how to implement and use modelling methodology in CATIA V5.
How do you get recognition of your skills or you want to be involved in better work or been seen as making a difference - how do you show your difference?
It’s all about having something unique that gives value to your employer.
Or if when job seeking how do you differentiate yourself from the rest of the pack? I had a friend who said you should draw pretty flowers on your CV! – whether he ever did that I don’t know, but in the competitive world we live you have to have a difference. That’s what sells. In sales jargon it’s called a Unique Selling Point, and when going for a job or looking to improve your position, that’s what you need.
