Work methodologies in CATIA


A methodology is generally an operating procedure (method). The aim of a CATIA work methodology is to unify working practices and to gradually increase the knowledge of design teams in the implementation of these procedures in practice.

Methodology processes in CAD are worth introducing in your company when:

  • Requirements for the quality of CAD models, the volume of data and the precise definition of information necessary for production, including tolerances, are constantly rising.
  • You need to deal with a lack of design capacities (eliminate missing design capacities) and the pressure to shorten the time needed to develop a new product.
  • Both the quality and the price of products is important to your customers, as well as providing a quick response to required changes.
  • You want to use CATIA software up to its maximal potential.

Benefits of introducing a methodology to the company

  • Time savings during evolutionary modifications and design changes (depending on scope up to 30%)
  • Greater credit with customers when demonstrating the existence of the methodology and design rules
  • Increased competitiveness during bidding processes
  • Comparison of designers’ knowledge and better substitutability
  • Development of design department and the efficient incorporation of new workers
  • Existence of a valid methodological manual to which you can refer
  • Better quality models, the possibility of their automated control

What is involved in introducing a methodology?

The basis is a very thorough and consistent SWOT analysis in your company, conducted by an experienced specialist in CATIA and design processes. The formation of the methodological procedures that follow is usually the shared work of the customer and the supplier. All procedures proposed by us are consulted during the development of methodological procedures. The last step is to create the final documentation of the methodology, which contains the necessary procedures of how to correctly create, read, share or quickly change a CAD model in CATIA. All designers then undergo a training on methodological procedures and rules.

Do you want to optimize and standardize the work of your designers in CATIA? Ask for the CAD environment analysis and employment of methodological procedures in CATIA.

Our customers' opinions

Marcel Murar

Johnson Controls Development and Research Center Manager

“We required the new system to easily combine all data in one place. We also needed it to allow the specific set-up of internal processes such as ISS, LTB, etc. Considering the design, it was crucial for us to bring the new system closer to the original processes. All these requirements have been met by ENOVIA.”

Marek Ctrnacty

CATIA V5 Team, VOLKE Mladá Boleslav spol. s r.o.

“Years ago, we were looking for a way to extend CATIA V5 features and automate recurring engineer activities. We opted for automation using macros and we selected DYTRON as a supplier. This choice has proven to be a great solution. We especially value more than a decade of successful history, a highly cooperative partner and programmer. There’s nothing better than a high quality and lasting partnership.”

“Because ENOVIA has enabled us to manage data, or more precisely, all information through any number of links, this has meant that we always have the right information on hand, and thanks to the possibility of web access, we’re able to access this information anywhere at any time.

In our extreme job production (1,600 orders a year), ENOVIA has driven us forward in our important continuous improvement process by enabling us to collect feedback efficiently at many levels of the project implementation process, and to evaluate this information as an essential resource for improving quality and thus efficiency in future.”

Radek Kreml

Varroc Lighting Systems, s. r. o.

“Collaboration with DYTRON s.r.o. on developing CAD methodology has helped us to map and better understand the design procedures in the creation of the CAD model, and subsequently to optimize and standardize them.

The knowledge and deployment of the DYTRON expert and his structured, methodical approach were very beneficial. We are currently implementing the CAD methodology with the support of DYTRON, and we see its potential and a real contribution to making design work more efficient.”

Radek Valasek

Development Group Leader, BRANO a.s.

“The main benefit regarding construction was that we now have 100% order in the data. Previously, some designers stored data on their local drive, then another designer came in, needed to work on the data and took an older version. This stopped when we switched to ENOVIA. We have all the data in PLM, so the designer is always working with the latest data version or can see that someone else is working on it.

From a project management perspective, the greatest benefit is complete data management. Documents can be versioned, and we can see their history – who changed them, how and when. We have task management, so I can see if the task is "stuck" with someone or it’s going the way it’s supposed to. Thanks to ENOVIA we save 15-20% of time on a project, which is noticeable.”
