3DEXPERIENCE WORKS includes ENOVIAworks which is a portfolio of cloud-based SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Apps that work seamlessly together and with SOLIDWORKS to provide data and product lifecycle management and collaboration capabilities.

Using ENOVIAworks for product design collaboration enables users to:

  • Securely access data from anywhere
  • Manage product designs and documents without leaving the desktop authoring application
  • Maintain revision control
  • Perform lifecycle operations
  • Navigate product structures
  • Manage projects
  • Automatically optimize activities and resources to meet key milestones and delivery dates.

The ENOVIAworks collaboration tools empower teams to instantly share data, collect feedback, iterate on designs and make informed decisions faster. There is no need for data translation, migration or additional infrastructure.

Unlike existing PDM/PLM systems, SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE PLM solutions unlock design data for direct use in applications across disciplines resulting in higher user productivity and greater business agility.

Watch the following on-demand webinar below to learn how SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Solutions will accelerate your product design:

SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE PLM benefits for your business

Using the SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud-based PLM Apps will accelerate your business to leverage a cloud based data and lifecycle management solution. Some of the key benefits for a business include:

Improved productivity

Effective task management enables you to maximize efficiency and ensure that your projects complete on time. ENOVIAworks provides a simple yet powerful app that facilitates your organization of tasks. Easily create personal to-do-lists and team tasks. Assigning and notifying users is automated.

Management of your projects

In this time of uncertainty and remote working mandates, imagine having immediate access to project teams, tasks, changes, communications, design reviews, and more, regardless of where your team members are physically located. Connect SOLIDWORKS data with specific tasks and assigned team members via a familiar, browser-based interface. Now, everyone can see how his or her tasks affect other deliverables.

Collaborate more effectively

Improve your team’s ability to collaborate by leveraging Communities on the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS platform. Share ideas, organize their evolution, ask questions and share answers to quickly build a knowledge base that is available to everyone on your team. Helping to foster innovation that results in better products and higher sales

Reduced complexity

improve business agility by making the 3DEXPERIENCE platform your one stop shop for managing CAD and non-CAD data. Learn how you can release, revise, branch, move, and delete product data directly from your web browser with the Collaborative Lifecycle App:

SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Roles

ENOVIAWORKS is a portfolio of browser-based applications that cover the three fundamental phases of product development:

  • Plan: Leverage tasks, issues, and projects to create executable plans and ensure the right things are done at the right time by the right people
  • Develop: Benefit from a collaborative environment that manages cross-discipline design IP and web editing of structures outside CAD.
  • Release: Perform the final validation of product engineering definition using powerful markup and change management.

ENOVIAworks roles currently available include:
