“In my opinion, the major advantage is that it completely does away with the need to convert data. As a rule, the data we receive from our clients is already in V5 format. For example, if we have an assembly made up of two parts with multiple rivets or screw connections, we can use xCompare to check immediately if a nut has been left out. This eliminates the need for all the steps related to converting data in one go and prevents conversion errors from occurring.”
“We have 15,000 users of our PLM system. So, everyone can’t have the same level of expertise and knowledge. We don’t need everyone to understand the whole process, but every user needs to have an easy way to find the relevant information. We saw a couple of examples of what TECHNIA had done with this technology and that inspired us in terms of what direction we should go.”
„The thing about TECHNIA is that they’re Engineers. They speak the language.“
„We had a very positive global user response to TECHNIA’s Helium (TVC) front end compared with past systems presented to the users. We really found the TECHNIA team to be very experienced and knowledgeable. They were very pleasant and easy to work with and had solutions for every problem we presented.“
The implementation of CAVA at Ford Motor Company started in 2007 and was seamlessly integrated into the global company system of CATIA V5. Today, about 100 CAVA users around the world work with the software for global product management in the US, Brazil, Germany, UK, Turkey, Australia, China and India. It is rolled out in several departments.
“Technically, it would have been possible to implement what we wanted with a full customisation, but we had concerns about low compatibility and development cost.”
“In the past we were doing our integrations in a very complex way, but we have simplified and improved that using TIF!”
„We are very happy with our program progress and our selection of TECHNIA as a strategic partner.“
