Dassault Systèmes'' Strategic Initiative: 3D XML for Sharing Product Information (TT)
In a bold approach to advance the distribution of product information outward from the CATIA V5 suite of products, Dassault Systèmes announced its new 3D XML for PLM data format. The promise of PLM is to deliver interoperability across the diverse and disparate business and technical applications that stakeholders draw upon for full product planning, design, sourcing, manufacturing, sales/marketing, service, and disposal. Interoperability brings improved competency in not only product development, but assists in enabling the numerous business processes across the enterprise over the course of a product's lifecycle. Dassault Systèmes rightfully anticipates leveraging this 3D data format's compactness and its inherent transfer rate performance to deliver more product openness, breadth, and applicability for all participants in a product's lifecycle.
