Design-to-Configure process solution: "Design-to-Configure" — with SMARTEAM — BOM license, available from EDR/WED/NVR and all CAD Integrations (not applicable to SMARTEAM — MI Integration (MII)).

Automatic BOM creation and update from directly within CAD Integrations

V5.17 introduces a revolutionary concept that covers all engineering item statuses, providing a true competitive advantage against the competition. The integration of the ENOVIA SmarTeam "Design-to-Configure" solution, directly from within each of ENOVIA SmarTeam multi-CAD integrations. The solution empowers collaborative engineering scenarios, and provides unique competitive value.

A SMARTEAM — BOM license, together with the CAD integration provide a seamless work method with predefined settings based on best practices for automatic BOM creation and update directly from the CAD integration through a simple "save" or specific life-cycle operation, such as "Release".

In this manner, the E-BOM is created automatically upon design, benefiting the entire organization for various purposes in very early stages. For example, the procurement department can send bids to suppliers for long-lead Items, compare quotes, and order from as early as the design phase, saving time, and money. Any change in the design will automatically update the relevant Item line in the BOM, and will maintain other BOM Items intact.

Design Items that are not part of the BOM, such as Jigs and Fixtures, will be manually flagged out from the creation or update of the BOM, thus providing accurate product structure. The proper BOM structure is propagated throughout the organization, minimizing errors, eliminating Item redundancy, and expediting processes.

This capability is available from any ENOVIA SmarTeam CAD Integration (not applicable to SMARTEAM — MI Integration (MII)), as well as upon demand directly from SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR), and requires a license of SMARTEAM — BOM (BOM). For more information, refer to the section describing SMARTEAM — BOM Product (BOM).

Comparison of Document tree to Engineering BOM: SMARTEAM — BOM enables users to easily compare a Document tree with its corresponding Item tree through an automatic, out-of-the-box, predefined Compare tool. In this manner, users are empowered with improved decision-making, taking into consideration design changes, and their implications on the BOM Items. In a concurrent engineering environment, where multiple engineers relate to a single source of an Engineering BOM, they are able to retrieve the most relevant E-BOM representation.

This capability is available from any ENOVIA SmarTeam CAD Integration (not applicable to SMARTEAM — MI Integration (MII)), as well as upon demand directly from the SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR), and requires a license of SMARTEAM — BOM (BOM).

SMARTEAM — Web Editor/Navigator Products (WED/NVR)

Enhanced usability

  • New GUI

    The new SMARTEAM — Web Editor GUI includes modern web design, utilizing improved space usage and new icons. The interface is clearly divided into the following content areas: Menu, application toolbar, two object browsing panes, and the selected object profile card.

  • Ergonomics enhancements include:
    • New icon toolbar for the most commonly-used operations, such as, add to clipboard, clear selection, and filter.
    • Cockpit selection from the application toolbar
    • Full text search box area
    • Object-browsing capability
      • Navigation pane — Upon selection of an object, the main object browsing pane includes its commonly-used linked object types. This flexible content area displays the linked objects in a tree structure. The user may override public settings with their selected ones.
      • Related objects pane — Flexible and dynamic display area for presenting additional linked objects in a flat format, to reduce the visual overload of data from the main navigation pane. This pane can be resized and minimized.
      • Selection of a leading object — Setting of a leading object default is now enabled directly from the new command bar of the object profile card. The selection of a leading object is now made easily as setting a "Favorite" object.
    • Adding Clipboard capabilities for improved user productivity. The user can easily reuse selected objects for fast work experience.
    • Desktop Last Public Revision filtering — in the first level of a Desktop View or in the first level of objects that are directly linked to folders, or leading objects, ENOVIA SmarTeam displays only the "Last public revision" objects, and filters out all the other statuses. The "Last public revision" selection does not propagate to its linked objects, thus does not break the product structure.
    • Life-cycle operations
      • Open — any file can be opened directly from WED by its native authoring application, including CAD applications, for file modification.
      • The "Run" button in a life-cycle operation setting applies all changes automatically, replacing the "Apply Changes" button.
    • Support for Workflow script tasks — WED supports various workflow script tasks adapting to specific organizational process needs. For example, upon a "check-in" operation of a new object, the script can automatically add the appropriate relevant record in the relevant Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system (in case such a connectivity is defined).

Security

  • Add and secure objects to restricted projects — Users are able to add objects and secure them to a restricted project based on their project-based authorizations. In previous releases, users needed to have global authorization in order to add objects prior to linking them to a restricted project. In this manner, companies can assign users to selected projects, and the users get permission to work in the boundaries of the specific project, thus adhering to the enterprise security work model.
  • IT certification — supports Java plug-in and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 (also known as 5) for all ENOVIA SmarTeam supported operating systems. The extended range of JRE support (1.4.2 — 1.5) enables customers to use their default JRE, proving a simple Web-supported environment.

This capability is available from any ENOVIA SmarTeam CAD Integration (not applicable for SMARTEAM — MI Integration (MII)), as well as upon demand directly from SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR), and requires a license of SMARTEAM — BOM (BOM).

Comparison of Document tree to Engineering BOM: SMARTEAM — BOM enables users to easily compare a Document tree with its corresponding Item tree through an automatic, out-of-the-box, predefined Compare tool. In this manner, users are empowered with improved decision-making, taking into consideration design changes, and their implications on the BOM Items. In a concurrent engineering environment, whereby multiple engineers relate to a single source of an Engineering BOMs, they are able to retrieve the most relevant E-BOM representation.

This capability is available from any SmarTeam CAD Integration (not applicable for SMARTEAM — MI Integration (MII)), as well as upon demand directly from the SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR), and requires a license of SMARTEAM — BOM (BOM).

Integration of the SmarTeam 'Design-to-Configure' solution directly from within each of SmarTeam multi-CAD Integrations empowers collaborative engineering scenarios, and provides unique competitive value.

Item behavior and life-cycle management: Item Management is the basic backbone for BOM-based engineering companies. It addresses all product maturity phases across a product's life cycle, and providing an efficient framework for covering Engineering Configuration Management scenarios.

The typical Engineering Configuration Management scenario is about establishing a process for identifying and defining Configuration Items, and recording, reporting the status, and verifying the completeness and correctness of them.

SMARTEAM — BOM manages the physical and the logical relationship of engineering data by supporting specific data manipulation and features as follows.

Item life-cycle management is the core enabler for Item Management. In V5.17, SMARTEAM — BOM provides flexible and configurable Item life-cycle rules in order to address complex Engineering Configuration Management scenarios.

In V5.17, ENOVIA SmarTeam introduces a new and extremely powerful concept in item life-cycle management, which is called, "Go-to State" Item Management. Depending on their actual status, items can be shifted back and forth to any engineering state, including all behavior and business rules that relate to that state. The "Go-to State" Item Management greatly enhances an engineering organization's ability to react swiftly and flexibly to the development engineering and manufacturing reality, promoting or demoting an Item to another state, as the situation demands in accordance with enterprise rules.

The "Go-to State" concept delivers a new, highly flexible Item Behavior definition that includes diverse, pre-defined, yet flexible item life-cycle statuses, specific properties for each state, business rules, and an engine that drives items between states, based on these rules. An organization can use the core Item Behavior definition to rapidly define the states relevant to their needs, such as "Design-for-Prototype", "Release-for-Planning", and "Release-for-Mass Production".

SMARTEAM — BOM's "Go-to State" concept promotes the optimal management for an item over the course of the item's life cycle, enhancing the engineering process to ensure item quality and maturity.

SMARTEAM — BOM's Item life-cycle management capabilities are applicable for both complete Item Structures as well as for Single Items, and their corresponding flexible business rules. Item life-cycle management provides the following capabilities:

  • Grant "Lock Structure", "Revise" (New Item Revision) and "Public" properties to any Item's life-cycle state
  • Allow Product Structure filtering according to complex life-cycle revision rules, based on Revision/State/Phase
  • Demote and Inactive operations for Items life cycle

Product behavior and multiple views management: SMARTEAM — BOM delivers an out-of-the-box environment for defining and managing the product throughout its life cycle. This environment enables manufacturers to handle:

  • Overall product information as a single structured source of data
  • Several configurations throughout the life cycle
  • Multiple versions and efficient revision control
  • Different revision rules on different item structures and dynamic filtering criteria
  • Item — Product relations and definition of various Product Views for items top assemblies
  • Product families, models and Configuration Items
  • Alternative sets of items

SMARTEAM — BOM supports alternative configuration views of the product and its Item structures. SMARTEAM — BOM's powerful Multiple Views configuration management environment optimizes product development and knowledge reuse processes across the enterprise.

Views functions include:

  • Ability to open a "Configuration View" from an Item
  • "Where Used" and "Composed of" operations across various Configuration Views
  • Easy "Drag and Drop" of Items and Assemblies across Multiple Views
  • "Mass Change" across Multiple Structures by "Revised" life-cycle operation — "Link to Parents of previous revisions"

BOM editing capabilities: The BOM Editor provides several structure representation modes, such as multi-level and single-level quantity-based representations, BOM Summary mode and a configurable item location validation mechanism, such as reference designator for electronic components or balloon numbers for mechanical engineering. Item multi appearance (Instantiation) mode efficiently represents manufacturing BOMs, with operational sequence per location capabilities.

The embedded BOM Editor empowers the user with an easy-to-use editing environment, enabling:

  • Full editing capabilities
  • In-session highlighting
  • Multi-cell "In-cell" editing
  • Notes & Comments
  • "Wise" bulk replace — for replacement of all Item appearances within a specified BOM
  • Summary BOM mode for quantity calculation
  • Filtering rules
  • Ability to export data to Excel
  • History of changes tracking
  • Multi- and single-level representation modes

Generic Copy tool and Mapper utility: A unique and powerful Generic Copy tool combines object structures copy and synchronization capabilities. It is based on data model business rules that enable mapping of various object classes and attributes, and provides enterprise users with continuous structured data flow and transformation on top of different data model implementations, such as from a "Requirements BOM" to "Cost BOM" from a CAD Design structure to Engineering BOM and so on.

The pre-configured Generic Copy tool:

  • Enables the creation and management of complex product structures, with configuration management rules applied.

    Users can:

    • Copy structures from any given class to any class
    • Use existing objects or create new ones
  • Provides support for multiple views, combined with the required management tools for creation, manipulation and synchronization of views
  • Enables workflow automation on BOM changes
  • Incorporates suppliers and sub-contractors in an easy, secured approach, using data exchange tools

In addition, the Generic Copy tool:

  • Maps "Not in BOM" business rules
  • Synchronizes structures in various phases (not only upon initial creation)
  • Fully supports "FFF" (Form, Fit, Function) revision rules and changes through structure consolidation
  • Operates in a silent mode for auto-synchronized views, within the CAD environment

Usability: Change naming titles and labels in UI — SMARTEAM — BOM user interface has been updated in order to support the new BOM concept, which distinguishes between fully embedded Item and BOM management capabilities in SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR) and capabilities that enable off-line BOM handling based on the ENOVIA SmarTeam Briefcase tool.

New installation procedure: V5.17 introduces a new installation procedure for SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR), whereby SMARTEAM — BOM and SMARTEAM — Workflow components are fully embedded components within the SMARTEAM — Editor installation.

SMARTEAM — BOM includes two embedded components for:

  1. Item Management, product structure handling and multiple views and embedded BOM Management
  2. Engineering data exchange using Briefcase and supported utilities

The SMARTEAM — BOM license provides both capabilities. For additional information, please read the Installation Guide available on the documentation CD-ROM.

SMARTEAM — CATIA Supply Chain Engineering Exchange Product (SEE)

Usability

  • Report generation and print capability

    Users can generate reports of the reconciliation session in order to view, for example, the reconciled documents, and the rules that were applied. The report layout can be customized by defining an XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language) file. The report is displayed in an HTML viewer format, and is printable.

  • Document View

    A new tab called VPDM View displays a Document tree similar to the one shown in CATIA View but representing the structure stored in the ENOVIA SmarTeam database. The VPDM View displays a Document tree based on the expanded identified root Document. The identification between CATIA and ENOVIA SmarTeam Documents is displayed in the VPDM view.

  • ENOVIA SmarTeam profile card attributes are available from the contextual menu

    Complete profile card details of a selected reconciled document are available in the SEE contextual menu.

  • Automatic queries, identification and reconciliation rules upon pre-defined settings

    Pre-defined settings for queries, identification and reconciliation rules enable users to automatically apply them for all CATIA documents, and in a single operation upon launch of the SEE application. This drastically saves the user's time. Upon completion of this step, users are free to modify the proposed identification and/or the rule.

  • Improved efficiency for the reconciliation of documents originating from ENOVIA VPLM (or STEP)

    ENOVIA VPLM V5 documents and especially CATProduct documents are natively reconciled.

  • Support of a Batch Mode

    Reconciliation of documents can be automated in a batch mode process. Users can automate the entire process and launch SEE from a command prompt with a particular syntax.

  • Improved usability and ergonomic
    • Global set operations can be performed on a selected sub-tree instead on the whole tree, and cancelled, if needed, depending on the progression on the new progress bar.
    • The current sheet of drafting documents loaded in CATIA is displayed in a 2D viewer.
    • Registration criteria parameters are maintained when the same interactive query is used on the same document twice.

CAD Integration products
  • Design-to-configure solution

    Available to all CAD Integrations, (not applicable to SMARTEAM - MI Integration (MII)).

    The integration of the ENOVIA SmarTeam "Design-to-Configure" solution, as described in SMARTEAM — BOM enhancements, directly from within each of ENOVIA SmarTeam multi-CAD Integrations empowers collaborative engineering scenarios, and provides unique competitive value. This capability requires a license of SMARTEAM — BOM (BOM).

  • Latest CAD version certification

SMARTEAM — CATIA Integration (CAI)

Latest version support: SMARTEAM — CATIA Integration product support CATIA V5.17, V5.16, and V5.15

Intact, bi-directional life-cycle operations: Users can activate all life-cycle operations options from either the CATIA environment or the ENOVIA SmarTeam environment, maintaining complete data integrity. This ergonomic gain enables user to create and manage design in a seamless manner, and directly from their active work area.

3D XML support: SMARTEAM — CATIA Integration supports 3D XML file format as an alternative preview file format. 3D XML file formats contain both 3D representation and product-structure information. Administrators can easily customize the database to generate 3D XML files instead of, or in addition to the CGR files for CATProduct previews. The 3D XML format, just as the CGR format, enables users to easily view and analyze the product structure directly from the viewer (the ENOVIA SmarTeam embedded Dassault Systemes 3D PLM Viewer) for the benefit of other members in the organization.

Users can also insert this lightweight 3D XML Internet file format into a Word document, as well as send the file in an e-mail to suppliers or any non-CAD user, thus incorporating them into the three-dimensional experience.

Download 3D XML Viewer for free at

Drawing multi-sheet preview support: The embedded 3D PLM viewer enables CATIA users to view all drawing sheets, rather than just the active sheet level.

Inserting a component in a Project Browser mode: Users can now easily insert a component by browsing the project hierarchy, and selecting the appropriate document — the same as is done for open or replace component command. The administrator can easily define the "insert component" options, for example, from an ENOVIA SmarTeam search, or any other way. In this manner, companies can enforce best-practice use of ENOVIA SmarTeam, offering the preferred work method.

Maintaining revision-managed structure accuracy during file modification ("Replace with selected revision" on modified CATPart documents)

ENOVIA SmarTeam enables users to unload outdated files during file modification, as well as propagating the change to the entire CATIA structure, thus maintaining data accuracy, and making it available to other concurrent users, ENOVIA SmarTeam revision management mechanism synchronizes the vault with the user work area, and maintains CATIA structure accuracy.

The CATIA structure remains updated as users unload outdated documents, and upload selected document revisions even during file modification, using the "Replace with Selected Revision" command. Another example is when checking out a parent assembly, which needs to propagate to its hierarchical dependencies. Outdated revisions of the assembly components will be unloaded and replaced by updated ones.

Performance

  • Optimized opening of large assemblies and Catalog Browsing

    ENOVIA SmarTeam now optimizes CATIA file transfer between the vault and the user's work area, and extracts only the necessary files from the vault, while maintaining all links consistency. In this manner, ENOVIA SmarTeam eliminates redundant files in the work area and provides faster upload time.

  • Remote databases with local vault (pseudo WAN)

    In V5.17, ENOVIA SmarTeam provides improved response time performance for database requests in multiple site scenarios, where a local site, which is not on the same network as the central ENOVIA SmarTeam database is sending request to the Database. In this configuration performance improvement is dependent on the latency of the network. In some configurations, users can save up to 50% time.

Integration in CATIA Knowledge programming language: By integrating to CATIA programming language, ENOVIA SmarTeam identifies and adheres to rules that are set in CATIA, for example while inserting appropriate components for ENOVIA SmarTeam to CATIA.

In the context of CATIA Knowledge Advisor (KWA) product, when defining reactions to an event, the SMARTEAM — CATIA Integration enables users to perform dedicated ENOVIA SmarTeam related actions, such as "Insert & Replace" component by ones stored in ENOVIA SmarTeam. The KWA product allows users to define "reactions". A reaction is a way to perform dedicated actions upon an occurrence of a specific event. Examples of events include:

  • Instantiation and update of a user-defined feature
  • Objects Drag & Drop
  • Insert/Replace component (creation, destruction, update, attribute changes)

The system is open and customized. It supports a large scale of actions upon occurrence of events. Customization can be made via the following ways:

  • In Knowledge language to access existing objects in the document
  • In VisualBasic to extend action scope. It can access the source object and its arguments.

In V5.17, two new methods are defined in knowledge language:

  • InsertByURL — Inserts a Product or an Item stored in the ENOVIA SmarTeam database into an assembly opened by a CATIA session.
  • ReplaceByURL — Replaces an instance in the assembly by a Product or an Item stored in the ENOVIA SmarTeam database.

Additional details on previously announced functions: The WLS Companion Server facilitates deployment by eliminating the need to install the license function and complete user companion Java client on individual student machines. Instead, the server runs these functions using a J2EE application server software, such as IBM WebSphere or Apache Tomcat.

The standard WLS user companion installation, whether in a file standalone mode or HTTP page server mode, requires a full Java client and WLS license to be installed on each student client machine. The Companion Server consolidates these functions on a single machine to streamline the licensing process and to improve user companion response time.

Note: In Software Announcement 205-278 , dated November 8, 2005, we stated incorrectly that the functionality of SMARTEAM — Electronics Template Product, which was withdrawn from marketing at that time, was available in SMARTEAM — Editor (EDR) Product. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the error.

      IntelliMouse (two buttons plus a wheel instead of the third button) is an alternative to the three-button mouse on Windows workstations. The wheel acts as the middle button to allow additional manipulations, such as panning and scrolling.

The robustness of the overall solution is dependent on the robustness of the operating system and the hardware environment used. Windows hardware configurations certified by Dassault Systemes for running ENOVIA SmarTeam products are published at

Although WLS V5 products might run on configurations or with graphic adapters other than those specified for each of the platforms below, incidents specific to such configurations or adapters will not be accepted for support.

Hardware requirements for Windows 2000 and Windows XP:

  • System unit: An Intel® Pentium III or Pentium 4-based workstation running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Edition or Windows XP Professional Edition.
  • Graphics adapter: A graphics adapter with a 3D OpenGL accelerator is required.

    Note: Graphic performance on local transformations (panning, zooming, rotating model) will depend on the selected graphics adapter. The graphics adapter should have the following capabilities:

    • 24-bits, true color, double buffered visual
    • 24-bits, Z-buffer
    • Stencil buffer
    • Minimum supported resolution: 1024 x 768; a resolution of 1280 x 1024 is recommended for usability reasons
  • Network adapter: An active LAN adapter (Ethernet or Token Ring, installed and configured) is required for license key purposes.

WLS software requirements

Prerequisites for the license management environment

Microsoft Windows workstations must have an active LAN card (Ethernet or token ring) and TCP/IP installed and properly configured, even in the case of nodelock keys, though for nodelock there is no need to have the workstations connected to the network. No additional license management software is required when accessing nodelock license keys.

License Use Management (LUM) is required to serve concurrent license keys across a network. A LUM configuration file (i4ls.ini) is required on WLS V5 for ENOVIA SmarTeam clients to access concurrent license keys from these servers. Server license management mechanisms are available for all supported operating environments. Nodelock licensing management mechanisms are only available on supported Windows environments.

IBM LUM level:

  • V4.6.8 + Patch 4.6.8.3 is the certified, recommended level.
  • V4.6.5 is the minimum level for UNIX, Windows 2000 Professional, Server, Advanced Server, or XP license key servers.
  • V4.6.7 is the minimum level for Windows Server 2003 license key servers.
  • V4.6.5 is the minimum level when the High Availability Licensing (HAL) mechanism offered by LUM is used.
  • V4.6.8 supports LUM service across a firewall and other new features. ( However, this behavior is not currently supported by ENOVIA SmarTeam Products. )

Various release levels of LUM, including LUM V4.6.8 + Patch 4.6.8.3, can be downloaded at no charge from

WLS license management — Licenses can be managed either using standard CATIA V5 licensing or by using the J2EE Companion Server. For standard licensing, refer to the Prerequisites for the license management environment section. Requirements for the J2EE Companion Server are:

  • Application server setup — The application server used must support Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 and must be able to handle the Companion Server WAR or EAR files. These files are copied during installation if the application server option was selected during the installation procedure. The server setup operation depends on the application server used and must be done by the system administrator.
  • Companion application setup for license serving — The application server machine must be able to access WLS licenses, and licenses must be available to this server machine. For the Enterprise Option, the total number of licenses must be equal to the maximum number of students that will be connected at the same time to the application server.

ENOVIA SmarTeam Packaging and Products

The ENOVIA SmarTeam packaging model gives customers an easy way to select the solution best suited to their user profiles and process requirements. At the heart of this model are the following:

  • Platforms
  • Solutions
  • Configurations
  • Products

Platforms and Solutions

ENOVIA SmarTeam solutions, their configurations, and products address typical customer profiles. ENOVIA SmarTeam provides basic applications in a suite of feature-based solid modeling solutions that comply with Microsoft Windows user interface guidelines. These solutions offer a familiar production environment for users who are already comfortable with native Windows applications.

Configurations

Configurations provide a convenient and attractive way for customers to order and install a selected combination of products appropriate to a particular user profile as a single licensed offering. Configurations can be used in either of two licensing modes:

ENOVIA SmarTeam add-on and shareable products require a license for a configuration that includes at least the prerequisite products. License keys for ENOVIA SmarTeam configurations are acquired and released for the total configuration. The functions within a configuration cannot be shared.

A configuration is required for each ENOVIA SmarTeam seat. There are two types of configurations:

  • Standard Configurations: Contain a predefined set of functions and products, corresponding to the most common user profiles across industries and processes. These configurations are offered at an attractive price compared to the sum of the prices of the individual products. Any number of shareable products can be ordered to complement a standard configuration.
  • Custom Configurations: Customize any standard configuration by adding SmarTeam add-on products. Custom configurations allow customers to adapt configuration content to specific user needs while still benefiting from competitive configuration pricing.

    A custom configuration can be ordered for one seat, or an unlimited number of identical seats. The number of each add-on product in a custom configuration must equal the number of base configurations ordered. Regardless of the number of seats ordered, a custom configuration order will generate a single serial number and will have a single license assigned. After installation, any changes made to the base configuration must be applied to all seats under that serial number.

After initial installation, configurations allow customers to manage the evolution and growth of configurations by ordering additional add-on or shareable products.

Products

Products are the elementary software building blocks for ENOVIA SmarTeam installations. Products may be ordered in three ways:

  1. As a predefined set of products included in a standard configuration
  2. As add-on products on top of a standard configuration to build a custom configuration.
  3. As a shareable product . In this case the product is delivered with its own license key. Shareable products allow one user to obtain the key at the beginning of the session, or to leave it for another user within the network.

System program order (5628-SMT)

To ship machine-readable materials and publications and to register for future updates, one System Program Order (5628-SMT) must be placed in addition to the basic license orders.

Within the System Program Order, specify the Media Feature Number for each of the workstation platforms you will be using, and the feature code of the Solution products you are ordering, based on the following tables:

ENOVIA SmarTeam adheres to the CATIA V5 license management model (exceptions are noted).

The license management model

CATIA V5 license management model

CATIA controls the number of concurrent users of a CATIA configuration or product, according to the number of license keys acquired for the configuration or product.

CATIA V5 delivers identical license management mechanisms on UNIX and Windows environments, based on IBM LUM. ( ENOVIA SmarTeam is Windows only. ) The following license management principles apply:

  • A CATIA V5 configuration (standard or custom) will require a license key. ( In ENOVIA SmarTeam, configurations are implemented with separate Product license keys. ) License keys for CATIA V5 configurations are acquired and released for the total configuration. The products within a configuration cannot be shared. ( In ENOVIA SmarTeam, this rule may not be strictly enforced. However, it should be adhered to, as it may be enforced in future releases. )
  • Each CATIA V5 shareable product will require a license key, in addition to one for the prerequisite configuration and any prerequisite product, if applicable.
  • In all cases, CATIA configuration license keys are acquired at the beginning of the process and are released at its termination.
  • CATIA V5 add-on (AOP) and shareable products may require license keys for prerequisite products that are not already included in a standard configuration. Prerequisites for shareable products can be satisfied by a standard configuration, by an AOP within a custom configuration, or by a shareable product. However, because all add-on products are defined within one custom license key, any AOP prerequisites must be satisfied by either a standard configuration or by other AOPs purchased and defined within the same custom configuration. ( Due to the mentioned exception, this rule does not apply in ENOVIA SmarTeam. However, it should be adhered to, as it may be enforced in future releases. )

CATIA V5 can be used in three license management modes: nodelock, with concurrent usage of license keys on a network, or concurrent offline license management. ( ENOVIA SmarTeam does not support concurrent offline license management. )

Nodelock usage: The use of a local display is mandatory for CATIA V5 usage in nodelock mode. There is no limit to the number of CATIA V5 processes launched for a given license key (configuration or product). For instance, a user can launch the following simultaneous processes:

  • A V5 interactive session
  • A V5 process executed through an OLE container application
  • Replay of macros recorded from captured sequences of V5 user interactions

In the nodelock mode of operation, only one CATIA license key per configuration and shareable product can be registered per machine, and only one CATIA user can run at a time on that machine. If multiple license keys per configuration or shareable product, or multiple users on a single machine, are required, refer to the Concurrent usage section.

Concurrent usage: A user on one machine on one display uses one license key per configuration or shareable product used, regardless of the number of processes. If the display changes, then an additional license key is taken for the corresponding process.

Dynamic license management: ( Does not apply to ENOVIA SmarTeam — dynamic license management is not supported in ENOVIA SmarTeam. ) CATIA shareable product license keys can be acquired and released during the session. (The ability to acquire and release licenses is not available for configurations.) Shareable license keys acquired at the beginning of the session cannot be released before the end of the session; only license keys dynamically granted upon user request during the session can be released during the session.

Concurrent offline license management: ( Does not apply to ENOVIA SmarTeam — concurrent offline license management is not supported in ENOVIA SmarTeam. ) A concurrent license key control technique is available via the LUM server. It gives CATIA, ENOVIA DMU, DELMIA, and RADE applications running on a Windows laptop the ability to disconnect from the license key server for a specific period of time. During the checkout period, the server license key is unavailable for use by another concurrent user. This feature is designed to add additional flexibility to a user's work environment. It is offered to accommodate short-term travel needs and collaboration while away from a fixed office environment or server connection. All ICA terms and conditions, including cross-border licensing terms, are unchanged, and users will check-out and check-in license keys at their home server, where rules and procedures are controlled by LUM.

Note to users of the following ENOVIA SmarTeam-branded CATIA integration products:

  • CATIA Team PDM Configuration (TDM)
  • CATIA Integration Product (CAI)

These ENOVIA SmarTeam products do not support dynamic or concurrent offline license management. Licenses for these products are acquired dynamically when the function is invoked from CATIA and may not be released until the CATIA session is ended.

Program services

Program Services offer a method of reporting code-related problems for ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 and WLS licensed software products. Program Services are available electronically using the problem submission process at the PLM Technical Support Web site at

Note: In order to use this facility, you must use an IBM ID which has associated to it the licensed IBM customer number under which the product was purchased. If you have not yet obtained an IBM ID, visit

If you have not yet associated the licensed IBM customer number to your IBM ID, you will be prompted to do so when accessing the problem submission facility.

When using Program Services, the problem report is submitted via the PLM Technical Support web site; all subsequent communications will be via e-mail. The response time for these problem reports, regardless of the severity, will be within two business days. All communications must be in English.

Not all options of the PLM technical support e-services are available in all countries.

If the problem reported is not known to be a code-related problem, the customer will be informed that work will continue on it provided the customer has ECSR (Electronic Customer Support Representative) enhanced support (reference PRPQ 5799-C88) with the ENOVIA SmarTeam support feature. Enhanced support for WLS is included in the base product's feature code; no separate enhanced support is required.

For additional information about the enhanced support contract and other available PLM services offerings visit

Click on the "ECSR Enhanced support details" link or contact your PLM marketing representative or authorized IBM Business Partner for more information.

Preventive Service is delivered through the next release of ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 products. The new release also includes corrections to problems, depending on the time of their submission and their severity.

During the Program Services period, Corrective Service for ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 releases is delivered through service packs on a regular basis. A service pack includes corrections for Blocking problems in production systems reported on this release and all corrections available for all components at the time it is built. Service packs are provided at the same time for all platforms currently supported. Each service pack supersedes the previous one and may be installed on top of the released level or on top of a previous service pack. The exception is WLS products where corrective service is provided in the next release of the product. No maintenance for WLS products is provided in the service packs.)

Customers may request a correction via a service pack for Blocking Problems. A Blocking Problem is defined as:

  • A problem that stops production: The customer is currently using the level for which a fix is requested in a production environment.
  • A problem that prevents migration: The customer must provide the migration plan.
  • A problem that halts testing of a given level: A fix will allow customer to continue the testing.
  • Installation problem: A problem that prevents the customer from installing or using the product.
  • Regression: Problems reported as regressions may be due to an operation that was being performed erroneously or created incorrect data with a previous release and the current release no longer permits these operations. Therefore, each problem reported as a regression must be evaluated. True regressions will be handled as Severity 1 problems.

Note: Customers experiencing problems with DB2 UDB V8.2 delivered with the ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 product may report these problems through PLM product support, as long as DB2 UDB is being used in conjunction with ENOVIA SmarTeam and the DB2 and ENOVIA SmarTeam products are still within their respective support periods. Customers will receive the same level of support as they are entitled to for their ENOVIA SmarTeam products.

Customers experiencing problems with IBM LUM products when used with ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 products may report these problems through PLM product support. Note this only applies when the LUM product is being used in conjunction with an ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 product and the ENOVIA SmarTeam product is within its support period. LUM products are not included in the enhanced support offering; LUM problems will receive the Program Services level of support and must be submitted via the Problem Reporting process at the PLM Technical Support Web site at

Program Services will be provided for this release of ENOVIA SmarTeam and WLS V5 products until September 29, 2008.
