My company is small, but my products are increasingly complex

By Paul

Small business cloud computingUntil now, the best product development tools were within the reach of only large companies, with teams of IT technicians and administrators.

Small companies have often had to compromise and make do with second best. But the pressure on increasing product, process and eco-system complexity makes second-best uncompetitive.

Cloud solutions level the playing field, removing the “barriers to entry” for small engineering companies. The infrastructure, system security, administration, installation and maintenance is automatic, allowing engineers to concentrate on innovation.

Watch BHR Aerospace describe on video how CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud provides  the framework for an innovative new helicopter program.

The installation was fast and simple; Secure and Collaborative tools are available at the click of a mouse; the right data is available anytime, anywhere and easy and flexible   mechanical simulation means no more physical prototyping!

Find out how large company product development capabilities are now available to SMBs.

From the initial inspirations and the marketing brief, to CATIA Natural Sketch used at the ideation phase to rapidly translate ideas into 3D, CATIA Imagine & Shape for sculpting volumes, proportions and character lines, CATIA Icem for Surface Refinement and advanced surface modeling and CATIA Live Rendering for photorealistic visualization. You will path through the full creative design and development process at the end of this article you will find links to replay the two related webinars and pictures gallery of this showcar.
