COE Certification

  COE’s new certification program provides users, vendors, consultants and students with a globally valuable index for measuring and promoting their knowledge and skills within the PLM ecosystem. COE’s certification program provides a hands-on standard measure of DS PLM product knowledge and enables participants to assess their skills against market norms. The certification program also offers valuable feedback on training programs by providing a quantitative before-and-after measurement of trainees' acquired skills. COE’s certification is only offered at COE’s Annual PLM Conference. Registered attendees can take the test at a discounted price of $99. There will be an onsite rate of $149 for those who are only participating in the certification and not attending the Conference

V6 PLM Discovery Panel and Panelists

COE's year-long experience partnering with Dassault Systemes to enable 25-30 panelists from COE member companies to gain hands on experience with V6. The panel has created a virtual product design community to virtually create a product. This has been purely experimental and developed in cooperation with DS. COE volunteer panelists have executed assigned project roles such as Project Manager, Design Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer and Technical Publications and summarized their experience to share with COE members. The goal of these panelists has been to virtually design a ‘Nautical Wind Turbine’ making using of DS V6 products of ENOVIA and CATIA. With ENOVIA V6 allowing for such virtual development the experiment is to demonstrate how a virtual design team can design a new project. The underlying software will be based on CATIA V6 and ENOVIA V6. COE has provided updates on the progress, but will now open the documentation to COE members and begin a second Discovery Panel.
