Creating a Product

This task explains how you should create a product. ENOVIA and CATIA should be running and connected. You should be in the ENOVIA home page .

You should familiarize yourself with the directory structure in ENOVIA. At the top level you will have a directory called product class root - this usually encompasses all the activity in your company. Under this you may have several product class directories. Under the product class will be the product directories. Product  displays in this application, the other two are only displayed in ENOVIA. Users will mostly interact with the product. It is created at individual project level - in a shipyard it will be created for each ship that is designed - and diagrams documents are created under the product. The product class directories may not be created in smaller projects, but the product class root and the product directories should always exist.
1. Information about creating all three levels is provided in ENOVIA documentation. Briefly, to create a product you should be in the Product Class View.

Right click on the product class, select New and then Product in the menus that display. Enter a name for the product in the product ID field. Add to the Name and Description fields for informational purposes if you want. The newly created directory displays in the Product Class View.

2. Click the Save button to save your changes.
A Characteristics window displays after you create a directory. You do not need to enter any information in it. Read the ENOVIA user guide to learn more about this window.
