|The V5 Product Structure model is based on the instance-reference model which meets assembly requirements. There is a second need of organizational nature. This is why this new functionality has been created: the insertion of new objects allowing data structuring and organization.|
|The WBS functionality is only available in the context of the ENOVIA LCA/CATIA V5 interoperability.|
You import an existing WBS arborescence into a
CATProduct. One of the created GCO Views
(Generic component) can be designated as the active
View and after the File/Open operation you immediately have access to the
You can associate the
instance of a product to a GCO, with the following constraints: the
instance must be a first instance (directly under the root product), and
this instance can appear only once in a View. You can use the Copy /
Paste or drag and drop functionalities (Light Copy format).
You can insert components, products, parts,... into a GCO node. These elements are under the root product, and an association between the created instance and the GCO node takes place. There are four navigation/visualization modes: Global View, Active View, Product Structure View and GCO View.
In a V5 industrial Assembly, the first assembly levels are generally dedicated to organizational purposes whereas the other levels play the role of an assembly structure:
|In this schema, the
red nodes correspond to the assembly structure whereas the blue ones
represent the organizational role.
You can now insert a new type of object: CATGco (blue nodes in the following schema). It allows you to improve the assembly model and bring flexibility in the organization data:
|The WBS arborescence
has the following benefits:
