Product Release Engineer

3DEXPERIENCE Product Release Engineer aligns the multi-discipline engineering product definition process with company strategy.

Product Release Engineer Role Overview

With a single, shared engineering product definition, the 3DEXPERIENCE Product Release Engineer (XEN-OC) Role enables engineering and other disciplines to easily complete and validate the product structure and access up-to-date information to advance product innovation.

Product Release Engineer helps reduce engineering definition time by maximizing data reuse, reducing product structure complexity, simplifying product governance through responsibility assignments and ensuring adherence to corporate standards through early definition of product part numbers.

Organize your product structures

Built on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, Product Release Engineer is a cloud-based solution that provides a shared product definition enabling engineering and other teams to access up-to-date information and collaborate easily on product structures. Product Release Engineer helps you accelerate product definition by maximizing data reuse, reducing the complexity of product structure, simplifying product governance and ensuring adherence to corporate standards.

Product Release Engineer enhances user productivity across the value network, delivering a modern, web-based, intuitive and easy-to-use experience for content reviews and organizing engineering data, as well as creating, validating and sharing of product information and design data.

Product Release Engineer Capabilities

Flexible design workflows and real-time collaboration

  • Access Engineering Items

    Leverage a web-based dashboard to gain quick access to a list of engineering items owned by a user. The dashboard enables a “quick start” of a new engineering definition by narrowing the engineering items to those needed to start work.

  • Initiate Advanced Product Definition

    Carry-over an existing engineering definition using advanced re-use strategies to duplicate, reuse and exclude existing engineering definitions to save time and reduce content errors.

  • Define Your Part Numbers

    Set part numbers on engineering items according to your company strategy and ensure the right number is associated with the part early in the process.

  • Manage Your Content and Lifecycle Maturity

    Create the engineering definition and edition using engineering items that can be reused, edited, replaced, revised and released to ensure company form-fit-function practices are respected.

  • Set Ownership of Your Engineering Items

    Assign user responsibility of engineering items to ensure work allocation and sharing follows company strategy.

  • Visualize Your 3D Models

    Visualize and navigate your 3D model and its associated experiences to enhance understanding of the product engineering definition. Use a simple viewer with intuitive tools for non-CAD users to perform actions such as 3D visualization, annotation, rotation, sectioning and distance measurement.

  • Organize Your Smart Data

    Personalize the engineering definition display and organization by selecting the desired view, grouping the displayed engineering items by certain attributes, reordering the columns and data filtering.
