CATIA V5 PLM Express Knowledge Templates (PKE)


Lengthy engineering changes are often the cause of delays and increased production costs. Companies need to capitalize on their know-how with built-in knowledge templates to save time and focus on innovation.

CATIA – Knowledge Templates enables the creation of intelligent design templates that embed geometry and know-how to reuse with maximum security.


  • Increased ability to innovate by automating repetitive and tedious design tasks
  • Reduced time for bidding and increases responsiveness to inevitable customer engineering changes during design and manufacturing
  • Faster production ensures high quality development
  • Reduced product complexity and lower overall product development costs
  • Usage of user defined features enables management of IP protection between OEM and supplier chain while preserving industrial usage within the company.


  • Interactive creation of intelligent feature templates (user defined features)
  • Interactive creation of intelligent part and assembly templates including geometry construction and design/engineering rules
  • Adaptable to changes in design environments or in internal specifications
  • Includes downstream documents (analysis, drawing or manufacturing) in part and assembly templates definition
  • Catalogs storage for easy access
  • Automatic sequence generation of user defined features or geometric elements
