VALIDAT assures adherence to the data quality corresponding to the VOLKSWAGEN Norm 01059 part 6. Your CATIA V5 documents are checked with some company-specific criteria for the adherence to this norm. For several messages in VALIDAT repair functions are available.
VALIDAT can carry out a structure analysis of the CATIA model. The function for the simplified link analysis (without PX1/VX1), existing since VALIDAT V5 version 2.0.7, became with VALIDAT V5 version 2.3.6 the standard testing method.
A PX1/VX1 license is still needed for automated directory monitoring of assemblies (ZSB, KPR) with VALIDAT Batch (Watch directory).
The quality of the changed data is evaluated as per the unique criteria with VALIDAT as the check program executes a control of the created CAD data as per the VDA recommendation 4955/4. Thus the quality of the CAD elements and element connections can be determined as per the defined check criteria. According to the check requirements tolerance values can be set and saved. The graphical representation of the check results enable quick and target-oriented search of different areas and elements.
VALIDAT is available in the expansion stage: Basis and Professional.
