Sounds like Catia V6 to me.....
I've never used Dassault Catia V6.
As I mentioned in my initial post, I have used another product that puts PDM first. This product opened my eyes to how data management really should be done. Previous to this experience, I found external PDM to be a huge pain in the ass that was a hassle and just got in the way and slowed me down. I doubt it's a coincidence that the product I've used is also owned by a French company which exhibits many of the same characteristics (both good and bad) as Dassault does.
