CATIA (computer-aided three-dimensional interactive application) is a multi-platform software suite for computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), PLM and 3D, developed by the French company Dassault system.

It enables the development of high-quality mechanical products. Commonly referred to as a powerful 3D Product Lifecycle Management software suite, CATIA supports multiple stages of product development, that covers conceptualization, design, engineering, and manufacturing. CATIA facilitates collaborative engineering across disciplines around its 3D EXPERIENCE platform, including surfacing & shape design, electrical, fluid and electronic systems design. Its engineering, design, and system engineering capabilities make it very useful for the mechanical product manufacturing industry.
