ENOVIA is the product data manager (vault, release engine, collaboartion tool) for high-end CATIA V5 users. It is also a Dassult product like CATIA. Companies on the scale of Boeing use it. Dassault has worked hard to incestually integrate CATIA V5 and ENOVIA V5... The assembly relationships between parts is stored in ENOVIA. So are bills of materials and other data. Making assemblies and retrieving them is a real pain because you have to deal with ENOVIA BS. Saving parts is a pain because ENOVIA is slow, etc.

A smaller organization would just save catparts off to a file erver or use a simpler pdm database like SmartTeam. Boeing picked the most complex route possible.
