Whether you choose a big bang or an incremental PLM data migration, OpenPDM Migrate will move your data with ease.
Migrating and replacing existing CAD and part structures is a challenge. You need the right strategy and know-how for a successful migration. Without an effective strategy, moving large amounts of design data becomes increasingly difficult. Defining the best strategy, such as 'big bang' or 'incremental' migration, along with leveraging the right toolset, will ultimately enable a smooth and successful migration. To get a full understanding of your PLM migration, you need to make sure that you ask the right questions.

From a data view:
Each use case is different and some cases may benefit from a 'one time' migration instead of an incremental migration. But what benefits do we see with each?
One-time migrations, aka 'Big Bang’ or bulk migrations, give you the ability to export data from the source system to a staging database (extract). Data is then mapped to the target system format and any data issues are fixed (transform). Once completed, the entire staging database is imported to the production system.
Incremental migrations allow more complex enterprises to transition from one PLM to another. Migration does not need to happen all at once. Instead, it moves at a pace of your choosing. Users can move to the new system with a new project or remain on the old system until the completion of the existing work. Data ownership is transferred from the old system to the new system and information is synched from the owning system based on the system of record.
Regardless of your chosen strategy, the route to a successful migration includes careful project planning, defined requirements, and identification of the correct deliverables and tasks. Given the considerable complexity of migrations, what tools are best suited to help migrate your data?
Whether your chosen method of PLM migration is one time, staged or incremental, you need a tool that increases the likelihood of success. When you replace a PLM system, you want to ensure:
OpenPDM Migrate allows PLM data from multiple systems and data sources to be fully consolidated. Individual parts, bill of materials (BOMs) and complex product structures can be imported in full to the new PLM system.
