Modern shipbuilding - starting with shipbuilding prefabrication - is a logistical challenge. In order to maintain an overview right from the start and to be able to intervene on a daily basis, for example in the event of staff shortages, the Bremen-based Fr. Lürssen shipyard, the Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University and PROSTEP AG have launched the ProProS research project.
PROSTEP AG recently became a member of the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM). The leading PLM consulting and software company is thus underscoring its readiness to become involved in the work performed by committees in new business areas like autonomous driving and help develop the necessary standards.
PROSTEP AG has entered a partnership with LeanIX, the manufacturer of the Enterprise Architecture Suite (EA-Suite), with the aim of providing customers with optimal advice on the development of their enterprise-wide Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) architectures. As a certified LeanIX partner, the leading PLM consulting and software house can now also offer its proven methodology of capability-based strategy consulting to customers on a model-based basis, thereby ensuring sustainable management of their enterprise architecture (EAM).
The shipbuilding experts at PROSTEP had a "hot" autumn with a wealth of events. Our new flagship product OpenPDM SHIP was always with us. The integration platform, which connects special applications for shipbuilding with classic mechanical CAD applications and common PDM/PLM and ERP systems via standardized connectors, attracted attention everywhere.
The full steering system supplier of thyssenkrupp, thyssenkrupp Presta AG, has embarked on an ambitious System Lifecycle Management project to shape its future engineering processes and IT landscape to enable Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). The first step towards SLM is to implement a new PLM solution. PROSTEP steers the SLM team through the technical specification and system evaluation process.

As a certified LeanIX partner, we can now offer our customers our proven methodology of capability-based strategy consulting in a model-based form, thus ensuring the sustainable management of their enterprise architecture (EAM).
The Secure Additive Manufacturing Platform for the secure exchange of 3D print data, which PROSTEP has developed together with partners, is becoming a prime example of the industrial use of the blockchain. No matter where we present the results of the SAMPL project, the solution is very well received. At the IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona, we demonstrated how it can be used to print licensed spare parts for the Mars Rover.
PROSTEP is actively participating in key funding projects for the validation and verification of autonomous driving functions such as V&V and SET Level 4to5, which are of strategic importance for the digital transformation of the automotive industry. As the leading, vendor-independent PLM consulting and software company, we will support its partners from industry and the research community in the testing and industrialization of project results.
An interview with M. Kurt Saygin PROSTEP is a supporting member of Engineers Without Borders Germany (Ingenieure ohne Grenzen e.V. (IOG)). In an interview for the PROSTEP newsletter, M. Kurt Saygin, chairman of the organization's board, discussed the objectives and activities of the non-profit aid organization, which in recent years has implemented infrastructure projects in 30 countries together with local partners. The staff, which is mainly made up of volunteers, provides engineering-specific support that helps people help themselves. In development alliances, all participants face the challenge of efficiently coordinating their collaboration across various CAx and PLM systems. CONTACT Software and PROSTEP AG are therefore pooling their skills in the areas of IT, processes and methods in order to offer suitable solutions for different collaboration scenarios
"There are so many ways to achieve happiness - one of them is to stop moaning," Albert Einstein once said. I am reminded of his bon mot almost daily when I open a newspaper. Germany likes to moan about the economic crisis, which is not (yet) an economic crisis, the political situation, climate change, etc. And when it comes to digitalization, focus tends to be placed on the risks it poses rather than the opportunities to enhance our competitiveness it offers. Moaning has never made the world a better place. Original article by Bernd Pätzold.
