White paper on the integration of production planning with OpenPDM

Many companies need to make their production processes more flexible and control them more intelligently if they are to bring their products to market faster and boost their competitiveness. The key to this is end-to-end digitalization. It requires better integration of manufacturing process management (MPM) and production planning and control (PPC) into the digital information flows of product development and production. In a new white paper, PROSTEP explains how end-to-end digitalization can be implemented effectively even in heterogeneous IT system landscapes.

New white paper on the advantages of the 3D master concept

In many companies, the end-to-end use of digital product information is hampered by the fact that it is still passed on based on drawings. Therefore, the first step on the way to the Digital Thread and the Model-Based Enterprise is the implementation of the 3D master concept. A new PROSTEP white paper describes the advantages and challenges involved.

Model Based Definition: The Path to the 3D Master

The end-to-end use of digital information in engineering is made more difficult today by the fact that 2D drawings are still a central source of information for subsequent processes in many companies, alongside the 3D model. As a result,
information relevant to production or quality is not available in machine-readable form. The implementation of the 3D
master concept is therefore the first step on the way to the digital thread and the Model-Based Enterprise. This white paper describes why it is a good idea to go down this path and what challenges are associated with it in the PLM context.

Gartner Study

Doubts about the success of the European cloud project GAIA-X

While the global market for public IaaS services from the cloud, led by Amazon, Microsoft and Alibaba, is growing almost relentlessly and, according to Gartner, will reach a volume of almost 91 billion US dollars in 2021, the European cloud project GAIA-X is not getting off the ground. In view of the lack of implementations, Forrester analysts give the project little chance of success.
