PROSTEP, Inc., the US subsidiary of the PROSTEP Group, recently introduced three integrations that enable the exchange or connection of data between Cameo Systems Modeler from Dassault Systèmes and Teamcenter from Siemens Digital Industries Software. All integrations are based on the PLM integration platform OpenPDM, which can also be used to connect Cameo to PLM solutions from other manufacturers.
The global provider of welding and production automation solutions Pemamek Ltd. has entered into a strategic cooperation with the PROSTEP Group. Using OpenPDM SHIP components, the Finnish company now also offers its customers in the shipbuilding and offshore industries integrations between various CAD/PDM systems and PEMA solutions for welding automation.
Darmstadt, October 2023 – The global provider of welding and production automation solutions Pemamek Ltd. has entered into a strategic cooperation with the PROSTEP Group. The Finnish company now offers integrations between several CAD/PDM systems and PEMA welding automation solutions to its customers in the shipbuilding and offshore industries. The integrations are implemented using components from PROSTEP’s OpenPDM SHIP product family. They enable the loss-free transfer of design and metadata to the PEMA Core software for NC programming, thereby eliminating the need for manual redesigns.
PROSTEP is following up on the announcement that it intends to concentrate on the development of new ERP connectors for the OpenPDM integration platform this year: the PLM consulting and software company recently presented a connector with which the cloud-based ERP Solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP can be connected to common PLM or ALM solutions.
PROSTEP and Altair, a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), have expanded their long-standing partnership, making it easier to connect Altair’s design and simulation platform Altair HyperWorks to popular PLM solutions. Altair integrates powerful OpenPDM connectors to corresponding PLM systems directly into the platform’s CAE solutions such as Altair HyperMesh.
In order to achieve end-to-end digitalization, companies need not only powerful integration and collaboration solutions, but also expert advice and support in transforming their PLM architectures. At PROSTEP INSIGHT DAYS 2023, they found both from a single source. Around 150 customers and interested parties used the online event to find out about PROSTEP’s comprehensive portfolio of consulting and solutions for designing digital continuity. The Mars Rover served as a guiding thread for navigating through the program.
With OpenPDM 9.5, PROSTEP has launched a new major release of its world-leading platform for PLM migration, integration and collaboration. In addition to improved performance when importing and exporting PLM structures and documents, it offers even better options for connecting cloud-based PLM and ALM solutions, such as PTC Arena and Jira, with each other.
In the middle of last year, a blockchain committee was set up at the VDMA (German Association for Mechanical and Plant Engineering) to intensify the exchange of information on the technology and to investigate possible applications in more detail. The committee is affiliated with the VDMA’s IT department and is open to all member companies interested in blockchain. New use cases are regularly presented at the committee’s meetings. At the last meeting, PROSTEP showed how the technology can be used to prove beyond doubt the authorship of complex CAD models.
Product development often consists of siloed domains where development is distributed through various locations and departments. Regardless of industry (aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, consumer goods, electronics, healthcare, etc.), the product development ecosystem of partners, developers, suppliers, vendors, and more have their own IT systems, procedures, and operations. This presents ongoing challenges for the collaboration of development data across domains. If departments engage an integration framework for system-wide PLM integration, however, companies run more efficiently.
Last year, PROSTEP introduced the first connector that connects the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud to OpenPDM, thus allowing engineering data and ERP data to be linked via the integration platform. PROSTEP has continued to develop the connector and now additional data objects can be exchanged and geometry information can be made available in native or neutral formats.
