How does the engineering change request from ARENA PLM affect other systems within product development? Watch the demo video outlining ARENA PLM with SAP ERP integration.
At this year's Schiff&Hafen Maritim 4.0 conference, PROSTEP's shipbuilding experts outlined the challenges faced when it comes to end-to-end digitalization in the maritime supply chain and the benefits of a digital vessel twin. The choice of topic for their presentation was a good one, as the event is primarily attended by shipping experts who are interested in optimizing their working fleet.
The engineering change notice communicates what approved changes need to be made to a product. The ECN contains a detailed description of the changes and can be a manual or automated process depending on your company’s workflow. Unfortunately, regardless of the process method, the ECN can be cumbersome and often involves laborious steps. Read how 3D PDFs can support your cross-enterprise engineering change/release processes.
How does 3D PDF Converter allow you to create 3D PDFs? The biggest challenge manufacturer's face today is the ability to efficiently share CAD data (design intent) across the enterprise. It's estimated that 90% of CAD is consumed outside of design departments. Numerous downstream departments and users must access CAD, include sales, customers, suppliers, service departments, engineering sub-contractors and manufacturing assemblies.
Exporting and converting CAD data has always been a complex and expensive process… but is there an easier way to share data? These days, if you know where to look, CAD conversion can be both efficient and economical. Of the available conversion software on the market today, PROSTEP’s conversion solutions are the least expensive and most advantageous. PROSTEP software converts CAD data from any authoring system (AutoCAD, Creo Parametric, CATIA, Solidworks, etc.) into a lightweight, shareable 3D PDF file.
Adobe and PROSTEP have expanded their long-standing cooperation in the field of 3D PDF technology in order to provide companies with optimum support when it comes to establishing drawingless processes in accordance with the VDA guideline 4953-2 or MIL-STD-31000. Under the new agreement PROSTEP is now also able to offer customers the option of creating PDF-based technical data packages (TDP) containing any kind of 3D representations. The licensed functionality for flattening 3D models and generating PDF/A-3-compliant containers are part of a separate TDP module that expands PROSTEP's PDF Generator 3D. The new module is now available.
PROSTEP INC and parent company PROSTEP AG are Platinum sponsors at this year’s annual COE event, which will be held April 26 through 29, 2020 in Miami, FL. COE (Community of Experts of Dassault Systemes Solutions) brings together users of Dassault Systemes software and provides unprecedented access to education, training, networking, product influence opportunities and best practices.
Ship classification (class approval) normally involves the exchange of numerous large-format drawings between a shipyard and a classification society. In addition to this, Meyer Werft in Papenburg will for the first time also be providing the classification company DNV GL with 3D models of a cruise ship. The digital class approval process is based on PROSTEP's 3D PDF technology.
PROSTEP INC is a Deluxe Sponsor at SIEMENS Realize Live Show in Detroit, MI this June 10-13, 2019
Developing smart products doesn't just require smart development tools, it also needs smart users who are capable of exploiting the intelligence offered by these tools and thus able to create smart product models. Otherwise, the digital twin will remain some kind of digital Frankenstein. Companies therefore need to sharpen their focus on design methodology.
