PROSTEP has been developing standards-based integration solutions for the Siemens Digital Industries Software product family for many years. The two companies have now expanded their long-standing collaboration so that Siemens’ Polarion ALM™ software and Teamcenter® Manufacturing, from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services can be connected to PROSTEP’s integration platform OpenPDM. The aim is to provide customers with even greater support for end-to-end digitalization.

Modules for efficient PLM system selection

PLM Modules

Many manufacturing companies work with PDM/PLM solutions that are not being developed further and/or are no longer able to meet changed functional requirements. They often lack employees who have the skills needed to find an alternative. As a vendor-neutral consulting company that knows the PLM market well, PROSTEP can provide them with the support they need when it comes to selecting an appropriate system.

Too much variance overwhelms customers

Prof. Dr. Georg Rock

It is not just cars that are increasingly being tailored to customers’ wishes but also other products. As a result, the number of variants is increasing. Professor Georg Rock from the Software Engineering department at Trier University of Applied Sciences explains how manufacturers can better get to grips with variants and what challenges they face when managing them. He is a specialist in variant management.

OpenPDM supports new use cases for the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud

OpenPDM 3DExperience Integration

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.

New market study: Digital transformation requires employees with new skills

Mechanical and plant engineering in Germany is in the midst of digital transformation. This means fundamental technological changes, which at the same time require new skills from employees.

New business models need the digital twin


New service-oriented business models not only encourage a more sustainable economy but also represent a financial win-win situation for both providers and consumers. Manufacturers who offer their products as a service retain their customers over the long term and gain easier access to operational data that enables them to optimize products while they are in operation and make targeted improvements to the next generation of products. Customers reduce their investment costs or transform them into running costs. They get what the product is supposed to do in the form of a service at a clearly calculable conditions without having to worry about maintenance or replacement.
