Capability-Based Consulting for Sustainable PLM Architecture

PROSTEP White Paper - Capability Based Consulting for Sustainable PLM Architecture

There is a great deal of uncertainty in industry when it comes to the future viability of their current PLM infrastructures. Companies that recognize the importance of PLM for the digitalization of their business processes in particular are wondering whether they and their existing PLM solutions are in a position to cope with the digital transformation. In order to be able to respond flexibly to new business requirements, they need adaptable modular PLM architectures that can easily be integrated in their existing IT landscapes and which can quickly be expanded to include additional modules as required. At the same time, these architectures must support new concepts for data linking to ensure the traceability of product data across all the architecture components.

Harmonizing product, process and service

Advanced Systems Engineering

It is necessary to take a holistic view of the development, production and operation of complex product-service systems. The Fraunhofer IAO is developing technologies and methods to do this as part of the strategic research program Advanced Systems Engineering (ASE). The director of the institute, Professor Oliver Riedel, describes the scope of the approach and the challenges posed by implementation.

MEYER Group and PROSTEP evaluate standard PLM capabilities for the shipbuilding industry

Meyer Group and PROSTEP

The MEYER Group is capable of supporting most of the drawing management related processes with ENOVIA’s standard functionalities. This is the most important finding of a comprehensive proof of concept (PoC) that PROSTEP’s shipbuilding experts carried out for the shipyard. MEYER intends to reduce the time and effort required for customization and updates by using a more standardized PLM solution.

PROSTEP makes PDM development at Daimler more agile

PROSTEP Supports Daimler

PROSTEP has been providing car manufacturer Daimler with support for the maintenance and further development of its central PDM system for several years. The established project structures, which had evolved over time, reduced transparency and made coordination more difficult. To help address this issue, PROSTEP and Daimler introduced an integrative, agile approach based on the Scaled Agile Framework.

MEYER Turku checks use of DELMIA for work planning

OpenPDM Ship Integration

Finnish shipyard MEYER Turku, part of MEYER Group and one of the world’s leading builder of cruise ships, ferries and special ships, plans for the future of shipbuilding. In a Proof of Concept (PoC) led by PROSTEP, and in cooperation with TECHNIA the shipyard examined the advantages of model-based, visually supported work planning using DELMIA software in the production process.

PROSTEP: Integrating the future begins with innovation

PROSTEP Integration

Our claim “Integrate the Future” means developing innovative products and services for you. Sponsored projects provide us with important ideas for this. In recent years, we have significantly increased the extent of our research activities. Four innovation projects are currently running simultaneously: V&V Methods, SET Level, ProProS and DigiTwin. In October, we applied for funding for two new projects (ImPaKT and HoliYard).

OpenPDM 9.2 with numerous new connectors

OpenPDM 9.2

PROSTEP is increasing the pace of development of its PLM integration platform OpenPDM and will in future deliver a new release every six months. Version 9.2 will be on the roadmap at the beginning of February 2021. In addition to support for the current releases of the PLM systems Windchill, Teamcenter and 3DEXPERIENCE, it offers new connectors to GIT, Jira and to OSLC-enabled systems.

Digital Twin Does Not Come Alone

PROSTEP Digital Twin

Are the digital twin and the results of digital prototyping initiatives the same thing? Is “3D master” just another name for the digital twin? And by the way: What role do investments in a company’s own PLM structure play? We are, after all, talking about figures in the tens of millions. Good questions and even better answers from MARTIN STRIETZEL from PROSTEP AG (Darmstadt).
