PROSTEP AG has begun delivering the new version 9.3 of its data exchange platform OpenDXM GlobalX. It not only makes it easier for system administrators to do their job but also provides greater security thanks to two-factor authentication. PROSTEP has also expanded its extensive range of PDM/PLM integrations to include an integration to the Active Workspace client from Siemens Digital Industries Software.
Siemens’ Active Workspace client makes it easy for users who don’t work with Teamcenter all the time to access PLM information using all the leading office applications or any web browser. Thanks to integration of client in the OpenDXM GlobalX data exchange platform, they can now also send their CAD and PLM data directly from Active Workspace.
PROSTEP is deepening its long-standing partnership with Siemens Digital Industries Software by developing an OpenPDM connector to Polarion, Siemens’ application lifecycle management (ALM) system. Automotive supplier Kautex will be the first customer to trial the OpenPDM integration platform with the new connector to synchronize ALM data with its development partners.
PROSTEP began delivering the new version 9.3 of OpenDXM GlobalX to maintenance customers via the GlobalX portal at the end of November. The data exchange platform’s graphical web interface, which has been very well received by users, now also includes all system administration functions. What is new for users is that they can now create their own serial reports in the new web interface.
Companies need flexibly adaptable IT system landscapes if they are to respond more quickly to technological innovations, new market trends and unexpected customer requirements. One possible option is to use PLM from the cloud. In a new white paper, PROSTEP explores the drivers of cloud PLM and what companies should bear in mind on their way to the cloud.
Many companies are considering moving all or part of their PLM solutions to the cloud in order to respond more quickly to technological innovations, new market trends and unexpected customer requirements. But not all clouds are the same. This white paper explains the key drivers for cloud PLM, the different manifestations of cloud solutions, and their potential and weaknesses. It also shows how companies should proceed when defining their cloud PLM strategy.
Nowadays, manufacturing industry uses highly complex IT systems to develop equally highly complex products that include an increasing number of electronic and software components. However, the attempt to cast out the devil of complexity with complex PLM solutions is increasingly being stretched to the limit. If users are to get to grips with this complexity, they need applications that are as innovative as they are easy to use.

Downstream processes in shipbuilding require early and bidirectional integration between the PDM and ERP systems used in product development, production planning and production. This was one of the key messages of the third episode of our PROSTEP SHIPBUILDING PLM INSIGHTS webinar series, in which we presented different PDM-ERP integration scenarios to participants.
