Companies in the automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, shipbuilding and other industries must be able to seamlessly trace data communications with customers and suppliers while at the same time protecting their intellectual property during data transfer. However, they often shy away from the effort involved in installing and maintaining a suitable managed file transfer (MFT) solution. PROSTEP is now making its OpenDXM GlobalX data exchange platform available in a highly secure cloud environment to facilitate secure data exchange for the largest possible number of users.
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.
As part of Aras’s 20th Anniversary, Aras has selected PROSTEP INC to be part of ACE2020, an event highlighting new and innovative ways to interact with the Aras integration platform. Aras ACE2020 will be held March 16-18, 2020 in Boston, MA.
Modern shipbuilding - starting with shipbuilding prefabrication - is a logistical challenge. In order to maintain an overview right from the start and to be able to intervene on a daily basis, for example in the event of staff shortages, the Bremen-based Fr. Lürssen shipyard, the Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University and PROSTEP AG have launched the ProProS research project.
The shipbuilding experts at PROSTEP had a "hot" autumn with a wealth of events. Our new flagship product OpenPDM SHIP was always with us. The integration platform, which connects special applications for shipbuilding with classic mechanical CAD applications and common PDM/PLM and ERP systems via standardized connectors, attracted attention everywhere.
An interview with M. Kurt Saygin PROSTEP is a supporting member of Engineers Without Borders Germany (Ingenieure ohne Grenzen e.V. (IOG)). In an interview for the PROSTEP newsletter, M. Kurt Saygin, chairman of the organization's board, discussed the objectives and activities of the non-profit aid organization, which in recent years has implemented infrastructure projects in 30 countries together with local partners. The staff, which is mainly made up of volunteers, provides engineering-specific support that helps people help themselves. In development alliances, all participants face the challenge of efficiently coordinating their collaboration across various CAx and PLM systems. CONTACT Software and PROSTEP AG are therefore pooling their skills in the areas of IT, processes and methods in order to offer suitable solutions for different collaboration scenarios
Ensuring your CAD Data Exchange with your customers, suppliers and vendors is essential in your manufacturing processes. Are you doing this correctly?
Many companies are considering moving their PLM and ERP systems or parts of them to the cloud. To pave the way for them into the clouds, PROSTEP is enabling the use of its world's leading integration platform OpenPDM in hybrid cloud scenarios through a modular architecture and the use of microservices.
Last year, Professor Dr. Jens C. Göbel took over as successor to Professor Martin Eigner as the head of the Institute for Virtual Product Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern. He has already been concerned with PLM-related topics for many years, both at research level and with regard to industrial applications. In an interview for the PROSTEP Newsletter, he explained what the future of PLM will look like.
Monolithic system architectures with static interfaces do not do justice to the dynamics in the development of smart networked products. PROSTEP has therefore developed a new integration approach that makes it possible to directly link the data of the various disciplines and domains instead of replicating them in a PLM cockpit. OpenCLM makes the status of interdisciplinary development projects easier to understand.
