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.
In the middle of last year, a blockchain committee was set up at the VDMA (German Association for Mechanical and Plant Engineering) to intensify the exchange of information on the technology and to investigate possible applications in more detail. The committee is affiliated with the VDMA’s IT department and is open to all member companies interested in blockchain. New use cases are regularly presented at the committee’s meetings. At the last meeting, PROSTEP showed how the technology can be used to prove beyond doubt the authorship of complex CAD models.

PROSTEP AG is consolidating the activities carried out by its various offices in the Stuttgart area in a new office in Böblingen. The main reasons for choosing the new, state-of-the-art business premises were its attractive location, good transport links, short distances to the carmaker Mercedes-Benz and its proximity to PROSTEP’s subsidiary BHC, which is located in the same building.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, PROSTEP continued to grow and hire additional staff during the course of the last business year. We expect an even stronger surge in growth in 2022. We are urgently looking for new employees and partners who can help us turn our ambitious plans for growth into action and provide us with support in implementation projects.
How can automated driving systems be reliably tested and safely put on the road? This is the subject of the project “Verification & Validation Methods” (VVM), funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection. At the mid-term event on March 15 and 16 participants will present initial results. Project partner PROSTEP will also be represented at the online event with two presentations. The PROSTEP speakers will present the demonstrator of a traceability solution (TRACY) that supports the verification and validation process. It is developed as part of the project and is freely available to all participants for the duration of the event.
How do manufacturers of software-driven products strike a balance between PLM and ALM? This question was examined in a joint study conducted by PROSTEP and PROSTEP’s subsidiary BHC for which companies from a number of different industries were surveyed. A key finding of the study is that the level of integration between product and application lifecycle management is currently insufficient to ensure end-to-end digitalization and traceability.
