Leading SIEMENS systems integration partners, PROSTEP, is now a PLATINUM sponsor at this year’s SIEMENS Realize Live 2021 event. As a longtime SIEMENS partner, PROSTEP gives SIEMENS users the engineering products and services to successfully increase productivity, reduce costs, and provide end-to-end traceability with an integrated engineering framework, OpenPDM. OpenPDM connectors extend SIEMENS’ offerings giving users the ability to connect systems of siloed groups more easily. As a result, this enables enhanced collaboration and speeds the workflow of information by providing the latest product information to all users.
Before automated vehicles are allowed to take to the road, their safety must be tested using numerous simulations as not all driving situations can be tested on real roads. In the joint SET Level project, PROSTEP is working together with 19 partners from industry and academia on developing an appropriate simulation technology for this purpose.
Companies in the manufacturing industry face the challenge of responding flexibly to new market and customer requirements. Their IT organizations and PLM landscapes must also meet this challenge. More and more companies are therefore adopting agile approaches and need development partners with the relevant expertise.
This white paper describes how PROSTEP supports them in the use of agile methods in the PLM environment.
Leading ARAS systems integration partners, PROSTEP, is now a PLATINUM sponsor at this year’s ARAS ACE2021 event. As a longtime ARAS partner, PROSTEP gives ARAS users the engineering products and services to successfully increase productivity, reduce costs, and provide end-to-end traceability with an integrated engineering framework, OpenPDM. OpenPDM connectors extend ARAS’ offerings giving users the ability to connect systems of siloed groups more easily.

What news to start the year with: according to the Bloomberg Index, Germany was the most innovative country in the world in 2020. But are we also the first when it comes to using innovations? Looking around, I unfortunately have the impression: No. While others see new technologies as a panacea, we prefer to deal with their risks and side effects. The question is whether Corona will change anything. It was raised by the FAZ in an article with the nice title “Fortschritt wider Willen” (progress against one’s will), which I recommend you to read.
The HARTING Technology Group, one of the world’s leading suppliers of connection technology, made use of PROSTEP’s PLM strategy consulting services last year. In this interview, Dr. Kurt D. Bettenhausen, member of the board responsible for New Technologies and Development at HARTING, discusses the company’s digitalization strategy and the need for action in product development.
A few weeks ago, Alstom completed the takeover of Bombardier’s railway division. However, the two companies already worked closely together beforehand on the development and production of the new generation of metros for the Paris transport authority. The former Bombardier sites use the OpenPDM integration platform to import the engineering data for production and assembly into their PLM environment.
Although there is already a large number of projects involving digital twins under way in the maritime industry, there is no common industry-wide understanding of what a digital twin is and no uniform approach to implementation. These are the results of a survey on the digital twin conducted by PROSTEP among shipyards, operators, suppliers and classification societies.
Integrating data exchange into the users’ working environment is the best way to ensure that they comply with data security and know-how protection rules. That’s why automotive supplier HBPO has integrated the OpenDXM GlobalX data exchange platform into SAP ECTR. In the future, it will be available not only for product developers, but also for other departments.
The first PROSTEP CONSULTING DAY will be held 15 April 2021 – a date to enter in your calendar. With our interactive online event, we want to show customers and interested parties from manufacturing industry the strategic concepts we use to help them shape digitalization so that they are better prepared to meet the challenges posed by rapid change.
