Many manufacturing companies work with PDM/PLM solutions that are not being developed further and/or are no longer able to meet changed functional requirements. They often lack employees who have the skills needed to find an alternative. As a vendor-neutral consulting company that knows the PLM market well, PROSTEP can provide them with the support they need when it comes to selecting an appropriate system.
Last year, PROSTEP introduced the first connector that connects the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud to OpenPDM, thus allowing engineering data and ERP data to be linked via the integration platform. PROSTEP has continued to develop the connector and now additional data objects can be exchanged and geometry information can be made available in native or neutral formats.
New service-oriented business models not only encourage a more sustainable economy but also represent a financial win-win situation for both providers and consumers. Manufacturers who offer their products as a service retain their customers over the long term and gain easier access to operational data that enables them to optimize products while they are in operation and make targeted improvements to the next generation of products. Customers reduce their investment costs or transform them into running costs. They get what the product is supposed to do in the form of a service at a clearly calculable conditions without having to worry about maintenance or replacement.
In order to make production processes more flexible and control them more efficiently, IT systems for manufacturing process planning must be seamlessly integrated into the digital information flows between the PDM/PLM and ERP worlds. This white paper explains how the digital thread can be spun from product development through manufacturing process planning to production.
PROSTEP, the fastest growing PLM solutions provider in all aspects of engineering, is proud to sponsor PIDX USA 2022 on May 17-18, 2022 in Atlanta, GA. This premier event for Design, Engineering, and R&D Leaders explores solutions to solve technology’s most complex challenges and enable better product development and digital transformation.
Premier Platinum Sponsors, PROSTEP, the industry leading Dassault partner for PLM integration, migration, and data exchange for manufacturers in industries such as aerospace and defense, automotive and transportation, shipbuilding, consumer goods, and machinery, lends a wide range of technical expertise through its upcoming presentations at COExperience 2022. The 25+ year event, held yearly by COE, the Community and Experts of Dassault Systemes Solutions sponsored by founding partner, Dassault Systemes, brings together industry leaders to share, connect, and lend best practices for Dassault solutions.
The Putzmeister group of companies has consolidated the CAD and PLM landscape of its French subsidiary PLM2 and integrated it into the group-wide environment support from PROSTEP. The PLM experts at PROSTEP converted the French subsidiary’s Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire data, including the design history, into the NX format and migrated it to the PLM system Teamcenter, which is used throughout the group. This enables Putzmeister to eliminate the additional cost of maintaining two system environments and makes it easier to reuse components.
PROSTEP’s PLM integration platform OpenPDM can be used in hybrid cloud scenarios since version 9.0. In the future, we will also offer it as an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). In close cooperation with Arena, a PTC Business, we are currently developing a cloud-enabled standard integration between PTC’s cloud-native PLM solution Arena, and Atlassian’s ALM application Jira, which is also cloud-native.
