Integration 4.0 means linking, not replicating, data

"Integrate the Future" is PROSTEP's maxim, to which we remain committed. We have been involved with product data integration for over 25 years and during this time we have provided numerous big-name companies with advice and support when designing their integration-compatible PLM landscapes. Based on this experience, we have come to the conclusion that the current challenges posed by the digital transformation require a new approach to integration: linking data, not replicating it, is the order of the day.

PROSTEP makes the OpenPDM architecture cloud-ready

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.

Theegarten-Pactec plans to speed up development with PLM

Theegarten-Pactec is the world’s leading manufacturer of continuous-motion packaging machines for confectionery, food and non-food products. In order to secure its market position, the Dresden-based company has decided to use PLM to speed up the development of new machines and its order-oriented design work. PROSTEP will be advising the company on the optimization of its PLM processes, requirements analysis and selection of the system.
Jens Christian Göbel

PLM made possible through the networking of products

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.

OpenCLM Provides Transparency in the Product Development Process

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.
Digital Twin PROSTEP

Digital Twin and Digital Consistency White Paper

PROSTEP has published a white paper covering a number of important aspects to consider when implementing a Digital Twin. These include what information should be included in these twins, how they can be structured, and what role cloud and platforms play for Digital Twin applications. The white paper underlines the importance of digital consistency.
OpenPDM Ship

PROSTEP Presents Integration Platform for Shipbuilding

Recently, PROSTEP officially launched OpenPDM SHIP, an integration platform optimized specifically for the maritime industry. It connects shipbuilding-specific development systems via standardized connectors with common PDM/PLM and ERP systems as well as with mechanical CAD applications, thus creating the prerequisite for end-to-end digital processes in shipbuilding and shipping.
PROSTEP PLM Migration Process Roadmap

What if Your CAD Data Migration Were Flawless?

The experiences of Walterscheid Powertrain and SONACA show that with the right strategy and careful planning, a CAD data migration doesn’t have to be difficult.
CAD Conversion to 3D PDF - PROSTEP_US-Featured Image

Cut the Cost of CAD Conversion

Exporting and converting CAD data has always been a complex and expensive process… but is there an easier way to share data? These days, if you know where to look, CAD conversion can be both efficient and economical. Of the available conversion software on the market today, PROSTEP’s conversion solutions are the least expensive and most advantageous. PROSTEP software converts CAD data from any authoring system (AutoCAD, Creo Parametric, CATIA, Solidworks, etc.) into a lightweight, shareable 3D PDF file.
ECN - 3D PDF - PROSTEP_US-Featured Image

Engineering Change Notice with 3D PDF

The engineering change notice communicates what approved changes need to be made to a product. The ECN contains a detailed description of the changes and can be a manual or automated process depending on your company’s workflow. Unfortunately, regardless of the process method, the ECN can be cumbersome and often involves laborious steps. Read how 3D PDFs can support your cross-enterprise engineering change/release processes.
