A Guide to PLM ERP Integration and Case Study

How do you ensure a successful PLM ERP Integration?

Organizations rely on numerous systems for success. PLM might be your main system, but it isn’t the only system critical to your engineering value chain. Because your data spans numerous systems, you need a solid solution for synchronization across all domains. The “plug and play” method of connecting systems may be well known, but in reality it is far from effective. As products become increasingly complex, integrations become increasingly difficult. Your organization may have completely customized PLM, in which case you will need to integrate numerous components.

A Blueprint for a Successful PLM Migration

Do you have the right strategy and tools for your PLM Migration?

Since the economy of today spans the globe, you must work harder to stay ahead of your competition. Your product development processes need to be lean, and you need to bring the right people and processes together. If you’re working on a legacy PLM, chances are your data is siloed, spanning different disciplines. This makes collaboration difficult. For instance, creating a comprehensive bill-of-materials (BOM) from information across different disciplines isn’t easy. And you’ve decided a new PLM will remove these challenges. Your next step is the PLM migration.

CENIT and PROSTEP Announce Strategic Cooperation for PLM Integration, PLM Migration and Collaboration

The PLM consulting and software companies CENIT and PROSTEP are bundling their expertise and products in the fields of system integration, system migration, process automation, and collaboration with the aim of providing their customers with even more powerful solutions. CENIT is contributing its decades of experience with the software platforms from Dassault Systèmes and SAP to the strategic cooperation.

PROSTEP develops NAPA to AVEVA marine interface

PROSTEP NAPA Steel and AVEVA Marine Hul Interface

​An integration platform for napa steel and aveva marine hull

​The end-to-end use of digital information in the shipbuilding industry demands the integration of a large number of different systems, which are used for different tasks and domains. PROSTEP offers a standards-based integration platform for this purpose that facilitates fast connection of all the relevant IT systems. In the future, it will also support the exchange of data between NAPA Steel and AVEVA Marine Hull.

PROSTEP Helps Meyer Group to Build Cruise Ships on a Common Platform

PROSTEP Meyer Group

​Cruise ships are typically not designed from scratch, but so far there is no systematic reuse of existing design. Now Finish shipyard Meyer Turku starts to create the first of two ships using a common platform developed together with German counterpart Meyer Werft. German PLM specialist PROSTEP helps Meyer Turku to overcome the challenge of working with different CAD tools in hull design and outfitting.

OSLC Integration Presented at NIST 2018

PROSTEP, the leading PLM integration specialist in the area of product data integration, today announces their presentation at this year’s NIST – Model-Based Enterprise Summit 2018. This summit will be held at the NIST Campus in Gaithersburg, MD on April 2-5, 2018. The PROSTEP guest speaker is Brian Schouten, Director of Technical Presales at PROSTEP INC.

Ship classification using 3D PDF technology from PROSTEP

Ship classification (class approval) normally involves the exchange of numerous large-format drawings between a shipyard and a classification society. In addition to this, Meyer Werft in Papenburg will for the first time also be providing the classification company DNV GL with 3D models of a cruise ship. The digital class approval process is based on PROSTEP’s 3D PDF technology.

3D PDF Technical Data Package (TDP)

PROSTEP Technical Data Package

Adobe and PROSTEP have expanded their long-standing cooperation in the field of 3D PDF technology in order to provide companies with optimum support when it comes to establishing drawingless processes in accordance with the VDA guideline 4953-2 or MIL-STD-31000. Under the new agreement PROSTEP is now also able to offer customers the option of creating PDF-based technical data packages (TDP) containing any kind of 3D representations. The licensed functionality for flattening 3D models and generating PDF/A-3-compliant containers are part of a separate TDP module that expands PROSTEP’s PDF Generator 3D. The new module is now available.

Improve Your PLM/CAD Data Migration Strategy

PLM/CAD Data Migration is difficult and complex.

However, you can increase your chances of success and ensure a smoother, less expensive process by implementing a sound migration strategy. Whether you plan to transfer legacy data to modern systems or migrate to a new system to adapt to the ever-changing IT landscape, you must strategize accordingly.

Multi-CAD is the Key to Shaping our Future CAD/PLM Environment – An Interview with Dr. Jan Meyer

PROSTEP Meyer Group

The Meyer Group, one of the world’s leading builders of cruise ships, has adopted the platform concept to develop and build ships whose appearances differ, but which share a common technical basis. PROSTEP’s native CAD conversion was a decisive factor in the reuse of design data from the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg at Meyer’s Turku shipyard in Finland. Managing Director Dr. Jan Meyer explains the challenges that accompany this innovative approach to shipbuilding.
