Digitalization Makes PLM a Top Priority

PROSTEP Digitalization PLM

Many companies have recognized the leading role of PLM for their digitalization initiatives and are faced with the question of whether their existing system landscape is suitable for the challenges of digital transformation. Before
they decide on a new PLM application, they should first gain clarity about what PLM capabilities they will need in
the future. PROSTEP helps them analyze their PLM maturity level and define a sustainable PLM strategy.

OpenPDM 9.2 with numerous new connectors

OpenPDM 9.2

PROSTEP is increasing the pace of development of its PLM integration platform OpenPDM and will in future deliver a new release every six months. Version 9.2 will be on the roadmap at the beginning of February 2021. In addition to support for the current releases of the PLM systems Windchill, Teamcenter and 3DEXPERIENCE, it offers new connectors to GIT, Jira and to OSLC-enabled systems.

Digital Twin Does Not Come Alone

PROSTEP Digital Twin

Are the digital twin and the results of digital prototyping initiatives the same thing? Is “3D master” just another name for the digital twin? And by the way: What role do investments in a company’s own PLM structure play? We are, after all, talking about figures in the tens of millions. Good questions and even better answers from MARTIN STRIETZEL from PROSTEP AG (Darmstadt).

Clean ERP/PLM Migration with the “Data Washing Machine” at KUKA

KUKA PROSTEP Migration and Integration

In one fell swoop, the robotics and automation specialist KUKA has migrated its SAP installation, introduced Teamcenter as its new PLM system and reorganized the entire engineering-to-order process. Crucial to the project’s success were the soft PLM migration, during which the legacy and new system coexisted for a short period, and the consistent cleansing of the data, which KUKA undertook with the assistance of PROSTEP AG. PROSTEP also accompanied KUKA during the changeover to the current Teamcenter version.

Communication and Collaboration in the Context of Smart Engineering

Communication Collaboration in Smart Engineering - PROSTEP

How must a tool infrastructure be designed if it is to make possible smart engineering that truly satisfies the requirements of Industry 4.0? The author is of the opinion that expanding an existing IT backbone, such as PLM, into a “data hub” will only lead to the desired result if important steps in the direction of openness and agility are taken. A position paper on the prerequisites for an IT infrastructure that make the digital master and digital twin possible.

Soft PLM Migration with Data Cleansing at KUKA

OpenPDM KUKA

Transferring existing incorrect or incomplete data during PLM migration places a heavy burden on the new environment. The robotics and automation specialist KUKA therefore systematically cleansed its inventory of ERP and PLM data at all engineering-to-order (ETO) locations during migration of the SAP data and the simultaneous replacement of the old PDM system with Siemens’ Teamcenter solution. Our PLM integration platform OpenPDM was the driving force behind the data washing machine.

Replace PLM Systems and Improve Data Quality

OpenPDM

The migration of existing data is one of the major challenges faced when replacing PLM systems. It often leads to a delay in the new solution going live or the failure of the entire project. Our PLM integration platform OpenPDM supports different migration strategies – from big-bang migration to incremental migration through to the temporary coexistence of the old and new systems. This allows customers to take a highly flexible approach to PLM migration.
