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.

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.
What is an ECO - engineering change order? ECO Manufacturing needs an effective Engineering Change Order process for your organization. Here's how to do it.
Utilizing more than 15,000 users with data volume over 5 terabytes, SMARAGD is Daimler AG’s central PDM backbone PROSTEP has recently been tasked with furthering functional development along with the development of the new SMARAGD architecture thus making it ready for a future of digitalization and smart engineering.
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.
Smart manufacturing starts with smart product engineering and design. By the year 2020, multiple studies have suggested the world’s population will have over 50 billion connected devices. Understanding the Internet of Things (IoT) is complex but vital to the changing landscape of technology within engineering and design. Simply put, IoT is the massive connection of data from internet-ready products. This includes everything from everyday household products such as thermostats and lamps, to manufacturing machines in the automotive, aerospace, and a multitude of other business sectors. Understanding the connectivity of devices between people and people, people and things, and things and things will drive added value for companies in the manufacturing engineering industries. As a result, companies learn about not only the gaps in efficiencies in product manufacturing, but also the customer experience and how customers relate and use the product.
PROSTEP, one of the leading PLM consulting and software houses and PLM vendor PTC are stepping up their collaboration involving the integration of the digital and physical product worlds. PROSTEP has developed three preconfigured OpenPDM CONNECT solutions for connecting PTC's IoT platform ThingWorx to the PLM systems 3D EXPERIENCE, Teamcenter and SAP PLM on the basis of its OpenPDM technology. The solutions enable digital product information to be linked with the operating data of the real product, which converge on the IoT platform. PROSTEP will also support the new ThingWorx Orchestration integration framework, which is slated for launch at the end of the year together with ThingWorx Release 8.4.
