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.
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.
PROSTEP has expanded the options it offers for integrating systems in heterogeneous PLM landscapes. In addition to the tried-and-tested standard connectors for 3D EXPERIENCE, ARAS Innovator, AutoDesk Vault, EKM, SAP, SIM Manager, Teamcenter and PTC Windchill, the PLM integration and migration solution OpenPDM now also offers connectors to SharePoint, HELiOS and CIM Database PLM. They were developed as part of customer projects.
In the past, engineering projects revolved around ‘document’ and ‘drawing’ centric processes which each contained fragments of information about the whole system. The major downside to this model was that it failed to keep and manage the ‘pieces of information and their connections’. This model also lacked quick access and consistent traceability when project data was examined. It became difficult to assess project completeness, architecture integration, consistency of requirements, change impacts, verification, validation, and end-to-end traceability.
PROSTEP Leads Global Aerospace Company through Teamcenter Migration and Sharepoint Document Management with Plans...
Numerous questions and challenges arise when a PLM migration becomes a company’s strategy to improve their systems. Additionally, increased risks and inexperienced specialists may contribute to longer than expected project times. This is primarily true within the aerospace industry where long product lifecycles and strict traceability requirements are common.
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.
