OpenDXM Manages Data Exchange at MIELE


The automation of data transfer accelerates collaboration not only in the automotive industry but in other industries too. Renowned manufacturers of white goods like Miele have been using OpenDXM software from Prostep for almost 15 years to provide suppliers all over the world with CAD data in the right formats faster and log these exchange processes. With the switch to the Windows-based client-server solution, performance has improved further.

Data Exchange on the Fast Track

PROSTEP - Data Exchange

Have you ever tried sending 34
gigabytes of data over the Internet? It doesn‘t present a problem with OpenDXM GlobalX. The automotive manufacturer Porsche is using the Web-based data exchange platform from PROSTEP to exchange large volumes of data with its suppliers quickly, reliably and securely. It is not only the product developers that are using the solution, but also their colleagues from Production, Sales and other departments. And, of course, the partners with whom they are exchanging data.

OSRAM Continental relies on data exchange from the cloud

Setting up an IT landscape from scratch is a challenge, but at the same time it offers an opportunity to do things completely differently. OSRAM Continental took advantage of this opportunity and moved its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud. The two-year-old joint venture uses PROSTEP’s cloud-based data exchange service to exchange product data with customers and suppliers.

No Digital Twin without Digital Thread

Digital Twins offer the possibility to simulate the behavior of physical assets, to monitor them during operation and to continuously improve them. The data and models from planning and development form the context in which the operating data can be interpreted correctly. Putting them together from the wealth of available information is an essential prerequisite for the use of digital twin applications.

Now that the SAMPL project has been successfully completed, PROSTEP has made the blockchain-based solution for the forgery-proof exchange of 3D print data part of its consulting portfolio. In an online discussion called TechTALK, our experts informed customers and interested parties about the blockchain and possible use cases in the PLM environment.

There’s digitalization – and then there’s digitalization

Karsten Theis - PROSTEP AG

By Karsten Theis

In the last newsletter, I wrote “To stand still is no option for us” with reference to the difficulties facing the management of companies in an age of global uncertainties. And then came the lockdown and suddenly (almost) everything ground to a halt. Admittedly, the coronavirus pandemic was not entirely unforeseeable, but we were unprepared for the scale with which it hit us. I do, however, feel that one point I made has been confirmed: The situation can only be mastered using an agile approach. And with an even greater level of digitalization, I would now add.

Maximum flexibility when organizing data exchange

OpenDXM GlobalX Saas

OpenDXM GlobalX from the cloud is particularly suitable for companies that want to use a secure IT infrastructure for data exchange without any need to implement and operate their own IT team. Cloud deployment makes it possible for the data exchange platform to go live quickly at a reasonable and clearly calculable cost. Both the application itself and the infrastructure meet all the requirements placed on them by customer and supplier contracts in terms of certification according to ISO 27001, GDPR compliance, etc.
