Automated Driving

Professor Frank Köster is the founding director of the Institute for AI Safety and Security at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and one of the coordinators of the joint SET Level project, which focuses on safety in the context of automated driving. In this interview, he explains the importance of simulation and artificial intelligence for the development of automated vehicles.

A Reference Model for Developing Digital Twins

Digital twin WP

Digital transformation refers to the systematic use of digital technologies to increase operational efficiency and/or develop new, data-driven business models. An important lever for increasing added value is the digital twin. A joint white paper drawn up by 3DSE and PROSTEP describes what a forward-looking digital twin concept might look like.

Standard Integrations Beyond the PLM World

OpenPDM and OSLC

OpenPDM is far more than just the leading PLM integration platform. Our standard connectors connect the PDM/PLM world to all the IT worlds relevant to product development, be it ERP, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). OpenPDM not only makes it possible for us to synchronize data between the connected systems but also implement new concepts for cross-system data linking.
When strong partnerships occur, the ability to bring the best strengths and talents from both companies emerge to deliver more impactful, comprehensive, and complementary software solutions to their user base.

Clean ERP/PLM migration with the “data washing machine”


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.
