​OpenPDM CCenter: A Protected PLM Collaboration Platform for Product Development

​With OpenPDM ​CCenter, ​all PLM project data is secured and synchronized outside your IT Infrastructure.  The data is available to all parties within a protected environment, enabling quick on/off boarding of partners during development ensuring enterprise-wide plm collaboration.

​​PLM Collaboration Platform

Do you need a secure, tailor-made solution to exchange and manage automated PLM data ?

Globally distributed projects involving multiple partners require major coordination of product development data. OpenPDM CCenter, a Collaboration Platform, can simplify your coordination efforts.  It ensures that enterprise-wide synchronized data is available in a secure, protected environment. OpenPDM CCenter will extract PLM, CAD and structured data and then update the data across all domains.

Partners also have access to all key PDM/PLM functions including version, workflow and change management.

Cross-enterprise project work can be securely and efficiently accessed within the OpenPDM CCenter platform.

PLM Collaboration with OpenPDM CCenter

How can OpenPDM CCenter help you with PLM Collaboration?

​OpenPDM CCenter is the self-contained collaboration platform for the secure provision of shared data in distributed development projects and the coordination of cross-company project work. 

OpenPDM CCenter can beused in the below use cases:​

​Joint Venture Collaboration

​​When a manufacturer (OEM) provides the necessary PLM data  but restricts access to the PLM system, you need a proven reliable platform for PLM management. Open PDM CCenter is that platform.

​Consortium Partners

​Two different OEMs will often use the same component but use their own product range. Because each OEM works on their respective PLM systems and only shares limited information, a tool like OpenPDM CCenter will compile all the data on one collaborative platform.

​Mergers and Acquisitions

​When merging two companies, a uniform PLM platform is too complex and expensive to manage effectively. OpenPDM CCenter's collaboration platform for future development acts as a data ​hub for all development parties.

Why use OpenPDM CCenter for PLM Collaboration?

​Engineering Change Management ​for PLM Collaboration

OpenPDM CCenter ​allows you to easily create ​engineering change requests (ECR) from templates. Doing so gives you the ability to describe the changes, identify the work objects (3D models, drawings, etc.). Next, create the engineering change order (ECO) within OpenPDM CCenter. With it you'll be able to realize the change, redline using 3d model data, and batch release documents and parts (new versions of 3d models, drawings, BOMs).  

Further benefits include:

  • ​Notifications with the ability add email notifications
  • ​Task manager with direct access to the project, tasks and documents
  • ​Full synchronization of back-end systems.
