Integrate Product Data ​throughout ​Your Critical Busines Systems with ​PLM Integration

Discover the platform that links your product data between systems (ALM, PLM, SDM, ERP, Legacy). OpenPDM Integrate synchronizes PLM data enterprise-wide for faster, smarter product development.

PLM Integration

​How do you efficiently implement the digital integration of PLM, ALM, MES, ERP and other legacy systems?

Digital integration is essential ​in the manufacturing technology world.

Product development data is often managed throughout multiple data silos. As a result, data in one system cannot easily be communicated or 'seen' in other systems, leading to data inefficiencies and inconsistencies throughout product development.

Integrating product data is a challenge for even the most proficient company. Full centralization 'locks' you in and prevents future viability of your PLM. Productivity suffers when an end-user is limited to only one tool, which usually requires cumbersome manual integrations. ​

Point-to-point integrations do not scale properly and eventually leave you with budget constraints and limited ability to respond to change.

​When data is duplicated throughout multiple systems, compatibility issues and un​synchronized processing time will most likely occur.

What does this mean for your company? Incompatible, unsynchronized data leads to inconsistencies in product development and the rework of incorrectly manufactured parts. This additional work means that you will spend more money, more time and more resources on an integration.

As PLM vendors work to keep your data siloed in their system, how can you work efficiently when your data is stored elsewhere: in other business units, other departments - perhaps even other countries?

​Smart connected products and blockchain technology have revolutionized product development. These tools provide first rate security and real time data access, but they also add a level of data ​management to your product development processes.

PLM Integration with OpenPDM Integrate

OpenPDM Integrate Ensures Data Accuracy and Synchronization Between Systems

OpenPDM Integrate

Your data must be accurate, up-to-date and synchronized regardless of how many systems it traverses. OpenPDM Integrate provides the end-to-end PLM processes you need to connect, monitor and control your PLM data.

Configurable interfaces allow for the most complex integration and the import and export of CAD structures and PLM data.

OpenPDM Integrate has limitless scalability. PROSTEP's technological partnerships with leading PLM vendors such as Dassault, SIEMENS, PTC, IBM, SAP and others guarantee reliability when you integrate with today's leading PLM platforms.

Is OpenPDM Integrate for You?

OpenPDM INTEGRATE is intended for companies that work with multiple PLM systems at different locations or in different departments, or companies that want to connect a PLM backbone to discipline-specific team data management (TDM) systems. The solution can be used to link or transfer all PLM-relevant information.

The solution allows data (including CAD data), documents, versions and structures from different data sources to be synchronized, in either a synchronous or asynchronous process. A higher-level workflow can be set up to control the processes, which means that cross-system change processes can also be controlled automatically.

The process flows can easily be adapted to meet customers' needs and monitored using a browser-based user interface. OpenPDM INTEGRATE provides configurable interfaces to a large number of PLM, ERP and simulation data management systems that allow the import and export of CAD structures as well as PLM data in formats like ASCII, STEP and XML. They can, of course, also be used to integrate established applications that have evolved over time in your business processes.

​6 Reasons Why You Would Use OpenPDM Integrate

1. End-to-End PLM Processes

OpenPDM Integrate allows your CAD and PLM data to flow across system boundaries. Up-to-date data from other disciplines within the company is available to different specialist departments departments. As a result, OpenPDM Integrate ensures your product development processes have the most up-to-date accurate information for efficient product manufacturing.

2. Limitless Scalability

OpenPDM Integrate is ideal for PLM integration of any size.  You can easily configure and adapt OpenPDM Integrate to your company-specific business processes in a flexible manner.  

3. Tracability

OpenPDM Integrates allows you to control and monitor your processes that are traced at all times.  Further, you can easily create reports of all process flows.

4. Low Administrative Overhead

The stability and reliability of the software ensure problem-free operation of the applications and reduce the time and effort required for system administration. The use of the official interfaces to the connected systems also guarantees good update capability with little effort on your part.

5. Fast ROI (return on investment).

Unlike project-specific solutions, OpenPDM INTEGRATE has pre-installed business logic. This ensures a short implementation phase and fast productive use of the solution.

​6. Maximum Investment Protection

​The neutral data model makes it easy to expand the system and ensures that it continues to function properly even after updates. At the same time, the ongoing maintenance and continued development of the software provide maximum protection of your investment.
