Powerful Connectors

OpenPDM’s powerful connectors makes it possible to implement the digital thread in your company giving users the ability to work with always up-to-date information across their systems.

Becuase of OpenPDM’s microservices architecture, separation of mapping engine and connectors, means you get information mapped from the source system to your target system with no data loss. OpenPDM supports read/write functions for all objects, attributes, relations, and files connected in the systems.

Supported operations include:

  • Query objects
  • Create/Read/Update/Delete Business objects
  • Create/Read/Update/Delete Relationships
  • Check-In / Check-Out
  • Login / Logout from backend
  • Transactions
  • Execute Transitions (change lifecycle states)
  • Execute Workflows
  • Modify Ownership/Security/Projects, etc.
  • Download / Upload / Delete Files
  • Bulk operational methods

OpenPDM Architecture

Architecture: OpenPDM supports a micro service oriented architecture where every service can run standalone or in combination with one another. These services can be integrated in any process or engine.

Export/Import Worker: OpenPDM logic is part of the connector service and allows a boost in performance by reducing HTTP calls and direct access to backend specific API.

Mapping: OpenPDM can work standalone or integrated into any other service, supporting XML, Java, and Groovy mapping variants. New variants can easily be integrated.

OpenPDM has a distributed architecture based on microservices utilizing the OpenPDM Unified Component Architecture. Versioned PLM data (metadata, structures, and files) are handled by RESTful interfaces. Our business process engine uses the popular BPMN solution Camunda and is specialized to handle semantical data.

OpenPDM Connect

OpenPDM Connect

Do you need to coordinate complex product structures, individual parts, BOMs and documents and metadata between two systems? OpenPDM Connect is an industry standard, highly reliable method to connect two digital PLM systems when managing complex product development processes. When you need a solution to synchronize individual parts, BOMs, documents and complex product structures with version and metadata status, OpenPDM Connect is the answer. Whatever your specific use case, OpenPDM Connect allows you to connect two PLM systems, enabling:

  • integration of business processes
  • integrity of data and high reliability
  • enterprise-wide consistent and up-to-date data
  • flexibility and quick implementation

OpenPDM Migrate

OpenPDM Migrate

If you’re ready to move forward with a data migration, OpenPDM Migrate is the tool you need irrespective of your chosen migration methodology (staged, incremental, etc.).

OpenPDM MIGRATE enables you to organize the migration of existing PLM data from an old system to a new system regardless of whether you prefer a more gentle transition, with the temporary coexistence of the old and new systems, or want to switch systems in one fell swoop.

OpenPDM MIGRATE not only migrates individual parts, BOMs and documents, but also complex product structures to the new PLM system. The solution allows PLM data from multiple systems and data sources to be consolidated.

Further, bidirectional synchronization of the data allows migration to be performed in small steps and delta information to be synchronized if, after an initial data loading process, the older system continues to be used.

OpenPDM Collaborate

OpenPDM Collaborate

OpenPDM Collaborate gives you the ability to customize your provisioning and synchronization of PLM and CAD data. This solution gives you the ability to export PLM and CAD data from backend systems enabling data synchronization at regular intervals. With the ability to adapt to different configuration scenarios, seamless integration of data occurs in PLM systems used by partners. OpenPDM Collaborate gives you:

  • “out-of-the-box” PLM collabration
  • maximum flexibility
  • support for partner-specific data models
  • optimum protection of CAD dand PLM data transfer
  • maximum investment protection

OpenPDM CCenter

OpenPDM CCenter

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.

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.
