Building the Digital Thread in a Vendor Agnostic Environment

BSchouten - Digital Intersect

About this presentation

Companies across different industries are forced to work with heterogeneous engineering infrastructures, especially in the field of Product Data Management utilizing PDMs and CAD centric management systems. As a result, vendor to vendor integration can be difficult and challenging.

This situation is made more critical when OEM demands that suppliers work with cloned versions of OEM databases causing increases in the number of systems that must be supported.

Learn how the major PLM systems link to a variety of external sources and helps customers accelerate their collaborative development process by enabling all relevant PLM information to be centrally managed, reducing cycle time and driving product innovation.

Whether you are integrating two systems to communicate with each other, decommissioning an old system in order to move to a new system, or creating a multi-system solution, this presentation explores practical ways to make your integration project a success.
