Product and Document Lifecycle Management (PDM/PLM)
From CAD data management to end-to-end PDM/PLM system. We are the right partner for your mid-sized enterprise.
Focus on What Is Important
CAD Data Management
Centralized data management with multi-CAD support.
Your CAD and product data are crucial to your company’s success and worth a lot of money. You shouldn’t leave this data unstructured and lost somewhere in an ordinary file system, but rather store it in a way that is organized and thoroughly structured.
By using CAD data management to centrally store your data
- you always know where a part belongs and how it is used in your company.
- you are always up to date and able to retrieve data in seconds.
- you can eliminate accidental overwrites of CAD data.
- you get to decide who works with what data.
Are you using more than one CAD system?
Accelerate your development by unifying your CAD data management and user experience. PRO.FILE is a Product Data Backbone with multi-CAD capabilities that gives you a common data foundation across all CAD systems. Your mechatronics projects will benefit from the integration of your MCAD and ECAD systems. The CAD data management system supports integration of the PDM system with all major CAD systems such as AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, Creo, Solid Edge, or Solidworks.
Product Data Management (PDM)
Bring together your drawings, documents, and BOMs with a Product Data Backbone. Integrate your ERP system with your PDM system.
Realize the full potential of product data management. Coordinate your product data and documents across system and department lines using PRO.FILE as your Product Data Backbone.
To do so, you need to be able to seamlessly integrate CAD, PDM, ERP systems and Microsoft Office. This enables you to see the relationships between your product data, accompanying documents, and emails, giving you visibility into your processes, satisfied customers, and compliance confidence.
Automatically synchronize your BOMs and project structures by integrating your PDM system with your ERP solution. You will never again have to waste your time manually entering items and are able to provide your purchasing department with valid information to base their orders on.
Document Management / DMStec
One Source of Truth for all your product related data and documents
Technical documents are an inherent part of your products, therefore making it crucial to have a single solution to manage them along with your product data. This creates a lifecycle file that contains all data for a particular product and accompanies it throughout its lifecycle. Modern lifecycle file management is characterized by its ability to give all department’s central access to data by storing it in a single location. You can even customize the views to meet the needs of your different departments. Through all this, the system will never create any duplicates, but rather store every document only once.
Your company builds products and each product has a product structure, doesn’t it therefore make sense to have a document and data management system that emulates your product structures?
DMStec provides an easy way to systematically manage your data by emulating your product structures. This means that you will always have the most current and up-to-date information at your fingertips and meet compliance guidelines, for example those associated with maintenance measures, technical rules, or approvals. What’s more, you can improve collaboration with your customers and operators by providing them with exactly the lifecycle files or machine files they want and need.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
Digital collaboration across the enterprise with product related data and documents
Control and automate your product lifecycle processes
Your company’s success is largely determined by the earning power of your projects and processes. You have to be able to coordinate the way you plan, control, and manage your product data and documents in a single system, in order to maximize the efficiency of your projects and processes.
PRO.CEED provides best practice application packages with the goal of reducing processing times by better coordinating your ongoing processes and projects and avoiding errors when it comes to interrelated process. With the PRO.CEED dashboard, information on the status of a project or process is always just a click away.
Use PRO.CEED to tie your task management to your product data and retrieve all data and documents that are relevant to a process or project from a single source. Reduce processing times by better coordinating your ongoing processes and projects and avoid errors when it comes to interrelated process. And with the PRO.CEED dashboard, information on the status of a project or process is always just a click away.
This probably sounds familiar: You are working on a development project and need to make short-notice changes. Manually coordinating the change process would simply take too long. This is where the task file for the change process comes into play. It helps you overcome this challenge by automating the PLM process for you. The system will automatically alert you of deviations. This allows you to stay on top of the change status at all times. Even better: It gives you the ability to automate parts of the process, such as sending documentation or creating an impact matrix (to determine the impact of the change).
Digitalized PLM is the pathway to digital products
The evolution of PLM in the enterprise
Today, PLM is an integrated discipline that covers the entire product lifecycle and is embedded across the enterprise, from requirements management to the processing of IoT data. It needs to take into account the information provided by the mechatronics disciplines, every step on the way. These product related pieces of information come together to describe the product as a digital information twin, which in turn is used to create the digital twin. Digital threads are established, enabling effective impact and change analysis across the product lifecycle. The digital thread feeds back information from the field to the product engineering processes.
The digital information twin
A lifecycle file that is populated with new information throughout the product lifecycle and contains product data and documents that mirror the technical structure of a product, plant or technical infrastructure is a “digital information twin”. It brings the information stored in the Product Data Backbone into a common context, creating an accurate picture of a piece of machinery or plant.
The secure way to exchange technical documents with partners, customers, and suppliers along the product lifecycle.
The optimization of your PLM processes does not stop at your company’s front door anymore. You need to think across company and system lines and implement seamless processes with partners, customers, and suppliers.
The way you collaborate with your business partners should ideally follow the same rules as your internal PLM processes. Many data exchange platforms fail in meeting the expectations and requirements of mechanical and plant engineering companies.
The virtual project rooms in PROOM allow you to assign and manage user authorizations, allowing you to determine exactly who can view, edit or exchange what. Activity logs are kept for each project room to ensure traceability.
The document exchange itself only takes a few clicks. Any changes to the documents are automatically synchronized – and you can even choose to have them synchronized directly to you desktop or your smartphone.
