Working With PRO.FILE
PRO.FILE makes your work easier and creates new opportunities.

Modern product development cycles are becoming ever shorter. Being able to securely store your product data and to swiftly and accurately retrieve your documents will help you keep pace.

PRO.FILE is a document management system that provides a Product Data Backbone for all data and documents that belong to a particular product. Your product knowledge is securely held in the digital archives of the PDM system. The deliverables of your mechanics, electronic engineering, electronics and software teams are managed in one integrated system that applies the same rules to all of them. The variant creation process is mostly automated and so is the provision of documents to your manufacturing and service teams. External partners are seamlessly integrated into your development process – without allowing external companies access to your PRO.FILE installation.

  • You use one system to manage all of your CAD data and product-related documents.
  • You can rest assured that all of your variants have been well documented.
  • You can access your change history at the click of a button.
  • Your BOMs are automatically transferred to the ERP system.
  • You can securely exchange entire assemblies with external companies.

Production planning is the brain that controls your manufacturing processes. But in order for it to work, it needs to be able to access any and all manufacturing information on your products. Having to search for this data is time-consuming and prevents your teams from doing their jobs.

With PRO.FILE, we have developed a PLM solution that automatically provides production planners and purchasers with the most current version of product development data, for example bills of materials, along with any related drawings in PDF or TIF format.

  • You are automatically provided with item master data, bills of materials, and CAD documents once they are approved by the development department.
  • You can use PRO.FILE to compare variants and BOMs of different versions.
  • Our data exchange platform PROOM provides a secure way to seamlessly exchange your technical documents with suppliers, partners, or customers.
  • PRO.FILE also helps you enforce guidelines for purchased parts.

Errors found in drawings, NC programs, routings and other documents once production is underway can cause major headaches.

By managing your documents with PRO.FILE, you can systematically prevent this from happening. You can rest assured that all documents are available on the production floor on time, in full, and in their most current version.

  • Your employees can access the most current drawings, NC programs, and other documents simply by clicking a button on their terminals.
  • You can match batch-related machine logs to products.
  • You can ensure compliance with rules and regulations with complete audit trails of the manufacturing process.

Good customer service has become a part of the product. With Industry 4.0 on the horizon, preventive maintenance and repair are gaining increasing importance and can help differentiate you from the competition.

Our PLM solution PRO.FILE streamlines service delivery by providing complete control over your service processes.

  • Your service technicians can access all documents in the lifecycle file of a particular machine while on location.
  • Damage reports or pictures of the damage are send to headquarters directly from within the PROOM Mobile App. At headquarters, the information is matched to the machine in question and forwarded to the company’s quality managers, controllers, or developers.
  • Your service engineers can use electronic forms to capture their assignment data and automatically manage them.

Our PDM system PRO.FILE also comes equipped with DMStec. This allows you to manage all documents that are relevant to your IT processes along with your document-intensive processes.

PRO.FILE works according to the “configuration over programming” principle. System implementation is fast and cost-effective. And you can continue to configure the document management system to match your requirements, for example by modifying user interfaces, classification systems, reports, or workflows.

  • You start out with PRO.FILE’s out-of-the-box standards and then adapt them to suit your specific needs.
  • You can rely on our English-speaking PRO.FILE customer service representatives to provide a single point of contact for any support needed. If need be, they will take your questions all the way to the development department.
  • You get to map your processes to PRO.FILE.
  • You can conveniently exchange sensitive data – without allowing external companies access to your PRO.FILE installation.
  • You benefit from PRO.FILE as an integrated system for all of your product data and document management needs.
