Lifecycle File

Bids, orders, and order confirmations, for example, often serve to determine the initial project structures within the ERP system. These refer to a (standard) plant and are then transferred to the PRO.FILE DMStec system where they create an empty machine or lifecycle file. It will be populated with data provided by the [...]

Mechatronics

In modern mechanical engineering, you will be hard pressed to find a component that does not involve electrical/electronic elements and is not electronically controlled. Mechatronic products such as the control panel of a robotic arm contain mechanical assemblies, electrical components, and frequently software-driven electronic [...]

Part master data

The synchronization of item master data is a hallmark of the ERP integration of product data management (PDM/PLM). Consistent item master data is essential to guaranteeing seamless and error-free workflows across the company and a sure way to significantly cut costs. PRO.FILE (PDM/PLM system) automatically transfers part master [...]
