CONTACT CIM Database Integration

Efficient collaboration and faster processes in product development

Nowadays, in order to support the life cycle of technically sophisticated products from the initial idea right up until use by the customer, this requires a continuous flow of information and efficient processes. You can use the data management system of CIM Database to control processes and projects across disciplinary, system and organisational boundaries. This includes integration of the development data, the automated generation of data for production, and the collaboration that is involved in the approval processes.

CONTACT CIM Database for central product data management

CONTACT CIM Database is a comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) solution that can be flexibly integrated into your ERP and CAD systems thanks to our interface solution. CIM Database was developed for the high-tech and electronics industry, the automotive supply industry, industrial manufacturing, and the aerospace and defence industries and supports employees, suppliers and partners in bringing products to market faster, improving design efficiency and reducing the cost of introducing new products.

CAD data integration in CIM Database for seamless product development

The platform developed by XPLM, integrate2, enables CIM Database to be seamlessly integrated into your ERP, CAD and other systems involved in the product development process. This leads to cross-disciplinary collaboration between design teams and combines mechanical, electrical and electronically embedded software design data on a single platform. The integrated approach supports your compliance with quality specifications, release dates, and cost targets.
