If new products are precisely tailored to customer requirements, they ensure the survival of industrial companies. But is it always possible to bring the new products to market within the planned budget and time frame? After all, modern solutions are characterised by new technologies and functionalities that are controlled by software and electronics.
Intelligent products require intelligently controlled innovation processes across systems and organisations. The direct integration of ECAD tools into the PTC Windchill PLM system facilitates networked work for the departments involved. The basis for this is the management of all engineering data and objects in a common mechatronic PLM environment. So-called data transfer events can trigger cross-domain workflows that further improve collaboration efficiency. The result is a shorter time-to-market with a higher return due to:
Since 2017, XPLM has been the official technology provider for all ECAD integrations, successor to the ECAD Workgroup Manager.
integrate2 – ECAD Windchill integrations enable cross-disciplinary collaboration between design teams. Thanks to CAD data integration, Windchill combines mechanical, electrical and electronic design data in a common data model including mechatronic parts list. From here, the ECAD data can be specifically integrated into a workflow context so that those involved always make fact-based decisions on the basis of up-to-date technical data. Thus, integrate2 is a solution that shortens and simplifies an essential business process through its unique technology.
