Flexible, cross-divisional innovation process with comprehensively transparent product data. MCAD connectors available for Oracle PDM, Oracle PLM and Aras.
Smart minds alone are no longer enough to ensure that manufacturing companies can meet their challenges. New technologies that are being developed more and more rapidly require them to constantly improve their processes in order to remain competitive. Global, digitised markets expect ever faster product innovations. It's irrelevant that innovation processes are becoming increasingly demanding because manufacturers have to design them to cross the boundaries of functions, systems and organisations.
Combining agile, interdisciplinary development with the integration of tools for mechanical and electrical design, simulations, virtual prototyping and virtual commissioning shortens the time-to-market. As a result, digital twins and digital threads are becoming increasingly important.
PLM systems offer the ideal basis for this because they are able to record data from any system and bring transparency to logical connections. Fully integrated into the navigation of the design tool, data management in PLM can be done from the normal work environment. Intelligent integrations relieve users of onerous, time-consuming tasks, such as editing the models and their outputs in neutral format; they monitor versioning, support change management and do much more besides. Defined actions can trigger cross-departmental and cross-company workflows and at the same time provide context-related data in the appropriate format.
With the strategic goal of digitising the entire innovation process in a future-proof manner, switching the mechanical design from its PDM or EDM system to a PLM system will quickly pay off.
