PDM PLM Processintegration

Seamless process integration for end-to-end data consistency

Process Integration

PDM and PLM systems enable process integration without system discontinuities.

PDM PLM Process Integration

Use state-of-the-art Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems to reduce the complexity of product development processes. PLM specifically involves managing and controlling all product data along the entire lifecycle, from design and production through to sales and servicing. 

PDM systems ensure greater efficiency by centrally managing documents such as CAD models, drawings, calculations, office data and associated files such as specifications and test reports, and by making them accessible in a fully traceable and change-proof manner throughout the process. Find out more about the different PDM PLM solutions: Error-free processes combined with end-to-end data consistency promise greater project success. Interfaces may promise maximum flexibility, but routine business remains dominated by challenges:

  • Media discontinuities and data inconsistencies due to system diversity / isolated solutions (e.g. CAD, PDM/TDM, SAP, 3DEXPERIENCE)
  •  Absence of information along the value chain
  •  Communication gaps between design/development and work preparation/production
  •  Insufficient automation and process integration (approvals, standardization of specifications, materials, terminologies)
  •  Insufficient measuring and transparency through the entire company
  •  Manual and time-consuming BOM processes
