Has Consolidation Made the PLM Market More Agile? Part Two: Market Impact


The advent and growth of vendors targeting the needs of discrete manufacturing industries proves that the PLM market in this sector has been hot. Agile Software has made a name for itself by providing the tools that support the collaborative exchange of product data, appealing to companies that rely on contractors for the manufacture of its products. For companies whose BOMs change frequently, this integrated capability set has been extremely important, and Agile has thrived in the PLM selection situations requiring extensive external collaboration.

However, the package lacked in requirements management (it could not provide a means of relating requirements to design, visualizing how requirements relate to designs, reporting requirements not addressed by design, etc.) and project management (Gantt-based planning and management charts, project work breakdown structures [WBS], etc.) capabilities, both of which would require the use of a third party application, though the Agile integration kit has been available Read More

The Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM


The product development life cycle - innovate, conceptualize, plan, design, procure, produce, deliver, service, and retire - naturally includes multiple people, operating in multiple departments, and typically from multiple companies, each with locations in multiple countries around the world. Solving inherent difficulties that result from managing this complexity are the raison d’être for PLM solutions.

While CAD involves the use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of product design activities, allowing quick evaluation and modification of the designer's intent, PDM systems are merely vaults for storing and updating data, which replace paper-based processes and information storage with a single, centralized data repository that enables authorized users throughout a company to access and update current product information, while ensuring they follow specific procedures.

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design


Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems. Designing and stimulating these products collaboratively across both domains is essential to producing high quality products. Learn how implementing an electro-computer-aided design (ECAD) and mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) strategy—now—can help you later.

Siemens’ JT Data Format Gets a Nod from ISO


The year 2012 ended with a major win for (and perhaps a sigh of relief from) Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division. Namely, in December 2012, Siemens’ JT data format, a lightweight data format that makes it possible to view and share digital 3D product information in real time throughout all phases of a product’s lifecycle, was approved by the

When combined with Siemens Teamcenter PLM, the various native CAD files can be managed as a multi-CAD dataset with the complete assembly being represented by JT files that are linked to their CAD counterparts. As mentioned earlier, JT translators are available for all major CAD systems. JT is about 3D visualization and collaboration, so users generally create JT data along with their CAD models and keep them in a Read More

Should its open-source software enjoy wide adoption, it could transform 3D printer makers into mere plastic box makers, just like Microsoft did with PC makers 30 years ago.   This could be a game changer in a highly competitive market, especially with lower barrier entry after patent expirations. Autodesk’s move is similar Read More
