What Can Aras’ Selection as PLM Enhancement at MAN Diesel & Turbo Tell Us?


While multi-CAD (computer aided design) situations have been a matter of course at large manufacturing organizations, it appears that multi-PLM (product lifecycle management) software deployments will follow suit. To that end, Aras, an upbeat open source PLM software solution provider for large enterprises, recently announced that MAN Diesel @ Turbo (MAN), a provider of large bore diesel engines

In addition, the PLM data models are not particularly strong in some of Windchill modules (although, to be fair, PDMLink is the most complete and functional). Dassault Systèmes’ ENOVIA PLM brand, MatrixOne , which was acquired in 2006, was an enterprise-class PLM (and flexible) system by origin. Since being acquired, its CAD management part has been much improved. After acquiring MatrixOne, Dassault Systèmes has rebranded all of its PLM assets Read More

Windchill


Windchill is a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution that was designed from the ground up to work in an Internet-based, distributed design environment. Windchill technology forms the foundation of the packages PTC offers to address data, change, configuration, and process management; product development collaboration; project management and execution; and the release of product information to manufacturing management systems.   Windchill PDMLink consolidates scattered islands of information into a single information source, which can help bring order to chaotic change processes and speed the development of new product configurations.   Windchill ProjectLink creates a virtual workspace that becomes the central access point for a project, which helps provide team members with access to information. By automating project management activities, Windchill ProjectLink can help PTC customers better manage all of their programs, project schedules, information, and processes.   All Windchill solutions include visualization capabilities that allow individuals anywhere in the organization to review complex product information in meaningful terms.

PTC Sees SMBs as “Essential” to Its Business


While opportunities for new or replacement product lifecycle management (PLM) systems at large enterprises are rare, neither is the small to medium business (SMB) market fully exploited. To that end, PTC recently announced the release of PTC Windchill PDM Essentials, the company’s product data management (PDM) software. The product aims to bring concurrent engineering to smaller

On the down side, PDMlink is a full-featured PDM system that comes as a toolset requiring lots of configuration, a lengthy implementation, and a steep learning curve. Thus, aiming to provide a simpler PDM product for smaller enterprises, in 2008 PTC introduced Microsoft SharePoint–based PTC Read More

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development


Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive. But thanks to modern computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, many manufacturing companies now have the tools that allow better alignment of cost and value-add. This is what’s referred to as “global product development.” Learn more.
