Paperless Product Documentation

Eliminating Media Discontinuities in Processes Does your manufacturing company thoroughly develop its products in 3D and manage its model data in a PLM system? Would you like to use your 3D models together with metadata and PMI (product manufacturing information) throughout processes and gradually eliminate the creation of drawings? Do you want to improve your […]

Agile Process and Modular PLM Architectures

The development of products and production systems that are linked via the Internet places new demands on how PLM processes are organized and what PLM system landscapes look like. The integration of not just the different engineering disciplines but also the development and manufacturing planning departments or the development and service departments is becoming increasingly […]

The Shift to Model Based Systems Engineering

In the past, engineering projects revolved around ‘document’ and ‘drawing’ centric processes which each contained fragments of information about the whole system. The major downside to this model was that it failed to keep and manage the ‘pieces of information and their connections’. This model also lacked quick access and consistent traceability when project data […]

A SMART Way of Integrating PTC ThingWorx IoT Platform with PLM and ALM Systems

Smart manufacturing starts with smart product engineering and design. By the year 2020, multiple studies have suggested the world’s population will have over 50 billion connected devices. Understanding the Internet of Things, IoT, is complex, but vital to the changing landscape of technology within engineering and design. Simply put, IoT is the massive connection of […]
