The biggest challenge faced in PLM implimentation is how to integrate product data throughout the entire product lifecycle, ranging from conception,design,manufacture, operation and devolution. Comprehensive solutions/tools/techniques are available for the analysis of existing data and development of comprehensive data migration strategies and tools to support transfer of existing data from most sources into your PLM system.
Data Migration & Integration
CAx Integration - Integration of all major MCAD, ECAD, CAM, and CAE systems, including AutoCAD, CATIA V4and V5, I-deas, Inventor, NX, OrCAD, Pro/Engineer, SmartCAM, Solid Edge, Solid Works, and Unigraphics.
MRP /ERP Integration - Specification and implementation of integrations to all major MRP and ERP systems, including Manage2000, Oracle, SAP, Vantage, etc., allowing the controlled transfer of material master, BOM and other information between PLM and MRP/ERP systems.
PLM / PDM Integration - Specification and implementation of integrations between different PLM systems and between PLM and PDM or CAD Data Management systems, such as I-deas TDM, NX Manager, PDM Works, Pro/Intralink, Solid Edge Insight, etc.
Legacy System Integration - Specification and implementation of integrations and interfaces between your PLM and existing legacy systems.
