Solution

Fundamental renewal of CAD and product data management with the aim of continuously documenting product development; integration of the heterogeneous CAD environment via workspaces; automatic transfer of master data to the ERP system via web services; construction of a project-related document management system with role-specific access rights; mapping of a uniform change process with the Engineering Change Management module of the PLM system.

Benefits

Reduction of the effort for documenting rule-compliance by complete management of all development and change-relevant documents in the respective version and revision levels; significantly faster search for information; improvement of transparency over the entire product lifecycle by creating projects for each terminal device and each product variant; high investment security through open and scalable PLM software.

Specifics

Analysis of weaknesses in the documentation of products and processes by simulating a product recall; replacement of an existing team data management system with CIM database; mapping the different requirements and quality regulations in the automotive industry, industrial hydraulics and other areas of application in the PLM system; manual CAD migration in order to clean up and restructure the data.
In the hypothetical case of a callback, CIM Database allows us to prove our rule-compliance quickly and easily.
