CIM Database shortens delivery times
The medium-sized company is a global player with sales and service branches in 16 countries. A few years ago, teamtechnik made the decision to accelerate the development of its international business by establishing globally distributed development and production sites. To achieve this, the IT infrastructure, which consisted of a large number of non-integrated databases and applications, had to be completely renewed. Parallel to the ERP solution PSIpenta, CIM Database was implemented as a company-wide PLM backbone. The close integration of commercial ERP and creative PLM worlds has made it possible to shorten project and development times considerably and significantly accelerate business processes. Around 500 users worldwide work with the PLM solution at seven locations.
Company-wide PLM platform for product development, project management, production planning and purchasing: document management; CAx data management for ME 10, SolidWorks and Eplan; bidirectional PLM-ERP integration with PSIpenta; leading system for creating and maintaining article masters and bills of material; extensive support for procurement processes; workflows for release and change management; plot management for multilingual drawing output.
Reduction of project lead times by 30 to 40 percent, especially in the case of complex testing and assembly systems for the automotive industry; acceleration of procurement processes through immediate parts ordering after approval.
Savings in the creation of technical documentation through automatic output of drawings in the language required by the customer; always up-to-date plant documentation, as configuration of the finished plants including maintenance or conversion measures is maintained in the database.
