Sundiro Honda Motorcycle Co., Ltd. has carried out a sophisticated system selection focused on optimizing its engineering and collaboration processes, selecting CIM Database PLM and CONTACT Workspaces as the best solution. With the PLM applications from CONTACT Software, the company aims to provide product data and documents centrally and manage its dynamic development projects consistently and efficiently.
“CONTACT's open component architecture convinces with state-of-the-art web technology and powerful applications for the product development process," says Biao Zhang, Director General Research & Development at Sundiro Honda. "So we have the option to expand our PLM environment step by step and are well positioned to meet future market requirements."
Sundiro Honda is a Chinese-Japanese joint venture with around 3,800 employees, in which Sundiro Holding and Honda each hold 50% of the shares. The company has meanwhile launched more than 50 motorcycle models with Honda technology for passionate bikers and racing. Each year, the two production plants in China produce more than 1 million motorcycles and the same number of motor units. The product portfolio also includes scooters, which are increasingly supplied with an electric drive, and e-bikes.
Sundiro Honda is supported by CONTACT's Shanghai-based partner E-UCI, who brings its extensive expertise in the automotive & mobility sector to the project. The introduction of CIM Database starts with CAD data and document management. Other solution modules include the management of change processes, project management and controlling, and SAP data and process synchronization. E-UCI is supported by CONTACT's international professional services team.
“The products of Sundiro Honda are technological leaders and in demand worldwide," says Michael S. Murgai, Director of International Sales & Partner Management at CONTACT Software. “We are proud to contribute to greater efficiency and productivity in Sundiro Honda's product development processes and look forward to working with them.”
