ESE GmbH increases development efficiency with CIM Database PLM
The engineering and development service provider ESE GmbH uses CONTACT’s PLM system to implement a consistent database for all employees. The scalable solution enables agile end-to-end processes in engineering.
The ESE GmbH offers innovative solutions for customers in the sectors automotive, rail, and industry. More than 400 employees at several German locations work in the areas of technology consulting, engineering services, and assessment services. Their projects range from safety reports for cobots to software for the communication between train and interlocking. Since 2020, ESE is part of the DB E.C.O. Group, the engineering and consulting group of Germany’s national railway company Deutsche Bahn.
For the coming years, ESE expects a significant increase in project business. This is due to the ongoing modernization and continuous expansion of the German rail network. Another contributing factor is the increasing importance of cross-sectional technologies in the automotive industry, such as safety and cybersecurity. In order to prepare for the expected growth with a scalable solution, ESE relies on CIM Database PLM to digitize end-to-end processes at its headquarters in Braunschweig, Germany.
CIM Database PLM creates a consistent data model by connecting to ESE’s existing multi-CAD environment. All employees access the same database according to the single source of truth principle and benefit from end-to-end processes. This accelerates cross-discipline collaboration and reduces errors and costs. With the integrated multi-project management, ESE also ensures a transparent exchange of information and increases project safety.
“CIM Database enables us to use our development capacities in the most efficient way and flexibly react to new requirements,” says Roland Machmer, Business Manager Development & Design at ESE.
