cad drawing  (CAD)–led asset management software. CAD Service’s enterprise asset management (EAM) OpenCAD solution is  fully integrated with the Infor EAM application, not a standalone application. The tight integration will help organizations boost asset visibility without the need to run two or more separate systems. EAM OpenCAD supports both DWG (Autodesk Inc) and DGN (Microstation Inc) drawing formats so graphics can be accessed more immediately using the software's integrated auto-discovery capabilities.

Hitachi Rail Adopts PTC PLM Globally


At the upper-end of the product lifecycle management (PLM) software market, brand new deals are rare, and expanding business with existing customers is much more common. To that end, PTC recently announced that Hitachi, Ltd. Rail Systems has selected the PTC Global Product Development solution based on PTC Windchill PLM technology as its single enterprise platform for global product development throughout its railway vehicle engineering and manufacturing business.

The company also required the capability to manage the engineering bill of materials (eBOM) and the manufacturing bill of materials (mBOM).   The implementation of the PTC solution has reportedly increased Hitachi’s visibility into daily workload on the shop floor by improving the accuracy of bill of material (BOM) information, resulting in part inventory level, component, and materials procurement process optimization. The Hitachi manufacturing team is Read More

What Does the “M” in PLM Really Mean?


In the two previous blog posts (What Does the “P” in PLM Really Mean? and What Does the “L” in PLM Really Mean?) I discussed the object being managed within the product lifecycle management (PLM) methodology. Now, it is the time to move on to the last word—“management.” Management is such a general term nowadays, that simply looking at it won’t give you much idea of what it is about in the PLM

cad drawing  such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) are the most direct contributors to the productivity of generating product definition information. However, these are not enough. It is not rare to see a manufacturer send part drawings to a supplier through e-mails and for the latter have a hard time loading the files, or for a design engineer to spend one hour to find an existing drawing that he can simply re-create in half an hour. These two Read More

What’s Happening on Your Shop Floor?


While many ERP software companies claim to support manufacturing companies, their solutions do little more than accounting, order entry, and other office tasks. They are not suitable for use on the shop floor. Fortunately, today’s integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems can provide the shop floor control and manufacturing execution systems (MES) functionality that manufacturers need. Find out more.

cad drawing  special feature within your CAD system to number and name each dimension on the part drawing. Then, whenever the drawing is saved, it synchronizes the dimensions and their tolerances to the part specification list, which in turn drives the control plan, checksheet, and data collection systems. The CAD integration subsystem saves you from having to type dimensional data and adds a high degree of advanced integration between engineering, quality and manufacturing.

The Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM


The product development life cycle - innovate, conceptualize, plan, design, procure, produce, deliver, service, and retire - naturally includes multiple people, operating in multiple departments, and typically from multiple companies, each with locations in multiple countries around the world. Solving inherent difficulties that result from managing this complexity are the raison d’être for PLM solutions.

cad drawing  management (PDM) systems. While CAD involves the use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of product design activities, allowing quick evaluation and modification of the designer's intent, PDM systems are merely vaults for storing and updating data, which replace paper-based processes and information storage with a single, centralized data repository that enables authorized users throughout a company to access and update current product information, while ensuring they follow specific procedures.

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design


Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems. Designing and stimulating these products collaboratively across both domains is essential to producing high quality products. Learn how implementing an electro-computer-aided design (ECAD) and mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) strategy—now—can help you later.

PTC Sees SMBs as “Essential” to Its Business


While opportunities for new or replacement product lifecycle management (PLM) systems at large enterprises are rare, neither is the small to medium business (SMB) market fully exploited.
