Meeting Configure One at PlanetPTC Live 2011


My recent attendance of the PlanetPTC Live 2011 event was a great learning experience. Look for an article with my impressions on the conference and on PTC’s strategy with regards to the novel PTC Creo suite of design applications leveraging both the direct and parametric modeling (and in the wake of the release of nine Creo 1.0 applications), embedded software lifecycle management (with the MKS

Is There a Way to Avoid Lengthy Catalog Numbers?


A sales configurator needs to be able to "decipher" products' specifications from a rule-based, constructed catalog number. Part number users should query vendors to determine whether their enterprise solutions cater to the needs of industrial automation manufacturers.

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint


There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking thanks to various factors driving the market. Currently, however, the difference still matters in the solution selection process.
