by : PROSTEP

Engineering Domain : Product Life Cycle Management
Prerequisites : MUX V6, PCS V6, XCD V6

Product Overview

The PROSTEP OpenPDM Windchill Integration for 3DEXPERIENCE seamlessly connects your PLM processes between the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform and Windchill. Independent of the engineering domain in CATIA or DELMIA, the integration manages the information exchange with Windchill. Synchronize your product data in a bi-directional way to guarantee consistent information and lifecycle information across system borders.

The integration solution is based on the world-leading PLM integration platform OpenPDM by PROSTEP. As all OpenPDM solutions, the connectors to 3DEXPERIENCE and Windchill work with the official API from Dassault Systèmes and from PTC and have the capability to read and write all standard object models as well as your customized object models. The defined P&O and security restrictions are automatically respected.

All information is synchronized automatically in the background without the need of user interaction. The powerful OpenPDM PROCESS engine gives you the possibility to model the business processes according to your business needs. The OpenPDM PROCESS monitoring provides an easy-to-use interface to administrators and key users.

PROSTEP has a long history of software partnership with Dassault Systèmes as well as with PTC. Based on these strong partnerships, the functionalities of OpenPDM connectors are always increased to follow and support new features as well as new system releases. In combination with the experiences of the PROSTEP PLM team we offer the best-in-class 3DEXPERIENCE integration solution.
