PROSTEP V6 xPDM PTC Windchill Adapter


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

Product Overview

The PROSTEP V6 XPDM PTC Windchill Adapter is based on Dassault Systèmes’ V6 XPDM data exchange framework that connects V6 with Windchill in order to synchronize data between both systems bi-directionally. The scope involved is the transfer of BOMs and product structures, including CAD files.

This product also allows updates to be performed in the backend systems using a controlled transaction management procedure to ensure data integrity. This includes locking, check-in/out, ownership transfer, versioning and transaction management. Process reliability and flexibility is ensured by the underlying PROSTEP OpenPDM technology.

A typical use case is the integration of ENOVIA V6 as the TDM system and Windchill as the PDM system. Another one is the integration of any CAD designs into CATIA V6. The migration from Windchill-connected CAD systems to CATIA V6 is also possible.

Customer Benefits

  • The solution allows the integration of V6 and Windchill using tried-and-tested standard software.

  • The use of standard interfaces and separate business logic makes the solution more independent of system upgrades and reduces the amount of effort involved.

  • Typical use cases are already covered "out of the box", and projects can be planned more reliably.

  • The pre-configured product software reduces ramp-up times.

  • Benefit from PROSTEP’s experience with integration and migration as well as from PROSTEP’s partnerships with Dassault and PTC.
