WINDCHILL PLM

PTC recognizes the need for fast, scalable tools to manage your product lifecycle and drive revenue, reduce costs, and stay competitive. With Windchill, the industry-leading PLM software from PTC, you can digitalize and connect your enterprise in this new world. Here’s the potential impact across your enterprise:

• Windchill’s out-of-the-box functionality can be quickly implemented and scaled to create a seamless data value stream, providing traceability from engineering through quality, manufacturing, sales, and service for both experts and non-experts

• To increase productivity, product development can unite, distribute, and dynamically visualize multi-CAD models and related information with automation.

• Factories can concurrently source approved parts and plan without errors, reducing time to industrialization.

• Field service can access up-to-date product information with real-time IoT visibility of connected products.

    Windchill Capabilities

    PDM software helps organizations connect and communicate product information
    across globally distributed teams where multiple CAD tools may be used.
    Windchill can be embedded into all major MCAD systems so users can manage
    and edit CAD data and related documents (e.g., Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF)
    without leaving their native MCAD environment. Access to data is optimized for
    the remote worker by being web-based, accessible from a Windows desktop,
    and available in the PTC Cloud. Lightweight viewables and self-service access
    to role-based apps in secure project spaces enable automated sharing of more
    consumable data to non-CAD users.

    The various teams involved in a product’s lifecycle create a range of digital data.
    Not only does this data span disparate functional systems, it often evolves over
    time – and quickly.
    With Windchill you deliver a real-time view of the most accurate data to all
    enterprise stakeholders, expanding cross-discipline involvement. Standardizing
    on PTC’s best practices for change and configuration management will drive
    efficiencies. Better, more informed decisions can drive down the costs of poor
    quality and enable your organization to implement changes and introduce new
    products to market faster.

    Effective requirements and validation practices are more than just an integral
    part of developing and engineering complex products and systems. They are
    vital to mitigating risk and ensuring customer satisfaction.
    With Windchill you can centrally manage evolving requirements, test assets,
    and software configurations. By automating the traceability and sharing
    of data, you enable cross-functional collaboration across applications
    and throughout the product lifecycle. With holistic visibility into evolving
    requirements, stakeholders can easily manage test sessions, determine the
    impact of proposed changes, and verify test results against requirements for
    better product quality and compliance.

    Most manufacturers are grappling with speed and agility in the face of
    growing numbers of product options and variants.
    With Windchill’s BOM management and BOM transformation capabilities,
    product designers create and manage a part-centric digital product that
    can be leveraged at every step of the product lifecycle. Now mechanical,
    software, electronic parts and related artifacts can be integrated into the
    engineering BOM. This provides your organization a single interface with
    which both upstream and downstream teams will collaborate on such
    domain systems as ECAD, MCAD, Software, PLM and ERP. Windchill ensures
    that everyone – from the shop floor worker and service technician to a seller
    configuring a customer order – is using the correct product information.

    Traditional approaches to manufacturing make it complex to produce variants
    and configurations. Product diversity breeds higher inventories, lower economies
    of scale, service inefficiencies, manufacturing errors, and increased risk of noncompliance.
    With the product variability management capabilities in Windchill, you can
    strategically design, create, manage, and validate product variants. Platform
    options, choices, logic, and configuration rules are directly linked to BOM, 3D
    visualization, and CAD data to deliver a robust modular solution. You can fully
    manage platform information across the lifecycle, making it easily available to
    validate the product and share it with other enterprise tools such as ERP and CPQ

    With manufacturing process management capabilities (MPM) you gain the
    collaboration tools and methodologies needed to manufacture and build
    products anywhere, 24×7. MPM brings design and the shop floor together with
    suppliers, logistics, and quality for a more connected, agile enterprise.
    With the MPM capabilities available in Windchill, you can feed shop floor data
    into MPM for greater process efficiencies. End users can access technical
    work instructions on demand (on a screen or with augmented reality) before
    performing their own work or assisting in completing another task.

    Globalization, outsourcing, and remote work have significantly increased the
    complexity of product development. Internal teams – operations, engineering,
    manufacturing, sales, marketing, purchasing, and customer service – can
    be widely distributed across different offices and time zones. Suppliers and
    customers are even further removed. PLM project management tools enable
    extended product teams to securely collaborate regardless of their location.

    As products grow more complex, multiple engineering disciplines need to
    work together to design, build and maintain them. Designing a system using
    models enables early visualization and simulation, improving stakeholder
    buy-in and customer satisfaction

    PLM enables companies to centrally manage all service information in
    relationship to products, systems, and components. The key advantage of this
    product-centric approach is that it helps maximize the reuse of engineering and
    configuration-specific information.
