PLM Solutions

acentrix’ overall solutions for Product Lifecycle Management help you optimize your processes in the areas of digital product development, design and manufacturing. The PLM portfolio is supplemented by individual software solutions and a sustainable ALM strategy. PLM stands for a holistic, company-wide management and control of all data and processes associated with a product or a service for its full duration.

PLM Consulting

PLM Consulting

The main focus of our consulting is the analysis of your existing processes and methods in the fields of design and manufacturing. Based on the results of the analysis and on your objectives, the next step follows: we develop overall strategies for the product lifecycle and product data management including all measures and possibilities concerning the software that is needed for the fastest possible realization. The product data management (PDM) plays a central role in PLM and is the foundation for a regulated running development process. It manages all product-defining data (e.g. CAD models, parts and BOM information and metadata) in the context of technical and organizational business processes.

PLM Integration

After the consulting phase we will purposefully assist you during the integration phase and support you by answering your questions, advising in case of problems and/or with adopting new targets, although there are numerous and easy to implement solutions for the product data management using a standard software. They are based on a central database for managing product and manufacturing information and metadata. In this database the data is available in real-time. Due to the agile implementation methods developed by acentrix, which are collectively referred to as “PLM Transformation”, companies can cost-efficiently and rapidly introduce the PDM system – locally and across multiple divisions.

Software Solutions

Software Solutions

If sophisticated and innovative business processes cannot be realized optimally through standard software, the solution might be the development of individual software. We examine your technical and business processes and develop individual solutions in a future-proof manner. In addition, we extend the used software or customize it and thereby ensure optimal interfaces, exactly adapted to your workflow and requirements. We give preference to open source solutions while considering the tools and concepts that are already available in the company. Through our experienced team and the development of best practice solutions you will benefit from lower development costs, and you will improve the consistency of your communication and flow of information by avoiding media disruption in system interfaces.

“With our division PLM Solutions we have achieved a powerful unit that will satisfy the needs of customers realizing Industry 4.0 use cases optimally.”
