The priority of the 3D CAD data management increases in many companies. This data management is a centralized storage of all product and service information. It causes a continuous and most efficient management of product data. Tasks can be defined without any problem. Afterwards, they can be allocated automatically to intern or extern participants. The visual controlling of all operations in real time allows to reveal possible problems quickly – so they can be solved early.
A PLM-System (Product LifeCycle Managementsystem) can be connected by an intelligent connection to consisting PPS/ERP systems without changing all operational structures. Therefore, a product can be accompanied from the first idea to the production and sale. Possible mistakes are uncovered early and the time for developing a product is reduced.
