Darren Parrillo, CAD PDM Manager

Customer Requirements

The challenge of working with multiple mechanical and electrical CAD Systems led Brooks Automation to XPLM’s integration solutions and expertise. They needed a solution that could:

  • Connect Oracle Agile PLM with PTC, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, as well as Altium Designer
  • Allow for the storage of all CAD files in Oracle Agile PLM

Customer Benefits

  • XPLM´s migration and CAD-integration know-how enabled Brooks Automation to seamlessly integrate multiple CAD systems with Oracle Agile PLM
  • The training offered to Brooks Automation, alongside the ongoing support from XPLM allowed Brooks to take control of the project implemention, CAD data migration and in-house education. This supported independence contributed to the success of the project
  • Global collaboration was optimized through successful integration of locations across the globe
  • A common process and system for processing CAD assemblies across sites was made possible
  • Human error was minimized through automation, which although hard to measure, inevitably saves time and reduces costs with streamlined and reliable processes.
  • Ease of use in comparison to other solutions in the industry
