XPLM Solution for Putzmeister

 » XPLM´s integration solution is very intuitive and provides a consistent design process from Creo 3D modeling to Teamcenter and our ERP system. The integration is stable and is used by about 200 engineers at eight sites around the globe. «

- Markus Fetzer, Team leader Product Data Management / Project manager PDM

The Challenge

Realizing an undisturbed transition process with a minimized loss of design efficiency.

Project Phase

  1. Implementation of Siemens Teamcenter as the future PLM platform
  2. Migration of existing design data from PTC WorkManager to Siemens Teamcenter
  3. Integration of PTC Creo Elements/Direct to Siemens Teamcenter, using XPLM´s Creo Elements/Direct integration
  4. Training of engineers and implementation of the ‘go-live’ with Teamcenter and the integrated PTC Creo Elements/ Direct as the main CAD system
  5. Introduction of Siemens NX with subsequent CAD transition to the new format, using tools from Elysium and XPLM

Customer Benefits

  • XPLM´s migration and CAD-integration know-how enabled Putzmeister to move to the appropriate new PLM system
  • The data migration tools and processes used ensured continuous engineering and access to the existing CAD design data in a modern PLM environment
  • Global collaboration was optimized through successful integration of locations across the globe
  • Future enhancements and the integration of additional engineering domains such as the electric development team is much easier in the new IT landscape, than the previous system
  • Direct BOM data transfer from Teamcenter into SAP ERP
