Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) are terms that are sometimes used interchangeably, but there are actually significant differences between them – in reality PDM is too narrow to describe the full breadth of capabilities that a true PLM system offers. LEAP’s recent webinar on this topic is summarised here to clear up any misconceptions about PDM and PLM for manufacturing organisations.
Learn more about the PTC Advanced Partner Program (APP) which provides a key point of difference for PTC partners such as LEAP – demonstrating proven competence in particular technologies (such as PLM & AR).
Learn how Black Lab switched from Solidworks to Onshape, driven by a need for greater flexibility with their CAD system and the challenges of documentation management and working with remote design teams – which have been uniquely satisfied by Onshape’s cloud-based solution.
In the final installment of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we discuss how Windchill’s core content management capabilities and the ability of organisations to utilise them as a ‘single source of truth’ facilitates collaboration across departments outside of engineering and beyond.
In the 5th installment of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we discuss the importance of quality management, the implications of problems with quality occurring and how Windchill can be utilised as the foundation for closed loop quality.
In the 4th installment of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we explore how BOM management works within Windchill, how to configure various BOMs for both upstream and downstream use and how Windchill can integrate with other enterprise systems to share engineering data with the wider organisation.
In the 3rd installment of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we explore ThingWorx Navigate which allows non-expert PLM users to access Windchill data without having to deal with the complexities of using the fully fledged PLM system.
In the 2nd installment of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we take a deeper dive into Windchill’s object-based digital data model and how it manages product data and give a live demonstration of Windchill’s core PDM functionality including tracking down in which assemblies a particular part is used, connectivity between Windchill and your CAD system, workflows and tasks and much, much more.
In the 1st part of our 6-part Windchill PLM webinar series, we recap highlights including Digital Transformation and the Digital Thread, PLM for Data and Process Management and How PLM is the backbone of the Digital Thread.
