The digital future of your product data
Digitalization, the Internet of Things, and Industry 4.0 are changing the face of manufacturing and industrial products.
Product and Document Lifecycle Management plays a vital role in this by delivering product data that provides the foundation for digital processes
Our short film about digitalization
Today’s workplace is modern and connected. We’re mobile and always online but are we fully digitalized yet?
Your teams are collaborating on products and projects, but is your data too?
Take the next step with PROCAD and talk to us about the digital future of your product data!
Digitalization begins with a Product Data Backbone
Product data and documents are generated in every department from research and development to engineering, purchasing, quality assurance, sales, customer support, etc. and very often each department stores the data in their own files shares and in their own systems.
This makes it very difficult to work seamlessly across department lines.
The first step to achieving end-to-end product and document lifecycle digitalization is to implement a Product Data Backbone as your secure, central backbone for all product relevant documents and data.
As products become more complex, so does the job of managing the different disciplines involved in the development of technical products, be it mechanical, electrical, electronical or software. Therefore, it is critical to have a single pain of glass to manage and control all the inter-dependencies between each discipline and when a change occurs in one discipline, everyone is made aware of any direct and functional relationships throughout the entire product lifecycle.
Is it enough to scan a document to digitalize it?
We are used to compiling information about documents and images, in order to better understand them and to provide a base for making decisions.
End-to-end digitalization means that this information is available digitally and can be immediately leveraged by other systems. Information must be able to trigger actions and downstream processes in the sense of digital impact management. Only then does information become operable, meaning that it can be used in its digital form without human interaction.
Implement your digitalization strategy with PRO.FILE next
PROCAD is a valuable partner for your digitalization strategy. With PRO.FILE next, we have created a redesigned product generation to serve as a platform for the digitalization of your Product and Document Lifecycle Management (PDLM).
PRO.FILE next puts your product data and documents into a digital context, while enabling you to implement the PRO.CEED Best Practice Application Packages.
Comprehensive integration capabilities with powerful interfaces and APIs
Given that seamless processes can only be achieved through integration with other systems, PROCAD includes a host of interfaces and APIs that allow companies to leverage the platform’s intelligence from the outside. This includes capabilities to access data and functionality from a wide variety of devices and apps.
