Product and Document Lifecycle Management

From CAD data management to an end-to-end PLM solution, we are the right partner to turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s success

Document Management / DMStec

One Source of Truth for all your product related data and documents

Technical documents are an inherent part of your products, therefore making it crucial to have a single solution to manage them along with your product data. This creates a lifecycle file that contains all data for a particular product and accompanies it throughout its lifecycle. Modern lifecycle file management is characterized by its ability to give all department’s central access to data by storing it in a single location. You can even customize the views to meet the needs of your different departments. Through all this, the system will never create any duplicates, but rather store every document only once.

Your company builds products and each product has a product structure, doesn’t it therefore make sense to have a document and data management system that emulates your product structures?

DMStec provides an easy way to systematically manage your data by emulating your product structures. This means that you will always have the most current and up-to-date information at your fingertips and meet compliance guidelines, for example those associated with maintenance measures, technical rules, or approvals. What’s more, you can improve collaboration with your customers and operators by providing them with exactly the lifecycle files or machine files they want and need.


CAD Data Management

Centralized data management with multi-CAD support

Building quality products requires an organized and thoroughly structured process so shouldn’t your CAD and product related data and documents also be managed in an organized and thoroughly structured way?

By using CAD data management to centrally store your data:

  • you always know where a part belongs and how it is used in your company
  • you are always up to date and able to retrieve data in seconds
  • you can eliminate accidental overwrites of CAD data
  • you get to decide who works with what data

Are you using more than one CAD system?
Accelerate your development by unifying your CAD data management and user experience. PRO.FILE is a Product Data Backbone with multi-CAD capabilities that gives you a common data foundation across all CAD systems. Your mechatronics projects will benefit from the integration of your MCAD and ECAD systems. The CAD data management system supports integration with all major CAD systems.


Product Data Management (PDM)

An End to End solution linking your BOM data, CAD data and Product data and integrating them with your ERP system

PRO.FILE is a complete end-to-end Product Data Management solution enabling you to see the relationships between your product data and accompanying documents and emails, thus giving you visibility into your processes, customer satisfaction and compliance requirements.

  • Automatically synchronize your BOMs and project structures by integrating PRO.FILE with your ERP solution
  • Eliminate building wrong products due to working off a wrong version of a drawing
  • Eliminate BOM data entry mistakes and the associated challenges
  • Allow the shop floor to see the associated product data and documents within the same system
  • Reduce duplicate part numbers

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

Digital collaboration across the enterprise with product related data and documents

Control and automate your product lifecycle processes


Your company’s success is largely determined by the earning power of your projects and processes. You have to be able to coordinate the way you plan, control, and manage your product data and documents in a single system, in order to maximize the efficiency of your projects and processes.

PRO.CEED provides best practice application packages with the goal of reducing processing times by better coordinating your ongoing processes and projects and avoiding errors when it comes to interrelated process. With the PRO.CEED dashboard, information on the status of a project or process is always just a click away.

Use PRO.CEED to tie your task management to your product data and retrieve all data and documents that are relevant to a process or project from a single source. Reduce processing times by better coordinating your ongoing processes and projects and avoid errors when it comes to interrelated process. And with the PRO.CEED dashboard, information on the status of a project or process is always just a click away.

This probably sounds familiar: You are working on a development project and need to make short-notice changes. Manually coordinating the change process would simply take too long. This is where the task file for the change process comes into play. It helps you overcome this challenge by automating the PLM process for you. The system will automatically alert you of deviations. This allows you to stay on top of the change status at all times. Even better: It gives you the ability to automate parts of the process, such as sending documentation or creating an impact matrix (to determine the impact of the change).


Digitalized PLM is the pathway to digital products


The evolution of PLM in the enterprise
Today, PLM is an integrated discipline that covers the entire product lifecycle and is embedded across the enterprise, from requirements management to the processing of IoT data. It needs to take into account the information provided by the mechatronics disciplines, every step on the way. These product related pieces of information come together to describe the product as a digital information twin, which in turn is used to create the digital twin. Digital threads are established, enabling effective impact and change analysis across the product lifecycle. The digital thread feeds back information from the field to the product engineering processes.

The digital information twin
A lifecycle file that is populated with new information throughout the product lifecycle and contains product data and documents that mirror the technical structure of a product, plant or technical infrastructure is a “digital information twin”. It brings the information stored in the Product Data Backbone into a common context, creating an accurate picture of a piece of machinery or plant.


Collaborative PLM

The secure way to exchange technical documents with partners, customers, and suppliers throughout the product lifecycle

The optimization of your PLM processes does not stop at your company’s front door anymore. You need to think beyond company lines and implement seamless processes with partners, customers, and suppliers.

The way you collaborate with your business partners should ideally follow the same rules as your internal PLM processes. Many data exchange platforms fail to meet the expectations and requirements of manufacturing and engineering companies.

The virtual project rooms in PROOM allow you to assign and manage user authorizations, allowing you to determine exactly who can view, edit or exchange what data and documents. Activity logs are kept for each project room to ensure traceability.

The document exchange itself only takes a few clicks. Any changes to the documents are automatically synchronized – and you can even choose to have them synchronized directly to you desktop or your smartphone.


Do these challenges resonate within your company?


Every department stores their files in their own Data Silo – Finding the right documents timely, is a challenge

Copies are created. When you email a document to “x” people, everybody stores it in his/her storage silo. Where is the Single Source of Truth?

You struggle to find the actual/valid version or revision of a document

Getting all Emails, Documents, Product Data, Part Data, Articles, … consolidated into one ‘folder’, that is easily searchable and manageable is a challenge
