Dear Sir or Madame,

the current circumstances have brought about substantial changes to everyday life. Social distancing and other restrictions have been rather difficult to take on, prompting the cancellation of almost all trade fairs and events in the upcoming months. The chance to network and exchange ideas has been challenged, but despite the changes, new possibilities and opportunities have emerged. To support you during your time working from home, we are offering a variety of webinars and online seminars on a wide range of topics from the areas of CAD, PLM and systems engineering. One thing which has become clear from the current situation is how important digitization is for each of us and how it can also be utilized by companies to enhance productivity. Don’t miss out on the chance to do so!

Windchill Navigate Extensions

Windchill Navigate Extensions - Single/Multilevel, Cost & Service BOMs and Technical Data Packages creation by Navigate Apps

With Navigate Apps for Windchill, users across the company are given easy, role-based access to the data they need for their tasks and work steps. As a result, significant increases in productivity and efficiency are achievable as Windchill specialists do not have to use their time to search for data or make it available. Navigate Apps were newly developed with functional extensions to provide the user with specific BOMs (single / multilevel, cost and service BOMs), as well as the interactive creation and possibility to download technical data packages quickly and easily.

MaxxDB/Solidworks - Windchill Data Migration of 400.000 CAD objects in less than 4 Months from Commissioning to Go Live

Data migrations are always a challenge, let alone the migration of 3D CAD data into a PLM system. Yet, the migration experts from the Software Factory have just successfully completed another migration project - MaxxDB/Solidworks - Windchill - with our SF Migration Factory without downtime for the users. 400,000 Solidworks CAD objects, including the entire history, were migrated within a four-month period, spanning from commissioning to going live. According to our client’s statement, the engineering designers have almost reached the productivity of the old system after two weeks with Solidworks in Windchill. Additionally, the quality of the migrated CAD and metadata has been rated as high.
If you are also planning to migrate CAD data from third-party and legacy systems to Windchill; or mergers, acquisitions and divestitures are on your agenda: we are able to help out!
