Integration with manufacturing robots might be the next PLM challenge

Integration with manufacturing robots might be the next PLM challenge

Integration is one of the most painful aspects of PLM deployment and implementations. Especially when you need to integrate engineering, manufacturing planning and shopfloor systems. Usually it comes down to large number of data synchronization between each and every system in the loop. Integration failures can slow production process and…

PLM and a future of deep linking

PLM and a future of deep linking

I like links. The things about links are fascinating. It is about connection between products, people, companies and things. The nature of our life today is to stay connected. Therefore links are important. It is natural to see links appearing everywhere in engineering and manufacturing too. Think about a product and its…

How PLM can avoid cloud integration spaghetti?

How PLM can avoid cloud integration spaghetti?

Enterprise integration is a messy space. It is always complex – applications, databases, new and legacy systems, complexity of requirements. People usually need to run at least dozen of applications to run things smoothly. It is never done out-of-the-box and it is always requires circles of implementations and professional services….

Web and DIY Future of PLM Integrations

Web and DIY Future of PLM Integrations

Application integrations is a complicated topic. Especially when it comes to enterprise. I can confirm decades of different attempts to simplify integration tools and create an easy way build integrations. If you are long enough in enterprise software domain, you can probably remember the variety of buzzwords like EAI (Enterprise Application…

PLM and the Evolution of Integration

PLM and the Evolution of Integration

Integration is an important topic in PLM. Few days ago, I was reading Aras’ blog – Understanding of integration and federation with Aras. This blog caught my attention by review of different PLM integration patterns – integration and federation. Despite the fact, it is a very self-promotional message, I found…

PLM Integration Failures

PLM Integration Failures

There is one topic that always raises lots of controversy, in my view. I’m talking about integrations or even more specifically about PLM-oriented integration. I want to point on the following two articles I posted previously about PLM integrations: PLM Integration Gotchas PLM and Enterprise Integraton Game I read Reasons…

PDM vs. PLM: An Integration Perspective

I’m continuing discussions about PDM vs. PLM differences. I’d encourage you to take a look on my previous two posts related to this topic: PDM vs. PLM: A Data Perspective and PDM vs. PLM: A Process Perspective. My next PDM vs. PLM comparison perspective is related to integration of PDM…

CAD-BOM Missing Links

CAD-BOM Missing Links

One of the interesting trends in PLM is growing amount of vertical integrations between components of PLM portfolio. The following Razorleaf blog cough my attention earlier this week- Dassault Published V6R2011. Here is the quote from Razorleaf blog pointing on the specific feature that, in my view, requires additional discussion:…
