While corporations focus on product innovation, they also need to consider their products' environmental impact and the product development process. Sustainability helps to balance modernization, improve our quality of life and protect our planet and environment for our future generations. For businesses to thrive, sustainability can no longer be delegated to an individual or a special team. Sustainability is an integral strategy secured throughout the entire corporate strategy.

DELMIAWORKS is a Manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that is designed specifically for the factory setting to streamline the process and gain visibility and control from end-to-end. Some of the top industries including Aerospace, Assembly, Automotive, Food and Beverage and even Packaging are utilizing it to have a single platform to integrate inventory management, procurement, planning, sales, CRM, shipping, production, financing and even business intelligence. Let's take a deeper dive into each industry to see how they take advantage of DELMIAWORKS.
TriMech has developed a 12-phased approach to migrating data from one system to another. Typically, with PLM to PDM, we start off with a detailed analysis of the database. Then, we move on to the definition of what you are looking to do with your data. The complexity comes with all the features of a PLM system that a PDM system inherently does not have. Items, for instance, are records in the systems that may have a file, many files or no file associated with it. These have to be converted to a file-based system. There are several other types of PLM features that will need to be addressed.
Every now and then, a PDM user or vault administrator envisions a usage case that's just a bit outside the current PDM functionality, or possibly in a different wheelhouse altogether. This happens with the newly initiated, as well as software veterans. You'll use a feature and think, "If only there was a button to [insert idea here]."
Customers don't only come to TriMech to make a purchase, but also for advice and guidance to figure out the right solution that fits their business and meets their goals. Data management is an important aspect of these conversations because if you can't access your data it doesn't matter how great the software performs.
When we are working with companies who use SOLIDWORKS, the answer seems easy. Enterprise Data Solutions are the best way to manage design files. The conversation can quickly get challenging as we start throwing out more acronyms, and this is where I come in.
