PDM/PLM Competence Center – Aims and Objectives

Ever stiffer competition on the global marketplace necessitates drastic cut-backs in product creation time. Lack of interoperability in media, inadequate product integration and non-transparent workflows are all factors which cause a significant loss of time which can be avoided by use of PDM/PLM technology for virtual product creation. PDM/PLM technology enables uniform administration of product data and adequate integration of application systems. This is why the IPK’s PDM/PLM Center works to enhance the capabilities of PDM systems and secure the efficient introduction of PDM/PLM technologies to industrial enterprises. The two key areas on which activities at the PDM/PLM Center focus are:

  • Services for industrial companies in the selection and introduction of PDM systems
  • Research and development in the field of PDM/PLM technology
