Bluestar PLM by PDM technology is proud to present the new light version product: “CAD/ERP LINK” – The missing link that provides data exchange between Engineering and Operations.
In today’s cloud-based software world, companies are flooded with increased data-accessibility requirements to stay competitive. Until now, SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD users and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (ERP) users were forced to work separately in these detached systems. However, engineers need to be able to access ERP data to combine it with their CAD drawings and keep designs up-to-date, and ERP users need to access real-time CAD drawings and BOM data. By manually entering data, the data becomes error-prone and unreliable. When inconsistent master data is being used within an organization, a variety of problems begin to emerge. CAD data is a key component of product design which supports several downstream processes, so any errors inevitably trickle down through the enterprise. Without establishing systems to enable seamless data exchange and effective collaboration across systems and departments, companies risk losing their edge. For those reasons and more, many companies are in search of solution that effectively enables enterprise-wide access to information. A common solution to these problems has been to implement a full-scale PLM solution. However, the implementation process is a lengthy and complex project. That’s why we’ve developed a simpler solution that is just as effective.
Take advantage of cloud-based data with CAD/ERP LINK
Introducing CAD/ERP LINK by PDM Technology, featuring seamless SOLIDWORKS interface integration. Bring enterprise-level mobility to key processes in your organization. CAD/ERP LINK is easily adaptable to meet your specific business needs. Integrating your ERP and CAD applications helps people do their jobs. Leverage all your CAD Data with bi-directional data transfer between these two systems. With CAD/ERP LINK, all CAD data and documents are automatically linked to corresponding parts and are linked to the item numbering in the ERP system. ERP users are granted access to relevant CAD data, including the PDFs of the latest drawings. This solution provides secure and consistent management of the archive, change, and creation of data from SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and integration with Dynamics 365 makes it available across the enterprise. This lightweight product bridges the gap between SOLIDWORKS and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Our solution features a quick and easy implementation process. By using a single enterprise-wide system for all engineering data, you will reduce unforced errors and delays, support product development and collaboration, and boost engineering efficiency.
Bluestar PLM by PDM Technology is an advanced PLM system that is fully-embedded inside Dynamics 365fO. Bluestar PLM includes several internal modules, which are combined in various ways according to the customer-specific needs.
