At this year's EDM CAE Forum, CONTACT Software shows how efficient collaboration across company boundaries can be realized.
Mergers and alliances are becoming more and more important for companies. A decisive success factor for development cooperation is a data and process management that makes secure and efficient work across companies possible.
CONTACT Software presents an example of digital data and process management based on a merger of different companies or organizational units. The aim is to connect existing heterogeneous systems using a collaboration hub and thus make the data available regardless of where it originates and without interfering the existing architecture. This lecture is titled "Collaboration Hubs: PLM Coupling and Contractor Portals for Joint Engineering".
The presented solution uses the CONTACT Elements platform and links different forms of partner and supplier integration with modern PLM technologies. This includes fast on- and off-boarding of partners for cross-company workflows in interaction with specialized applications such as parts lists, CAD data and document management.
This year's motto of the Daimler EDM CAE Forum is "Communicating. Cooperate. Inspire." In the context of specialized lectures the newest technologies and innovations of the automotive industry are presented. In addition, the exhibition offers an insight into current EDM and CAE topics.
The event will take place from 17 to 18 July 2019 at the ICS of the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre. CONTACT Software can be found at booth A228-229. Further information on the event can be found here.
