PRO.FILE Product Lifecycle Management; Manage and automate PLM processes

The success of your business is largely determined by the contribution that projects and processes make to the profitability of the company.
PRO.FILE is the no-nonsense solution for the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) process for industrial organizations and offers a company-wide solution for managing product data over the entire life cycle of the product (from design to end-of-life). PDM, PLM, DMStec and archiving in one system that organizes all your design and product data based on your own product structure and within which you yourself arrange how you manage and manage your documents. The basic components are an electronic vault / database for storing all product data, product structures and bills of materials and engineering data (CAD). Access to the data in it is done via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and is protected and controlled via user rights. By assigning digital lifecycles / workflows the status of the data is recorded and per document the possibilities are determined, for example whether it is allowed to make an overhaul or to make a change in the data. Because all information is stored in a database, the retrieval of data and reuse of parts is increasingly possible and more effective.

Change management

PRO.FILE coordinates the changes to and approval of CAD models, drawings and documents

In development projects it is quite normal that something has to be changed in the short term. This can even upset the most accurate calculation and the best planning. With manual change processes, the change can take quite some time. Job folders offer a solution here. They automate all processes for managing the product life cycle. Deviations are automatically reported by the system and the user sees the status of a change at any time. Steps in the change process, such as sending documents or generating an impact matrix (consequences of the change) can also be automated again. The real change costs are thus clear in an instant.

The PRO.FILE change process in accordance with Engineering Change methodologies (ECN / ECR / ECO).
The advantage for the entire organization is that adjustments and changes can be initiated in all departments and thus actually get a sequel. By using versions, revisions and statuses, changes to parts and products are tracked. Here, depending on the need, the history (audit trail) of the data can be kept up to date; who made a certain change when and for what reason. Afterwards, through reporting, you can always see what development a product has gone through. In this way knowledge is recorded and temporary employees or new employees can benefit from this available knowledge.

The added value of PRO.FILE:

  • Processes with flows for ECR, ECO and ECN document every change step.
  • PRO.FILE version and revision management ensures correct and current data throughout the process.
  • PRO.FILE process management and PRO.FILE Compliance ensure a guaranteed process run.
  • PRO.FILE supports the entire life cycle (PLM)!
