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.

Product structures and bills of materials

Bill of materials are important documents in the production process and must be available and up-to-date at any time.

The transfer of bills of materials to an ERP system often slows down the throughput and is susceptible to error. In addition, the growing number of variants makes it increasingly difficult to maintain an up-to-date overview of the product structures. PRO.FILE supports you in creating, maintaining and updating the bills of materials within your company.
PRO.FILE accelerates your processes through the intelligent management of bills of materials.

The added value of PRO.FILE:

  • PRO.FILE automatically creates bills of materials from CAD and keeps them up-to-date during the life cycle.
  • PRO.FILE automatically exchanges bills of materials with the ERP system after approval.
  • PRO.FILE visualises and structures the product structure and translates it into bills of materials to be adjusted and compared with variants and earlier versions.
    Results:
  • Non-productive hours and errors as a result of incorrect parts lists are avoided.
  • Connecting Engineering to Logistics is seamless and smooth.

The PRO.FILE parts lists give you complete insight into your product structures. You can compare differences between the parts lists with the BOM Compare Module of PRO.FILE. At a glance you have an overview of the differences between the versions and variants of a product.
