Capturing and controlling product information is critical to your company’s success. But once you’ve secured your data, how do you coordinate the use of that information throughout each step of your product lifecycle?
Windchill PDMLink centralizes information sources. By consolidating scattered islands of information, Windchill PDMLink brings order to chaotic change processes and speeds the development of new product configurations. And its unparalleled visualization capabilities ensure that individuals anywhere in the organization are able to review complex product information in meaningful terms.
With Windchill PDMLink, you now have unprecedented control of data throughout your product’s lifecycle. When combined with Windchill Enterprise Systems Integration (ESI) software, you can also control the flow of product information to your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system during key release-to-manufacturing processes.
