How we support you in PLM integration – Our service portfolio

With us, your integration project is in good hands – right from the outset. We start off with a specification workshop in which we define the exact project requirements together with your stakeholders – an exercise during which our preconfigured integration scenarios act as guiderails. This description of typical business processes is the ideal starting point for determining the finer details of the integration solution for your specific business model. 

Our consultants possess wide-ranging experience and a deep understanding of the entire product development and product lifecycle process. Aspects that will be addressed by our teams throughout include:  

  • Administration of multi-CAD data
  • BOM management
  • Master data management
  • Document management
  • Configuration management and variant management 
  • Quality data management
  • Production planning and execution

We ensure that all of your stakeholders are on the same page at all times, yet strive to prevent communication overload. Integration projects are highly complex and dynamic undertakings, and our approach ensures that we meet these challenges together. From the start, we keep the discussion highly topical, relying on live demonstrations of our integration scenarios, using 3DEXPERIENCE integration with ERP systems like SAP und Microsoft Dynamics 365 as the basic model. 

During the subsequent implementation project, our IT experts adapt the preconfigured use cases and business objects to the specific requirements of your business. Commissioning is usually achieved via a series of sprints, with your key users validating the results of each sprint in a test environment. Following successful user acceptance testing and release to you as our customer, your solution is ready for productive use. 

As integration software, we deploy our in-house developments 3DEXPERIENCE Business Process Integrator and 3DEXPERIENCE SAP Integration. No matter whether you plan to operate the integration solution in the cloud or at your premises: You remain flexible, can choose to scale as needed and continue to follow your IT strategy. 

In the event that we also assume operation of the solution under a SaaS agreement (software as a service), this will include all operative tasks such as incident management, problem management, change management and release management of the integration service at an attractive fixed rate. This lets you ensure that the customization required by release updates of any of the integrated systems are managed proactively and your product creation processes continue to run smoothly throughout. CENIT’s all-inclusive cloud operating model offers full cost transparency and minimal internal IT work input. Now is the time to build connections that correspond to your business model and ensure successful product creation.
