- Reducing development effort
- Improving design quality
- Using change management
- Managing PLM process
OKB Aerospace engineers tested several commercial CAD and PLM systems, considering a lot of factors, such as user experience and close integration between PLM and CAD.
To be competitive, we needed to reduce development time and costs, which required us to introduce CAD and PLM systems on a large scale. The primary selection criteria for us were customization capabilities, technical support and ease of implementation. -Ilya Pizik, IT Department Head
We considered multiple CAD systems for the highly special tasks our designers perform. Yet, most of the systems we tested lack the capabilities we need. Among the systems that did meet our requirements, NX offered the best performance and value. -Ilya Pizik, IT Department Head
We are establishing business processes that meet company needs, customer demands and regulatory requirements. We decided to not only implement NX as a CAD system for developing digital mockups, but also Teamcenter as a product data management (PDM) system to establish a virtual development environment. It was important to customize the system to fit our organization and activities. We used Teamcenter to manage collaboration, streamline the multi-user development process and introduce the concurrent design approach to improve design efficiency and product quality. -Ilya Pizik, IT Department Head
