PLM and CAD-CAM access for Engineers

Manufacturing design and engineering is all about faster time to market and better production outcome control. That is why it remains critical that organizations offer a best-of-breed environment to their engineers. Exceed VA solutions create a centrally managed delivery channel for PLM and CAD-CAM applications, helping companies improve the productivity of their engineering task force, while maintaining control over their intellectual property.

PLM and CAD-CAM Access Challenges

Engineering and design is a demanding discipline which relies on an organization's ability to maximize the productivity of its engineers. There is no way that goal can be achieved however without a solid application infrastructure that offers both state-of-the art engineering applications and a performing way to access them. Unfortunately, while most companies have invested considerable money and efforts into their engineering applications, too few have taken the time to build the proper access infrastructure around them. Instead, they have deployed a slew of imperfect point applications to deliver PLM and CAD-CAM environments to their users resulting in:

  • Inefficient and cumbersome access to the design environment
  • Dissatisfied engineering population resulting in poor user adoption
  • Poor quality of application readability creating errors in the design projects
  • Lack of visibility and absence of centralized control over design application portfolio usage and access
  • Poor user experience over slower networks to the point of non-usability
  • No ability to quickly recover from infrastructure failure or disaster
