Sinfonia Technology Selects PTC Windchill to Improve Efficiency, Expand Team Collaboration, and Connect Disparate Systems

PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced from the sold-out LiveWorx® 18 digital transformation conference that Sinfonia Technology Co., Ltd., has selected the PTC Windchill® product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to improve operational efficiency, time-to-market, quality, and team collaboration at its Clean Transport Equipment Factory at its Toyohashi facility.
Established in 1917, Sinfonia is a major industrial equipment manufacturer that focuses on semiconductors, aerospace, automobiles, and medical devices. The Clean Transport Equipment Factory that will implement Windchill manufactures load parts, or in-process transport equipment, used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment, equipment front-end modules (EFEM) and vacuum platform. It is the world’s top load parts producer delivering load parts to major equipment manufacturers worldwide.As demand for semiconductor devices increases worldwide, Sinfonia’s implementation of Windchill will enable the company to streamline the design of standard products that account for 90 percent of its sales, quickly develop new products, and accelerate bill of materials (BOM) transformation between engineering and manufacturing. Historically, Sinfonia created manual BOMs in its design support and drawing release processes. These processes were time-consuming due to manual entries. They were also error-prone, as the BOMs, 2D drawings, and 3D models were not linked, causing updates to be overlooked and leading to a significant amount of time searching for information in the change management systems. Also, the data was not centrally managed, and the ways in which teams worked and shared information was inefficient, inhibiting workload balancing and flexible resource assignments.
To solve these issues and to efficiently manage its EBOM and MBOM process flow, Sinfonia invested in Aras Innovator as its PLM solution and SAP for ERP. However, Aras was unable to support requirements from Sinfonia’s Clean Transport Equipment group and required extensive customization, preventing Sinfonia from going live as scheduled. The Sinfonia team began looking for a replacement solution that would enable them to transform their processes and implement an easy-to use system for their design engineers. The team at the Clean Transport Equipment plant decided to switch the PLM system to Windchill as they were confident it would enable design engineers to easily access the functionality and product data they need.Sinfonia has already completed the first phase of its rollout of Windchill and will soon expand its use of the products to include other modules, as well as connect Windchill to SAP. Its future roadmap for digital transformation includes improving field service operations with smart, connected products and services, as well as augmented reality.
