PTC Extends Windchill PLM Platform by Integrating Requirements, Systems and Software Engineering Capabilities

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 11 giugno 2019

PTC (NASDAQ:PTC) today announced from the sold-out LiveWorx®19 digital transformation conference the enhancement of its Windchill® product lifecycle management (PLM) platform with integrated software management and systems engineering capabilities. The addition of these key technologies enables full product traceability and provides stakeholders with key insights throughout the product development and manufacturing cycles.
Today’s smart, connected products require manufacturers to harmonize mechanical and electrical components with software. Cumbersome, old processes and out-of-date technologies provide poor visibility, and often require duplicate entry and thwart timely business decisions.To address these challenges, Windchill now includes built-in linking and tracing between its native product data management capabilities and systems engineering, requirements management, source code management, and testing – powerful capabilities inherent in the current Integrity™ products, which will be rebranded under Windchill.
This comprehensive view of PLM enables designers to identify dependencies, view design progress, and understand improvements and exceptions. PTC is uniquely positioned to provide this extended PLM solution as it is the only leading PLM vendor with all these lifecycle collaboration products under one roof.Core to the enhanced offering, PTC is using OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration), an OASIS industry standard, to integrate its Integrity application lifecycle management and systems engineering brand into Windchill. In addition, PTC is also extending PLM linking and tracing with its ThingWorx® Flow solution for collaboration.The enhanced Windchill platform is expected to be available this summer, while the Integrity Lifecycle Manager and Integrity Modeler products will be rebranded later this year.

It will be available as an add-on to the STEMscopes program and available to K-12 schools and districts in Spring 2019. In addition, new instructional videos will be added to the existing digital STEM curriculum using BBC footage throughout 2020.The BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit has produced unparalleled global landmark programs such as Blue Planet I & II, Planet Earth I & II, Frozen Planet and Hidden Kingdoms. It remains committed to huge creative ambition, discovering ever more about our natural world, with production values, skills and specialist knowledge that are second to none.Coupled with the BBC’s powerful story-telling and stunning video capabilities, the new instructional video content from Accelerate Learning, is primed to inspire and excite students in the classroom. Both products will be developed to instill a sense of wonder, curiosity, and discovery in students while teaching the foundations of scientific literacy and understanding. Students will be able to experience a world of wonders and current science events directly in the classroom.
“We are thrilled to partner with BBC Learning to help us continue to improve our curriculum and create new real-world, relevant, and job related learning experiences for the students we serve,” said Dr. Vernon Johnson, President and CEO of Accelerate Learning. “BBC programs such as Planet Earth, Africa and Life have been the gold-standard for over a decade in captivating audiences and bringing us the ability to see into unknown and sometimes undiscovered worlds. Having the ability to incorporate the world-class programming and educational assets of BBC Learning into our curriculum, we can help students make real-world connections to and deepen their understanding of STEM, why it matters, and most importantly deliver a love of science.”
Incubated at Rice University and developed by Accelerate Learning, STEMscopes PreK-12 is built from the ground up to address the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and today’s state standards. It combines an award-winning digital curriculum, supplemental print materials, and ready-made exploration kits with a 24/7 professional development portal to support and propel student and teacher success. STEMscopes can be implemented in traditional, blended, and 1:1 classrooms as a core or supplementary science curriculum.

Grant County Public Utility District Launches Accruent Engineering Information Management Solution

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 giugno 2018

Accruent, the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions, announced today that Grant County Public Utility District, has launched Accruent’s engineering information management solution to manage its growth in the inventory of documents, including more than tens of thousands of engineering drawings.Grant County Public Utility District (Grant PUD) was established in 1938 to provide power service to all county residents in the central part of Washington State. Today, Grant PUD serves approximately 40,000 customers and has the capacity to generate more than 2,100 megawatts of clean, renewable energy. Grant PUD’s Vision 2021 plan emphasizes data-based decision making – an approach to sustain the affordable rates and economic opportunity that locally-owned and controlled hydropower has brought to Grant County.“While Grant PUD is a mid-size utility, we have the needs of a much bigger utility,” said Susy Anderson, ECM Project Manager, Grant Public Utility District. “Implementing Accruent’s solution helps our teams to work collaboratively, complete assignments efficiently, and manage compliance with federal regulations.” Initially, three departments – Power Production Engineering; Transmission, Substation and Automation; and Telecommunications – will use the software. One of the key capabilities for Grant PUD was more security and control for their Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) documents. As a power company, they must follow the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards which are federal regulations related to the security of critical assets.
“Implementing technology advancements was a key initiative for Grant PUD to support its growth,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “Accruent’s solutions can help utilities like Grant PUD become even more efficient, reducing costs and rework to provide even greater value to their customers.”In addition, Accruent’s solution helps Grant PUD by supporting concurrent engineering, integrating with IBM® Maximo® for maintenance management, and offering role-based security, workflow and approval, version and revision control, data backup, multiple search capabilities, and the ability to view engineering drawings without AutoCAD. Using Accruent’s solution, Grant PUD can increase management visibility, provide better security and control of their CIP documents, reduce project timelines, and improve project performance.IBM and Maximo are trademarks of International Business Machines Corp., registered in many jurisdictions worldwide.
