PLM systems are one of the most common systems used by clients in the manufacturing industries and they often need to provide information to various departments in a company.
Sharing information from PLM systems, generating analytics and statistics or performing even more advanced tasks like a geometric similarity search can be very cumbersome, especially for non-PLM users who should gain access to the information without compromising security.
For this, customers utilize Enterprise Search applications, which rely on indexing data stored in many different formats and systems across the company. Therefore, the more an index is able to access various sources, the longer the list of interested consumers will be.
Following a dedicated security concept, PLM systems especially provide:
- Product structure information, parts and related geometry data, supplementary documents
- Lifecycle states, change management objects (e.g. ECR, ECO)
- Related non-product information (e.g. project, team, user, etc.)
The T-Systems EXALEAD OnePart Connectors expose this data to the Enterprise Search Engine EXALEAD OnePart (Dassault Systèmes), which is used primarily in mechanical industries (Automotive, Aerospace and Defence, Shipbuilding) by persons needing to search and aggregate information across multiple source systems.
Connected to the PLM system, the EXALEAD OnePart Connectors transfer a defined scope of the data stored in the PLM system with EXALEAD OnePart, in order to utilize the indexing and search capabilities with EXALEAD OnePart.
The connectors may also be used in context of EXALEAD CloudView.
The EXALEAD OnePart Connectors are available for the PDM/ERP systems EnoviaVPM V4, SAP, Teamcenter, and Windchill.
EXALEAD OnePart combines web-scale semantic technologies, rapid drag-and-drop application development and hybrid quantitative/qualitative analytics to deliver a consumer-style information experience to mission-critical business processes.
With EXALEAD OnePart enterprise IT organizations now meet demands for real-time, in-context, accurately-delivered information, accessed from diverse web and enterprise big data sources, yet delivered faster and with less cost than with traditional application architectures.
The T-Systems EXALEAD OnePart Connectors leverage EXALEAD OnePart capabilities on top of the PLM system data:
- extract more value from existing digital assets
- secure IT investments
- scale in steps with increasing data volumes
- adapt to dynamically evolving sources and use cases
- always keep data up-to-date
