Automotive

Having the right sized solution at just the right time is critical in managing an efficient automotive supply chain.  We have been providing secure scalable solutions for OEM clients through Tier 2 for more than 25 years solving various supply chain challenges from “creation to commerce”.

 

We engage with industry associations such as Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) as well as the European standard setting organizations ODETTE and Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) to keep current with industry trends including OFTP2 standards.

Design Data Management

Dealing with large amounts of design data can be a slow and cumbersome process expending resources on non-core activities.  We help keep the designers and engineers doing what they do best by automating file transfers between their CAD and PLM systems reducing the complexity of data exchange and supply chain collaboration.

 

We also provide several OEMs with a private community for secure large file exchange primarily CAD/CAM data files.

 

Our solutions address global standards including ENGDAT, ENGPART, ODETTE, VDA, and connections to ENX and ANX.
