Increasing process efficiencies for clients
EPLAN and Dassaults Systèmes have announced they have entered into a technology partnership as part of the EPLAN Partner Network, whereby both parties will be working on expanding the interface between EPLAN and the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The goal is seamless integration of electrical engineering and fluid-power technology in the context of product development.
Dassault Systèmes Managing Director Eurocentral Dominic Kurtaz and EPLAN & Cideon CEO Sebastian Seitz signed the agreement in Hanover, Germany. The partners say they will beneficially be contributing their expertise in the interests of their shared clients, thereby enabling companies to set up end-to-end digital development processes.
Seitz explains: “With the bidirectional interface between the EPLAN Platform and the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we’re increasing the process efficiencies of our common clients. When all systems are bidirectionally connected – ECAD, ERP and PDM, for instance – users are workly in a truly interdisciplinary manner and thus much more efficiently.”
“With this partnership, we support our joint customers in achieving new dimensions of efficiency and productivity when it comes to holistic product development based on the creation and capitalization of virtual twins,” adds Kurtaz, “The bidirectional interface simplifies numerous processes and creates new collaboration opportunities for our customers. We are therefore delighted to take this groundbreaking step together with EPLAN.”
The partnership will be expanded in the coming months. Both companies say theyare working in tandem to further optimise the interface – the PLM 3DEXPERIENCE Connector – and provide new solutions for digital product development in the cloud environment. A joint demonstration environment is also planned as part of the Engineering Collaboration Network (www.ecn-online.com) with videos and sample data in the PLM cloud environment, as well as joint interaction on customer projects.
