  1. They were looking for reducing design cycle time by 20%
  2. Needed capability to reduce variant design time by 30 to 50 %
  3. Better utilization of Data from Marcopolo (Collaborator)
  4. Wanted to utilize global design library

Batch utility for PDM-PLM integration


  1. Designers can spend more time on design and detailing
  2. No need to manually create documents in PLM and attaching drawings
  3. Ease in searching and reusing components
  4. Ease in capturing metadata
  5. No Difference in PDM and Drawing Data
  6. Able to use parametric features of SolildWorks
    – BOM creation helps reduce time and errors
    – Re-use and modification of data is easy
    – Search and Reuse
