_PLM Integration experience
SAP and other ERPs
Integration of a PLM solution with a downstream ERP system is critical to fully benefit from PLM features. PTC Windchill has several options to address this type of connectivity including: Enterprise Systems Integratoin (ESI) – a comprehensive product integrating Windchill with SAP and Oracle Manufacturing, allowing publication of product and manufacturing data on product release. This is a preferred option for integrating with SAP and Oracle Manufacturing platforms.
Alternatively, ERPConnector is a Windchill framework allowing publishing of product data upon release and is a good starting point for building a robust integration. This would be a good option for ERP systems other than SAP or Oracle Manufacturing.
TT PSC has extensive experience in building ERP integrations using both ESI and EPRConnector.
It is crucial during product development to ensure compliance of its components with environmental regulations. For that to happen Windchill needs to be integrated with a product compliance system, as it’s not intended to manage environmental compliance on its own. At the same time Windchill should be able to display compliance information so that product engineers can make relevant choices based on this data. With development halted on PTC’s former product compliance system – Windchill Product Analytics – a new PTC recommended product compliance platform has been introduced: Assent Compliance Platform.
TTPSC was proud to be the team implementing the integration between these two systems, ensuring a seamless transition for existing WPA customers and easy uptake for new ones.

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
PLM is not only about CAD and BOM. The awareness of the importance of integrating PDM/PLM and ALM tools is growing, and the value it brings (improvement of cross-functional team collaboration or easier management of requirements changes, to name only the most obvious) are becoming critical. PTC offers an OSLC standard-based integration witch allows you to link artifacts from Windchill PDMLink and RV&S.
We would be happy to help you install and configure these systems for optimal performance.
The ThingWorx Industrial Innovation Platform is a best-in-class IoT Platform. ThingWorx was created to connect, aggregate, analyze and display data – from devices scattered around the world, machines on the production line in the factory, through other enterprise systems existing in an organization’s IT landscape.
All this to facilitate work, accelerate processes, reduce costs and ensure continuous access to to one of your most important resources – data.

- User and Administrator training
- Creating custom training materials, user guides, how-to guides, troubleshooting and maintenance guides etc.
_Integration - workshops
We will start with an initial requirements workshop (lasting between 1 and 3 days), after which we will draft the first solution concept with high level solution approach for main areas (what will be published by which system, triggered by what events, what types of data, etc.) and a ROM estimate. We strongly recommend a workshop-driven, prototype-based, agile-iterative approach when building any PLM integration. This means we recommend:
- Dividing the project into smaller functional areas
- Not scoping and designing the entire integration at the beginning, but rather designing general concepts and then detailing step by step.
Following workshops are scheduled to detail further integration areas:
- Part integration
- BOM integration
- ECN integration
- Document integration
After each workshop each area is detailed (data mappings, business logic, etc) and we start implementation early.
