Mobile PLM in the dry dock
With its new PRO.FILE app from PROCAD partner 3mobility solutions GmbH, the Hamburg-based ship rudder manufacturer is digitizing its quality management work processes.
Becker Marine Systems GmbH, the world’s leading supplier of high-performance rudders in the maritime sector with headquarters in Hamburg, has been a PRO.FILE user from the very beginning. The company started with PROCAD 2D. PRO.FILE was initially used for pure CAD data management from Solid Works, but over the years the software’s focus has broadened more and more to its current use as a full-fledged PLM for managing product-related information flows throughout the product lifecycle. E-CAD data is also increasingly finding its way into the PLM system’s database via the new business field of “battery technology in the maritime environment”. Used as DMStec, PRO.FILE also maps the entire quotation phase. Extensive calculations regarding size, design, angle, etc. of a rudder are made in Excel and the results are transferred to the PLM system. This is the basis for the design, which then determines which material is required; the commercial process can be triggered.
