Boeing Defense Australia uses OpenPDM MIGRATE for its transition to a new PLM environment

Boeing Defense Australia plans to replace its heterogeneous development landscape, consisting of various MatrixOne systems, with a unified PLM system. The choice was given to 3DEXPERIENCE.

Boeing Defense Australia plans to replace its heterogeneous development landscape, consisting of various MatrixOne systems, with a unified PLM system. The choice was given to 3DEXPERIENCE. As is usual for large companies with complex products and many users, the PLM migration project is significant and vital to the success of the overall project: the 3DEXPERIENCE roll-out.

So far so good. For us, this is not a technical peculiarity. We have been involved in many, large PLM migrations and are used to dealing with these special challenges. The special features for us in relation to this project result from the mixture of:

  • A company from the defense sector
  • The company headquarters in Australia
  • Restrictions imposed on us by the COVIT-19 pandemic. 

Without COVIT-19, we would have been operating with a team in Australia. Given the pandemic restrictions, this was not possible. Default concepts for remote work and access to an environment with productive data are not allowed with regards to the sensitivity of the data. This left no other option than to enable the Boeing team in an early project phase to configure OpenPDM MIGRATE themselves and subsequently perform the various migrations themselves. For this purpose, we trained the Boeing team and continue to accompany them within the framework of 2nd level support.

 

Despite the many adversities consisting of the pandemic, the entry into OpenPDM MIGRATE for Boeing, the many time zones between Germany and Australia, etc., the cooperation is running very successfully. We are no friends of COVIT-19 but in this case the pandemic has imposed constraints on us that have led to a completely different, new way of working. The successes of this project and others like it will certainly lead to new, promising collaboration models being established and continuing after the pandemic.
