DEP42CA - Where In The World Is My Motor? PLM for Global Assemblies

Assemblies for power tools can have motors from Germany, switches from Holland, housings from Mexico, can be assembled in Malaysia, and packaged in Arkansas. PDMLink's "Team", "Role", and "Product" features are the only safe way to provide the access, changeability, protection, and reuse needed to produce cost, time, and resource effective assemblies. The recent addition of non-Creo geometry to assemblies makes PLM control even more necessary for reliable data models. This presentation will demonstrate how Bosch Power Tools takes current data and blends that reuse data in new, innovative tool assemblies across countries, languages, and standards. Using the configuration drivers: power source, mechanism, holding method, and attachment method, we first identify what we are looking for.
