Complete and high-quality Bill of Material data help producing customer orders quickly and as error-free as possible

At DOLL Fahrzeugbau GmbH, the PLM system Teamcenter is the leading system for creating new master data and parts lists

 

Challenges

  • Very high customer requirements for data quality and documentation effort (especially in the military sector)
  • After the introduction of the new interface between Teamcenter and ERP, which contributes to the improvement of information for PLM users, the data volumes, which are automatically synchronized upon release, increase immensely
  • Ensure that all relevant data is available and correctly filled in before transferring from the PLM to the ERP system - which can be very extensive and time-consuming in the case of manual checking

Goals

  • Significant simplification of checking efforts through automated validation of Teamcenter data with BCT CheckIt
  • Reduction of the error frequency
  • Early error detection in the release workflow

 

"If the designers had to check the data without BCT CheckIt, it would take a lot more time."

Thomas Hoferer
PLM- & CAD-Administrator

Lessons Learned

  • Through data synchronization between the PLM and ERP systems, data is automatically exchanged upon release. This means that the data is consistent in both systems and the time required for this is minimized
  • Before transferring the data to the ERP system, BCT CheckIt checks whether all relevant data fields have been filled in correctly
  • BCT CheckIt routines can be integrated into the Teamcenter release workflow or even switched on beforehand to allow the user a test run
  • Significant savings in manual checking effort
  • Less administrative intervention required
  • Avoidance of error costs due to inconsistent data
