Case Study

Significantly reduced approval workflow complexity at Vitra

Time is money - with highly innovative products, time-to-market plays a decisive role. 

With BCT CheckIt to simple and secure processes



To remain competitive in a dynamic market, process reliability must be increased in order to avoid errors.

  • Reduced "time-to-market" for highly innovative products
  • Improve productivity and shorten development time
  • Create process reliability while maintaining workflow performance
  • Various checks must be carried out at Vitra, such as: attribute check (e.g. item ID pattern), change text; check of the revision counter; owner group of the items.



Vitra's guiding principle is to create innovative products and concepts with leading designers.

  • Quick reaction to increasing customer requirements and current trends
  • Higher automation of the release workflows through BCT CheckIt
  • Simplify the workflows
  • User-friendly and comprehensible release process
“With BCT CheckIt, we replaced a very complex release workflow construct that had grown over the years. The release workflows were getting slower and slower.  [...] BCT CheckIt offers significantly better possibilities here.“

Michael Haun
CAD/PLM Systems Manager


Lessons Learned

  • For many interrelated release workflows, the Teamcenter workflow handlers are only suitable to a limited extent. BCT CheckIt offers significantly better possibilities here
  • BCT CheckIt offers easier handling, better clarity and improved speed for approval workflows
  • User-friendliness is the main focus of BCT CheckIt. Any errors are already identified via various checks before the start of the workflow. The users then receive a comprehensible error log and can make corrections.
