ORCON Your software for Product Data Management PDM / PLM.

At first glance, digitalization in medium-sized companies sounds like a simple transition from state A to state B, from analog to digital. In practice, however, this process presents a complex challenge.

In particular, the organization between different departments and individual applications requires both a deep understanding of business processes and technical know-how of modern software and interface architecture.

Digitalization in medium-sized companies with Phoenix/PDM

„What is happening now [...] is the digitalization of manufacturing processes and the digitalization of processes between companies and customers. Here I think we are very, very good in some areas. [...] But we may not have made as much progress as we should in penetrating the mass of medium-sized companies.“

Speech by Angela Merkel at the Digital Summit on 4 December 2018 (German)

Today, the market offers a wealth of digital solutions for every challenge. However, integration into the product lifecycle (PLM) is rarely taken into account. In addition to its multi-CAD (Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidWorks, PTC Creo)  capability, Phoenix/PDM therefore also offers the option of integrating document management, ERP and CAx systems and correlating them with one another. Industry 4.0 means for us: the intelligent networking of your digital product data. In our Success Stories, you can find out how our customers successfully combine various applications in Phoenix/PDM in a profitable way.

ORCON GmbH can look back on several decades of experience from a multitude of product data management projects. Many of our customers started with an Engineering Data Management (EDM) solution. Phoenix/PDM now forms the backbone of the digital coordination system as a deeply integrated PLM system. As a reliable partner, we are always one ear to our customers and the other to innovations for our Phoenix/PDM.

In our CAD manufacturer-neutral and independent development the guiding principle applies:

„Phoenix/PDM is the made-to-measure suit off the rack“.

Our software has a modular structure and offers an enormous range of adjustable parameters. Although we offer a practice-oriented, standardized "out-of-the-box" solution, we can often map individual requirements by changing some configuration parameters. This saves expensive development effort and provides important stability for updates.
