PDMLink, which is designed to ease the complexity of PDM (product data management) systems, can be deployed in as little as five weeks, said Tom Marnick, vice-president of PDM solutions at Parametric.
"This makes it easy for people who haven't been able to benefit from PDM systems to participate in the product development process more effectively," Marnick said.
"By clicking on a part number, I'm instantly getting a viewable that that number represents. Browsing product information ... is really as easy as surfing the Web."
To supplement the Quick Start technology implementation package, PTC's enterprise consulting partners, such as Accenture, Andersen, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Computer Sciences, Deloitte Consulting, Hewlett-Packard, KPMG, and TRW, will offer complementary service offerings to ensure that enterprises make full use of Windchill throughout their business processes.
PDMLink will be generally available next month.
