Project and requirements management kept in one location.

Design new machine variants with reuse tools

When machines simply need an updated version because of changing customer or regulatory requirements, engineers can work from existing designs to make the next version.

PLM for Machine Builders allows users to create a machine clone, rename and renumber as needed, and users can even view parts and assemblies in 3D without the need for CAD.

See how quickly this can be accomplished in this short webinar clip highlighting the machine configuration and reuse tools available in PLM for Machine Builders.

Parts reuse accelerates the design process.
