Here you will find a short description of selected, up-to-date reference projects:
Buck Engineering & Consulting appointed DataSquare to perform an Oracle Agile PLM introduction. The company is developing a system that will accurately and automatically position patients in radiotherapy machines. This system is subject to the strict regulations relating to medical technology products, and must satisfy the requirements of FDA 510(k) and DIN EN ISO 13485. DataSquare implemented the Oracle Agile PLM industry solution for medical technology, which is specially designed to support approval procedures for medical products. It ensures that the therapy system is compliant with US and European provisions, and considerably simplifies the approval process. This lays the foundations for Buck Engineering & Consulting to launch their product quickly.
PLM IT Business wrote extensively on the project in a cover story. The German report entitled “PLM in der Medizintechnik: Wie aus kleinen Unternehmen Global Player werden” can be downloaded here.
For OneSubsea (formerly Cameron), DataSquare implemented an obsolescence management solution based on Oracle Agile PLM. As a manufacturer of high-pressure and safety equipment as well as control systems for deep-sea oil and gas production worldwide, the challenge for OneSubsea is that their extremely durable products contain electronic components with a significantly shorter service life. Our Oracle Agile PLM experts developed an obsolescence management tool that guarantees OneSubsea an accurate overview of products’ lifecycle status.
To do so, a variety of extensions were used to reconfigure Oracle Agile PLM with four core obsolescence management tasks: consolidating a range of product structure data from ERP and E-CAD, evaluating all parts on the basis of vitality data, updating vitality, datasheet or compliance information with database support, and consolidating this data with assessments by OneSubsea engineers. The tool therefore provides the customer with a vitality appraisal for entire operational projects, and identifies vitality problems and potential solutions at an early stage.
More information on obsolescence management and the solution implemented at OneSubsea is available in the German specialist article “Obsoleszenz-Management für ein längeres Produktleben”, published in the 2013/14 PLM supplement to IT&Production.
A German premium automobile manufacturer asked us to install Teamcenter 8.3. This task included the entire preparation of system specification, the setup of test and training environments, the definition of use cases and functional conditions as well as the definition of the data model and document classifications. Beyond that, PLM customizing and process training for power users and key users were included. Apart from that, DataSquare prepares the connection of a Chinese Teamcenter installation.
At one of the biggest tire manufacturers worldwide, our PLM specialists have taken over application support in product development. They are responsible for support services concerning Siemens Teamcenter 8 and 9 and work closely together with first-level support, as part of the onsite-team. We supervise not only the German headquarters in Hanover, but also the worldwide engineering locations of this client.
Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe, one of the world‘s leading companies for sustainable energy production, has settled for Aras Innovator as a comprehensive PLM solution for its new wind power division. DataSquare has implemented its system during the build-up of the whole department. Nowadays, Aras Innovator automates all coordination and release processes in engineering. Besides of managing all documents and CAD data, the PLM system controls the whole project management process. In this way all operations are being simplified, optimized and accelerated substantially.
Deutsche Blisterunion, the German service provider of patient-individual medical supplies charged DataSquare with the introduction of Aras Innovator in order to manage the manufacturing protocols of patient-individual blister packs completely digital. A special requirement was the necessity to approve the protocols with a qualified electronic signature. To make this possible, DataSquare solution architects developed the interface Aras Innovator Signature Connector. The digital control of review and release processes speeds up the whole process and allows the complete elimination of paper documents.
A detailed description of the implementation of Aras Innovator at the Deutsche Blisterunion you will find here.
Entrusted by Diehl Service Modules (formerly Mühlenberg Interiors), a company producing aircraft interior fittings situated in the city of Hamburg, Germany, Aras Innovator was deployed first-handedly for the document management of operating instructions and behavior regulations. In the second step, a solution was found for the requirements management which acted as the foundation for a change management following strict aviation regulations. The transition from formerly file-server based data management to the Aras Innovator solution made document administration more transparent, simplified processes and reduced time expenditure significantly.
Our client, a full service system supplier to leading car manufacturers, uses Aras Innovator as a PLM system throughout the world and has established its own development team to provide customization, software development and maintenance services. With its knowledge of Aras Innovator, DataSquare assists the on-site team in an advisory capacity and provides support during adjustments and enhancements to the system while it is running. We are also developing an automated test tool for customer-specific Aras Innovator applications.
As one of the worldwide leading manufacturers in aviation and aerospace, our client needed to control all changes in the manufacturing process of a military transporter concerning electrics, which was equally important for the client‘s side as well as the production side. This was necessary because customer whishes had to be closely coordinated with a whole variety of specialist and production departments, including all suppliers worldwide. Within the shortest amount of time, we initiated an appropriate Oracle database in order to make the data concerned available to all involved, via a web-based tool developed in C++.
DataSquare specialists assist one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers with the application support of his product development. Here they take over support tasks from Siemens NX5 and help with applications according to appropriate methods. They are part of the on-site team and work closely together with its first-level support. Not only the German headquarters, but also its worldwide affiliates are being looked after.
As a worldwide operating OEM in the aviation and aerospace industry, our client is exchanging several gigabytes of data with its associated subsidiaries and suppliers, on a daily basis. In order to guarantee a trouble-free exchange of data, our client needed several interfaces for his internal databases and software tools. Furthermore, data had to be converted in numerous ways according to customer specifications. Our software developers wrote different interfaces and converters in C, C++, PEARL and Python for MS SQL, MySQL as well as Oracle databases, and managed to link them up with internal software such as SAP, Windchill and VPM.
Our Client, a worldwide leading tire manufacturer, uses the PLM systems Teamcenter. We support him in all matters concerning specification, programming and enhancements for Teamcenter 8 and 9. DataSquare specialists are also responsible for maintenance, troubleshooting and user support, for several complex customer applications. Of special importance are a guaranteed trouble-free operation and a high level of availability. We are both responsible for the German headquarters and several locations worldwide.
A leading financial services company based in Hanover faced the problem of having various software systems in service, due to several acquisitions and mergers. To enable all employees to have access to the same data pool, we have developed a browser-based software for the internal archive system, all the while having to take into account the rights structure, which has been in use for years. The implementation of several user interfaces from different software products proved to be a special challenge, because this was crucial to ensure a high user acceptance. Our developers brought this project into being in Java and JSP for the query of a wide variety of IBM, DB2 and Oracle databases, and within the shortest amount of time.
As a leading manufacturer in the aerospace industry, our client had already a grown PLM structure. Several PDM and PLM systems ran alongside, in most different software programs. Contracted by this client, DataSquare has taken over the tasks 2nd and 3rd level support for the VPM system from Dassault and the software-related adjustments of various interfaces in C++.
Our client develops even the most different software packages for communications companies, which act on a global scale. Because of staff shortage, we were asked to supported this client with the development of software in C++ and Java on MS SQL and Oracle databases. The task in hand was to develop a control software for speech recognition, which leads the caller automatically to pre-defined phone loops or groups. At the same time, all relevant customer data had to be read from various databases via phone number recognition, to be displayed on screen in front of the operator.
As a leading aircraft manufacturer, our client was facing the challenge of not finding a finite element calculation software which met his requirements. Because of this, in many years of development a FEM software called ISAMI was created. Our task was to retrieve various data from worldwide data sources for Python and Visual Basic. Apart from that, our FEM software specialists further developed and adjusted single modules according to specifications made by the client.
Our client, the biggest manufacturer worldwide in aviation and aerospace, developed his own FEM software called ISSY based on Fortran in the nineteen-eighties. In 2006 it was decided that it had to be replaced by a more modern version called ISAMI. As the project plan was scheduled over a timespan of several years, both systems had to be used alongside each other. In order to be able to exchange data bidirectionally, DataSquare has developed an ISAMI/ISSY interface in Fortran and Python.
Over several decades our client, being part of the aviation and aerospace industry, has developed his own finite element calculation software ISSY. Although this tool has been replaced by its follow-up software in the meantime, it needs to be maintained as long as aircrafts are in use, which have been calculated by it. For our client we have taken over the worldwide maintenance of this tool in C and Fortran. Our FEM specialists are constantly adapting the calculation routines for new materials–composite, for instance–correct occurring errors and modernize the software step by step.
As a leading manufacturer in aviation and aerospace, our client works for decades now computer-aided, in a world of finite elements calculation. In the past, a tool used for calculation was Nastran/Patran. In the past, a vast variety of digital information was saved in Nastran databases. Therefore, DataSquare took over the task to retrieve this data via C++ and Java, first converting it referring to specifications made by the client and then to make it available again via FEM calculation tools, automatically.
