Integrating PDM, ERP, CRM and CAM systems using Design Automation

The Lino team’s many years of experience and methodological competence have made us a premium consultant able to integrate almost all Tacton Design Automation and Software Made by Lino® in existing systems (PDM, ERP, CRM, CAM).

PDM integration

Design automation solutions are seldom integrated independently of PDM systems. In most cases, it is essential that the design automation solution be integrated in existing company-specific processes in order to achieve maximum utility.

Typical requirements

  • How can the CAD models generated using the design automation solution be transferred to the PDM system with minimal overhead?
  • How can the numbering of the newly generated objects be generated automatically using the number ranges of the PDM system?
  • How can you prevent multiple instances of geometrically identical components from being generated and stored in the PDM system?
  • How can up-to-date information stored in the PDM system be accessed during the configuration process?
  • How can version and revision tracking of the rule set be optimally administered in the PDM system?

Software Made by Lino®-Produkte was developed to handle mainstream requirements of this type, e.g. For Solidworks PDM and keytech PLM.

Additionally, numerous customized integrations have been developed for a variety of PDM systems, as well as for database systems such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.

ERP integration

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems track all relevant data of a manufacturing enterprise that relates to order, production and delivery processes. ERP integration solutions generate and update basic data such as items, bills of material and work plans. These can be created automatically when generating new product variants. When a quote configured using Tacton is ordered, the order-relevant data is automatically generated in the ERP so that the order items can be selected correctly, completely and rapidly. All order-related documents and drawings are generated and linked. ERP integration solutions are available for SAP, Infor, ProAlpha and other systems.

CRM integration

A customer relationship management (CRM) system is used to administer customer and sales data, including addresses, contacts, the communication history and of course quotations. When the solution is fully integrated, quotations configured using Tacton are generated and administered directly in the user interface of the CRM system. This integration is available for Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics and other systems. Enterprise data can be accessed in a simplified form using just the Tacton CPQ system.

CAM integration

Most modern CAM systems based on Solidworks are feature-oriented. As 3D model variants generated using Tacton describe the models to be fabricated completely and always have the same internal structure (for instance in feature names and definitions), NC programming systems have an easy time processing such variants. The CAD models do not bear the unique hallmarks of the designer. This is an excellent basis for automated NC programming – and the Tacton export enables you to generate the file formats you actually need automatically and systematically. The contour generation calculated in Tacton can also be used for NC programming. Contour data can be derived from the configuration result using a defined process and described in the NC programming file using the Tacton document generation tool. The result: automatic generation of NC data!

So the easy-to-use rules editor in Tacton Design Automation was a key factor for us in choosing this system.
