HELiOS - PDM with ERP interface
- Do you often struggle to keep the CAD data, and the data related to production, purchase and sales department – in short: to all ERP users – up to date and consistent?
- Is your engineering department still thinking in terms of drawing numbers and geometries while the rest of your company works in an article-based manner?
- Do your employees spend a lot of precious working time on article data maintenance in the ERP system?
- Must all ERP-related bills of materials be created manually?
- Have severe mistakes ever occurred as a result of such error-prone, manual processes?
- Are neutral formats such as PDF or STEP always created manually in order to provide the production with the necessary documents?
- Or do you even generate huge amounts of drawings in paper form among which you soon get lost?
Thanks to its article-based approach, HELiOS offers the option to link the data and drawings created in the world of CAD to the articles used in the rest of the company. Automatisms in HELiOS create article-based product structures directly from the CAD model. These product structures will then serve as a basis for bills of materials in ERP.

We optimize your Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) with HELiOS
PDM and ERP
The PDM/PLM software HELiOS provides you with the key technology that will make your company even more efficient and competitive through a sophisticated Product Lifecycle Management. Thanks to the possibility to automatically link design data to articles, HELiOS offers you far more than just drawing management. On the basis of the articles from CAD, product structures are generated, to which non-graphical parts can be added. In total, this allows a seamless data flow between engineering/development and materials scheduling/production by linking PDM and ERP. All BOM-relevant information and production drawings can be passed on in their most recent version to the ERP system and will then be available to other departments at any time. It does not matter which ERP system you wish to link – we will find the right solution for you.
