Fujitsu enhances integrated product data management system

Adds product development support functions to facilitate conceptual phase overseeing design composition

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu and Fujitsu Nagano Systems Engineering has added a new function to their Plemia M3 series, an integrated product-data management system offering for the manufacturing industry.

The company said that the new function consists of product development support functions to facilitate the conceptual phase overseeing design composition to meet product specifications. It helps users to prevent product flaws found during the development of previous products and refer to validated information such as the product’s durability, thereby reducing the need for revisions resulting from design mistakes and aiding in the standardisation of parts.

By helping to visualise and manage product information, designer workloads, and design processes, Plemia M3 reduces costs and the time needed to develop products. In the new version of Plemia M3, Fujitsu is delivering a new function to help facilitate the conceptual phase of product design, allowing smoother overall product development.

According to Fujitsu, the Plemia M3 conceptual-design function features enable users to break plans for a product into actual product specifications and display them on a specification sheet; allows users to save screen captures of images and related documentation at each stage of review during the conceptual phase; and raises designers’ awareness through information retrieval functions.

In addition, the company is also offering Plemia M3/EDM, a data management function that enables users to utilise conceptual-design features. The function enables improved access to design data through data retrieval, the display of relevant data in real time, and the use of tabs.

With Plemia M3/EDM, companies will be able to achieve business efficiency by allowing access to relevant information and accumulated knowledge and leveraging past design know-how during the conceptual design phase, Fujitsu said.

The Plemia M3 Series is expected to be available from March 2010, starting at JPY3.6m for conceptual-design support and JPY2.76m for EDM data management.
