Our Offering

OpenDXM®, the engineering data workflow solution

OpenDXM® is PROSTEP's sophisticated and well-established solution for the fast and secure exchange of engineering data. Design engineers no longer require special know-how in order to exchange data and no longer need to worry about the transfer of their own data.

OpenDXM® GlobalX, a new generation of data exchange solutions

The OpenDXM® GlobalX data exchange platform enables the secure, stable and easy exchange of all data via the Internet. OpenDXM® GlobalX offers a highly secure encryption concept and has been optimized for the stable transfer of large volumes of data.

OpenPDM®, product data management that knows no boundaries

The PDM integration platform OpenPDM® not only allows PDM information to be exchanged between different systems but also provides simultaneous access to several PDM systems within a single company and via the Web. OpenPDM® facilitates the configuration of integration solutions with varying degrees of complexity – from the simple coupling of two systems in the intranet to global engineering portals.

OpenDESC®.com, CAD integration made easy

The online conversion service OpenDESC®.com saves companies that work with a number of different customers from having to acquire and maintain a battery of customer-specific CAD systems and, above all, ensures that your data arrives at its destination with the desired level of quality. Our knowledgeable experts also offer consultancy and other services relating to the conversion and migration of a wide range of PLM systems.

PDF Generator 3D – innovative solutions for document-based business processes

PROSTEP AG is responsible for the exclusive worldwide marketing of the server software PDF Generator 3D, which is based on Adobe LiveCycle technology. PDF Generator 3D enables the fully automatic generation of 3D PDF content for manufacturing industry.

In cooperation with Adobe Systems, we also offer complete solutions that integrate 3D data in intelligent PDF documents, incorporate these documents in PLM environments, manage these documents and, depending on the application scenario involved, protect these documents against misuse

3D PDF documents are thus ideal for merging and representing complex technical content such as CAD data, product structure data or other metainformation, for example, in a simple PDF document in engineering departments and in upstream and downstream areas in particular. This includes areas such as manufacturing documentation, service and maintenance documents or spare parts catalogs, as well as procurement or marketing documents. All end users need is Adobe Reader, which is available worldwide free of charge.

PLM Consulting

PROSTEP is the ideal partner for optimizing your PLM processes
Over fifteen years of experiences and a tight collaboration network with the leading PLM vendors provide a strong foundation for the consulting services we offer. With us you are in the best of hands when it comes to all matters relating to both internal and cross-enterprise process consulting and the appropriate system strategy. We provide support for the implementation of engineering strategies and concepts, from requirements analysis, to specification of the solutions, to the selection of the most suitable resources, through to the implementation, testing, roll-out and operation of the respective PLM components.

Systems Engineering

The introduction of hybridized/electrified systems is leading to a higher level of cross-linking and dependencies between product components. The growing diversity of product variants results in complex data structures that are almost impossible to maintain. In keeping with these trends, PROSTEP offers a range of consultancy services tailored to deal with the key issues involved in the development of mechatronic systems as far as systems engineering requirements are concerne.

Our core areas of expertise  include requirements management, system architecture and modeling as well as variant and configuration management. We offer process consulting, method and concept development, and we provide support with the selection of a system and development planning.
