Implementing SOVELIA PLM brings quality and control

Fortaco faced a big challenge at the start of the collaboration with Linkker. The companies needed to harmonize their software, improve the cost-effectiveness of the business, get a reasonable return on investment and ensure that the system solution can be adapted to changes in the future business.

Objectives were defined from the employees’ perspective: user-friendliness, versatility and simpler and more productive processes. The aim was to make everyday work easier, from design to customer delivery and after-sales activities. As a result, the Sovelia PLM system was selected with Symetri Oy as the supplier.


PLM brings quality and control
The typical challenges facing machinery and equipment manufacturers relate to productivity, quality and delivery time. Product data management is time-consuming and costly , and for the business to be profitable this has to be minimised. The project was divided into several stages. The first was item and product structure management and integration with the SolidWorks CAD and SAP ERP systems. This established a solid foundation for product design and communication with production. The second stage was the implementation of support for the sales and the order processes.


The implementation and extension of Sovelia were done in stages, as the aim was to ensure the functionality of the system and create a solid basis on which to build more functionality. This also ensured that the business can continue normally during the project and that there will not be unnecessary stops.
