Sovelia PLM removes the need for manual work and eliminates sources of errors
Lidan Marine and its design department have grown strongly in the last five years, increasing the need to work more efficiently. The question of whether a PDM/PLM system could be a solution to their problems has come up regularly. After careful consideration and evaluation of different systems and suppliers, Sovelia solution by Symetri was finally chosen.
All the designers were trained in Sovelia, and the article structure from the CAD environment has been linked to the business system Monitor to get a controlled process for releasing drawings.
“This makes parts management easier, as it can now be managed directly in Inventor instead of in Monitor as before. This allows us to do away with the manual work we used to do and to eliminate sources of error. We can also increase the reuse of designs throughout the chain,” explains Henrik Eriksson.
