From these specifications, the user can then select such options as end connection, body material, actuator type, seal type, and material, while the online configurator can also dynamically generate figure numbers, bills of materials (BOMs), and drawings to help an engineer complete a plant design. To be even more attuned to this target market, BigMachines has opted to participate in the initiative of the nonprofit Read More

PLM: A New World of (More) Collaboration and Innovation
