PROLIM Solutions India (PROLIM India) is a Bangalore-based product lifecycle management (PLM) company working with customers in multiple industries such as automotive and transportation, medical devices and pharmaceuticals, aerospace and defense, heavy equipment and industrial machinery and others to improve product development processes since 2008. As part of the multinational PROLIM group, PROLIM India’s guiding principle is to apply its PLM and computer-aided design (CAD) expertise and thought leadership to help its customers build innovative products by leveraging digital technology. PROLIM India builds customer relationships on a strong foundation of respect, commitment and trust.
PROLIM India earned its Siemens Expert Partner recognition in using Teamcenter® software and NX™ software, which are part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services. Siemens recognizes partners that exemplify expertise in a Siemens solution or industry. These Siemens Expert Partners are validated by customers and Siemens for demonstrating their business and technical acumen.
As Indian companies expand globally, they are embracing digital transformation and expect comprehensive consultations and value-added services from their solution partners. PROLIM India pursued its Siemens Expert Partner recognition to stand out from its competitors by offering knowledge, skills and practices to help clients optimize design and data management processes.
PROLIM India offers extensive training to support its long-term relationships. It created a team of Siemens-certified coaches to provide no-cost, in-depth training to use Teamcenter and NX. Customers can request this training as part of their initial implementation or later in the process as needed. PROLIM also provides on-site and online custom training for specific NX or Teamcenter modules.
Using Teamcenter to streamline data retrieval
One of PROLIM India’s equipment manufacturer customers, a tractor manufacturer, was having trouble finding data quickly and needed help with its information silos. It lacked secure data transfer methods and relied heavily on face-to-face collaboration to share information between teams. Additionally, poorly aligned bill-of-materials (BOMs) throughout the production process resulted in low product accuracy, requiring extensive rework.
The company evaluated various PLM solutions to streamline its data management and found that using Teamcenter was the optimal solution and opportunity for its current needs and future growth. It sought a partner with a strong history of successful Teamcenter implementations and post-implementation technical support. The company decided PROLIM India was in the best position to meet its requirements.
PROLIM India began implementing Teamcenter by migrating all product information into a centralized network shared between departments, eliminating the company’s information silos. PROLIM India also developed a tool that enabled the customer to export BOMs seamlessly from engineering to manufacturing, reducing the need for manual data flow interventions between departments. The tool was unique for this customer and helped it ensure BOM consistency, reducing the number of reworks and increasing accuracy. They also used Teamcenter to centralize product information repositories to help the customer reduce the time searching for data by 30 percent.
“Siemens’ solutions cater to all aspects of PLM,” says Amit Dixit, head of sales at PROLIM India. “Working with Siemens alongside us, our customers can adopt the solutions and optimize their processes more easily, meet their objectives on time and achieve their desired business outcomes.”
Leveraging Siemens Xcelerator for future growth
PROLIM India plans to continue investing in its understanding of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform to further develop digital transformation efforts for its manufacturing customers. “The Siemens Xcelerator business platform has been growing over the last decade and we are excited to support our customers’ digitalization journey,” says Srinath Koppa, managing director of PROLIM India. “There is no other technology provider with a portfolio this diverse. PROLIM India supports the adoption of these technologies – software, hardware and services – across all of the industry verticals that Siemens Digital Industries Software operates.”
