'Teamcenter' and 'NX' at Pollmann

As part of the Pollmann digital strategy, we decided in 2014 to introduce a PLM system (Product Lifecycle Management). What convinced us was the opportunity to standardize the CAD/CAM environment at all our locations.

Following a thorough screening process, we chose the SIEMENS programs NX for CAD/CAM and Teamcenter as a PLM system. By now, we have reached a top level in terms of converting and implementing the new IT architecture at our headquarters in Karlstein, and we have already started the rollout to our locations in North American and China. .
