New Solution for Electromechanical Product Development

A new standard interface module links Zuken’s DS-2 platform to CONTACT Elements

October 16, 2019 – Munich, GermanyCONTACT Software and Zuken are providing a solution that enables end-to-end data and process integration across mechanical, electrical and electronic design. With a new standard interface module that integrates Zuken’s DS-2 platform into CONTACT Elements, common customers can efficiently link their E/E development with enterprise-wide Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to achieve complete transparency from early design phases throughout the product lifecycle.

The new standard module for CONTACT Elements and Zuken’s DS-2 supports the secure synchronization of part master data, parts lists, documents and design data between Zuken’s ECAD systems E3.series (electrical and fluid engineering), and CR-8000 (PCB design) and  CIM Database PLM. In this way, complex product data can be consolidated into a holistic view of electrical, electronic and mechanic subsystems that can be verified at an early stage in the product development process.

We are seeing a growing demand for data and process integration that is driven by mega-trends such as industry 4.0, e-mobility and smart cities, which require stakeholders and disciplines to work more closely together in product development.

Digital Continuity in Product Development

Today's smart and connected products require the interaction of different components and systems. Their elements are developed in different engineering disciplines and departments. These disciplines speak different engineering languages and require unique views of the same product. The storage of these different versions in the respective departments leads to disconnected silos in terms of processes and data - but digital continuity is here to help!
