“Top-Class Performance!” is KTM’s maxim – Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer. The company has set this standard not just for its finished products, but rather also for its own development process. For many years, we have had the privilege of supporting the company to also fulfil this standard in the software segment as well. We develop supplemental applications for PTC Creo® which support KTM Designers during their daily development work. Thus, operational sequences are optimised and the entire product development process is accelerated.
Visualization Data as a Collective Database
During the course of our collective journey, we received the mandate from KTM to implement a section of our EPP solution within their design workflow.
EPP (Engineering Process Publisher – for Windchill® positioning assemblies) encompasses a software component that we have developed which enables fast and efficient visualization of so-called positioning assemblies in Windchill®. Through the efficient usage of the available hardware and the usage of special logics, direct time savings can thus be attained.
The Cornerstone has been Laid
During the first step, KTM AG opted for a solution which enables it to identify those components in the CAD assembly units which cannot be published as positioning assemblies. Precisely each component used for the visualization of the product data in Windchill® was seamlessly integrated by us at KTM.
Through the integration of the EPP sub-component, we laid the foundation for a continued cooperation and the expansion of the platform.
Next Logical Step
In order to utilise the full CADS.Advantage, KTM opted for our EPS solution at the end of 2018.
EPS (Engineering Process Sampler) is a bi-directional interface between Creo Parametric© and Creo View©. Thus, it will be possible in the future for KTM’s Designers to fulfil their tasks within the overall context of the assembly unit without having to compromise performance at the same time. Quite true to its motto of “Pure Performance for the Road”, our EPS solution will also bring you this performance in the future in CAD assembly unit management.
