CAD Integration

Ensure accurate information flow

Accurate and instant information exchange is critical to maintaining a “single source of the truth” during product development and manufacturing. CAD Integration within Minerva PLM allows designers and their extended supply chain to manage the design process and collaborate from one central application, independent of the CAD tools they use.



Leverage All Your CAD Data

Information flow between CAD and PLM systems speeds up the development process, reduces costs, avoids errors in production and upholds consistency in product quality and fit. That is why managing CAD data through enterprise-wide processes is often a top priority for businesses when planning a PLM initiative.

The CAD integration inside Minerva PLM provides secure and consistent management of the creation, change and archiving of information from all popular MCAD and ECAD systems.
