Arena PLM


CADTALK PLM is a completely off-the-shelf, intelligent, bi-directional integration between your CAD, PDM and Arena.  CADTALK PLM reads data from any CAD and PDM application transforming the engineering bill of materials (eBOM) into Arena items and bills of material. 

 As an always current partner with PTC Arena, CADTALK PLM creates new and updates existing Arena items and bills of material between CAD/PDM and Arena items, bills of material and attachments while identifying and tracking the changes between CAD and Arena stock items and bills of material.  

CADTALK PLM is so much more than an import and mapping utility.  The CADTALK framework offers standardized, in-depth integrations coupled with expression-based, low-code, configurable intelligence that gives you the power to integrate your systems in hours and days rather than months and years.   CADTALK PLM focuses on the entire engineering to manufacturing hand-off by supporting every aspect of the bill of material from items, BOMs, attachments, vendors, manufacturers and more. 

Bundled with CADTALK DFM, you will eliminate manual data entry, reduce errors, and get more value out of your PTC Arena with accurate and consistent data transformation.
