PTC announced that Eurocopter, an EADS subsidiary, is expanding its use of PTC technology solutions.
In 2008, EADS selected PTC technology solutions to serve as the backbone of its PHENIX Master Product Definition platform, an initiative to harmonize its product lifecycle management (PLM) environment across the entire company.
The latest development in the partnership between the companies is the completed deployment of a new Spares Configuration Data Management (SCDM) system that leverages PTC technology to efficiently manage spare parts across Eurocopter's global service network. At a corporate level, EADS has outlined an aggressive vision for increasing its service revenue to 25% of total revenue by 2020.
"To contribute to this objective, Eurocopter will use SCDM to improve its spare parts data management processes by 50%, focusing on high-value services initially related to platforms, requiring and developing both customer centricity and product intimacy," said Pascal Gaudry, vice president, material and logistics service center, Eurocopter.
The next steps will enable Eurocopter to manage in-service helicopter configurations to offer tailored services to its customers.
