PTC announced that Brazil-based Embraer, one of the world's largest aircraft manufacturers, has selected PTC's product lifecycle management (PLM) technology to help bring new aircraft to market faster and more efficiently. Embraer says the company is proactively preparing for an expected increase in demand for new aircraft in the coming years.
"At Embraer, we have a proud tradition of innovation that has allowed us to satisfy the ever changing demands of the global aviation industry," said Mauro Kern, Embraer's executive vice president, engineering and technology. "This PLM program with PTC will bring the best technology to improve our ability to design, develop, and deliver innovative, safe, and efficient aircraft."
"PTC showed us a strong technical and commercial solution that matched our key ITC enterprise architecture: wide functionality and flexible parameterization to avoid customization, open and easy interfacing allowing integration into a heterogeneous environment, and a flexible licensing and support model with balanced intellectual property protection minimizing our total cost of ownership," said Alexandre Baule, Embraer's CIO.
After an exhaustive review of PLM technology providers, Embraer chose PTC as its partner of record for its entire global aircraft development program, including commercial, executive and defense.
