MCAD consolidation at HENSOLDT: The most important steps are done

The German-based high-tech pioneer HENSOLDT is an increasingly global enterprise with a market-leading position in Europe – constantly seeking to improve competitiveness, innovation, and efficiency. It is no coincidence that the expert for sensor solutions also promotes the company’s PLM digitalization. With a “One CAD and One System” strategy, the company is currently unifying the heterogeneous CAD tools and data processing systems in the field of mechanical engineering. Aside from the transition from CATIA and I‑deas to Siemens NX, this strategy aims at:

Most of this is already done. Not least because HENSOLDT realizes this project together with DSC, an experienced implementation partner for digital PLM strategies in SAP.

In the field of mechanical engineering, the company now relies on one single CAD tool and data processing system. The essential goal of “One CAD and One System” has therefore been achieved, ensuring both a lean system landscape and uniform processes. The SAP-supported processes simplify the way of working and offer greater security. For example, thanks to checking mechanisms that facilitate compliance with the company-wide design guidelines. Now, HENSOLDT can approach new projects for further increasing workflow efficiency: either regarding ECAD / CAM integration, seamless PDP digitalization, or much more. With the strategic platform SAP ECTR, a lot is possible.
