HAMAMATSU, Japan, April 24, 2015—Elysium Co. Ltd., a global leading interoperability solutions provider, announces a new partnership with PROSTEP AG. The target of the partnership is, in addition to geometry, providing the users with the data translation and transfer service OpenDESC.com with the translation of the features and parametric information of their CAD models. Thus, for the first time, it will be possible to process translated data in all current CAD systems and return them to the production system using the same editing possibilities.
The offer is destined for companies who, in Joint Ventures or during globally distributed development projects, cooperate with partners using different CAD systems. It is especially beneficial for small suppliers that have to achieve increasing requirements on data quality but are unable to invest in expensive conversion tools. PROSTEP will completely integrate the tools of Elysium in OpenDESC.com to largely automate the translation of features and parametric information and, thus, be able to offer the service at the lowest-possible cost with the highest level functionality for fully parametric models for downstream editability.
PROSTEP’s long-term experience with data translation and transfer, as well as their profound knowledge in process requirements in the automotive industry, have been important reasons for Elysium to decide for a partnership with the IT software and consulting company of Darmstadt. “The conversion of features and parametric information is a highly complex issue,” says Ken Tashiro, Vice President and chief operating officer (COO) of Elysium. “PROSTEP has the necessary translation expertise with much experience and, thus, can make optimum use of the capability of our solutions for the user’s benefit.”
Through the cooperation with Elysium, PROSTEP enlarges their service range with technology that leading automobile manufacturers already use successfully for their data migration, and for the first time, provide it for use in running development projects. “We have observed the market very carefully and, for a long time, have searched for a suitable solution. The tools of Elysium are the only ones fulfilling our process requirements,” underlines Dr. Josip Stjepandic, Head of Business Unit 3D Product Creation at PROSTEP.
