HELiOS is the product data management (PDM) software of the ISD Group. You could already read about the advantages of PDM for your company. We will now show you how HELiOS implements these advantages.
PDM is particularly interesting for the construction industry, as it creates an interface between CAD and ERP. CAD software is drawing-oriented and since ERP systems are article-oriented, PDM must be the link. In HELiOS article numbers are assigned so that projects and individual files can be allocated at any time. A normal document management system (DMS) would not be able to do this.
Automation is becoming more and more relevant to save time. HELiOS has the ability to regulate files via shares. This ensures that workflows are followed and rework is avoided. Otherwise, it can happen that work is done on outdated versions of the model.
For every CAD program it makes sense to work in parallel with a PDM system. A lot of data means a lot of effort for your company. Link your HiCAD, Inventor, AutoCAD, Solidworks, Zuken, EPlan or Navisworks with HELiOS to manage every little file. Even without a CAD license, all steps can be traced and views created for a design manager.
HELiOS works process-accompanying to your project. Already in the design phase you can create the order data and all product documents can be released from HELiOS. What you may not have known is that it is important for certification that all states of the project must be recorded.
During construction, you can see exactly who is working on what and intermediate steps can be easily shown to the customer. Even the simulations and assembly films can be reproduced in it.
HELiOS also shows its advantages for the output. How long do you need to create your parts list? Do you still enter it in Excel? All article information and neutral formats managed in HELiOS can be created completely automatically.
The advantages of purchasing software have already been explained. A purchase saves you costs in the long term, as the software pays for itself.
