Ventura Aerospace took the big step in moving to the PLM platform, PTC’s Windchill. This is major step forward for us here at Ventura Aerospace. While we have been using PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER Creo as our 2D/3D Cad solution since 1997 there has been no life cycle management tool being used. This resulted in many challenges with data management and product support over the years. As we continually lay the ground work for growth opportunities it was recognized that a stable foundation of data was one of the most important challenges to be overcome moving forward. Windchill provides us with that foundation on which to build by allowing us to improve the management of our own data along with our customer’s data. Everything from configuration management, bills of material and customer support will leverage Windchill in the coming months. As an engineering service provider we generate data and new intellectual property for ourselves and our customers. Access to that data both today and tomorrow is critical for success. Windchill is expected to provide a better path for success for Ventura Aerospace.
