NEWAG is optimising its design and production processes due to the implementation of the PDM Autodesk Vault system and its integration with the ERP system.
The integration of the project documentation management system and the ERP system is the key stage of the process of digitisation and the design and manufacturing process at NEWAG. Linking these two areas makes it possible to reduce the time needed to introduce structures by 40%, automated change ordering, full monitoring of data from various departments and minimising the number of errors. The end result for NEWAG is reducing the time necessary for starting vehicle manufacturing. P.A. NOVA S.A. – an Authorised Partner for Autodesk, is providing support in the software implementation.
‘We implement the whole process of creating and designing of a rail vehicle in the digital form thanks to which we can control the production very precisely by providing the right quality of materials and their availability in the ordering area. All the pats which constitute the vehicle are modelled in the digital format,” says Maciej Górowski, Head of the Research and Development Department, NEWAG IP Management, NEWAG Group.
Impuls II – full digitization of the design-production process
Impuls II electric multiple unit, designed and manufactured in Nowy Sącz for an Italian train operator, constitutes an example of using digital data to optimise processes at NEWAG. This one of the leading rail companies in Poland uses Product Design & Manufacturing Collection by Autodesk in their everyday work. The integrated systems PDM – Autodesk Vault and ERP enable effective data management at the level of various departments, including the design department (with the staff exceeding 200 people), technology department, production department as well as sales and procuring departments. NEWAG’s representatives evaluate the results of the integration in a film available on youtube.
