End-To-End Architecture Design for the Digital Thread of Embedded Software
System Integration / Add Ons for ALM / PLM / ERP especially for SAP as well as Flash Stations & IIoT Solutions
Full Stack Application Development for Diagnostic Data Services leveraging Cloud Native & Low Code Technology
We integrate your Software Engineering tool chain with your operations in ALM/ PLM/ERP/MES and diagnostic tools/flash stations – packaging your software and parameter data the way it is needed at downstream process events: Production & service, on & offsite, onboard & offboard. By this you gain full control and traceability of the effective software configuration along your processes.
P&PM implements solutions for order specific generation and delivery of software packages to shop floor flash stations – including fault & exception management procedures. We integrate different sources for parameterization like ALM/PLM/ERP (customer order data for example) as well as test bench results as input for device configuration processes in line with software delivery.
P&PM implements solutions to maintain compatible Device Packages of software for usage in the field. Also, we provide solutions for data distribution to Diagnosis Tools / Device Type Managers for diverse business scenarios onsite / offsite, onboard and offboard. Our focus is on data management procedures: Definition & maintenance of relevant data packs and their delivery to field events. This includes the mastering of compatibility / dependecy matrixes as well as solutions for software campaign management integrated into your ALM/PLM/ERP/IoT processes.
P&PM helps you designing and implementing solutions to manage software parameters: Definition of valid parameters / parameterizations, execution of mass parameterization in Production (using ODX or IODD for instance, integrated into your SAP Variant & Order Management) or technical clarification / effectivity control of software functions via parameter in aftersales (Software as a Product). Design and Implementation of Software Functions on Demand by Software Variant Coding. We are experts in managing the data for parameter events - integrated in your operations.
Diagnostic trouble code are rarely considered as crucial - however not controlling their growing complexity leads to significant efforts along the value chain. P&PM helps you in designing and implementing solutions to manage fault & status codes together with the relevant measures and instructions. Our expertise in regards to software parameter management helps you defining rule based patterns to automatically determine the right measures depending on the fault code and the configuration / parameterization of your device.
P&PM designs and implements solutions to write Digital Type Plates (Characterization of the product, retrievable from the device) at Production & Service events and to capture the As Built / As Maintained Configuration of Software and Parameters into a Digital Twin (central / cloud based reference of your products/assets) - based on industry standards like ODX, IODD / OPC UA for instance. Digital Twins of Diagnostic Data can be leveraged at diverse business events: Technical clarification during after sales events as well as installation processes or restore events of complex devices in the field.
