Eurostep, the leader in secure PLM collaboration and controlled data sharing, has been selected by FMV to implement the Swedish Defence PLCS DEXs into the business of FMV. Eurostep will also represent FMV in various standardization forums related to the maintenance and development of the standard.

The extensive contract, that commenced in June 2020, is part of FMV’s ambition to streamline its handling of product-related information with the goal to reduce costs, reduce lead times, and increase quality.

“Eurostep is happy to be selected for this important assignment, even more so as it addresses such an important issue not only to FMV but also for the industry as a whole.” – Håkan Kårdén, VP Marketing, Eurostep Group.

Acquiring, operating, and maintaining a vast portfolio of complex weapon systems in an extended enterprise requires digitalization and dedicated solutions. It also requires controlled data sharing amongst the stakeholders involved; system suppliers, operators, and maintenance organizations/contractors. PLCS (ISO 10303 AP239) and PLCS based working methods make it possible to exchange product data in a common, open, neutral, and standardized way enabling an unbroken flow, a digital thread, of information from a product lifecycle perspective, thereby eliminating friction and cost in collaboration both internally and externally.

FMV is the main provider of materiel and services to the Swedish Armed Forces. FMV has for many years promoted the development and application of standards-based collaboration. FMV is in good company with many other defence authorities in Europe and globally where the issues of collaboration are high up on their agenda as they need to improve their operations and cut cost.
