Product Lifecycle Management services including related IT-strategies.

Service deliverables from Eurostep are driven by the concept of openness and that systems should be designed to deliver business flexibility with the relevant level of security. The services are based on world-class knowledge about standards as well as their implementation in business-critical systems as ShareAspace. The unique Eurostep knowledge is derived from our understanding of several domains like PDM, PLM, ERP, ILS and MRO and how to consolidate this domain information and make it easy to share.

Eurostep has for 20+ years developed expertise in product data collaboration inside one domain or across several domains. A domain can be Systems Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, Operation and Product Support.

Eurostep has leading expertise in collaboration across enterprise borders where security and IP protection are critical. Our experience and best practice include how ShareAspace and involved systems are set up and using Active Directories, Single Sign-On, Firewalls and Enterprise Service Buses.

Studies and Reports

Over the years, Eurostep has developed extensive knowledge about collaboration across domains and across enterprises. This allows us to analyze and benchmark our customers to best practice. The result is delivered as workshops and reports.

Collaboration Capabilities Roadmap

Mainly delivered for collaboration projects in product development, design to production or in-service collaboration including the installed base and systems as-maintained. Your business has identified benefits with a collaboration project and wants to make sure this is managed in a professional and efficient way. Services could include:

  • Documentation of current situation and challenges
  • Evaluation against industry best practice
  • Suggested collaboration road map

Information Needs Analysis (INA)

Used when you are entering into a contract with specific requirements on the delivery of product information. For this, you want to make sure that you fulfil all contract requirements and that you do it in the most efficient way. This INA study includes:

  • Review of the current situation as well as contractual requirements
  • Evaluation against industry best practice
  • Suggested Roadmap

Proof of Concept (POC)

Together with the client project team, we do a proof of concepts demonstrating how ShareAspace can support a specific collaboration scenario in an efficient way. The POC collects user input based on a real case scenario and is designed with use case relevant data. A POC ensures that all parties have a common understanding of the business challenge and potential solution. Typically, the POC is input to a full-scale implementation project or a refined request for proposal (RFP).

Master Data Management (MDM) For PLM Data

You have product information stored in different internal systems and need a consolidated view on relevant information. Eurostep has a methodology for how to design the overall system, how to define systems of origin, how to manage configurations and how to implement the distributed PLM MDM solution.

Implementation Projects

Eurostep support the implementation of ShareAspace solutions from initial requirements gathering to a system in production based on our long experience from successful projects. Eurostep and partners deliver the complete solution including training, implementation in existing IT infrastructure and cloud, and governance of sustainable solutions for business flexibility.
