Liebherr Opts for CoCreate's PLM Solution

Construction machinery leader cites software's performance with large assemblies

CoCreate Software GmbH, a leading provider of 3rd Generation PLM software applications, today announced that FORT COLLINS, Colorado and SINDELFINGEN, Germany - July 10, 2007several Liebherr departments have purchased CoCreate's data management software, OneSpace Model Manager.

Liebherr, one of the largest manufacturers of construction machinery, already uses CoCreate's 3D CAD tool, CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, in its crane, mixing technology, domestic appliance and machine tool divisions. With 300 seats of the 3D CAD software, Liebherr Group is now deploying an equal number of CoCreate's data management solution.

Liebherr selected OneSpace Model Manager for its impressive performance with very large assemblies. OneSpace Model Manager allows Liebherr designers to quickly load and store their design data, regardless of its size. Plus, OneSpace Model Manager preserves system resources by supporting lightweight models and partial load, so that designers load only what they need when they need it.

OneSpace Model Manager ensures that designs don't become lost, overwritten or isolated from the team.

"With OneSpace Model Manager the engineers at Liebherr always know when design changes might impact the work of others," said William M. Gascoigne, CoCreate CEO. "That's mandatory business practice for any company developing high-tech and complex machinery."

CoCreate's 3rd generation PLM supports a modular approach. That is, a company can develop a complete product development and lifecycle management environment by tying together existing technologies and adding only what they need as they need it. For example, Liebherr cranes and mixing technology divisions are currently restructuring their IT environments to include the latest Webservice and Java technologies so they can tightly integrate ERP into their design process.
