Rimera to Deploy New Information System Based on PDM Search

The facility's Technical Center is about to complete the integration of a data storage and management system used to process the engineering data (including electronic documents) pertaining to the new designs and mass produced products. The system is based on PDM Search software platform. The Izhevsk-based plant commenced its PDM Search deployment project in February 2012; the completion is scheduled for April 2014.
Once up and running, the system will allow Izhneftemash engineers to save plenty of data search time and discontinue the use of an archive of paper originals. Other advantages include being able to quickly update the electronic technical documentation files and keep them up to the market requirements at all times.
By introducing PDM Search Rimera Group's Izhevsk-based plant already enjoys a 5% shorter documentation approval cycle time. By constantly upgrading the system and improving user qualifications the company plans to push forward until the anticipated 20% level is reached.
"Similar solutions used by other mechanical engineering companies deliver 10% - 30% shorter time-to-market for new products, depending on company specialization. Izhneftemash has become the group's first asset with PDM already in the final implementation phase. The experience we gain in Izhevsk will later on help us to save time when introducing similar systems in Almetyevsk, Chelyabinsk and Magnitogorsk, homes of other Rimera Group companies", comments Maxim Lobanov, Rimera Group IT Director.
