Products

ETRAGE’s extensive expertise in CAD, PDM, PLM and ERP software development enables us to provide custom domain-specific solutions, as well as general-purpose tools.

ShipConstructor Software - IFS ERP Integration
The ShipConstructor Software integration with the IFS Applications provides a robust exchange of data between these systems. The integration uses EIS to transfer Bills of Materials (BOM), viewables, part numbers, attributes and more between assembly drawings automatically created by ShipConstructor and IFS Application suite. It provides real-time updates of BOM changes into the IFS ERP application, streamlines data flow between the engineering, manufacturing and purchasing departments, eliminates manual data entry or processes of large sets of data and insures that manufacturing and purchasing has access to the most up to date BOM and drawings inside the IFS.

IFS Integration Application for SolidWorks® EPDM
The IFS Integration Application for SolidWorks® EPDM was developed with the Etrage Integration Server (EIS) to connect systems that normally are not able to communicate, and to do it in a way that is minimally disruptive to the end users. It implements a plug-in architecture, where each system has its own set of integration actions, such as exporting BOM or generating part number.

Products for Windchill

ETRAGE product development efforts have focused on PDM automation and integration solutions in the Windchill and INTRALINK environment. These efforts have been driven by customer need to automate processes or access PDM data by project personnel of differing skill sets and data that was created from various sources.

Windchill PLM – IFS ERP Integration
The Windchill PLM – IFS ERP Integration was developed with the Etrage Integration Server (EIS) to connect systems that normally are not able to communicate, and to do it in a way that is minimally disruptive to the end users. It implements a plug-in architecture, where each system has its own set of integration actions, such as exporting BOM or generating part number.

Plot Service for Windchill - PSW
PSW has been developed to plot or create viewable files such as PDF, IGES or ProductView in three modes of operation:

  • The first is to automatically monitor Windchill and process objects when there has been a Lifecycle or Revision change or a Check-in process.
  • The second is a batch mode where PSW will process all models identified in a text file list.
  • The third is through an On-Demand mode where a user can search for models and execute requests in Windchill for required drawings, parts or assemblies. PSW operates on models stored in Windchill PDMLink, INTRALINK or on a Windows file system.

Etrage Viewer

The Etrage Viewer reduces time and cost of viewing and printing CAD viewables and other file formats. The software displays PDF and other viewable files created by Etrage’s Plot Service for Windchill (PSW), other viewable creation applications or manual processes. Viewable metadata can be added automatically through PSW or manually. The user-friendly search engine and document storage system mirrors many Internet search systems that are available for use every day.

AutoVue Integration with Windchill

Visualization of Native Models in Windchill® without the need for the Underlying CAD Applications, Pre-Publishing or Compiling Tools.

Etrage Quality Server

The Quality Server provides a simplified method for managing the quality of Creo models stored in Windchill or in a Windows directory by executing ModelCHECK standards and custom checks in Batch or by monitoring Windchill for changes in Lifecycle state or Revision. The Quality Server provides links to detailed reports in HTML format, that can be used to track issues and trends.

Etrage Bulk Loader

The Bulk Loader streamlines the process for uploading a large number of CAD files into Windchill PDMLink and INTRALINK. It validates against existing CAD files in Windchill,verifies CAD revisions and identifies conflicts.

Creo Model Clean-up Utilities for Windchill Migration
Model Clean-up Utilities insures clean-up and consolidation of parameters, family tables and Layers to a consistent configuration, for all models being imported to Windchill.

Products for Pro/INTRALINK

ETRAGE product development efforts have focused on PDM automation and integration solutions in the Pro/INTRALINK environment. These efforts have been driven by customer need to automate processes or access PDM data by project personnel of differing skill sets and data that was created from various sources.

Plot Service for Pro/INTRALINK
Automated, batch, web & command line plotting and PDF generation of released drawings & diagrams from Pro/INTRALINK.

Automation COM Interface (ACI)

ETRAGE has developed a COM/DCOM/ActiveX interface to the PTC Pro/TOOLKITs for Wildfire and Pro/INTRALINK to make application development faster and easier for engineers. COM is Microsoft's object oriented interoperability technology supported by VB, VB.NET, C# and many other languages. The Automation COM Interface (ACI) consolidates the Pro/TOOLKIT interface and internally translates the client calls to the corresponding series of Pro/TOOLKIT API calls. This keeps the engineer from having to know the complexities of Pro/TOOLKIT or C/C++ and lets him use familiar tools such as Visual Basic.
