The Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation has selected PTC as its strategic partner for its enterprise PLM initiative.

Following an extensive two-year benchmark testing and selection process, Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation selected PTC’s Windchill as its enterprise PLM solution to consolidate multiple existing systems into a single platform for managing critical product data and related processes for vehicle development. Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation is adopting the Windchill PLM system in its core R and D groups and intends to extend use of the solution through its internal and external value chain.

Dr. H. S. Lee, Vice Chairman of HKMC’s R and D center, said, “In order to support our ambitious growth plans, we have prioritized the need for a faster and more efficient environment to facilitate global concurrent product development and support the rapidly changing requirements for our vehicle programs. Two years ago we began looking at all available PLM solutions to meet our requirements. We selected and procured with PTC because of Windchill’s impressive results in our comprehensive benchmarking process, PTC’s proven track record as an effective partner in powertrain development, and its growing strength in the automotive industry.”

The first phase of delivery, which has already begun, establishes a system of record for the complete vehicle -- the engineering Bill of Materials -- and for Change Management. Phase I also includes CATIA data management and a Digital Mock-Up (DMU) environment. The system gradually is expected to be expanded globally.

Jim Heppelmann, President and CEO of PTC said, “As a global automotive OEM, Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation can now benefit from a single source for accessing data and managing processes across vehicle design programs in order to quickly respond to changes, to address the unique needs of global markets, and to ensure quality through production in many countries.”

PTC solutions for automotive needs are designed to meet the product design and product life cycle management needs of both OEMs and suppliers in the automotive industry. PTC’s customers in the automotive industry utilizing PTC’s enterprise 3D design, product data management and/or collaboration solutions include eight of the Top 10 power train suppliers and three of the Top Five automotive OEMs.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
