PLM Data Migration

Teamcenter Data Migration

Often underestimated, this topic has the potential to delay or put your project in a crisis. Data cleaning and preparations often take more time and resources than estimated. Even though migration scripts or tools are ready in time, getting a considerable amount of data in desired formats in the desired sequence is often challenging and requires many internal resources to prepare data.


Often, PLM service providers underestimate the importance of data migration practices. Migrating CAD data, part numbers, BOM issues, and incorrect or misused data is indeed a challenge. Also, most of the time this problem is looked at as only digital data transfer whereas some portions of the legacy data will be held in hard copies. Hence, such a complex process requires a defined strategy and the right expertise to achieve a successful migration.
