To demonstrate our research results, we connected the PTC Windchill® PLM solution with the Microsoft Dynamics™ ERP software through the PTC ThingWorx® Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform.
A user sends data about a BOM assembly or single component from Windchill to ThingWorx, where all the jobs are done. ThingWorx retrieves from Dynamics commercial data about each BOM component: suppliers, prices, due dates, etc. Analyzing this information, a user decides for which supplier to approve the component. According to the user’s decision, ThingWorx sends data to Windchill and Dynamics. The components have their lifecycle states updated in Windchill. Orders to the supplier are created in Dynamics.
