Smart PLM with Windchill 11

Keep Everyone Informed and Connected to a Single Source of Truth for Product Data and Processes

Developing today’s products is a fast-paced, highly dynamic process involving more people and disciplines than ever before. Keeping everyone informed and connected to a single source of truth for product data and processes is vital to accurate decisions, high-quality work, and timely product releases.

Windchill 11 introduces new role-base apps, called PTC Navigate to get the right product data to more people– faster, easier, and in context with the work they do.

See Chris Bergquist, Senior Channel Solutions Director at PTC, introduce and demonstrate the new role-based apps technology in Windchill 11.


"...these role-based apps will better enable casual PLM users to access and work with information managed by Windchill 11. This continues PTC's efforts to democratize PLM and make it accessible to more non-engineering and technical personnel."
