Airbus Helicopters Leverages PTC Partnership to Deliver Next-Generation Helicopter
Airbus Helicopters enlisted PTC Global Services to roll out a Windchill PLM system for the H160 helicopter. After the PLM backbone went live in six months, product designers benefited from improved configuration management and concurrent engineering.
Airbus Helicopters needed a PLM partner to ensure that its cutting-edge H160 helicopter would be on time and on quality. It found that partner in PTC.
The consultants of PTC Global Services delivered a PLM backbone on Windchill, allowing for more efficient and accurate management of the helicopter’s design—and they did so in six months, under significant project pressures.
For a company like Airbus Helicopters, with 3,000 customers in 152 countries, the launch of a new helicopter as advanced as the H160 is a major milestone. Achieving that milestone requires ingenuity, ambition, dedication to efficiency, and a partner like PTC.
