“Previously, a project like this might have required 18 months to two years. But the PTC products saved time throughout development,” continues Sayer. “Even the purchasing team took significantly less time to find parts with Windchill.”

In fact, the PTC systems helped Aston Martin Racing to create race cars that exceeded the targets set out for them, according to Sayer. “The Vantage GT3, for example, exceeds all the targets we set. It’s a different beast from any of its predecessors. The GTE is considered one of the best GT cars in the world and took class wins in both Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship last year.”
