Design and PLM

Why PTC acquired ThingWorx

Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC

PLM today isn't just about CAx, PDM and tools for collaboration. Ask PTC's CEO Jim Heppelmann. He claims that new software like ALM, SLM, and others for after market services is the way to prepare for a future that's already here.

The path to PLM for KTM

Since 1998, KTM has been using PTC’s tools to assist with taking its products from concept to manufactured item

KTM is a motorcycle manufacturer, founded in 1934 by Hans Trunkenpolz in Matihofen, Austria, where the company remains today. Starting out as a metal working business, two decades later it developed into a motorcycle manufacturer and has recently gone down a new road with product lifecycle management (PLM).
