Case Study Belimed

CAD conversion and migration to new PDM system

How Belimed unites engineering design worlds from multiple CAD/PDM systems 
  • Globally active Swiss company since 1968
  • Subsidiaries in 9 countries worldwide
  • Distribution network in over 80 countries
  • Leading provider of products and services for sterilisation, disinfection and cleaning of medical and surgical instruments

Strengthen collaboration

Intelliact enabled Belimed to convert and migrate different CAD/PDM environments to one enterprise-wide platform. In this way, Belimed strengthens the collaboration and communication between the different business units.

Compared to relatively long import times, Intelliact's analysis cycles are shorter, allowing correspondingly faster verification and optimisation of the data migration and thus a shorter overall runtime of the productive migration.

Challenge: Breaking down silos

Belimed's design and development data was previously mapped on different CAD and PDM systems. On the one hand, this silo approach inhibited collaboration and exchange between the business units. On the other hand, the intensive maintenance of several equivalent systems unnecessarily blocked internal IT resources. The decisive factors for merging and converting to a common CAD platform were, in particular, cost/benefit considerations and the expected runtime.

Implemented: Migration of converted data

Intelliact has supported Belimed in the conversion of the CAD data and carried out the migration of the converted data to the target system, in particular: 

Benefits for Belimed

Use legacy data cross the enterprise

Intelliact was able to optimally support Belimed in this project thanks to its sound understanding of the data and processes. Thanks to many years of migration experience and its continuously improved toolbox, Intelliact was able to react flexibly and quickly to new circumstances and successfully carry out the migration.

Belimed was able to ensure this with this project: 

  • Legacy data can be used and further processed in a new company-wide standardised environment.
  • Collaboration between the different business units is simplified
  • IT resources required for CAD/PDM system maintenance are reduced
  • Harmonisation of design and development processes across all product groups and business units
