PROLIM: Integrating Life into Product Lifecycle Management

Prabhu Patil,President & CEO
The global business models have become more complex as corporations are growing through major acquisitions, and divesting their portfolio, walking away from non-core money losing business activities. The new age companies require Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions that collaborates and manages all of the critical product information and business processes that goes into bringing successful products to market. PROLIM, headquartered in Farmington Hills, MI, aims to help such corporations accomplish their PLM business goals with strong PLM Technology R&D capabilities.

PROLIM teams comprise independent highly-skilled professionals who bring excellent work value in CAD engineering services to the floor. The company offers a number of cutting-edge design solutions like Solid Edge, NX, and NX CAM Express.

With superior core modeling and process workflows, a unique focus on specific industries, and fully integrated design management, Solid Edge guides projects toward an error free and accurate design solution. The Synchronous Technology in Solid Edge eliminates the need to choose between constraint driven or history-free modeling, to be a programmer to reuse a model, and the worry about using data from multiple CAD systems. A comprehensive digital design and manufacturing solution, NX allows the selection of tools and methodologies that best suits client’s specific design challenge. With features such as the capability to work directly with design data from other CAD systems, NX is a uniquely powerful assembly design and mockup environment with processspecific design aids, drafting and 3D annotation. It helps to work significantly faster than with general-purpose CAD tools.

Another offering of PROLIM is the NX CAM Express which is a CADneutral machining software application. Coupling CAM Express with Solid Edge provides the designer and programmer with CAD-to-CAM associativity. Synchronous Technology tools are built into CAM Express and can operate with CAD data from any CAD modeler in preparation for machining.
CAD Conversion services from PROLIM, offer clients a well established system that includes documentation methods and infrastructure to translate their design data (both manually and from CAD systems) to other systems, efficiently and economically. The company implements various modeling approaches for assemblies, analysis, manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and digital mockups.

With the purpose to reduce design decisions from end products, PROLIM also provides reverse engineering which is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. Clients can reconstruct the model with little or no additional knowledge about the procedures involved in the original production.

PROLIM has been part of several global dream teams to design and engineer various product development programs such as the Indian defense surface to air missile programs the U.S., Japanese and European automotive and aerospace programs, and have seen the successes of major corporations in implementing these CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM tools.

With over 22 years in various leadership roles Prabhu Patil, the CEO of PROLIM has extensively contributed to the success of Siemens PLM, UGS/EDS, SDRC and IBM PLM. Under his leadership, the company aims to apply its thought leadership to help companies build innovative products by leveraging our IT and PLM solutions—with a vision to put ‘Life’ into a product’s lifecycle.
