Pro/E integration at Mercury - journey

Pro/ Intralink
As is process mapping - understanding current processes and drivers for improvement

Requirements for migration (business and technical)

Formed a core team to test and validate CAD data management Data Integrity (Names, Status, Relationship consistency) and Cleanup
Pending rename (parent child relationships) Duplicate objects , missing files Family table (multiple references, version and status issues)

Worked with GTAC


Common challenges /Support

Phase 1
Assessment Documentation

Phase 2
Data Migration plan Data Analysis clean up

Phase 3
Data Migration Data Analysis UAT

Phase 4
Production Migration Roll out and Support

Good understanding of existing data and target data

Successful migration is a key Build confidence through communication and support Decommission Pro/I
