PTC Windchill as a global PLM system

Challenges & Initiatives

With the implementation of Windchill Vaillant Group aspired to reduce …

  • reduce complexity, time-to-market and infrastructure.
  • introduce systems engineering and smart products.


Vaillant has narrowed down to two leading systems: PLM with Windchill for defining material data, bills of materials (design & manufacturing), change and document management, and ERP with SAP for resource planning or production control. As a result, customers now have the optimal customer experience.

With a strong history with PTC and SAP, we started our PLM initiative with the goal of achieving even better and more efficient product development. It is clear to us that this will permanently change the way we work at Vaillant Group.
