Integration between FORAN and Windchill for the Type 26 program

SENER has closed a contract with UK-based BAE Systems PLC for the integration between the systems FORAN, by SENER, and PTC’s Windchill Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to be used in the design and manufacturing activities of the BAE System’s program Type 26.

According to the contract, FORAN – Windchill Integration (FWI) will be implemented in BAE Systems Naval Ships in Scotstoun and Portsmouth. FWI is being deployed following a phased approach and key milestones include: publishing and synchronization of Type 26 items and components, carried out on July 2015; change management, planned for December 2015; and configuration management, expected on December 2016.

BAE Systems Naval Ships will use FWI as one of the key business transformation activities for the Type 26 program with the main objective of improving the built-in quality of the Bill of Materials (BoM) by integrating CAD & PLM applications and processes.

As a result of this contract, 250 licences of FWI have been installed. Other services delivered by SENER include training, customisation and on-site technical assistance in Scotstoun and Portsmouth.
