PTC, The Product Development Company®, today announced that Continental has selected Windchill, PTC's PLM (product lifecycle management) solution, as its global standard for product development in its Automotive Group.

"PLM is a key component of our IT-Strategy, which aims at standardizing and harmonizing the IT landscape at Continental Automotive," said Ralf Brunken, CIO at Continental Automotive Group. "As a result of our assessment among several PLM vendors, we selected PTC's Windchill for its strong technological performance and for the company's value-oriented approach which both are critical when engaging in such a strategic and long-term partnership."

Continental will replace its existing PLM system and standardize its three automotive divisions - Chassis & Safety, Powertrain and Interior - on PTC's Windchill platform. The integral, web-based Windchill solution will be used as the worldwide PLM backbone for engineering change, multi-CAD data management, ECAD data management as well as for third-party integration, thus enabling seamless process integration and global collaboration. Windchill is ultimately expected to support more than 12,000 users in both engineering and non-engineering departments.

"In today's global economy, a PLM solution is mission critical for a company in the automotive industry," said Wolfgang Schaefer, CFO at Continental Corporation. "We expect PTC's Windchill solution to improve our engineering processes and product quality."

James E. Heppelmann, CEO-elect and president at PTC commented, "Shrinking margins, globalization, and increasing regulatory requirements have put strong pressure on the highly competitive automotive industry. In such an environment, companies have an intense need to optimize their business processes. We are thrilled that Continental has chosen Windchill to support this critical business initiative. In addition to providing world-class technology, our global service organization will support Continental in defining world-class engineering processes and introducing Windchill to the extended enterprise. We look forward to expanding our long-standing partnership with Continental."
