Since the very beginning, keytech's associates have believed in individual data management solutions based on international standards. Reiner Heimsoth (Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing.)

The founding of keytech in 1993 allowed him to focus more consistently on his own ideas and take responsibility for the company strategy. Andreas Grothus (Dipl.-Ing.) Since the late 1980s, Andreas Grothus has primarily been involved in implementing useroriented applications and user interfaces in the context of CAD and PLM. He now continues in this same vein as a co-founder of the company. Thomas Rudolph (Dipl.-Ing.) With over 20 years of experience in PLM, Thomas Rudolph is responsible for the continuous and innovative development of the keytech product family. Thomas Adamek (Dipl.-Ing.) Thomas Adamek is primarily responsible for providing expert technical sales advice to customers. With over 15 years of experience in PLM, he has been in charge of sales since the company was first founded.

keytech – Looking at the big picture

It isn't just the wider economic context that is growing more complex, but the links within and between businesses, too. As a result, there is an acute need for consistent data management as a control mechanism. The interaction between the various areas of a company involved in a given process needs to be harmonized so as to support the product development process throughout the entire product lifecycle. CAD/CAE/CAM: One platform for all applications A holistic analysis of product structures includes mechanical systems, electrical engineering and production, even when the systems used originate from different suppliers. This is the only way to ensure documents are correctly assigned so they are available for reuse. A complete history of all documents describing a product enhances quality by eliminating sources of error and also cuts development times.

Collaboration: Working in parallel A fully mapped product structure and integration into corporate processes are essential for optimized workflows and maximum productivity. With time frames and budgets getting smaller all the time, this is a key requirement for remaining competitive in hotly contested markets. After all, only companies that control their processes and workflows transparently can operate successfully in expanded and distributed teams (concurrent engineering).

ERP Integration: Eliminating barriers between systems Consistent data management is only assured when it is integrated in the company's processes. This includes linking data management to your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and other business systems. This deep integration gives all relevant areas of the company instant, early and controlled access to data.

Globalization: Solutions without borders keytech creates structures that enable businesses to act globally. Multilingual production data, documentation and other material accelerate communication and processing in all areas of the company. Coherent and effective solutions guarantee the availability of product data, structures and files around the globe.

Automatic document generation and distribution also form part of this process.
