Based on a survey conducted in summer 2006, the CAD/CAM Association of Finland (CCY) has charted the state of the Finnish CAE/PLM market year 2005. The survey was targeted at actual software users to provide a realistic picture of the situation.
A large section of the survey was dedicated to Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), including document management, erp, companies own in-house software and more. However, among commercial PDM/PLM systems Modultek's Aton keeps the market leading position.
As many as 25% of attended companies use the Aton software.
The previous surveys were conducted in 1999 and 2004, when Modultek was holding the market leading position as well.
The survey in full is published in the 2/2006 issue of ValokynTM magazine (in Finnish).
