Fishbowl Solutions Releases Data Integrity Tool, HPGL Compare, to Automate Pro/ENGINEER Drawing Validation with Windchill PDMLink

Minneapolis—October 23, 2009—Fishbowl Solutions, Inc., a software, services and consulting company delivering solutions for the PTC® Product Development System (PDS), has released HPGL Compare as an add-on to linkTuner, an out-of-the-box solution for PTC Windchill PDMLink® and Pro/INTRALINK®.

When companies upgrade to new versions of CAD and/or PDM/PLM software, some level of validation activities is best practice for ensuring that their Pro/ENGINEER data is accurate and the software still performs as intended. Validation is required for those companies looking to comply with certain FDA software validation policies, such as medical device companies. Because validation is often manual, it can take weeks or months to complete.

HPGL Compare addresses the challenge of validating Pro/ENGINEER drawings, ensuring they are an exact match before and after a migration or upgrade. If HPGL Compare finds inconsistencies, it provides a graphical report of the changes so engineers can focus their efforts. Automating this validation process saves companies time, money and helps to mitigate risk. HPGL Compare is an add-on to Fishbowl Solutions’ linkTuner, which helps companies test and validate Windchill PDMLink system performance.

With HPGL Compare a Minnesota-based medical device company migrating from Pro/INTRALINK 3.4 to Windchill PDMLink 9.1 was able to validate more than 4,000 of their Pro/ENGINEER drawings in one day, compared to the months and hundreds of man hours it would have taken to manually validate.
