IBA Group Launches Start Point

February 13, 2014 

IBA Group launches Start Point, a new software product. The packaged product is designed to create a system of collaborative end–to–end product development and maintenance, product data management (PDM), product lifecycle management (PLM), and electronic document management of engineering data.

With its rich experience in all–round automation of manufacturing enterprises and a long–term cooperation with PTC, IBA Group takes the next logical step by offering Start Point, its new proprietary software product.

Based on PTC Creo and PTC Windchill, Start Point enables companies to:

  • Shorten the time of design and technological processes. The optimal settings implemented in the product provide the ease of implementation, maintenance, and use.
  • Reduce the operating cost of the system and the cost of output products due to the high quality and reliability of the PTC–based system
  • Reduce the operating cost of the system and the cost of output products by increasing the Start Point warranty period up to 2 years comparing to the standard offerings.

Sergey Stepanenko , Head of PDM / PLM Department at IBA Group, comments: “Apart from the basic measured benefits, the use of Start Point contributes to the quality of the products, as it allows for identifying and eliminating the causes of quality deviations and for monitoring remedial actions. Start Point makes it possible to register spoilage in production and to prevent its occurrence as well. Improving quality while reducing the cost of production results in an enhanced performance.”
