Exotic Metals Forming Company are a company of innovators and specialists in aerospace sheet metal fabrication & design. Exotic Metals contracted Sherpa Design and our affiliate company, Applied CAx, to provide streamlining and maintenance for their Teamcenter PLM installation.
We reached out to Exotic to give us some insights into how the process went, how it benefited them, and where they are today with their PLM environment.
What was the situation for Exotic Metals before you brought on Sherpa Design/Applied CAx to help with the PLM challenges you were facing?
"Prior to partnering with Sherpa Design/Applied CAx for our PLM needs there were many challenges our company was facing. For the infrastructure implemented with the outside consulting contracted, the experience of our company with Teamcenter was a system that crashed frequently, included slow response times (with a negative moniker being uttered by our users), and there was limited consulting expertise to identify the fundamental flaws in the infrastructure and the associated settings within Teamcenter. In conjunction with new personnel brought in to our IT department, Sherpa Design/Applied CAx leveraged their expertise and guided our company in establishing a robust platform that stabilized the Teamcenter installation and got our company on the right path for developing Teamcenter as more of a fundamental building block for our future business processes."
