Sikorsky Aircraft and Joy Mining Machinery are among the companies incorporating CAD data directly into business processes through the use of the Right Hemisphere Deep Server package.

Right Hemisphere Deep Server is a software application that takes information from CAD systems—including 3D models—and converts it into useful information for users of ERP and other business applications.

Both Sikorsky and Joy Mining are using Right Hemisphere 5 Deep Server, the latest version of the package, which contains a media asset management component that can merge and manage product information from disparate enterprise systems, including product data management (PDM}, ERP, and CRM to fully support a Model Based Definition (MBD) engineering communications strategy.

maintenance training classes, we can also reasonably expect these documents to be much more effective at transferring knowledge to our service personnel and to our customers.   

“We’re also very interested in Deep Server’s ability to publish product graphics and other data, such as product manufacturing information, into a secure 3D Adobe PDF file. Being a global company with offices and customers around the world, this is a particularly attractive option for communicating with our customers and suppliers without potentially compromising intellectual property by sharing actual CAD data.”

Right Hemisphere Deep Server 5 software is helping Sikorsky Aircraft increase its design velocity.tional teams. Ultimately, we’re looking to further enable the Model Based Definition (MBD) Process by facilitating the enterprise-wide consumption of digital engineering datasets.”
