What is Windchill?

Windchill is the industry-leading PLM software from PTC. Windchill’s open architecture enables easy integration with other enterprise systems, helping you quickly see value from your PLM software. With comprehensive out-of-the-box functionality and the highly-configurable role and task-based apps, you can expand access to valuable product data to stakeholders who don’t typically use PLM while avoiding over-customization and complexity. For manufacturers embarking on digital transformation, Windchill provides a solid foundation for the smart, connected enterprise. By enabling a digital thread of information, manufacturers can build a digital twin, invest in IIoT technology, leverage augmented reality for better collaboration, or explore generative design and additive manufacturing.
