PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), the Product Development Company announced a partnership with IHS, Inc (NYSE: IHS) to deliver electronic components content to users of PTC Windchill. Windchill is a content and process management solution that helps companies optimize their product development process. Electronics companies today face a difficult challenge to comply with new environmental regulations from the European Union (RoHS and WEEE), as well as emerging regulations from across the globe. The partnership between PTC and IHS will provide the foundation by which a comprehensive environmental regulatory compliance management solution will be offered to address these challenges. This solution provides tools that help companies to manage component compliance data, determine the compliance of a product structure or BOM against a selected regulation (e.g., RoHS), and manage the change process to bring a non-compliant product structure into compliance.
