+++Field Report About SmartSearch Solution At General Motors Europe, Adam Opel AG+++ 

As Director Virtual Design Operations & Systems Development, Sylke Rosenplänter (General Motors Europe, Adam Opel AG) is responsible for the tool SmartSearch, the company-wide search engine.

Running since 2011, the solution has been extended and maintained independently by GM’s IT since 2015. At the symposium, Mrs. Rosenplänter will give a field Report about the challenges and their solutions, its benefits and how the solution is “lived” throughout the enterprise.

Those who live for cars need data transparency in engineering. CONWEAVER SmartSearch has made it possible.

SmartSearch links eight key applications in Engineering (i.e. TeamCenter-Database, Change-Management-System, Bill of Material, Issue-Management, Engineering Standards), incorporating Design, Change Management, Work Orders, Issue Reports and Product Part Information. It supports more than 13.000 engineers globally as an intelligent Linked Data search engine in their daily work. Since its introduction, the number of users has grown constantly.
