Polarion Integration for Windchill® integrates Siemens Polarion ALM software with PTC Windchill® PLM software.

ALM-PLM Collaboration

Integration users can link elements across systems and expose the relationships in both ALM and PLM systems. Built-in previews of remote elements are available in both systems so that ALM and PLM users benefit from End-to-End traceability without leaving their preferred working environment.

Extended capabilities dedicated to Requirement Management support Polarion ALM as the main tool for storing, authoring and reviewing Product Requirements. Complying products are managed in Windchill® PLM system and can be easily linked to their satisfying requirements in Polarion.

The integration supports PLM-based Change Management processes for both products and requirements. Tasks are tracked in both ALM and PLM environments by orchestrating the Change Management process between environments.
