Industrial equipment companies need consistent and accurate bill of materials to feed downstream business processes and to link this information with their ERP. With equipment lifespans extending into years and even decades, they must be able to trace the history of every change that was made. Locating the right information for design reuse, based on product configuration information, is a plus.
Enterprise BOM and Change Process helps you manage your end-to-end change management process. Your company has A to Z traceability and the ability to reuse designs that can be found thanks to a powerful search engine that combs through non-geometric information to find the product most suited to the development at hand. This shortens development cycles, helps avoid past design mistakes and ensures new design compliancy with corporate standards. Information can be fed into your company’s ERP for peripheral activities such as purchasing, legal and marketing.
Key capabilities and benefits:
Multi-discipline BOM management.
Change management traceability and lessons learned avoiding past design errors.
Real-time exchange of part, BOM, operational, manufacturing cost and inventory data with ERP.
