Description

Increasing business, product and process complexities affect operating margins and are driving companies to find business solutions which foster innovation and improve efficiencies.  In most industries today, the complexity and rate at which new products need to be developed has already out-paced the rate at which many companies can produce them. One of the significant bottlenecks in this process is new part supply chain planning in advance of production.  As new products are introduced, with market-specific functions and options, the new part supply chain challenge is compounded.

Product Engineer with New Part Request enables companies to innovate and improve efficiencies for global product development by incorporating the following best business practices:

  • Reduce design and BOM errors and enable innovation through the automatic generation and update of data driven, fully connected, multi-discipline design and engineering product views
  • Accelerate product launch in multiple markets, by enabling parallel business processes, including supplier part planning, directly from the context of the product engineering bill of material
  • Enable global product teams, including global supply chains, to efficiently collaborate on, approve and implement product changes through a common, automated  process

Key features & benefits

  • Bring industry-leading products to market quicker and more reliably by leveraging consistent company part processes and optimizing part reuse.

  • Respond rapidly to market opportunities by streamlining new part development for product definition and improvement.
