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 challenges within the global product development process is providing a single, consolidated, fully connected, global view of the combined product design structure and engineering bill of material.  As new products are introduced with market-specific functions and options, the complexity is compounded.

Product Engineer helps companies 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 directly from the context of the product engineering bill of material
  • Enable global product teams to efficiently collaborate on, approve and implement product changes through a common automated  process

Key features & benefits

  • Consolidate part design and related technical document content from multiple engineering tools by providing a single definition of the EBOM.

  • Increase product innovation through improved communication and collaboration with global development teams leveraging 3D visualization and electronic communication including email and ad-hoc workflow

  • Use analysis reports that quickly identify component usage, highlight differences between assemblies, and summarize design changes over time.

  • Reduce cost and time-to-market while defining the enterprise EBOM by searching and reusing standard parts.

  • Build products right the first time by selecting qualified, approved and preferred components.

  • Leverage skills and knowledge of the entreprise and supply chain through institutionalization of cross-functional product development and engineering change processes
