Bill of Materials Management

Maintain a single version of the truth

ENOVIA Bill of Materials Management empowers product engineers to create and maintain a complete, accurate, and up-to-date bill of materials (BOMs).  Today, most products require contributions from multiple disciplines including mechanical, electrical and software engineering.  This increases product complexity and, therefore, the task of creating an accurate BOM and maintaining it as changes occur through the product development process.  Enterprise stakeholders depend on an accurate BOM to purchase, manufacture, sell, and support products.  ENOVIA provides a consolidated, fully connected global or site-specific view of the bill of materials, and a common automated development and change process to maintain accuracy.  The result is improved collaboration, less rework, higher product quality and lower development costs.

Configuration and Change Management

Configuration and Change Management

Ensure business agility

Today, agility to quickly deliver product variants to the market is critical for companies seeking to meet rapidly changing consumer demand for personalized products.   ENOVIA Configuration Management helps manufacturers with highly configurable products manage global product designs and bill of materials containing all variants.  Product designers and engineers create product configurations for analysis or to validate supported product options

Development organizations must also address the challenge of increased product and process complexity.  ENOVIA Change Management facilitates a unified enterprise-wide change process across all impacted organizations to confirm approval and validation of changes before implementation.  A common change process increases productivity, improves collaboration and ensures proper notifications to reduce errors.

Design Management for High Tech

Design Management for High Tech

Efficently Manage Designs

In the high tech industry, effective design management requires that all designers share the exact same data and design environment.  Administration of the design environments of geographically dispersed design teams is greatly simplified with centralized administration at the enterprise level.   Identification and tracking of defects associated with IP blocks, and the ability to share ideas, engineering change information and to resolve product development issues and defects amongst geographically dispersed development teams are critical success factors.

ENOVIA offers a unique modular approach to design data management which is optimized for efficient design reuse and multisite collaboration. IP blocks managed as modules are hierarchically combined into designs which are correct-by-construction. Data is managed at the file level within a module, and at the modular level of abstraction as hierarchical connections between modules. As the design changes, new data is automatically...

Global Product Development

Target Zero Prototypes and Zero BOM Errors

In this new age of manufacturing, it’s no surprise that news about your product launch reaches consumers across the globe instantaneously. However, if the new product is not immediately available in each region, consumers quickly move on to other alternatives. Gone are the days when a company could launch a product first in the developed market and then subsequently launch the product in the developing world. A well-executed global launch is fast becoming a business imperative to achieving a higher return on investment.

IP Classification and Protection

IP Classification and Protection

Secure Intellectual Property

A company’s ability to leverage and protect intellectual property (IP) without exceptions is critical to short and long-term success.  ENOVIA IP Classification enables companies to accelerate product development and shorten time-to-market through reuse of design components and product documentation; increase reliability, quality and lower cost by reusing previously validated product content; and improved collaboration by enabling users across the enterprise to find and add their own product content.

ENOVIA IP Protection protects IP without compromising a company’s ability to effectively collaborate both internally and externally.  From a single enterprise-wide platform, organizations are able to manage all of their relevant product data and safely share that information according to organization, nationality or physical location. A common set of security rules and exception classification framework ensures authorized access and prevents unauthorized disclosure of intellectual...

Product Planning and Program Management

Deliver projects on-time and under budget

Today, many companies still manage programs with disconnected resource, project and authoring applications.  The result is manual, time-consuming, and error prone collection and consolidation of program data from which critical business decisions are made.  ENOVIA Product Planning and Program Management associates the definition and development of the product portfolio with the tracking of the projects used to govern it.  Implications of portfolio decisions can be quickly assessed against the project schedule.  As a result, a project manager can take action to resolve issues with a full understanding of the impact to the portfolio.  Governance is standardized using best-in-class business processes across the extended enterprise.

Deliverables-based project management links product development data to project execution.  With “invisible governance,” projects update with real-time deliverable status providing the ability to identify potential issues and risks before they...

Quality and Compliance

Quality and Compliance

Raise quality and ensure compliance

Today, many manufacturers have quality management systems (QMS) that only address quality at a functional level.  The result is a lack of full end-to-end visibility or common use of best practices to optimize quality processes across the organization.   ENOVIA Quality Management provides an effective and efficient QMS to enforce common quality processes, support global and local regulatory requirements and manage all quality events  across the enterprise.

In many industries, such as Healthcare and Life Sciences, ensuring regulatory compliance is business-critical.  ENOVIA Compliance Management helps ensure proper product approvals and certificates in support of business sustainability as well as product safety and effectiveness.

Global operating companies must ensure materials compliance to regional environmental directives. With ENOVIA Compliance Management, compliance managers can implement a well-defined process for requesting, reviewing, and approving materials compliance. ...
