ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

ENOVIA® X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enables real-time collaboration between product engineering and manufacturing with bi-directional data exchange and sharing of part, bill-of-material (BOM), operational, manufacturing cost and inventory data.

Most companies have standardized on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems for product planning and product engineering and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems for managing manufacturing and financial operations. Both types of systems rely on product information typically represented in the form of a BOM. It is also typical for both systems to allow data modifications to be made at different stages of the product lifecycle. As such, companies need both a process and technology strategy to keep product information synchronized without impacting product development innovation and manufacturing operations efficiency. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enables companies to realize this vision with the following business benefits:

- Provide seamless collaboration and data sharing between product engineering and manufacturing operations for speedier time-to-market

- Ensure that critical design changes are visible throughout the design and manufacturing processes regardless of the system that initiates the change

- Eliminate re-work and late-cycle change notices due to improved BOM accuracy from automatic data transfers

- Reduce product delays by providing manufacturing with early visibility for long lead time items and potential manufacturing issues with designs

  • Provide a seamless information flow between ENOVIA and one or more JD Edwards EnterpriseOne instances
  • Eliminate data entry errors by automatically exchanging “work in process” product information, such as preliminary BOM structures
  • Provide product engineering with early access to manufacturing operations data in real time and in the context of their work
  • Enable end-to-end data and process management without disruption to established system capabilities
  • Eliminate unnecessary duplication of work and improve re-use by providing access to data from each system
  • Provide early warnings for long lead-time components and potential manufacturing design issues by providing manufacturing engineers with visibility to preliminary BOM structures
  • Technology Overview
    ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne places few restrictions on the data model and may be configured to handle a variety of data. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne utilizes only standard available application programming interfaces (API) to ease future upgrades. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne uses password encryption to provide a secure communication channel between ENOVIA and EnterpriseOne. Data access is controlled through ENOVIA role privileges and synchronization of data lifecycles between ENOVIA and EnterpriseOne.
  • Part Data Transfer
    ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne allows for on-demand or process driven part transfers. If necessary, it can be mandatory to use an Engineering Change Order (ECO) for the part transfer. Supporting multiple plant locations with the unique metadata associated with each location and ERP instance is a must in today’s world of acquisitions where companies have manufacturing locations around the world. Users can view and retrieve information from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne while in ENOVIA to assist in design decisions. Examples of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data available in ENOVIA include basic item data, pricing information and specific revision levels with effectivity cut in/out dates.
  • BOM Data Transfer
    ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is most effectively used for the transfer of BOM information between ENOVIA and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne without manual intervention to increase accuracy and throughput to production systems. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne allows for the transfer of a common or a plant-specific BOM that is controlled through the use of an ECO. A single level BOM with associated metadata can be transferred. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne provides pre-transfer checks that allow specific business process protocols to be enforced and the ability to automatically instantiate parts into JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne supports BOM alternatives and quantity rollup as well as reference designators for electronics. From within the ENOVIA user interface, users may query for and display a variety of information about BOMs stored in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Users may select plant location and revision level to display the single level BOM with associated BOM alternatives. ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has the following BOM reporting capabilities: - Display single level JD Edwards EnterpriseOne BOM - Compare EBOM with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Engineering or Production BOM - Display all rev levels of BOM in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne with effectivity dates
  • Change Management Data Transfer
    ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne controls the release of information from an engineering design environment to manufacturing production. ECOs or Manufacturing Change Orders (MCO) associated with the transfer of parts and BOM contain important metadata such as effectivity cut in/out dates and is transferred on change order release.
  • The Role of ENOVIA V6 and PLM 2.0
    ENOVIA X-BOM for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne supports PLM 2.0, product lifecycle management online for everyone, and the ENOVIA V6 values: global collaborative innovation, single PLM platform for intellectual property (IP) management, online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes, and lower cost of ownership.
