Process Plan Management
Process planners are able to create and manage process plans that can be used to create shop orders and disposition plans in the Operations Execution product. Process planners can create unique manufacturing process flows, manage shop floor resources used by the process plans, and are provided tools to manage the business rules to be applied to each element of the process flow.
Value: Provides an easy-to-use planning solution when it is important to provide users access to pre-defined process plans that can be used to create shop orders or used to support EPM disposition planning.

DELMIA Order Planning includes tools to establish and control configurable business rules and permissions for each unique process execution object.
Value: Prevents rework and quality defects due to failure of process execution users to perform required tasks, obtain required approvals, or collect required data.
Complex manufactured end item products such as an airplane are extremely difficult and time consuming to get out the door and into the hands of the customer. The aircraft must be certified for airworthiness, and the customer needs an opportunity to accept the product even if a few minor issues are not yet resolved. The Operations Execution and EPM products provide a way to monitor and manage planned and emergent issues associated to each end item unit.
Another key unit management feature is the ability to lock a unit from accepting new shop orders or nonconformance documents in order to facilitate certification processes that require that the product is in a known state during the certification process. Example: Airworthiness Certification
Value: Significantly reduces time and effort to manage events associated to the current state of the final product. Unit management creates a lean process resulting in significant customer ROI and decreases the time it takes to get paid for the final product.
