Product Development Lifecycle Management
Getting Control of Your BOMs
Bringing complex products to market and maintaining them through their life is a multi-step process. It requires managing bills of material (BOM) not only across mechanical, electrical, and software disciplines but in the extended supply chain as well.
It's Not Just About Parts
Developing complex products, manufacturing and maintaining them through their life requires managing evolving product configurations embodying information developed by multiple groups inside the organization and in the supply chain. The challenge of managing complex configurations can lead to costly errors and delays.
Leverage All Your CAD Data
PDM provides secure and consistent management of the creation, change and archive of information from all popular MCAD and ECAD systems. Integration with PDM/PLM makes it available across the enterprise as well as supply chain partners and fully integrates it with part and BOM structures.
Integrated Quality and Compliance Management
The Quality Management System application addresses this gap in quality management processes by integrating quality planning into PLM, where it can be linked to product designs and business-critical processes such as change management. The result is a comprehensive solution that provides cross-disciplinary teams and the extended supply chain with powerful capabilities to identify and manage risk, improve quality, meet customer requirements, and attain environmental, safety, medical, and other forms of compliance.
Project Management enables organizations to manage new product development and engineer-to-order processes for complex projects that require global collaboration. By linking deliverables to project tasks, completion status and control are significantly enhanced.
Control Your Components
Component Engineering simplifies electronic component selection, approval, sourcing and compliance processes. Engineers and procurement specialists have instant access to complete, current technical data, as well as obsolescence and compliance information, on hundreds of millions of board-level components from leading manufacturers around the world.
