SECURE AND REAL-TIME COLLABORATION
Successfully delivering a compelling experience to customers requires collaboration between a company’s employees, customers, and suppliers. ENOVIA provides a secure and real-time environment for all users to find, share, review, and report on product information. Collaboration can be loosely managed or more tightly controlled with cross-functional change processes depending on the company’s business needs.
From product data management to integrated design management, Global Design Management solutions support the product development process by giving early visibility to design information and allowing the enterprise to collaborate before final product decisions are made.
• Provide real-time access to the right data at the right time
• Provide access to other stakeholders across the company (product engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, etc.) to design data in real time throughout the entire product lifecycle
• Operate across multiple CAD authoring tools
Enable bill of material management across the product lifecycle—from as-designed to as-manufactured, as-planned, and all the way to as-built and as-serviced stages.
Imagine your company has 20 concurrent projects, 1500 engineers and 150 suppliers. Meanwhile, your engineers are introducing 5000 new parts per year! With Product Planning and Program Management solutions from ENOVIA, clients can precisely orchestrate even the most complex of processes.
ENOVIA Product Planning and Program Management delivers “invisible governance” which provides the ability to identify potential issues and risks before they fully manifest. With invisible governance, you can drive project updates with deliverable status.
Define conceptual product definitions that can be reused across a multiple series of products, satisfy market specifications, and provide many possible optional capabilities. These conceptual product definitions serve as a framework for defining variant products that are configurable and drive the generation of engineering bills-of-material (EBOMs).
Companies are facing complexity from many areas during the development and launch of complex products and services. Market opportunities exist for good ideas, but they may be in many locations, and they may involve variations to serve those markets. In addition, IP is being created that captures the product complexity, including specifications, bills-of-materials, requirements, geometry, models, etc. Finally, the processes that will be used to define, model and execute will need to be properly managed in order to launch the products globally and simultaneously. All of this intellectual property (IP) is what drives the firm’s competitive advantage in the market. Therefore the firm’s ability to leverage and protect this IP without exceptions is critical to the company’s short-term and long-term success.
Today, effective quality practices have involved formalizing a process after a quality issue has been found or raised. These issues come from the field, or from the development and launch process itself. Some solutions focus on the various tools for quality issue prevention, such as Quality Functional Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), etc. These disciplines and processes have been touted as the mechanism for issue prevention and quality improvement for years.
In the Experience Economy, customers have transformed to take a more active role in communicating their requirements and preferences for the products that they ultimately purchase. This phenomenon requires the ability to manage customer requirements not as an afterthought, but as an inherent part of the product development process. The ENOVIA requirements-driven systems engineering approach to developing products with the customer’s desired experiences is visible to all stakeholders involved.
