Product datamanagement (PDM) has to serve as a central knowledge repository for process and product history, and promotes integration & data exchange among all business users who interact with products — including project managers, engineers, sales people, buyers, and quality assurance teams. But its not happening in real-time environment.
Challenges faced in Power & process Industry:
A)Spending countless hours for the design approvals Engineering Change Orders (ECO)–more time to prepare and convey Engineering change notice (ECN) and getting approvals.
B)Has to maintain a whole Revision history of a design evolution,Errors of manual approaches to be captured and also Duplicate file creation has to stop.
C)Unable to collaborate with multiple location organizations
D)Difficult to deliver the right file, at right time to the right person
E) Difficult to Create, maintain, manipulate and store the Bill of Materials (BOM) data to support downstream operations.
A) By Automatic electronic workflow system in SolidWorks PDM,significantly reduce the time required for the design approvals of Engineering change orders (ECO).
B) SolidWorks PDM Track changes, maintain a whole revision history of a design’s evolution, and errors of manual approaches can be avoided and also helps to avoid creation of duplicate files .
C) SolidWorks PDM allows replicating the data from one location to another location without much effort.This global connectivity helps in reducing the time to market of product.
D) But with SolidWorks PDM, usingworkflow and transition action- data can assigned automatically to a right person at right time with notification
E) SolidWorks PDM software offers many tools which enables to handle BOM data more efficiently and also to export this data for the use in downstream applications.
