The ENOVIA PLM system on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a Dassault Systèmes’ comprehensive enterprise solution for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).
In particular, it includes the management of technical and accompanying product documentation throughout an entire contract, including integration into CAD construction tools, complete BOM structure management as well as change and approval management, and it also allows you to manage and validate information about the current state and course of a project.
The introduction of PLM is a strategic step towards streamlining business process management. Demonstrable benefits include centralized access to real-time product and project information, full control over changeover and approval processes, and management of all technical and accompanying documentation.
PLM HELPS IN THE AREAS OF:
Management, completeness and up-to-dateness of technical documentation
One of the main benefits of a PLM solution is simply to facilitate the management and completeness of the technical documentation across all phases of the product lifecycle. ENOVIA enables full control and management of data and their versioning with direct integration into commonly used CAD systems.
Management of BOM structures
In ENOVIA, it is possible to define BOM items not only of mechanical parts that are usually created in the CAD system, but also to supplement the structure of electronic components, software, etc. Standard parts can be organized and classified in libraries and repeatedly used in different projects. The prepared BOM is transferred to the Manufacturing Information System (ERP) by means of integration.
Management of change and innovation processes
Manufacturing companies often encounter inefficiencies in the change management process, whether they are approving and managing changes in product development or customer input and control requirements for product changes. In ENOVIA, change is resolved through predefined processes – from a proposal for change and a change order linked to processing, to change action and releasing change into manufacturing in ERP.
Monitoring a project in terms of time, budget and quality
A PLM solution collects data in a single software environment, which means much easier and faster data access, not only for managers but especially for the needs of technical departments. In a unified environment that users have an access to, they can quickly find the necessary information about a project, product or responsibilities and deadlines for fulfilling individual tasks.
