Starting your PLM journey? Here's something to think about.

Collaboration is core and at the heart of everything that Sovelia PLM stands for. It enables sharing of design, product information, and knowledge transfer, involving all elements of the business and wider partners into the design process. Multi departments, multisite, it doesn’t matter with Sovelia PLM solution.

It’s no secret that the essential role of product lifecycle management (PLM) is to inform or put the right information into the right hands at the right time. Any professional involved in a product’s development or manufacture, any organisation that sells a product or has customers who uses it, or procurement who specify and purchases it, they all need information to assist and drive their involvement with the product and ultimately a products success.

What is sometimes less well understood, is how to capture the information and present it in a format everybody can work with, contribute to where appropriate, and share. If a company has very little or intermittent collaboration today, by adding a PLM software solution it enables more people to share more information, in a meaningful way.

 

Has your organisation got answers to these questions and secure, automated processes to support them?

  • How is the Engineering or Design department communicating with the rest of the organisation?

  • Who do Engineers or Designers need information from and who do they need to send information to?

  • Which other departments do they interact with? How is that information captured?

Supplier Collaboration with Sovelia PLM extranet

28 July 2021

The role of the Sovelia PLM Extranet is two fold; to collaborate both with members of the organisation and the members of the supply chain outside of the company firewall. It provides a safe and robust way to collaborate and distribute information with external parties.

Production Process planning

21 July 2021

The way the product gets designed isn't necessarily the way to assemble the product. The "as designed" Engineering Bill of Materials (BOM) needs to be reordered so that the product can be effectively assembled. Sovelia PLM includes tools to reorder the Engineering BOM to a view that better suits production.
