Whilst the role of PLM is about information, how it is produced and handled, disseminated and shared, its goals have an impact on the whole business of any company engaged in its practices. What is most important when considering and looking at a PLM system?
Order fulfilment support
From identifying long lead items early in the project to assembly documentation, Sovelia PLM can help fulfil all of your needs. The ability to access the right information, at the right time in the process by the right person should be fundamental to the solution we provide or that you should expect.
Right information at the right time in the right format to the right person
Although other systems provide secondary document types, such as instructions, drawings and machine files this information is nothing without order. Intelligently selecting the right information linked from the Bill of Materials is the secret to our uniqueness.
An example of this is somebody assembling components - they need to access the right information for their specific part of the process. Through the Bill of materials and the production view the correct parts, their drawings and instructions can be access from the system. This allows people to focus on the current task in hand.
