Modular Machine Engineering Process Management

To effectively manage product and process complexity and to control costs, companies that provide machinery and industrial products must implement a modularized product development strategy based on common product architectures. Our Modular Machine Engineering Process Management solution for the Industrial Machinery industry supports Engineer to Order, Configure to Order, and Assembly to Order processes to help establish common processes configuring and managing a family of products while defining functional modules (subsystems) that can be easily modified to meet a customer’s specific requirements and related changes.

Based upon module design methodology, we provide mechanisms for the engineers to systematically reuse common components, or even whole system modules, to build new machines or a complete new range of machines

Our solution helps ensure an accurate configuration of the machine.This will give you confidence that the bill of material contains the right components having the right revision, and if a reused module is correctly and completely referred in the new machine design. It saves the efforts and time for the engineers to search, identify and copy the right revision of an existing module even when many changes have to be managed.

New modules can also be modified from a separated copy from an existing module. Therefore, it avoids unintended changes of the existing design and the new module can be included in the machine platform for future reuse. With this mechanism, for any machine, the engineers can easily identify and track which component of which revision is used through its product lifecycle. If any change or problem is identified in the future, the impact can be easily determine.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Adaptable PLM Foundation

Manage and coordinate multi-site and multi-CAD machine engineering deployments across your business. Establish and navigate machinery part/component class hierarchies, and view attributes.

Bill of Materials Management

Generate and manage a single, secure, multi-disciplinary Bill-of-Materials from concept through obsolescence, that encompasses all machine configurations, with the ability to create, visualize and update the BoM from any discipline.

Document Management & Publishing

Author and manage machine related documents and specifications to create text, 2D/3D illustrations from imported CAD model, JT, or BoM data to generate machine design specifications, regulatory documents, or quotes.

Mechanical Design Management

Effectively manage programs, projects, resources, tasks and schedules by integrating all your mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) data in a single product data management (PDM) environment to improve engineering productivity.

Simulation Management

Integrate and manage machine design processes and data across engineering disciplines including: mechanical, electrical, electronics and formula design; software engineering; engineering.

Sourcing & Supplier Integration

Create and exchange packages of machine information with suppliers, and establish a design context so suppliers only see the machine data they need when opening the files in their native CAD systems, modify and save it back, all within a secure portal.

Verification & Validation

Define and understand the relationships and dependencies between multi-domain machine design objects and product requirements needed to continuously verify machine design compliance to those requirements across all possible configurations.
