Redeploying design content for manufacturing reuse is critical to leveraging a PLM deployment. Having design models available to generate CNC programs or help automate CMM inspections improves part production accuracy and reduces time to market. Properly constructing the engineering bill of material so it can generate the manufacturing bill of material ‘view’ helps ensure part use accuracy by enforcing assembly consumption within the manufacturing processes. Alignment ensures proper sequencing of components within the manufacturing environment.
Our experts are experienced in structuring the engineering bill of material so it is prepared for reuse such as managing part inspection content with its design item, developing production tooling from design data, and linking product change meta data so it is associated with every data element that touches the affected item.
