Build your CSL Team
Engage with the employees who will contribute to the success of CSL
Before you begin, complete this step:
Your team is one of the most critical components of a successful deployment of CSL. You'll need help from a variety of people to achieve your use cases. Identify who can fulfill these roles on your team:
- Executive sponsor: Responsible for getting organizational buy-in and understanding the value of Creo Simulation Live. They will also be vital in driving process change compliance within the organization, signing authority, and the decision-makers.
- Champion: Accountable for the success of program deployment. Creates the strategy to generate value from CSL. Forms the team responsible for leading the deployment throughout the organization. Closest to the product.
- Process lead: Responsible for ensuring the technology is thriving across the program. Works with IT coordinates training, works with compliance, and more.
- Execution leads: Manages the project and is responsible for driving implementation and executing the champion's plan. They organize subject matter experts and related workshops.
- Subject matter experts: Share their expertise, create existing and future design process documentation to support Creo Simulation Live's end-user training. Their ongoing commitment is vital to move the project forward.
- End-users: Uses the design process created for Creo Simulation Live. They should receive training to learn how to use the process for design and analysis.
- Additional support: Members of IT at your organization can help implement and maintain the technology needed for Creo Simulation Live. They also ensure Creo Simulation Live meets your organization's security and compliance policies.
One person may fill more than one of these roles, or you may have several contributors assigned to each role. Regardless of how you structure your team, make sure there's a leader in place to coordinate across teams and ensure you're achieving your goals.
Identify End Users
The key to successfully using CSL is to engage with the end-users of the tool early on. Your primary end-users include all the engineers who use Creo Parametric to design and need to have those designs analyzed. Involving engineers early will ensure they understand the changes to their workflow and how CSL will improve what they're able to accomplish in their role. With CSL, engineers can design faster and more accurately.
Make sure you include the following end-user types:
- CAD Admin(s)
Roles and Responsibilities
- Systems Administrator Responsible for the upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of Creo. They need to be aware of all the changes made to the system.
- Process Lead Responsible for defining and documenting the overall design process.
- Adoption Lead Responsible for defining the strategy to help end-users reach their goals using Creo Simulation Live. They are vital to introducing and maintaining end-users usage of Creo Simulation Live.
- Engineers & designers Responsible for designing within Creo Parametric and using CSL to analyze and iterate their designs.
- Analysts Responsible for using Creo Simulation Live to analyze the engineers' design and provide feedback.
