Every day, manufacturing engineers face the challenge of ensuring that process plans, manufacturing bill-of-materials (mBOMs), and work instructions accurately reflect the current engineering design. Typically, it’s not until the design is completed that Design Engineering involves Manufacturing Engineering to define “how” and where a product is to be made. But if Manufacturing Process Management (MPM) could be done in sync with Engineering, operating on the same design data, it could positively impact product cost, accuracy of manufacturing deliverables, and development cycle time.
Our mBOM software will enhance efficiency of manufacturing engineers, associatively link mBOM software to the source engineering design information, so that mBOMs always reflect Engineering’s current design.
PTC Windchill MPMLink – an integral PLM application designed for manufacturing engineers – is an ideal solution because it gives manufacturing engineers the tools they need to digitally design and manage all of their process plan deliverables concurrently with design.
