  • Real-time, configurable Change Request and Change Order workflows

    Formal and fast-track workflows are provided, which can be easily configured to match an organization’s exact process.

    • Change workflows provide a graphical representation of those processes to everyone within the organization
    • The progress of specific Change Requests or Change Orders are managed real-time
    • Monitoring status helps to quickly identify and resolve potential bottlenecks

  • Change Management within a fully integrated PLM environment

    Change Request and Change Order processes are fully integrated with the other information.

    • Full details of the components or sub-assemblies subject to a particular change are just a quick click away
    • Product stakeholders across the organization fully understand what a change will affect, and what its impact will be on parent assemblies and products
    • Historic change records can be viewed and interrogated, providing traceability of exactly what items were modified at that time

  • Change notifications and real-time ‘to-do’ list

    Those involved in a stage of the change process are automatically notified when that stage is reached.

    • The input required from each individual is outlined in a ‘to-do’ list, unique to them
    • Constant reminders are sent with required input and location details
    • Other stakeholders, not directly involved in a process, can subscribe to notifications

  • Historical change traceability

    All Change Requests and Change Orders remain fully traceable once complete.

    • Historical change processes can be accessed by any authorized person within the organization
    • Each step of the process is recorded, outlining who actioned that step, when, and any comments
    • Provides an audit trail recording every stage of product change, helping to achieve compliance

  • Digital signatures

    Process workflow stages can be specified as requiring a user password for sign-off.

    • Only those authorized can sign-off workflow stages
    • Digital signature capability provides another security layer, ensuring it is that actual person carrying out an action
    • This additional level of security provides greater assurance in the validity of critical change processes

  • Third-party change process participation

    Cloud-based PLM offers secure third party access.

    • Partners, suppliers and even customers can provide input into a change process
    • Strategic suppliers can review and authorizes a change
    • Collaboration with third parties helps reduce lead times and the risk of error due to miscommunication
