Integrated PLM Solutions at L-3 Communications - Part I

Presented by Ryan Kunz

Often PLM is thought of as just an Engineering tool used to manage documentation or provide a foundation for change control. As such, it is often architected as a silo business system independent of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Manufacturing Execution (ME) systems.

PLM, however, should be treated equally with organizations primary business systems and ideally integrated to ensure optimal efficiencies through out the business process. This webinar explores some of the key benefits of architecting a PLM system in concert with ERP & ME business systems. The following focus areas are addressed:

  • What is the role of PLM in the integrated Solution
  • Integration of Engineering & Manufacturing in one system: - Design Data - Manufacturing Data - Engineering Bill of Material - Manufacturing Bill of Material - Manufacturing Bill of Process
  • Engineering Change vs. Enterprise Change
  • Closing the Requirements Traceability Loop

For more details on the design decisions surrounding an integrated solution see the "Integrated PLM Solutions – Part II"
