Manufacturing Process Planning

An Integrated Approach to Extend the Digital Thread to the Shop Floor

Take EBOMs to MBOMs with Dynamic Manufacturing Instructions

EBOM to MBOM translation can be hard. They can also be error prone and hard to maintain. With Aras Manufacturing Process Planning engineers can transform EBOM to MBOM while building the Bill of Process (BOP) into discreet steps. BOM reconciliation is made easy and embedded with shop floor ready assembly instructions.
MPP Description

Discover How Aras Manufacturing Process Planning Works

See a brief overview of how Aras Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) can create a process plan using your EBOM to generate an MBOM and Process Plans. This connected methodology ensures that your shop floor instructions are in sync with engineering changes. Engineers can plan tooling and consumables applied to steps, resulting in a Bill of Process.

Extend the Digital Thread to the Shop Floor with Manufacturing Process Planning

Customer Success: Aeronamic

Aeronamic discusses using Aras Innovator MPP as they invest in designs of the future with improved tractability to maintain compliance and control over all of their data across the company.

Creating Manufacturing Instructions

Aras MPP gives manufacturing planners access to the EBOM and the power to restructure to a connected MBOM. Authoring capabilities in MPP help create manufacturing instructions for the shop floor.

The Digital Thread For Manufacturers

The step from engineering to manufacturing is crucial in the Digital Thread. Many companies are still generating MBOMs manually and maintaining shop floor instructions with outdated information.

Digital Thread Executive Summary

Reconcile Your Manufacturing Process Plans

With Aras Manufacturing Process Planning, manufacturing engineers can transform EBOM to MBOM while also building work instructions and process plans, resulting in increased productivity for the team building the MBOM while keeping everything up to date in real-time.

Since MPP is built on the Aras Innovator platform it shares the same flexible data model as other applications. By referencing the EBOM, change impacts can be identified and managed. Version control can be enabled on MBOM, process plans, work instructions, and other items, improving digital thread traceability across the lifecycle.
