Harnessing Engineering Data to Create Connected Process Plans
Date: January 30th, 2020 @ 11:00 AM ET
Summary:The transition from design to manufacturing can be quite complicated, especially when launching a new product. Manufacturing engineers need to ensure that each part is put on in a specific sequence, and that all of the parts they need are contained in the engineering bill of materials (BOM).
Aras Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) can create a process plan using your EBOM to generate an MBOM and process plans while building the Bill of Process (BOP) into discreet steps. BOM reconciliation is made easy and embedded with shop floor ready assembly instructions. Engineers can plan tooling, consumables, and embed instructional graphics rich descriptions needed for that particular step. This connected methodology ensures that your shop floor instructions are in sync with engineering changes and makes process planning easy.
