Engineering and Manufacturing Change Management
Engineering and manufacturing changes are central to how industrial machinery manufacturers meet build-to-order and customer specific requirements. Ability to coordinate engineering and manufacturing changes effectively is essential to reduce errors and speed up build-to-order processes. Z PDS is an ideal solution for implementing the engineering and manufacturing change process cross-functionally as well as for connecting all the systems (Design PLM, ERP, Supply Chain and Manufacturing Execution systems) that play a role in Engineering and Manufacturing Change Management that drive build-to-order design and manufacturing.
Continuous Improvement Processes
Industrial machinery have a long life in the field. Ability to continuously improve machines that are on the field leads to improved uptime, availability, and higher customer service levels. Z PDS has out of the box cross-functional process templates for product/process improvement requests, customer complaints, warranty requests, return materials, corrective action requests, non-conformances and deviations. In addition, Z PDS supports different types of root cause analyses as part of continuous improvement processes.
