The need to get more customized, high-quality products to market faster has driven manufacturers to distribute production over many plants and suppliers. Consequently, manufacturers are looking for technologies and methodologies that allow them to efficiently author process plans that reflect the right product configurations. They need software tools that can align engineering bills of materials (eBOMs), manufacturing bills of materials (mBOMs) and bills of process (BOPs) in a single environment that provides full control of the product development and manufacturing planning process
The Tecnomatix process design and management solution allows design and manufacturing engineers to concurrently develop product and process planning definitions. This ensures that manufacturing constraints can be reconciled during product design, resulting in more efficient manufacturing plans.
