Since the advent of mass production, step-by-step work instructions describing part fabrication through final assembly processes have been required for manufacturing operations. Yet even in today’s world, it is still a challenge to get the most current work instructions to where they need to be, which is at the point of manufacture on the shop floor. Global manufacturers are especially challenged with multiple sites, numerous product variants, changing production setups and a lack of a central repository for managing work instructions. Manufacturers need a work instruction solution that not only provides the most up-to-date information, but also can clearly demonstrate the process steps using 2D/3D visualization tools.
The Tecnomatix manufacturing work instructions solution provides an integrated environment where all product, process, resource and plant information is fully associated under a managed environment. Using Teamcenter’s configuration capabilities, process documentation can be automatically updated through revision management, allowing you to react to changes quickly and easily.
