CVG-Avtec Implements Product Lifecycle Management Solution From Omnify Software

TEWKSBURY, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 13, 2012 -- Omnify Software, a leading provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for electronic, medical, mechanical, and defense manufacturers, today announces its latest Omnify Empower PLM implementation case study featuring CVG-Avtec. For almost three decades, CVG, Inc. and Avtec Systems, Inc. (CVG-Avtec), a Kratos Company, has offered systems engineering services to the aerospace and defense industries, providing innovative custom hardware, software, algorithms, simulations and analyses to solve its customers' toughest real-world engineering problems.

As a leading provider of advanced data communications systems, CVG-Avtec generates a large volume of complex engineering products. This environment inevitably results in a high quantity of engineering changes. The company was initially managing their engineering change/revision process with Excel spreadsheets. Managing detailed change information with spreadsheets did not provide the security or history tracking that CVG-Avtec needed to effectively manage product revisions and the manual entry of information was highly susceptible to data inaccuracies. The company also tried using their existing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system to manage revisions. Tracking different revisions of the same Bill of Material (BOM) in their ERP system proved to be time-consuming and tedious, requiring the creation of a different BOM part number for each revision which did not have any relation to each other. CVG-Avtec needed a way to easily and accurately track all BOM changes and have the ability to view previous revisions with a clear history of the product's lifecycle.

Today, CVG-Avtec utilizes the Empower PLM solution to centralize and manage all product information including BOMs, engineering changes, and documents. Adopting Empower PLM helped the company meet its primary objective of eliminating the tedious task of managing BOM information within their ERP system. With features such as complete BOM revision control, audit trails, BOM comparisons and full BOM hierarchy views, Empower PLM makes CVG-Avtec's BOM management process much easier and more efficient, and delivers the structured processes, history tracking, and accountability they were looking for to meet their product development goals.

"By keeping all revisions in Empower PLM, I no longer need to worry about changing effectivity dates on individual BOM parts in our ERP system in order to maintain current and prior revisions," said Quang Le, Configuration Management for CVG-Avtec. "Having the ability to easily bring up past product revisions, retrieve all information and associated documentation, such as datasheets and vendor quotes, and see all redlines has helped to reduce the time spent searching for information by at least 95% which allows me to do my job much more efficiently and effectively."

"Due to the complexity of their products, it is critical for customers like CVG-Avtec to have the right system in place to accurately track and manage the multitude of product revisions associated with their product development environment," stated Chuck Cimalore, CTO for Omnify Software. "Empower PLM helps customers to address the challenges of managing product revisions by centralizing all product information, providing a controlled environment for managing engineering changes with workflows and audit trails, and automating all BOM management processes."
