With a focus on consistently producing quality products, on time, TDP was looking for better methods to process Engineering Change Orders (ECOs), track releases of documents related to products, control document revisions, as well as a means to improve collaboration with their customers. TDP implemented the Omnify Empower PLM system to address their product development issues and now has over 60 employees using the Omnify Empower PLM system including: Sales, Service, Engineering, Purchasing and Production.
The company is leveraging the core features of Empower PLM to support controlled processes such as; item and Bill of Material (BOM) creation, engineering changes, file management, revision control, approval history, task management, and document control. The company has also expanded their use of Empower PLM with the Quality Management and Project Management features. Quality Management has helped TDP gain visibility into non-conformance results from audits, track customer feedback, address internal Quality issues and perform potential Problem Analysis while Project Management ensures a smooth transition from product release to production.
"Overall, TDP has been amazed by the flexibility Omnify Empower has provided in managing not only the change order process but also the BOM review process, part number creation process, Corrective and Preventive Actions, and project management," stated Caroline Lace, director of business systems for TDP, Inc. "We continue to find new ways to use the system to aid in increasing efficiencies throughout the company, including a 96% reduction in incorrect material orders and scrap."
"TDP exemplifies companies who understand the key benefits and core functionality of PLM," stated Chuck Cimalore, chief technology officer for Omnify Software. "However, once they implement a complete solution such as Empower PLM that delivers functionality beyond the scope of the 'traditional PLM' system, they immediately find that they can address issues and encompass business processes beyond their initial considerations and requirements."
