Companies worldwide are driven to connect their supply chain into the product development, manufacturing and maintenance process to increase competitiveness, reduce time to market, manage product changes, organize product definitions and control the cost of the manufacturing process. However, in this process companies encounter difficulties when dealing with a global and complex supply chain and a lack of procedures and control of digital design data.
Eric Bouwer, Cyco Software CEO, enthuses, "Our AutoManager Publishing Module enables companies to deal with the challenges of a complex, global supply chain in their product development and asset maintenance operations." He continues, "With the AutoManager Publishing Module, manufacturing customers now can reap the benefits of a managed worldwide collaboration solution that will truly elevate their design efficiency." He concludes, "This will steer companies toward greater profitability due to enhanced collaboration across the enterprise and supply chain with less errors, automated workflow and more control."
Cyco's AutoManager Publishing Tool also connects AutoManager Meridian to Autodesk Streamline to deliver a managed worldwide collaboration solution combining controlled changes of design data in local engineering teams with early involvement of the extended design team to make better products faster. The publishing module delivers:
* Scheduled automatic publishing of released data between the engineering vault in AutoManager Meridian and Autodesk Streamline. * Rendition of Documents to ZGL/DWF/PDF using leading Autodesk and Adobe technologies. * Automatic rendition of modified documents and related assembly documents when needed (re-rendering an assembly when parts change) * The certainty that: - Only approved and released designs are shared using Streamline - Released documents are automatically uploaded to Streamline - A 100% accurate rendition of the assembly is uploaded to Streamline - All relevant project documents, whether they are designs or office documents can automatically be published at Autodesk Streamline.
