released version 14.50 of its integrated data management product, CoCreate OneSpace Model Manager 2006
. CoCreate's new approach to PLM focuses on lightweight support for a company's development processes without the overhead of heavy, or monolithic systems. Termed by the company, the “essential companion to 3D product development,” Model Manager transparently manages revision and state control, provides status alerts and notifications, and orchestrates teamwork across assemblies. Additionally, Model Manager allows companies to quickly take an engineering BOM and prepare it for manufacturing. Companies can leverage the engineering BOM as the
starting point for developing the manufacturing BOM and downstream production sequences. With this release. Model Manager has been enhanced to provide a richer engineering BOM that supports more downstream manufacturing concepts. Examples of new capabilities include inseparable assemblies (multiple parts united into one during a manufacturing process) and phantom assemblies (hiding parts for developing staged assembly sequences and kit preparation). BOM versioning and scheduling also manages coinciding pre-production processes, such as prototyping.
