HOW CAN YOU SECURE YOUR PROGRAM EXECUTION WHILE INCREASING REVENUE?
To deliver program on time, on target while increasing revenue, OEM and large suppliers must improve pro–gram management performance and handle increasing complexity of systems.
The Program Excellence Industry Solution Experience provides a collaborative business platform to enable maximized interdisciplinary collaboration ranging from system engineering to design, manufacturing and maintenance. It enables to optimize product structure organization to maximize modularity and reuse. From key performance indicators, all development activities can be orchestrated and monitored in a consistent and secure way. Knowledge and know-how are captured, made accessible to anyone, and transformed into em–bedded check rules and automated processes.
Execute program on-time, on-budget, on-specifications
Today, more and more companies are facing cost overrun and planning delays, which directly affect their sustainability and growth. Program Excellence provides a single collaborative business platform enabling people from all disciplines and their ecosystem to coordinate, share and manage a common schedule and dataset. It also offers the ability to set a planning with a proper and optimized use of resources. Activities are clearly distributed and tracked. Then, program key indicators can be monitored precisely and continuously to detect deviations as early as possible so that corrective decisions can be taken at a minimum cost.
The integration of project management capabilities enables deliverables status to update automatically project data and get real-time progress status, saving time to consolidate a project report.
Program Excellence helps also to efficiently manage export control regulations and Intellectual Protection rules. It includes capabilities to easily define security classes and associated rules, manage exception requests and extract reports. That represents a great source of savings considering the penalties companies are exposed to if these rules are not properly enforced.
All these benefits are delivered while ensuring conformity to configuration management requirements and ensuring a flexible and traceable end to end change process.
Design to cost
Impact of design decisions on the recurring and non-recurring cost should be known as early as possible. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, Program Excellence enables anyone to input cost data on any engineering and manufacturing level, with the right level of security. Leaders can roll-up the cost values, assess them and analyze their trends in order to take informed decisions.
Develop product line engineering
More and more companies are identifying the strategy to opt for product line engineering as a way to significantly improve profitability. This consists of developing engineering assets that can be reused across a family of products or different programs. Through this re-use strategy, companies can both reduce cost while offering a wider range of variants to the market.
Program Excellence can inherently support such an approach thanks to the establishment of a common referential of configured modules. It also provides the ability to combine them consistently in the system, design, manufacturing and maintenance definitions.
Capitalize, standardize, reuse, and automate process and product know-how
Establishing the right standards and ensuring they are applied all along the development process is a key success factor. Program Excellence provides a single entry point to access all the information. Standard component managers are able to determine source of savings by identifying similar part duplication, and lead engineers to the favored components.
All engineering rules, from system to design, including manufacturing and maintenance, can also be turned into embedded check rules to the platform so that all development assets can be validated and verified continuously.
Repetitive processes are easily transformed into smart templates or even personalized applications, which will deliver higher productivity gains.
