Smit - The Power Of Manufacturing

21 The software's primary purpose is to give us a structural way of working that properly reflects our requirements. An engineer, for instance, who is working on a transformer model, decides when the production department will get to see the model. Only when the status of the model does not change anymore, it becomes accessible to others. In addition to the fact that the PLM system generates information for departments within the organisation itself, this information may also be used when communicating with clients and suppliers. This authorisation model prevents errors and inaccuracies. We also use the software as a type of archive. If, after five years, one of our -clients has a problem with a transformer, we can retrieve all the relevant settings and data. The software program is ruthless: it checks what everyone is up to and gives access to everything that's happening in the company. So it basically confronts you with your own actions and quality standards. This increases insight into our own product and leads us to improve and innovate more readily and easily.” ADVERTORIAL “A USER OF VAN SIEMENS PLM SOFTWARE LOSES RELATIVELY LITTLE TIME ON PROCESS MANAGEMENT.“
