Data management for manufacturers - more than a document library

Data management for manufacturers - more than a document libraryEffective data management is critical for successful product development and manufacturing. With an effective data management system in place, designers can create innovative, high-quality products quickly and efficiently, and these products can be manufactured with minimal errors and rework. But companies floundering amid large volumes of historical data and even lost or irretrievable designs can get caught in a quagmire that slows them down or, at worst, pulls them under. That may sound extreme but companies that don’t have a way to effectively manage their design data face lengthy design cycles, loss of profit, and general paralysis.

For design reviews, engineers would meet online with customers at remote locations using the online meeting service GoToMeeting. This let them at least share screens. “Getting our customers to connect to the FTP site is difficult because they might not have access, or their companies don’t let them download files through their firewall. In this case, they’d had to contact their IT people and jump through hoops and that made it hard for them,” Miller says.

A better way to manage engineering data and documents´╗┐Since the computer revolution swept into engineering firms, they have been generating mountains of information that should be organized for easy access by their design teams that could be anywhere. Organization, however, has been a moving and often missed target. For instance, when need for particular data arises, questions often start with, “Where can I find…?” Frequent answers start with, “Have you looked in…?” Such searches are not the best use of time for teams on tight schedules.
