Can ERP Speak PLM? Part Two: Examples and Recommendations


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions have to work with many other systems, not just ERP, so integration is not a new issue for PLM vendors. Most PLM vendors recognize the need for integration and have addressed the need in their toolkits. The additional work comes from integrating the concepts and semantics of one system to the next, if this business level integration has not already been provided between the two systems. This can be a big challenge for best of breed vendors, who may need to rely on systems integrators for much of this conceptual and semantic integration.

Another example that has caused problems in past ERP integration projects is the definition of effectivity dates. If a component has an effectivity ending date of December 15, is the component active on that day? Is it inclusive, going out of effectivity at 11:59:59 PM (23:59:59) in the evening, or exclusive, going out of effectivity at 12:00:00 AM Read More

MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations

INFIMACS Becoming Ever More RELEVANT For Project-Based Industries. Part 2: Market Impact and User Recommendations


The current market trend industry-wide is towards vendors that can provide comprehensive solutions for medium-sized companies. Relevant seems to have a fair shot at delivering that to project-based discrete manufacturers such as aerospace contractors, contract manufacturers of electronic components, window, door & frame manufacturers, and MRO organizations with revenues up to $300 million.

lot effectivity  Relevant beefed up its lot and serial tracking capabilities. Key to this enhancement is the above-mentioned tail effectivity, which permits users to tie every part on a plane back to that one entity.

While many of the these functionalities sound ordinary and appear to be offered by many vendors as 'supported' when responding to RFIs, subsequent product demonstration often Read More
