Bridging the Gap: Integrating ERP with PLM

Product design and engineering data in Fusion Lifecycle, once released, feeds into NetSuite ERP to assemble bills of materials (BOMs), source components, assess capacity and more, with role-based authorization across both PLM and ERP systems. Bi-directional integration benefits both systems by eliminating process bottlenecks and errors due to manual data entry.


Engineering Product Management

The Engineering Product Management powered by Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle provides a central view into all of the processes related to your product.The Engineering Product Management App creates a hub of information related to a product's development, manufacturing, and service information. Access the BOM, or keep track of overall progress with the scheduling function, and quickly access direct and linked files in the attachments tab.

New Product Introduction (NPI)

The New Product Introduction App powered by Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle provides an industry standard stage gate process keeping your new product's introduction to the market on schedule and on budget. Create and share formal business plans that managers can follow to exceed all measures of success. NPI Details encompass all phases of the program for ready reference by every stakeholder. Key Milestones commit all project participants to a single, high-level timeline set by executives.

Engineering Change Management

The Engineering Change Management App powered by Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle provides a repeatable request, review, analysis, and change implementation process that is flexible for a number of typical engineering related changes. Respond to change requests with a clear explanation of how the decision affects the product. Quickly discover and assess the scope of changes by reviewing a tabulated list of affected items. Learn the complete change history by reviewing the change owner, summary and log.

Quality Management

Quality Management Powered by Autodesk™ Fusion Lifecycle delivers the tools manufacturers need to collect and analyze quality data, define inspection standards, track and communicate non-conformances, initiate corrective action, and respond to problems as soon as or even before they occur.

Quality Inspection Plan Capture the required inspection procedure for your products with the Quality Inspection Plan workspace. Users can quickly reference this instruction set while performing inspection to ensure that they are performed to standard.

Inspection Management Define product performance tests and criteria and clearly report all examination findings. Easily tabulate inspection data traceable by item, type, supplier, or build designation. Detect trends early by analyzing the results of all prior inspection activities. Find the root cause of failed items faster by automatically spawning a non-conformance.

Nonconformance Management Assess and classify failed items to quickly determine the type of corrective action necessary. Easily trace non-conforming items from problem discovery (inspection) to originator (supplier). Accurately estimate the cost of poor quality using item cost, quantity, and disposition accounting. React quickly by automatically opening corrective actions against legitimate non-conformances.

Corrective Actions / Preventative Actions (CAPA) Formalize efficient quality improvement to reduce problem reoccurrences. Easily comprehend the problem, root cause and resolution on a single screen. Track investigations of probable cause and findings in a central searchable location.
