Job Order Management

RuleDesigner has a configurable workflow engine that lies on a wide and structured platform. It allows to codify the organization of work by introducing automation along the processes. It supports both inter and intra-company collaboration through real-time sharing of documents, information or activities. Secure access to information based on account permissions (role, company, etc.)

Change Management

RuleDesigner supports Change Management processes from the moment a change request (ECR) is opened until the change order is executed (ECO). The ECR purposes can concern the elimination of non-compliance issues, the reduction of direct costs, the improvement of performance and reliability, the implementation of a functional solution or other cases.

Management of product concept workflows

The product concept has the purpose to study and break down the product idea in the design development phase. Such an early phase of product development involves different actors and company functions such as: management, marketing, engineering, cost evaluation and sales. Sometimes, it also requires the contribution of key providers with whom there is a strong collaboration. So, RuleDesigners supports all the preparation and approval step stages of product plan, sketches and final design.

Advanced product quality planning in new product development processes

Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) – regulated by the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) - is a structured process aimed at supporting the development of a new product /process that will satisfy the customer. It presupposes a multi-disciplinary approach to quality planning and it follows up all the industrialization steps for the development of a new product, starting from the initial concept to the production.

New product evaluation

Thanks to dynamic and rule-based configuration processes, RuleDesigner allows to drive the customer service staff in collecting all the information needed for evaluating a new product request. Besides this, it is even possible to map and automate the workflow requests for a new product which is starting from the customer service and involves technical areas (industrial engineering, technical department, R&D), sales, quality and production dept.

Workflow automation

Generally, PLM workflow processes are characterized by many stages where information and documents intersect with the production cycle. In such a context, the ability to automate workflows can lead to new levels of efficiency at each stage.

So, by using RuleDesigner it is possible to:

  • Improve the collaboration between R&D team, design, sales, quality and production through a global and secure access to documents and product information.
  • Accelerate business processes by digitizing and automating manual tasks or performing procedures for updating information stored in different business applications.
  • Create efficiency in engineering processes and documents through automation, integration and collaboration.
  • Meet control objectives while ensuring that processes are completed in a coherent and punctual way. Minimize errors and improve quality through automated check –lists.

Broadly speaking, workflow automation supports decision-making processes.
