PROJECT

Management of Change request (ECRM), Special Requests (VESR) and Projects.

The management of ECRM and VERS requests coming from different corporate function is performed with ticketing tools. Arneg introduced a Project Workflow management method for ECRM, VESR or New Projects. Each workflow is made up by Phases, each one characterized by several activities with start and end date, progress status and resources appointed.

By elaborating such information, it is possible to obtain statistics on the entire project: estimation of lead time for each project and relative phases, people involved, the average time spent and summarizing diagrams. The projects can be also differentiated according to typology, workflow and template.

By using tools like Diaries and Planners it has been possible to manage and to organize the workload of users and offices with the possibility to monitor the progress status of different tasks.

The documents of each project can be managed thanks to approval workflow, Full text search, Versioning, Conversion, automatic numbering.

Moreover, dynamic cards and sheets, checklist management, risks, events, linked projects, project planner, delivery of notification to  users involved, reports.

New rules have been introduced in order to automate certain actions (for example, sending emails, changing competences, assigning tasks, sending notifications to managers, etc. ) on the occurrence of  specific events ( such as, projects close to due date, opening or closing of phases, percentage of completion, status change, checkList, etc.).

Unified part-numbering plan and multi-site management

With RuleDesigner, a unified and coherent part numbering plan was implemented benefiting from the multiple configuration options available within the part-numbers card.   Also, technical documents have been classified to improve the effectiveness of searches and prevent the design of duplicated parts. Finally, RuleDesigner allowed to automate the export of part-numbers created by the technical staff to the ERP system and handle a multi-site management of technical data with replication of documents in each site.
