Manufacturing Process Planning provides customers a single, scalable and secure source of manufacturing data that supports lifecycle processes from engineering through production. With a fully managed, single source of knowledge for products, processes, resources and plants, customers can increase manufacturing’s influence on product innovation to drastically improve profitability, time-to-market and quality.
Leading manufacturers are looking for technologies and methodologies that allow them to efficiently author, simulate and manage manufacturing information throughout their organization and with external suppliers. Manufacturers want software tools that can align manufacturing plans quickly and intelligently based on changing product configurations. Manufacturing process planner (MPP) allows design and manufacturing engineers to concurrently develop product and manufacturing process definitions. This ensures that manufacturing constraints are reconciled during product design and vice versa. Using Teamcenter powerful change management capabilities, manufacturers can quickly react to changes originating at any point of the design/build lifecycle.
