RDM: Product Development
RDM | Product Development & Collaboration | Product Development Product Development covers the entire life-cycle of product related Master Data such as product structures, routings and documents from invention to phase-out providing functions to manage and deliver the wide range of product information and ensure immediate access to up-to-date data. The solution facilitates effective collaboration both within and beyond the organization and streamlines processes from the early development phase through to production.
|Product Development||Product Development covers the process of defining a product, gathering requirements, developing the product, sourcing for suppliers involved and managing the ramp-up. As the early phases of product development determine the costs for the product to a great extent effective collaboration between project managers, developers, designers, and engineers is a must. In combination with the R&D Administration the strength of the PD process is based on the concept that all ideas, documents, structure information, early process information and early layout information are collected and managed centrally. This starts with the initial idea and goes right the way through to start of production, and also after SOP, if necessary. The massive flood of information processed every day requires powerful tools for data management and distribution.|
|Development Collaboration||The business process “development collaboration” allows you to optimize a cross-enterprise product development with internal and external teams including the sourcing of complex product components. This is reached among other things by a consistent central storage of all relevant data during the entire collaboration process and a secure integration of external partners and suppliers.|
