As many engineering and product development teams well know, there is a lack of integration between manufacturing process planning, EBOM, MBOM, and work instructions. This results in information silos that create gaps in traceability and makes it difficult to keep data synchronized – directly impacting product cost, quality and time to market. As product complexity increase this problem dramatically increases as well.

Aras recently released Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) – a solution to help solve these problems. Since the new application is built on Aras’ product lifecycle management (PLM) platform it is just as flexible as Aras’ other applications. Aras created MPP to manage the complex business processes extending from product development to manufacturing.

New capabilities bring together the Manufacturing Process Plan, Work Instructions and MBOM making them interdependent and automatically synchronized as changes occur. This innovation enables direct EBOM to MBOM translation, which bridges the gaps enterprises have and creates the process foundation necessary for Industry 4.0 initiatives.

With Aras MPP, global product teams can define manufacturing processes at the same time and at multiple plants, therefore bridging the gap between engineering and manufacturing. Companies can eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts, as well as improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instructions.

Benefits of Aras Manufacturing Process Planning include:

  • Bridge the gap between engineering and manufacturing.
  • Eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts.
  • Improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instruction.
  • Implement a digital thread with as-designed to as-planned traceability.
