Product Lifecycle Management

Benefits:
Streamline product lifecycle

Meat Complex, Industry specific requirements with integrated PDM and PLM, from the early stages of design and engineering for new products, through maintenance and repair of the installed base in its latest version. A fully integrated ECR and ECO process simplifies product changes and version management.

Meet customer demand for one-time and complete delivery

Optimize the quote-to Cash process by quickly and accurately creating estimates. Predict and schedule capacity and requirement for a flexible and lean construction phase. Monitor cost and progress using dashboard and flexible analysis to ensure on-time and complete deliveries.

Improve operational performance

A project-based Approach to manufacturing deliveries a complete overview of work-to-execute phases, along with the ability to manage concurrent engineering and procurement for items with a long lead time. Reduce inventory levels and associated cast with access to real-time information for work in progress and planned service calls.

Build an enterprise-wide collaboration network

Conduct design and engineering information and processes with bi-directional interrogation to existing CAD/CAM cm and PDM systems. Optimize collaboration for suppliers, sub-contractors, and customers through electronic information exchange, including EDI orders and contracts, ECR, and service request.

Smoothly manage the after sales process

VLC efficiency – and control costs – with accurate planning of spare parts and a complete view of all calls. Structures of commercial manufactures of commercial & OEM Machinery are among the highest number of companies with a mixed - Manufacturing models, and they work some of the most diverse business models in the value chain the vertical range can span OEM, specialized machinery, and contractor-based manufacturing (for example, air-conditioning manufactures or valve products).

When competition is stiff and margins are under pressure, IT Solutions must deliver much more than functional capabilities. Today's manufacturers also need agility that lets them respond quickly to new developments and maintain competitive edge, without being limited by system constraints.

VLC Commercial & OEM Machinery and Parts for manufacturer proven capability for meeting specific industry needs, including VLC customer demand for fast response and service, streamlined processes, and internal procedures that create a truly lean environment.
