ADEACA PBA + Bluestar PLM enables CAD users to seamlessly share design data and documents with downstream ERP users who depend on it for purchasing, manufacturing and related activities. In return, CAD users are granted access to indispensable transactional data from Dynamics such as prices, on-hand quantities and lead times, so that price awareness and other logistical considerations are easily incorporated into product designs.
This bidirectional exchange of information rids the organization of redundant data entry and fragmented information, raises data integrity and integrates the design department with the rest of the organization for improved collaboration and increased productivity.
Engineering Change ManagementADEACA PBA + Bluestar PLM enables users to promote engineering changes through the entire change cycle all the way from request through the actual implementation of the change in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations production system. Thanks to its integration with both ERP and CAD environments, it provides complete transparency in the cost and logistic feasibility of engineering changes while securing that engineering documentation is always up-to-date.
