To keep pace with quickly changing requirements, and to improve production quality while keeping costs down, you must digitalize your product manufacturing bill of materials (MBOM) and the bill of process (BOP) properly – capturing “what to make” and “how to make it”.

Integrated Manufacturing

Teamcenter Manufacturing with Easy Plan provides you with a powerful solution to streamline collaboration between engineering, manufacturing, and production. It enables you to efficiently manage your manufacturing BOM, standardize and re-use assembly processes across multiple plants, author and deliver electronic work instructions for the shop floor, perform detailed time analysis, balance production lines, and much more.

We now have a manufacturing structure managed by a single system and fully integrated with product engineering, as a result 40% reduction in engineering time was achieved for the creation of work instruction sheets.
