PRO.CEED: the PLM Solution

PRO.CEED brings IT-enabled project and process management to the PLM process level

Do your PLM processes involve multiple people and departments?

Are there frequently recurring processes for your tasks?

Do you need to comply with rules and regulations?

If so, then you should start managing your PLM processes based on IT enabled process flows.

IT enabled process flows create electronic task files as an effective way to automate and secure your document control processes. This will, in turn, provide structure to your project and process management and connect it to your product data and document control. For example, change or project documents can be reliably retrieved from project and process files since these are managed through built in dashboards.

Working With PRO.CEED

Automate your product related processes with PRO.CEED best practice application packages

The PRO.CEED application package “Change management” provides a “best practice” or “reference process” for change management.

The process is divided in five process phases, as shown below. This structure is based on the Q-gate method, which, for the finalization of a process phase, recommends the finalization of all previous phases. This is monitored and ensured by PRO.CEED.

Contracts are growing in complexity and the need to have a company-wide, digital contract management system is becoming a must in every manufacturing and engineering company. Being able to quickly access critical information, such as termination and contract extension clauses or compliance with relevant legal requirements is essential.

In addition, insuring that internal departments and external partners are always using the most recent version of a contract and that there is a documented approval process to any changes to contracts are critical to the overall success of a project.

The PRO.CEED application package “Contract Management” provides a “best practice” or “reference process” for contract management.

PRO.CEED Contract Management is a pre-defined and pre-configured application package which can be used quickly and productively without a lot of consulting and administration effort.

Manufacturing and Engineering companies need to be able to properly organize the way they control, monitor, and document their projects. Growing levels of complexity, tight deadlines, and the obligation to comply with legislation and standards are increasingly taking the spotlight. Staying on top of all of this and making engineering projects a success are daunting challenges.

The PRO.CEED PLM solution supports you by automating your document control. A common basis for the documents and data created in the different departments ensures full transparency and accelerates your workflows.
