Today, agility to quickly deliver product variants to the market is critical for companies seeking to meet rapidly changing consumer demand for personalized products. Configuration Management helps manufacturers with highly configurable products manage global product designs and bill of materials containing all variants. Product designers and engineers create product configurations for analysis or to validate supported product options. Development organizations must also address the challenge of increased product and process complexity. Change Management facilitates a unified enterprise-wide change process across all impacted organizations to confirm approval and validation of changes before implementation. A common change process increases productivity, improves collaboration and ensures proper notifications to reduce errors.
Configuration and Change Management helps:
- Meet target product delivery dates while maintaining product consistency and performance
- Ensure ever-evolving customer requirements are built into product development scenarios and communicated effectively throughout the organization
