Get on-demand visibility into component and production data, forecasting and demand planning. Sharing information across PLM and ERP systems enables manufacturers to optimize costing and pricing, by pulling cost data from ERP to use in the ECO material disposition process. Seamless integration between cloud-based Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle and your ERP helps maximize profitability by giving designers, engineers, and other stakeholders a scalable platform to ensure that changes and their associated costs are properly documented and managed in both PLM and downstream manufacturing.
Embedded component and assembly cost information
Component parts and assemblies can contain embedded cost information, alongside other data on their supplier. This can be captured in Fusion Lifecycle and synced with your ERP system. Giving all stakeholders a clear understanding of the cost of supplied items allowing the Procurement team to have a complete understanding of what is needed. Compare options, make better informed decisions on the most cost effective components to use in your products as well as aid material disposition decisions during engineering changes.
Bill of Materials cost roll-up
Cost information within component parts and sub-assemblies can be automatically rolled-up within a BOM to provide and overall total for a product. Reduce the time otherwise spent looking for cost data and manual calculations. The visibility of sub-total costs for each sub-assembly within Fusion Lifecycle allows more in-depth analysis of a product. Real-time roll-up capabilities enable stakeholders to immediately access the impact of any changes on the total cost and better analyze alternative components.
Cost management reporting
Real-time graphical reports can be easily created based upon any metrics in Fusion Lifecycle which includes cost and revenue-related data. Information, such as actual costs versus revenue, can be made available in bar or pie chart formats to all stakeholders. Giving them easy to understand overview of the data created within the PLM environment. Real-time data reduces the risk of potential errors often found with manually compiled reports.
Drive development of new products and services to become more competitive, profitable, and valuable to customers—with significantly less cost and risk.
