WHAT IS YOUR PLM CHALLENGE? WEBINAR SERIES Part 1 – Manage configurable products and maintain product integrity DES-CASE Corporation – Keith Mawdsley – Brad Bocook Mercury PLM Solutions – Nat Workman Geometric Solutions – Tom Gaunt RAVE Computer – Amy Kowalski

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Using Teamcenter

4 A Little About Us… • Contamination is responsible for as much as 80% of the wear that leads to mechanical failure • Cost of removal = 10x cost of prevention The Problem We Solve: Industrial Contamination How We Solve It: From The Inside-Out & The Outside-In • Des-Case desiccant breathers keep dirt and moisture out of equipment • Our filtration systems take the dirt and moisture out of oil that gets into equipment in a variety of ways • Our services team helps customers figure out what’s best practice for them, and how to implement it

Des-Case needed: • A solution for managing the growing number of configurable products • A way to maintain product integrity • A single source of product information Other factors: • Company growth of 20%+ per year requiring new processes and systems • Expanded the custom and configurable product lines • A strong focus on operational efficiency Des-Case Confidential 5 The Challenge Teamcenter has helped us to achieve our goals and meet our needs Des-Case Historical Growth 5

The Absence of Teamcenter / Infrequent Engineering Involvement • Lack of Ownership • Inaccurate BOM’s • Custom System Inconsistencies • Difficulty Tracking Revisions

The Inclusion of Teamcenter / Consistent Engineering Involvement • Accountability / Ownership • Efficient BOM Management • Consistency • Accurate Tracking • Single Source of Information

Solutions/Technical Details

9 Super EBOMs • Example: Flowguard Filter Cart o 2,448,230,400 possible product combinations • Each combination configured according to a specified option set • Excel BOM -> Super EBOM -> Variant Item (specific combination) • Reduction in BOM issues – near 0% on configurable products

10 Super EBOMs • Define available options for each product line • Set logic statements on components according to options • Engineer selects options -> EBOM is automatically configured according to logic statements

11 Workflows • Order and Product Specification Release Workflow • Information stored and controlled: o Order documents o Order specifications for engineering use  Custom design requirements  Configuration for standard products Purchase Order

12 Workflows • Concept/Pre-Production/Production/Obsolete Workflow • Items reviewed before release • Can have multiple revisions with different labels o Ex: Three concepts, one pre-production, two production • Helps maintain a design/product history

13 SolidWorks Integration • CAD drawing/assembly revision control • Integration with EBOM o CAD assembly becomes EBOM o CAD properties become Teamcenter attributes • Marketing drawings • JT/DXF/PDF translation

14 SolidWorks Integration- Production • Notified whenever a new engineering drawing is released • JT assemblies during system build – select parts in preview • View engineering drawings in assembly • Tablet and fixed workstations

15 JD Edwards/ERP Integration • Export latest production released BOM revision o Automatic nightly process • Custom middleware converts XML export to ERP compatible BOM • Used for costing, inventory, routing, etc

16 Possible Future Developments • New workflow for ECR process. o Signoffs at manager level o Possibly integrate with TC Change Management module • New workflow for Product Development process. • Teamcenter 10.1 o With so many product combinations it is difficult to manage product changes effectively o With 10.1, mass update feature allows for more flexibility in constant improvement

Contents Property of Mercury Marine 21 PLM Implementation Challenges • Tight Project Timeframe • Product Variability • Concurrent ERP Deployment – Original plan was for ERP deployment to come after PLM project – ERP and PLM projects had similar cadence; sharing similar Des Case resources, milestone events, etc. • Manage the Relationship Between EBOM / MBOM • Integrate Teamcenter MBOM w/ERP – Structure the MBOM in Teamcenter and passing to ERP – Became a requirement late in the project to accommodate ERP Operation Numbers for routed MBOMs

Contents Property of Mercury Marine 22 PLM Implementation Scope • CAD Integration with SolidWorks including attribute mapping between CAD and Teamcenter systems • Initial data migration process definition • Design item type/attribute definition • Release and notification workflows • Downstream use of engineering data – Teamcenter Mobility – Teamcenter Visualization • Integration with JDE – Client chose JDE to replace legacy ERP solution Teamcenter Modules • Teamcenter 8.3 • SolidWorks Integration Manager (SWIM) • Teamcenter Mobility • Visualization • Multi-Structure Manager • Options and Variants • Workflow

Contents Property of Mercury Marine EBOM / MBOM Relationship • Multi-Structure Manager • Link EBOM to MBOM for a persistent relationship • Accountability Check • JD Edwards Integration – Export BOM data from Teamcenter – XML parsed to be consumed by JDE middleware developed by Des Case IT 23 Teamcenter XML Extract Middleware JDE

Contents Property of Mercury Marine 24 Solution Configuration Overview Item Type Description DCDesign Design Items that transfer to ERP along with attributes either as a part or BOM or both when an item reaches Production status. • Datasets may be 3D model, Engineering or Marketing drawings DCDocument Any non-CAD document that needs to be stored with the product design record for the Design or Tooling items. • Document types include: Design information, Design checklist, Label or decal, Quote information, FMEA, Purchase specification, Test data, Design review, Material specification DCSupplier Track and manage information associated with components or products designed-by and purchased from suppliers. • Datasets may be none, or MS Office documents containing tooling photos, or CAD data, or a combination.
