You can manage your business initiatives throughout the lifecycle; synchronizing efforts, increasing productivity and achieving greater innovation. As a PLM platform, T-FLEX DOCs allows you to consolidate your product knowledge and processes, and implement domain and industry solutions that reduce your total cost of ownership and time-to-value.
T-FLEX DOCs has a number of specialized tools for managing data structures. Unique tools allow you to organize various ways of binding objects of different types, as well as to describe the logic of interaction of such objects. This mechanism underlies the single knowledge base that can handle any type of data and store objects of any specific area from the product structure and nomenclature to the contact lists of organizations, customers and suppliers.
Project Management, Cost and Resource Planning
T-FLEX DOCs brings project management and the product lifecycle together to enable your company to fully leverage its resources and prioritize your products so they can be aligned to drive your strategic business objectives forward.
Before making commitments and beginning the work, you can use T-FLEX DOCs to create what-if scenarios that consider schedule changes and supplemental resources for balancing capacity against the product roadmap. This allows you to validate the roadmap against actual organizational capacity.
T-FLEX DOCs provides comprehensive financial planning from budgeting to total cost of development, which supports cost and revenue-related budgeting and forecasting across product lines, products, projects and strategies while producing a single source of organizational financials.
T-FLEX DOCs allows you to quickly select a set of resources that will be involved in every task of the project. All of the resources may be planned and described in terms of costs schedule, i.e. system allows you to specify when and under what scheme money will be spent on a particular resource. The system allows you to quickly see the disbursement schedule for the entire project, quickly view cost graphs of individual resources and compare them to each other to assess the overall picture.
Mail and Tasks, Workflow Management
T-FLEX DOCs has all necessary functions of organizational and administrative management and allows you to combine various departments into a single business unit: from general office to design-engineering services. The system allows you to organize multilevel control of executive discipline, including: traditionally accepted simple and hierarchical resolution, automated notifications of performers and leaders at all phases of work, control of timing and controllers assignment. Workflow Management module is an important and integral part of many solutions built on T-FLEX DOCs platform. It is aimed at automation of user interaction during the execution of a wide variety of works. T-FLEX DOCs has special tools to issuing assignments and provide clear and fast operational control. The program includes, among other things, specialized calendar to not only see the target dates for all works and assignments, but also quickly create reminder alerts for yourself and record your activities.
Integration with ERP Systems
T-FLEX DOCs provides information to downstream applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Operational data can be transferred to various ERP systems both through standardized XML exchange format files and through the creation of specialized software modules. This functionality helps you to optimally implement T-FLEX DOCs into your ERP system landscape and ensure data consistency.
Managing Company Product Range, Corporate Data and Classifiers
T-FLEX DOCs helps to organize data spread across multiple databases and locations providing optimal solutions for data harmonization. Various types of datasets may be used to involve all type of objects and product structures into a uniform knowledge base of company's products and processes.
Special tools provide the ability to create arbitrary folder structures with various rules and selection options. Furthermore, it is possible to create an arbitrary content and define appropriate data structures and logic of internal relationships. Various predefined classifiers are already included in the installation.
Product Structure Management, Bill of Materials, Configurations and Versions
T-FLEX DOCs single source of structured product and process information enables you to derive the right bill of materials (BOM) information relevant to your needs. Coupled with powerful capabilities to manage product complexity and variability, you can more easily manage product offerings, platforms and options.
T-FLEX DOCs enables you to create a generic product structure that you can use to manage all of the configurations that apply to a product platform - including definitions for the product families, variants and options that facilitate an affordable approach to mass customization.
T-FLEX DOCs bill of materials (BOM) management capabilities help you manage increasingly complex products by providing total visibility into your product definitions and configurations and the way this information evolves throughout the product lifecycle. T-FLEX DOCs enables all lifecycle participants to leverage BOM information relevant to their functional needs. Especially valuable when used in conjunction with T-FLEX CAD configuration and product structure capabilities, BOM management lets you manage product platforms, variants and derivatives essential for improving your product customization and re-use.
There are also important features for revision management, alternate and substitute part management, multiple product structure views, controlling versions to track changes in objects and product structure and rollback them if necessary.
Integration with Major MCAD Systems
T-FLEX DOCs has modules for integration virtually with all most popular design systems, including: T-FLEX CAD, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD, PTC Creo and Siemens NX.
Such integration provides a single source of product and process information to support your complete design-through manufacturing process and enables your data to be incorporated into a multi-CAD environment.
