SSA Global has released SSA PLM 8.0, a product lifecycle management solution designed to help customers achieve lower total cost of ownership through integration with other enterprise systems. The solution also helps attain regulatory compliance and accelerate the time to market for new products.
The system offers tight integration with SSA ERP in addition to seamless integration with various computer-aided design (CAD) solutions. This enables manufacturers to manage design variants and implement mass customisation at a lower cost.
SSA PLM enables manufacturers to more efficiently implement compliance measures. Among the requirements specifically addressed by SSA PLM are the EC directives for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). SSA PLM also addresses U.S. Federal Drug Administration 21 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) for ensuring the authenticity, integrity and security of electronic records.
Detailed product information is easily accessible throughout the enterprise so employees from purchasing to production can use it for improved decision-making. Automated, paperless transactions reduce internal approval process time.
