This class aims at providing insights on how users can readily use Fusion Lifecycle software to manage their CAD and other relevant data on the cloud with the assistance of a central storage repository that not only manages file properties, but also caters to assembly references and various renderings available for that data, which the user can upload using our very own in-house solution: the connected desktop. The class will also focus on the other new cloud product data management (PDM) features that Fusion Lifecycle software has to offer, and how our users can utilize these capabilities to achieve their goals. In addition to that, the class aims at focusing on an integral solution that we have always striven toward—how Fusion Lifecycle software and A360 cloud-based services collaborate, in unison, to obtain cohesiveness and fluidity for a seamless user experience. This session features PLM 360 (now Fusion Lifecycle), A360, and Fusion Lifecycle.
Your company uses Fusion Lifecycle software to collect and manage data. But capitalizing on your data to make informed decisions quickly is vital for business success. Learn best practices for using reports to make better decisions. This session will help you to build reports using Fusion Lifecycle software's built-in report functionality, and you’ll learn to extract data for real-time decision making on both workstations and your mobile devices. We will cover out-of-the-box reporting, custom functionality, and best practices for creating the best experience for your stakeholders across your company. This session features PLM 360 (now Fusion Lifecycle) and Fusion Lifecycle.
The low-hanging fruit—also known as a quick win—is an improvement that is visible, has early benefit, and can be implemented quickly after commencement of the project. It’s imperative at the beginning of projects to look for the low-hanging fruit in your cloud solution to show a return early. Picking a low-hanging fruit means early delivery, which retains stakeholder interest—and this, in turn, encourages buy-in, adoption, and subsequent subscription renewals. This class will look at the criteria for the low-hanging fruit, and investigate the benefit of starting with a quick win. We will keep the class interactive with a lot of participant engagement. This session features PLM 360 (now Fusion Lifecycle) and Fusion Lifecycle.
Product lifecycle management (PLM) projects involve many people who have different competencies and goals for the project. Gathering relevant data about your business processes can be one of the most difficult tasks for the consultant helping you build your system. You will learn what information is and is not important for preparing for a successful Fusion Lifecycle implementation. You will be provided tips on how to see the end goal and understand the implementation process. You will receive the knowledge necessary to be prepared before, during, and after the implementation from both an implementer’s stance and an end user through a customer case study. You will become knowledgeable on what data is valuable to prepare and provide to your consultant before and during implementation and then see these items related back to the functionality in PLM. In the end, you will know what information you should seek to provide to enable your consultant to deliver a Fusion Lifecycle solution that fits your business needs.
