Experience with VACCO Industries the effort of upgrading from PLM 360 software to Fusion Lifecycle software. This presentation will explore the planning and requirements used for the upgrade, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Working closely with Autodesk, this lecture can assist all existing Fusion Lifecycle customers and new potential customers as we discuss the pros and cons of each environment. We'll include a live demonstration and a peek into VACCO's workflows, integrated workspaces, and other system integrations with Vault data management software and ERP (enterprise resource planning).
Those who have implemented Fusion Lifecycle classic or who are think about becoming a Fusion Lifecycle customer
Martin Gasevski is a product manager of the Fusion Lifecycle (formerly PLM 360) product, operating from Autodesk, Inc.’s, Michigan office. He has been actively involved in the product lifecycle management (PLM) and product data management (PDM) space for about 15 years as a software developer, success engineer, and product manager. In his present role, Gasevski contributes to the product roadmap at strategic and tactical levels, driving market and business requirements to engineering teams. His responsibilities are core PLM functionalities; product extensibility strategy ranging from REST API, scripting and eventing engines, and enterprise integrations; and technological partnership solutions and innovations.
This class will introduce attendees to the Fusion Connect development platform. You will learn how to model a digital twin of your machine assets, and (using a little business logic, along with our point-and-click tools) you will learn how to build an Internet of Things application that turns your data into actionable events-visual status and graphs that you can capitalize on to collect operational feedback instantaneously from your customers and improve design, or build unique value business offerings based on your products. This session will feature Fusion Connect.
Is your company ready for a connected products solution? Where are you on your connected product journey? Do you have some definition around what the Internet of Things can do for you and your business? Regardless of where you are in your journey, this class is designed to provide you with some real-world examples of what a successful connected-product business looks like, and how you can start to develop a business case for your own implementation. From identifying design improvements, postsales support, and spares management business, through to advanced system-monitoring services and products as a service, we will look to identify your potential return on investment and phased approaches to your ultimate goal. This session will feature the Fusion Connect development platform.
The Bill of Materials (BoM) of your products are at the heart of everything you do in a PLM system, but a BoM is so much more than a simple list of components and subassemblies. Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle provides significant features and capabilities that improve the power and flexibility of what you can achieve with your BOMs. This class outlines those capabilities and shows you the value they can bring to your organization.
A hybrid cloud is a cloud-computing environment that uses a mix of applications on different infrastructures relying on orchestrated integration between the platforms. The infrastructures can be on-premise services; private cloud services; and third-party, public cloud services. This a legitimate option even if all the components are not pure cloud. Our Fusion Lifecycle implementations are typically hybrid cloud; we use Vault data management software (deployed as either on premise or private cloud) and Fusion Lifecycle software (pure cloud). These environments come with their own challenges. In this class, we'll discuss these challenges and provide recommendations on how to optimize these heterogeneous environments.
The class will aim to share relevant and transferable stories about cost-saving Fusion LifeCycle use cases as they relate to product management and internal operations.The class will focus on three areas: (1)Recognizing the overlooked losses in an organization - time; (2)How to transition from analog to digital management systems - the short term adversities and the long term payoff; and, (3)Using Fusion LifeCycle to promote positive culture change within your organization.
Your company uses Fusion Lifecycle software to collect and manage data, but there are so many hidden features, shortcuts, and ways to get things done. This class will provide you with more than 60 tips that you must know if you want to get the most out with Fusion Lifecycle. Get shortcuts for faster execution, automation, reporting, and more.
Fusion Lifecycle implementations can be performed in a number of different ways with varying degrees of success. Due to Fusion Lifecycle software's advantage of being highly configurable, companies can implement Fusion Lifecycle by going one process at a time ("land and expand"), or by taking the whole business process at once ("world domination"). During this class, learn how Advanced Solutions and BOA Technology utilized the "land and expand" method to make Fusion Lifecycle an integral part of the BOA business process. We'll walk through how BOA started with using Fusion Lifecycle to manage the firm's change management process ("land"), and how that quickly evolved into using Fusion Lifecycle to manage assets, problem reports, color samples, and issue tracking ("expand").
Join Andritz on the Smart Services journey that has catapulted the firm into the future. Discover how Andritz implemented a fully functioning spare-parts portal with lightning speed. Hear how the project team used an agile approach to integrate Autodesk Cloud Solutions into existing enterprise services. See how the team has realized a competitive advantage for Andritz selling spare parts against growing non-OEM (original equipment manufacturer) competition. Check out how easily Andritz customers can identify the spare part they need with confidence, even in the most complex equipment, and trigger an order process for speedy delivery. Be inspired by surprising aspects of the solution design and see how integration of Autodesk Cloud Services can retain customer satisfaction and ignite new business in a highly efficient manner. Everyone on the project has been excited by the possibilities and impact on Andritz.
Fusion Lifecycle software produces lots and lots of very valuable data. This data is arguably more valuable when you use it to integrate with external systems (like reporting databases) and drive external applications. In this class, we'll explore techniques for inserting Fusion Lifecycle data into an on-premise SQL database, and for driving a C# application using Fusion Lifecycle data. If you want to create a real-time reporting solution, then this class is for you.
Get a better understanding of the power of Fusion Lifecycle software by taking a closer look at its genetic makeup. In this class, we'll take a deeper look into its various parts, including the skeletal system (workspaces); the nervous system (notifications); the muscular system (workflow); the digestive system (import/export); the dermal system (presentation layer); and the autonomic system (scripting).
Product lifecycle management (PLM) projects involve many people with different competencies and goals for the project. Gathering relevant data about business processes can be one of the most difficult tasks for the consultant who's helping you build the system. You will learn what information is and is not important when preparing for a successful Fusion Lifecycle project. You will be provided with tips on how to see the end goal and understand the implementation process. You will receive the knowledge needed to be prepared before, during, and after the implementation from an implementer's stance, and from an end user through a customer case study. You will become knowledgeable about which data is valuable to prepare and provide to your consultant before and during implementation, and you'll then see these items related back to the functionality in PLM. In the end, you will know what you should seek to provide so that your consultant can deliver a Fusion Lifecycle solution that fits your business needs.
Albert Einstein said, "Any fool can know. The point is to understand." The intent of this class is to guide participants through the reporting capabilities of Fusion Lifecycle software. This class will not only demonstrate the capabilities of reporting in Fusion Lifecycle, it will also aid you in interpreting such reports and help you understand the decisions that can be made from such reports. The message to take away from this class is how to use Fusion Lifecycle as a catalyst to drive business decisions and ultimately business transformation. The class will be interactive with exercises.
