This optional add-on module for all E³.series applications enables you to compare and document changes between projects, providing reports and tracking for traceability and comparability in the design of wiring, harness, cable assembly, control panel, and cabinet design. In addition to improving the efficiency of change processes, it also enables users to verify compliance with industry standards.
E³.RevisionManagement compares two versions of a project, usually the current version to a previous version, or the current version to a marked-up version. The analysis and change results are clearly identified for the user, with modifications highlighted through changed colors, a change table, balloon markers, and a spreadsheet showing detailed changes including non-graphical attributes in the design. This enables users to track variations with previous designs and analyze changes suggested by reviewers of the design, making it much easier to apply the resulting ECO’s (Engineering Change Orders) for production and manufacturing of end products including machines, trains, airplanes, special vehicles and automobiles.
E³.RevisionManagement is integrated with E³.e-PLM and SAP R/3, and can also be customized to integrate with other data management solutions. This allows you to launch E³.RevisionManagement through your PLM solution, enable the recognition of changes made between two versions of a project stored in the PLM environment, and use E³.series to display those modifications. Once complete, the revision analysis can be stored as part of the project history.
As each organization’s design environment is different so are their needs to document a change. E³.RevisionManagement provides the ability to configure the classifications of a change and the methods in which these changes are reported to provide the maximum amount of flexibility to the user.
