Structured Specifications Management

Manage specifications across the lifecycle from concept to production

Today, packaging specifications are scattered across multiple systems preventing proper management, review and control. This leads to higher costs and the potential for recall issues due to lack of materials control across the enterprise.  The Structured Specifications solution from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform properly enables companies to define and manage any kinds of product specifications including, but not limited to: formulations, raw material, packaging components and work instructions.  It provides a centralized method to author, approve, manage and drive reuse of packaging specifications. It enables companies to use structured specifications to build and maintain multi-level bill of materials (BOMs), conduct “where-used” analysis and identify packaging material savings.

The solution is easily integrated with company external systems such as ERP and CAD to get products to market faster, improve design efficiency and lower the cost of new product introductions.  Structured Specifications Management ensures that “a single version of the truth” is shared across the extended enterprise for product data. This enables companies to bring products to market faster while maximizing reuse of information to reduce costs.

Benefits of the Structured Specifications Management solution:

  • Drive economies of scale in procurement by maximizing re-use of specifications
  • Improve data quality by standardizing product definition with templates and formally control changes
  • Protect company IP through securing accessible specifications by product development functions inside and outside the company
  • Meet proper regulatory and legal requirements by setting repeatable standard review and approval processes across the global enterprise
