The development of a true enterprise-scale engineering automation solution can involve a lot of moving parts and pieces. From the capture and integration of the engineering-based content, to integration with other systems such as CRM and ERP, to the impact on roles and processes, a strategic roadmap is often critical to success.
Engineering Intent offers proven and valuable experience in working closely with organizations, large and small. We help you analyze the impact of enterprise automation and build strategic roadmaps to guide the project from initial whiteboarding through deployment and ongoing maintenance.
More than just Engineering
While engineering automation applications are obviously focused on capturing and automation engineering processes and knowledge, an enterprise-scale solution typically impacts people and departments well beyond engineering.
Costing and pricing can be integrated with ERP systems
Data for the factory can be integrated into CAM and robotic systems automation
External sales and distributor organizations can benefit from new, often interactive enterprise web pages
New ways to accomplish engineering usually require training and process change
The ongoing ‘care and feeding’ of a strategic system must be anticipated well before deployment begins
For all of these reasons and more, a strategic roadmap guides an organization to a successful rollout, leveraging its investment in the technology by paving a clear path to the future.
