WHY ERP-based PLM?

Embedded native AX PLM
"The missing Link" between Engineering and Operation

The ”Missing Link” Between Engineering and Manufacturing
By merging ERP and PLM environments into a single collaborative solution, it enables manufacturers to collaborate around a single set of product data across departments, locations, suppliers and customers. Since BLUESTAR PLM® is embedded in Microsoft Dynamics 365/AX, it connects users from sales, engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, and service in a single 365/AX-based solution, making a world of difference.


Reliable Product Data Across the Enterprise 

Manage and access data and documentation from CAD, Office, PLM and ERP in a single 365/AX-based solution. All data is revision controlled and made available to all departments and locations at the point of use – one source of product truth for the entire company.

The “Missing Link” Between Engineering and Manufacturing
Since BLUESTAR PLM is embedded in Dynamics 365/AX, it connects users from sales, engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, and service in a single 365/AX-based solution.

Out-Of-The-Box CAD-ERP Integration

Manages 2D/3D CAD files with a two-way exchange of meta-data between CAD and ERP. This ensures that CAD and ERP data are always kept in sync in a single solution.

Fewer Errors

With everyone working with a single set of data in a single solution, errors caused by data inconsistencies between CAD, PLM and ERP systems are eliminated.

Worldwide Collaboration

Enables distributed engineering and manufacturing teams to collaborate globally with quick access to centralized product data and distributed, up-to-date 3D files.

“All-Inclusive” Product Change Management

Since BLUESTAR PLM is embedded in Dynamics 365/AX ERP and integrates with CAD, you can manage all engineering and manufacturing change dependencies in a single solution. This includes affected designs as well as impacted work-in-progress such as production order, inventories, purchase orders, etc.

Start-To-Finish Business Process Automation

Because users from sales, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing are brought together on a common AX-based system, workflow automation can be applied across engineering and operations. This means that business processes can be mapped and executed from start to finish.

Lower TCO

BLUESTAR PLM is maintained as an integral part of Dynamics 365/AX. This provides a simple IT infrastructure with no redundant maintenance of stand-alone PLM systems required.
