Engineering Change Management Process
Bluestar PLM enables users to promote engineering changes through the entire change cycle all the way from request through the actual implementation of the change in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations & AX (365/AX) production system.
Thanks to its integration with both ERP and CAD environments, it provides complete transparency in the cost and logistic feasibility of engineering changes while securing that engineering documentation is always up-to-date.
