They say it takes people, process, and technology for any new implementation to be successful; my experience has taught me that the reality is exactly in that order. In this class, you will learn about our experiences in implementing and managing Autodesk Vault Professional software and training our staff to use it. Drawing on experiences from our implementation of Autodesk PLM 360, we will discuss Specialist Marine Interiors' experience throughout the implementation. You will hear what we have achieved and how we got there, including lessons learned and best practices. We will also cover the details of how to set up workspaces in Autodesk PLM 360, including configuration details and concepts.
- Describe how SMI created its own workspaces that track products from factory to installation with PLM 360
- Avoid mistakes SMI made during their initial implementation of Vault and PLM 360 and use best practices for working with the software
- Plan your Vault implementation while considering downstream BOM integration
- Explain why training your staff about the process and technology is key to implementation success
Scott Moyse is a Manufacturing, CAM & Data Management Technical Specialist for CADPRO Systems in New Zealand. He previously worked at SMI for over 9 years after moving from the UK while studying Motorsport Engineering. He started out as design support & quickly moved into programming their new CNC machine. Over the next 4 years he worked closely with both manufacturing & design to create & implement automated processes. This provided him with an invaluable insight into both departments operations. In 2008 he moved back into design full-time, resulting in him taking the Design Manager position in 2009. Since then he's implemented & managed Autodesk Vault Professional, improving communication, work allocation, organization & increased control over the design review process. Over the years he has been deeply involved in process formation, implementation & development in an ever changing environment. He also regularly contributes on designandmotion.net
