Engineer-to-order (ETO) configurators offer a powerful way to capture engineering and business rules and generate reliable and timely engineering drawings, 3D models, and product data. The challenge is to harness this capability within sales, order, and other managed workflows. Join experts in the design and development of solutions around Inventor ETO and Autodesk PLM 360 cloud-based product lifecycle management products and services to review the challenges and opportunities for meeting this challenge. In this class, we review the workflow management requirements of ETO solutions and consider configuration management architectures and tools that can support this need.
- Explain why a configuration process must be part of a managed workflow
- Identify PLM 360 workflow tools for managing configuration processes
- Identify the standard and reusable elements of a PLM configuration workspace
- Design custom PLM configuration workflows that are built on the standards you learned
