PD1571CA - Global Part Numbering: A ThingWorx Powered Approach

Attend this session for an in-depth look at a ThingWorx powered approach to a Global Part Number system at Franklin Electric. We'll see how a ThingWorx hosted UI can serve as a single point of data entry spanning PLM and ERP. Starting top-down, we will drill into how WTPart, CAD and Drawing objects, relationships, naming, numbering, attribution, and classification are all created automatically and consistently from a unified, streamlined interface. The result is increased data quality, higher user efficiency and wider overall cross-adoption of PLM and ERP. In addition to unified data initialization, the app supports renaming/ numbering of existing designs, granting engineers and designers reduced overhead while in the concept phase. As designs mature the app enables users to "bless" their work- CAD, WTPart, Drawings are noun named/ numbered appropriately and the associated ERP Item Master is generated automatically. Finally, the app supports several Franklin Electric custom business logic use cases.
