Total Engineering Change Management (TECM)

About This Solution

Managing products and manufacturing processes is challenging especially if your PLM or PDM solution isn’t integrated with Dynamics.  Total Engineering Change Management (TECM) is the answer.

With TECM, new products are engineered in a sandbox which duplicates the Dynamics product tables. This means that new designs and changes are modeled in an environment that will not impact active products until they are released into production.  It also helps protect confidential new designs and IP by limiting access to the design team members.

Manage Products, Bills of Material, Routes, and Formulas in the sandbox from a central engineering order.  Model new products or changes to products in the sandbox and release them to the production environment through workflow and e-signatures.  Perform cost and price calculation on new designs including manufacturing consumption costs.  Change products, BOMs or purchased items and quickly see a detailed analysis showing the costs and what inventory and processes would be impacted.

TECM is an integrated solution providing real-time connectivity to your other Microsoft Dynamics modules. TECM inherits the core features of Dynamics including user setup, security, report writers, and interface. You’ll come up to speed quickly with our integrated Engineering Management solution and you’ll implement cost effectively.
