What is Change Management?
Arena engineering change management software is an essential part of your product realization success. Arena streamlines product review processes in context with the entire product record and related processes, enabling internal teams and external partners to collaborate effectively. With Arena you ensure changes are complete and accurate. Faster review cycles enable faster time to market.
What Does It Do?
With Arena, you can create, route, track, and release engineering changes quickly and effectively. Change processes are accelerated with automated routings based on specified criteria including change types, priorities, product lines, and other key attributes. Reviewers are notified through e-mails and dashboards. Product teams can view change cycle time performance, backlog, and change progress across all products and product lines.
Managing product changes with engineering change management software accelerates product improvements—new features, better quality, and/or lower cost of goods sold (COGS). It also simplifies involving specialists from your external supply chain partners during the review process.
Everyone on your product team—from design to operations to your entire supply chain—can collaborate quickly to speed time-to-market.
- Supply chain partners can share information before and after changes are released to streamline design for manufacturability (DFM) processes.
- Procurement teams can share compliance and availability information throughout the development process to avoid purchasing non-compliant or difficult to source components.
- Quality teams accelerate product quality improvements with change processes linked with quality/CAPA processes.
- Engineering teams gain increased visibility through final production and eliminate burdensome administration.
