Oracle Unveils Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile We're pleased to feature a blog entry by guest author John Kelley, vice president of product value chain strategy, Oracle
There’s no doubt that the workforce is becoming more
mobile with every passing day. And while the mobile workforce offers
organizations many benefits, it can pose a challenge to effectively managing
complex product lifecycle processes.
To address this challenge and enhance decision making and
productivity across the entire lifecycle of a product, Oracle today announced
Oracle’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile. Part of Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management, the
new mobile application enables users to quickly, easily and securely access PLM
data from any location on their iPad and turn it into valuable and actionable
insights. Or in other words, say goodbye to approval bottlenecks!
Built on Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile,
the new Oracle PLM Mobile for Agile application supports strategic and
operational decision making and also enables partners to quickly and easily
develop and expand applications and processes for Agile PLM customers. With
access to comprehensive features and capabilities,
users can securely review, respond and react to a broad range of Agile PLM
Product Management Workflows. This includes default and configured:
PLM change orders and change requests from a range
of sources including engineering, manufacturing, packaging and document.
PLM quality issue workflows including customer
complaints, field requests and problem reports.
PLM quality management workflows including
corrective action and preventative action (CAPA) processes.
PLM supplier quality workflows including Supplier
Corrective Action Requests (SCAR) and Non-Conformance Reports (NCR).
In addition, Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
Mobile for Agile enables users to initiate, execute and manage report quality
issues and process flows by providing the mobile capabilities needed to:
Input audit findings and issues on-site, with
dynamic links to product quality information and status.
Take advantage of cameras within mobile devices to
record dynamic views of any findings as supporting evidence.
Initiate related NCR, problem reports, SCAR, and
corrective action requests (CAR), during the audit process.
Last but not least, the new release also supports
organizations with outsourced manufacturing and process suppliers by enabling
them to conduct on-site supplier audits with access to the product record as
needed to manage the process, hasten finding resolution and approve
The combination of all the new capabilities makes it
easier than ever to securely access and manage PLM data at any time or from any
location. To see how Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile
can help your organization, please watch the demo video.
