Setting up the ABV Sample with Agile 9.3.3

Hello all,

As we wrap up things towards the end of the year, I wanted to talk a little bit about how you can set up our Augmented Business Visualization sample PX with Agile 9.3.3.   If you are running Agile 9.3.3, and are using Agile EC to manage your 3D CAD data, it is quite simple to set it up so that users can create new ECRs or ECOs directly from the 3D view in AutoVue.   There are a couple of constraints around the sample PX - for example, you need to have the CAD connector configured so that the part, design and CAD file name all have the same name - but the PX is relatively easy to extend if this doesn't apply in your environment.

If your 9.3.3 system matches the constraints of the PX, all that is needed is to copy the PX file into the Agile extension folder - Once the PX is installed, you will be able to right click on any part in your 3D models, and create an ECR or ECO - and have the current assembly and the part you selected added as an affected item to the new object.

You can see what this looks like in action in a video on our youtube channel with the link below:


Screenshot of ECR Creation


There is a whitepaper that describes in more detail how the PX sample works, and gives advice on how to set it up and extend it if necessary


The sample PX and the whitepaper can be found on OTN: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E49948_05/otn/doclist.html  - the specific links are Whitepaper  and PX Sample

I'll close with wishing you all a happy holiday season whatever holiday you may choose to celebrate, and a happy new year!   We'll talk again in 2015!

SigmaTron International Automates Workflow, Shortens Engineering Change-Order Sign-Offs by Four Days

SigmaTron International Inc. is a contract manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs), wiring assemblies, and turn-key electronic products, serving original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the telecommunications, appliance, industrial, fitness, medical, and aviation sectors. The company has industry-certified manufacturing plants in the United States, Mexico, China, and Vietnam. At any time, SigmaTron is processing and managing information on several thousand assemblies, with tens of thousands of components, over seven manufacturing sites.

SigmaTron’s customers look to the company to help accelerate their times to market. As such, the company must be able to effectively collaborate with its clients, including managing documentation for and changes to the very complex and often highly-customized products it manufactures. Sharing product information with the various stakeholders in the engineering and manufacturing process is essential.

After acquiring multiple companies, SigmaTron began to struggle with integrating various silos of electronic-product documentation, spanning multiple continents. The company had been using Oracle’s Agile Product Collaboration in one facility to effectively track engineering change orders (ECOs) for its high-tech telecom and medical-industry customers. It looked to expand use of the solution to new locations to facilitate product lifecycle management across the growing enterprise.

To establish a single system of record for all electronics product information, SigmaTron upgraded its Agile Product Collaboration and extended the implementation to two other manufacturing sites. With the upgraded solution, SigmaTron improved manufacturing efficiency and its ability to adapt and customize products to meet specific customer requirements. With improved product data transparency and collaboration across borders, SigmaTron now has more flexibility in scheduling production across various manufacturing facilities—which helps it to better balance production. The company is also benefitting from prebuilt integration between Oracle’s AutoVue enterprise-visualization solutions and Agile Product Collaboration—facilitating document review and supporting real-time collaboration, while reducing reliance on physical documents.

Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization

The biggest challenge that we have as enterprise users is to quickly find the information we need in order to make the most optimal business decisions on a daily basis. Now, the challenge is that information is there, somewhere, but it is typically distributed across a mass of data and screens. So how do you “see” this information quickly and easily? How can we present “less” while delivering “more”? That is the objective of Oracle’s Next Generation Visualization, which will be presented at the Oracle Value Chain Summit (San Francisco, Feb 4-6, 2013) during a session entitled “Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization” (Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 3:15 pm). It is not about new skins and layouts, it is about a radical re-think of how Enterprise Applications should interact with users. The session will show how Oracle Fusion Applications is embracing new paradigms for presenting, interpreting and interacting with complex business information in a simplified and compelling way so that they can see the forest through the trees! Don’t miss this opportunity to get exclusive sneak peeks at ground-breaking technology! We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
