We have all encountered documents which “refer” to other documents. What if one document could actually “talk” to another document? A document which talks could tell others that reference it that something changed! That table copied into a drawing would “know” that a value in the source document has changed! What if the Manufacturing BOM or Bill Of Process could raise a flag when the material specification for that widget has changed! What if your Test or Inspection specification could tell you the acceptance criteria changed! Think of the time, frustration and money that can be saved. Making documents talk to each other is the definition of “Smart Connected Documents” and when coupled with CAD & PLM is a game changing combination.
The session begins with the challenge, describes the journey and finishes with a summary of the benefits and future potential of Smart Documents.
