As Automation increases in manufacturing, the need to put advanced processes in place to keeping track of your soft assets (engineering diagrams, plans, component designs, CNC programs, becomes critical to a company’s ability to function. Of key importance is having processes in place to know exactly what is changing, who can review and approve those changes, and enabling the collaboration of multiple people and divisions. The increased automation has meant that manufacturing design is becoming more and more like the software industry; fortunately, there are proven “tried and true” processes used in the software industry than can be directly transferred to CNC-based manufacturing. This session will describe standard policies and processes the need to be in place to support managing designs. A few examples of using these processes will be demonstrated using off-the-shelf manufacturing products. The examples will also use Cloud-based configuration management systems to illustrate how collaboration between people and divisions is accomplished, including electronic design reviews and signoffs, deployment of approved component packages, and maintenance of design histories. The session will also outline how these processes offer the side-benefit of helping companies protect themselves from accidental internal human errors, and outside threats like Ransomware.
