Surviving OEM Supply-Chain Mandates Webinar

January 2016

Knowledge workers in the enterprise need to access multiple authoritative engineering and manufacturing databases using a variety of processes to perform their role. Instead of saddling users with complex client tools and processes, this webinar explains how customers implement multi-data publishing with Anark Core. Bring together the engineering and technical data that knowledge workers need for their role, without the need for complex and expensive PLM or ERP client licenses.

Global OEM mandates, Innovation from non-traditional sources, increasing product complexity, growing supplier responsibility for quality and continuous, unrelenting pressures to reduce program cost are impacting suppliers like never before. Leading suppliers are fighting back with 3D Model-Based Enterprise strategies. What are these firms doing and how does your company measure up to the leaders? The MBE Supply Chain connection is a universal challenge in Automotive, Aerospace and more. In this webinar we draw some examples from Automotive, but understand the discussion and the underlying tools discussed apply to all supply chain challenges.
