  5. 5. Lessons Learned Use ItBuild ItMap it Fusion Lifecycle & NPI Session Agenda
  6. 6. Why Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle • Limited IT Support • Low Cost of Entry • Easy to Administer, support • Secure with Limited infrastructure • Cloud Based • Administration & End User Experience • Configurability • Broad Application to Business Cases • Ability to integrate to other business systems • Cost of Ownership Common Customer Issues Fusion Lifecycle 360
  7. 7. Why Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle • Improvement #1: Have key suppliers directly involved in Change Notice process. • Roadblocks: • Needed VPN access and active directory account • Purchase additional licenses • Impact: • Continued to use email to loop in the suppliers • Changes were not executed by supplier • How Fusion Lifecycle provides this improvement • All apps included • Cloud based - no VPN required, no active directory account needed • 3rd party licenses are free (for enterprise level customers) Fusion Lifecycle Advantage
  8. 8. Why Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle • Improvement #2: Small, incremental improvements to forms and fields (changing fields, rearranging forms) • Roadblocks: • Complex administration and configuration • Consulting fees • Impact: • Stifled user engagement • How Fusion Lifecycle provides this improvement • Administration and configuration functionality much more simple Fusion Lifecycle Advantage
  9. 9. Why Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle • Improvement #3: Equipment Calibration (or Field Service Report, or RMA) process. • Roadblocks: • No out of the box functionality • Very complex to create workflows, forms, and fields • Impact: • Continued to use Excel, and paper based processes that were known to be inefficient • How Fusion Lifecycle provides this improvement • Autodesk created an app just for this. Awesome. • Fusion Lifecycle’s ease of use makes it realistic to implement. Fusion Lifecycle Advantage
  10. 10. Why Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle • Improvement #4: New Product Costing. • Roadblocks: • ERP remained master for financial information • Integration was too complex • Impact • Continued process of a data dump into Excel spreadsheet • BOM and costing information became less accurate as the project evolved • How Fusion Lifecycle provides this improvement • Fusion Lifecycle’s integration capabilities are much simpler – not only to setup, but also to maintain. • Rodney has a presentation from 3-4 in the Berks room Fusion Lifecycle Advantage
  11. 11. Companies have many different methods that are not scalable or providing the desired results • Email, Spreadsheets, Network Drives, SharePoint With scattered information and a lack of control people are uninformed of: • Change - when, where, and why it took place • Where to find documentation, reports, product information Why PLM for NPI

  16. 16. Why Fusion Lifecycle works with the Iterative Design Process • Quickly build and show the foundation of the processes • Easily change and iterate the design and process • Facilitate functional design meetings • Helps capture many requirements in real time Fusion LC & the Iterative Design Process
  17. 17. Identifying your NPI Needs People & Process
  18. 18. Identifying the key business applications that apply to NPI Identifying NPI Needs: Business Solutions Product Management • Items & BOMS • Project Management • Task Management & Validation Change Management • Change Requests • Change Orders Supplier Management • Business Audit Document Management • Revision Controlled Documents • Non-Revision Controlled Documents
  19. 19. Identifying the key business system integration that apply to NPI Often times business systems already in place are part of the overall NPI process and must be considered for integration to Fusion Lifecycle in order to complete the NPI process Common Use Cases: Items & BOMs, Suppliers, Customers, etc. Identifying NPI Needs: Integration
  20. 20. The number one goal: • Bring data and processes together in a single, easily consumed process Identifying NPI Needs: Data
  21. 21. Mapping out the Solution Map It

  55. 55. Requirements for Mapping Phase • Core Team + Subject Matter Experts • PLM Software Matter Expert The Know and No • “Know” the scope of what you are building • Don’t be afraid to say “No” Have a third party document the requirements • All parties confirm the requirements • Avoid the “I said A, you heard B, then built C” scenario Lessons Learned: Map It
  56. 56. Have an agreed upon plan • Document the foundation Workspace architecture and workflow first • Automate later. Moving targets are hard to hit. Integrate last when the workflow is static • Moving targets get even harder to hit when integration is involved Limit changes as you near the end • Only minor changes past core team acceptance • Stand by what you built Lessons Learned: Build It
  57. 57. Find capable, enthusiastic adopters for training • Likely to give good, constructive feedback • Likely to play in the system and find things you may have missed • Likely to stay positive and spread the word Have a wingman in your early training sessions • Allows you to focus on the adopters while they document changes Lessons Learned: Use It
