XFT Change Manager

Embrace Change

Gain Greater Control over Component and Product Changes

Innovation starts small. When you make product changes, you carry out improvements in a structured way. Milestones, tests, and approvals are clearly defined, and many areas of the business are involved: from development, quality management, and purchasing to scheduling and production. Suppliers are usually part of this process, too. And you are responsible for coordinating all these activities.

XFT Change Manager enables you to create and manage new and altered drawings, materials, bills of materials (BOMs), and bills of operations. You can identify which innovations are worth implementing and bring new products to market more quickly.

How It Works

XFT Change Manager makes it easier for your employees to strategically develop and enhance products and components. To do this, they first gather all proposed changes so the project team can evaluate them and carry out technical feasibility checks. If everything is okay, a change order is created from the proposal or request. This contains a description of the project scope, definitions of the adapted bills of materials, and updated drawings or altered production specifications.

You can manage all these tasks clearly and simply, and assign them to individual employees, using XFT Task Manager. This allows you to maintain an overview of the status of each task at all times. And, with the help of workflows, you can easily gain approvals using XFT Compliance Cycle. All necessary documentation, such as specifications, sample documents, and certificates, is stored centrally by the software. This ensures that you always have full transparency over the entire change process.

Via an interface, you can transfer drawings and bills of materials that have been edited using CAD or PDM software to the logistics module of your SAP system. XFT Change Manager automates this process ­– so you can work without interruption and finally hand over the agreed changes to your production facilities.

Benefits

Shorter cycle times: Thanks to a guided process flow, you avoid unnecessary tasks and implement changes quicker.

Greater transparency: Scope, tasks, and results are managed clearly and transparently in process records.

Higher quality: Recognize problems earlier in the process and improve the quality of changes.

Less risk, more compliance: All necessary steps and activities are carried out in a controlled manner and documented. This ensures your team doesn’t miss out any steps and that it reaches every milestone on time.

Fully Integrated into Your SAP System

Manage change processes centrally in your SAP system, integrated into your logistics operations with access to the full scope of change (materials, bills of materials, drawings, bills of operations). This allows you to map the entire chain of processes from development to production.
