Solution for Business Collaboration in the Manufacturing Market

With manufacturers facing increasingly intense competition in the global market, it is no longer sufficient for these companies to improve the efficiency of work processes at manufacturing sites alone. To achieve significant gains in productivity, it is necessary to increase efficiency and optimization over the entire value chain. While 3D design and digital engineering technologies used in design and at manufacturing sites have the potential to greatly improve efficiency in the manufacturing process, issues that arise when collaborating with multiple subcontractors and partners are preventing these tools from being fully utilized. This paper introduces Fuji Xerox's response to these issues: a solution integrating 3D data management technology, cloud networking technology, and ArcSuite® Engineering, a web-based information management system with a proven track record in providing document management and knowledge-sharing technologies to manufacturing companies. This solution package resolves intercompany collaboration issues while also contributing to increased efficiency and optimization of each work process in the value chain.
