The Dassault Systemes (DS) Enovia Component Supplier Management (CSM) Initiative is for high-tech companies wanting to effectively utilise design-for-cost capabilities early in the product lifecycle.

The DS Enovia CSM initiative is designed to enable companies to promote a more comprehensive design anywhere, manufacture anywhere strategy, incorporating global reuse, standardisation and utilisation of parts and components across the entire product development process.

This approach helps to drive organisational agility and savings by maximising margins, driving economies of scale, reducing cycle times and improving overall quality.

A recent AMR Research study highlighting the top priorities for high-tech manufacturing executives indicated that 19 per cent of respondents identified managing supplier quality, compliance and overall performance as being of paramount importance in 2008.

By integrating CSM into their design and manufacturing processes, companies have the added benefit of being able to track compliance for the materials and components the configuration of each product and integrate that data into the reporting process.

With the CSM solution, organisations can bring together engineering and sourcing functions to facilitate cost-effective part development decisions (or to enable effective design to cost strategy) to: drive economies of scale by maximising part reuse and component standardisation across product lines; support strategic sourcing strategies; improve component qualities and compliance with company quality policies and multiple geographical standards and regulations; reduce time to market by designing component reuse through standard and consistent development and introduction process; improve supply chain performance through supplier standardisation and AVL/AML (approved vendor list/approved manufacturer list) management; and support global business operations and DAMA (design anywhere, manufacture anywhere) strategy.

Based on its V6 collaborative business platform, Dassault Systemes delivers integrated PLM solutions for companies in the high-tech/electronics industry to help accelerate product development.

These high-tech/electronics PLM solutions integrate business process management with tools for design, engineering and manufacturing planning.
