Pilgrim unveils SmartEngineer software to integrate compliance solutions

Pilgrim Software : 03 July, 2008  (New Product)
Pilgrim Software has introduced its SmartEngineer technology, an optional solution designed to integrate Engineering with Quality, Change Management and Compliance.
SmartEngineer technology enables companies to manage 3-D and 2-D CAD models within Pilgrim’s Document Management solution.

Traditional CAD programs do not comprehensively integrate with an overall quality and compliance management system, so engineers are left with managing and leaving a company's key IP on their private computer, making it difficult to track changes or share information.

The result is exposure to regulatory risk for design controls and decreased efficiency, countless revisions, and increased expenses. Pilgrim is introducing SmartEngineer to integrate document management capabilities with CAD models of PTC PRO/E.

“Quality is paramount in all regulated industries, but Quality by Design is starting the product process smart,” said Atulya Risal, chief technology officer for Pilgrim Software. “For companies that do not engage Product Lifecycle/Data Management (PLM/PDM) systems, managing daily product engineering designs, from initial concept through review, to design transfer and usage by operations and supply chain, can be a daunting task. With SmartEngineer, an organization will have version control for all its engineering drawings in a centralised repository that can include all related product, process and quality documentation.”

By providing easy access to drawings and specifications, cross-functional barriers will reduce the overall design approval and transfer cycle, and eliminate costly ‘over-the-wall’ syndrome between Engineering and Manufacturing. In addition, Quality and Manufacturing can more easily access, reference or even make change requests back to Engineering in response to defects, complaints, corrective actions or other design change considerations such as improved manufacturability.

“With SmartEngineer, organizations now have a single organization-wide solution for all their document management needs whether for quality, manufacturing, operational or engineering documents,” Risal said. “All parts of the organization and management can easily stay abreast of changes, escalations and action items, making it easier to manage new product innovation across the product value chain, minimize design issues, and expedite the time to market.”

SmartEngineer is sold as an add-on solution to Pilgrim’s Document Management solution.
