PRODUCT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT (PLM)
Product Lifecycle Management can be associated with documents and drawings or changes in workflow steps ensuring appropriate actions are identified and approved. Documents and drawings associated to products and processes can be managed throughout their lifecycle based on their state, from original design, to revision, to QA, to release, to obsolescence, and through to archive or delete. ImageSite monitors and manages files and folders to ensure changes in state automatically trigger associated functions including: versioning, notifications, initiating workflows, and many other key processes
Establish criteria for triggering document/ drawing state changes
Advanced revisioning with major and minor versions and preset locations
Launch actions based on version, time, or field-specific changes throughout the document/drawing lifecycle
Move files to applicable folders or projects based on retention and archival schedules
