SSA Global announced it is enhancing its position in the product lifecycle management (PLM) market with Enterprise Content Management in their SSA PLM Suite for Discrete and Process Manufacturers. SSA Enterprise Content Management shares, manages and consolidates product data from different enterprise departments and extends the information to all organization levels. Organization members from separate departments can leverage enterprise content and engineering information and incorporate it in their business processes allowing seamless information flow. SSA Enterprise Content Management supports a manufacturer’s PLM strategy to align inter-department communication with role-driven data access and visualization. The application functions as a product data navigator within an enterprise, working with various systems such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Data Management (PDM) to manage and share product-related information across departments. It also allows various users controlled access to engineering data, such as product structures, drawings, and design files.
