McLaren Software, an independent software vendor specializing in applications for engineering process and content management, has announced the release of Version 3.5 of its application suite, Enterprise Engineer. The new release extends the broad, document-centric capabilities of earlier versions of Enterprise Engineer, thanks largely to its comprehensive work-management capabilities. This allows executives to gain insights into their company’s engineering operations and centralize control of key processes across the enterprise. Version 3.5 features include: A work management and audit-trail capability that enables companies to oversee and manage engineering tasks; A formal review and approval process that allows engineers to mark up individual sections of large-scale drawings with interactive comments and ensures all approvals are recorded with appropriate sign off information – including electronic signatures (double-blind signoff for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance) as well as an indication of the reason for specific approval; A new EE Transmittals application that provides audit trails, multiple notification mechanisms, automatic rendering of transmittal documents and reporting on transmittal status; A new EE Transmittals portal providing support for the auditable transmission of controlled documents and drawings to external organizations; A new EE Office Manager that integrates with Microsoft Office, allowing users to utilize all Microsoft applications as part of their engineering process; New business reports for managing engineering projects and tasks, including status reporting and exception reporting; Enhanced EE Drawing Manager providing direct access to the complete set of Enterprise Engineer functionality from within leading CAD environments; and Flexible integration with both the EMC Documentum and FileNet P8 platforms.
