Tech Tips: Change and Issue Management with ENOVIA

Change and issue management is a critical aspect of any business dealing with products, whether physical goods or software. It is a process that ensures that changes made to products are well documented and tracked and that any issues that arise during the process are resolved in a timely and effective manner.  

ENOVIA provides an efficient and effective way to manage change and issue management. This video tutorial offers an excellent introduction to the fundamental change process using the change execution widget. 

 

 

Using the Change Execution Widget 

The change execution widget is a valuable tool in the 3DEXPERIENCE PC Role. It allows users to create change actions (CA) and manage them throughout the change process quickly and easily. Once the widget is opened, all CA’s owned or assigned to the user will be shown in recent. To create a new change action, click “New Change Action,” add a meaningful title, and choose where you want to make the CA. The CA will then be automatically opened, and additional information can be added by clicking the information button. 

Linking Issues in the Platform 

One of the most significant advantages of using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for change and issue management is that it allows users to link issues directly within the forum that must be resolved as part of the change process. Similarly, 3D markups can be added to support resolving an issue or suggesting improvements as part of product development. 

Tracking Progress 

The platform also makes it easy to track the progress of a CA by updating the properties of the CA at any time to reflect progress. Assignees and approvers can be added to the CA, and the system automatically notifies them of their tasks. The items being proposed for change can be quickly and easily added by searching the platform, and not just CAD items but other object types such as documents, requirements, and more can be added.
