Fundamento para Excelência em Integração de Processos (2 dias)

How an organization identifies, structures, links and assigns ownership to its requirements and internal processes directly affect its ability to successfully and efficiently perform the intended mission or achieve its business objectives.

If this activity is ignored or done incorrectly, an organization pays severe penalties in the form of intervention resource expenditure. Those expenditures are the unplanned time, money, and resources expended to compensate for quality and schedule problems.

When quality and schedule problems dominate the energy an organization expends on a daily basis, corrective action becomes the standard “way of working”. Changing that environment requires an understanding of how current processes relate to best practices and the culture change that is needed to make the transition.

This course presents a structured and effective methodology for documenting, validating, releasing, and changing requirements. In addition to provides methods for reducing intervention resource costs. It addresses the process enhancements that an organization must make in order to accommodate change and keep all requirements clear, concise, and valid.

Fundamentos para Gestão de Requerimentos (2 dias)

Requirements management is the foundation for the Digital Thread. Organizations struggle with the ability to define and maintain the digital architecture needed to support Software, Hardware, Systems, Facilities and Infrastructure throughout the entire lifecycle. The inability to effectively manage the Digital Thread creates a high level of corrective action in every phase of the lifecycle.

Configuration management is the major backbone of requirements management and requirements management is a major building block in the creation and management of the Digital Thread. Understanding that relationship is imperative when defining the future mode of operating.

This course establishes the roadmap that facilitates an organization’s ability to create a world-class enterprise Digital Thread. This is achieved through the application of a set of proven principles and techniques. When properly applied, this improved business model enhances the development, structuring, and managing of requirements throughout the enterprise.

This course focuses on the foundational elements of requirements management including the structuring and ownership of all product, solution, and business requirements. It will detail the first steps in the creation of the Digital Thread…the concept and development phases of any project.

Fundamentos para Gestão de Alterações  (2 dias)

Organizations continually struggle to define a fast and efficient change management process. Many organizations have changed or replaced their change process multiple times without understanding the dynamics of change or the building blocks needed to facilitate change management.

Struggles with item re-identification decisions and the required level of visibility of changes directly impact the ability to develop and maintain the digital twin. The management of change includes understanding it’s impact throughout the entire organization and the total product/solution lifecycle.

This course introduces a closed-loop change process and identifies several enabling building blocks that reside outside the scope of the change process. The concept of Enterprise Configuration Management (ECM) is dependent upon those building blocks. It also provides a decision tree that defines the proper rules for managing re-identification and ensuring full visibility of the digital twin.

This course also addresses the cultural changes that must be understood and implemented to facilitate the needed improvements in the change process. The end goal is to always present the organization with requirements that are clear, concise and valid. That can only be achieved by a fast and efficient process that accommodates change.

Gestão de Configuração Corporativa (2 dias)

The inability of an organization to successfully manage the digital thread ties directly back to their inability to effectively manage change. Most organizations have subject matter experts (SMEs) identified for each key discipline, but rarely do organizations have a SME focused on the management of change.

This course will address the importance of Enterprise Configuration Management and introduce the roles, responsibilities and workflows required for a world-class organization to efficiently manage change. Thereby ensuring that the digital thread remains intact throughout the entire lifecycle of the product/solution, and that the digital twin is accurate.

This course introduces the power and efficiency of the CM2 closed-loop and fast-track change processes. Those processes are dependent on the building blocks and enabling principles defined in Course 01 through 03.

Once the methodology defined in this course is implemented, an organization’s view and perspective of their change management process will shift from it being a “necessary evil” to it being a true competitive advantage.

Otimizando a Trilha Digital (2 dias)

All organizations struggle with the ability to manage information accurately for the enterprise or throughout the product/solution lifecycle. This failure creates a high level of intervention resource expenditure and an inability to track fielded configurations. This drives significant warranty, recall, and concession costs that can have devastating impacts on the business.

To tap the power of the Digital Thread and to facilitate a true Digital Twin, all facets of the organization and all lifecycle phases are reliant upon the Enterprise Configuration Management (ECM) process. Activities driven through the Digital Thread impact the Digital Twin with a constant barrage of changes making the ability to manage the Digital Twin that much more complex.

This course introduces critical additions to the process flows and roles previously defined in the Enterprise Configuration Management process. These additions are critical to the management of the Digital Thread and visibility of the Digital Twin in the operation and maintenance lifecycle phase.

This course also identifies the differences and challenges associated with managing the Digital Twin as it progresses through each of the lifecycle phases. The role of ECM in the management of the supply chain is also shown to be critical to managing the digital thread.

Alcançando a implementação corporativa (2 dias)

Organizations continue to be disappointed with the results of efforts to implement improvements to legacy PDM, PLM, and/or ERP systems. Even when opportunities for specific improvements are identified, they struggle with the ability to achieve successful implementation. These improvement projects are oftentimes reduced in scope and still experience cost overruns and missed schedules.

The negative experiences described above are also realized when an organization launches a process reengineering project. These common failures are not the problem…they are simply symptoms of an underlying bigger issue, an inability to properly manage and implement changes.

This course provides the path to achieving Enterprise Configuration Management (ECM), the enabling process needed to improve an organization’s tools and other core business processes. It includes a step-by-step simulation for establishing the proper foundation to successfully implement any identified tool or process improvement opportunity.

This course also shows how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of current business practices, where to focus attention, how to develop a transition plan, and how to manage and ensure that the project meets it’s stated goals and yields the intended results.

Executando a Excelência em Integração de Processos (2 dias)

The number of organizations that have achieved integrated process excellence is smaller than it should be. This is because most organizations continue to use configuration management (CM) in a limited role, only applying it to design information. Those organizations process a high volume of deviations and waivers; use redlines and assume firefighting is normal business practice.

In order to achieve Integrated Process Excellence an organization must break the many paradigms generally associated with configuration management’s limited role. The phased transition from that limited approach to CM2 is a major culture change that must be carefully planned and managed.

The foundation of that new culture is the ability to change faster and document better. The application of that ability is extended beyond design information to include all requirements for the enterprise, and the enterprise deliverables throughout all of the lifecycle phases. Keeping all of those requirements clear, concise, and valid at all times is the goal…a very achievable goal.

This course introduces a 2-phase approach to be used for creating the foundation to enhance the efficiency of each core business process. It will identify the key elements that must be in place reaffirm that the proper approach is to define the process first, then select the enabling tool.

Habilitando Transformação Digital (2 dias)

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools excel in two major areas…managing documented product requirements and change process workflows — areas that ERP tools historically have not addressed. PLM tools should be able to provide the functionality needed to support as-planned/ as-released baselines and the closed-loop change process.

How to maintain the Digital Thread from the baseline to the planning bill, then from the planning bill to the order bill, and finally from the order bill to the actual as-built record is a major challenge. Knowing which requirements, at which revision level, to use at any point in time is another.

This course will describe how planning bills and order bills are created and maintained within the PLM, ERP, ALM, and CLM tools. It will describe how to use work authorizations to close the loop on order bills and ensure that the correct documents are utilized. It will describe the CM2 approach for managing and leveraging metadata and how to optimize reuse.

This course will establish a detailed process for defining the core elements that must be present in a successful tool implementation. It describes standard CM2-600 Enabling Tool Pre-Assessment Guide for assessing and certifying the ability of enabling tools to support the IPE/CM2 model.
