Business Challenges
It is difficult to achieve cooperation between R&D and the manufacturing department
Throughout the R&D process, product characteristic costs are not taken into account, along with manufacturability and purchase potential and the need to depend on manual data communication during the manufacturing workflow, results in difficulty controlling the manufacturing workflow quality and data inaccuracy, resulting in frequent alterations and losses
Lack of data platforms based on knowledge management
Recording data generated during the R&D process in file format makes it hard to retrieve and utilise the information contained therein and promote R&D innovation
Irregular, inconsistent, relay-style/serial product development workflow
Serial product development model, complicated integration of R&D workflow, lack of tools to effectively control project planning and scheduling along with communication, quality, risk, costs and deliverables
Lack of innovative, effective product planning
Lack of a specialised market management team and demand analysis management system means that product development is far removed from actual market demand, and no long-term product strategic planning is carried out
Kingdee Cloud Galaxy PLM Solutions
Cloud Galaxy PLM Solutions is based on Kingdee Cloud Galaxy unified platform, a solution for product R&D management. Data transfer between R&D teams and manufacturing teams is achievable even without an integrated interface. The workflow and project task flow on the unified platform are available to users from any department and can be forwarded to other departments. All departments throughout the company can accept project tasks initiated by the R&D department and participate in the workflow, achieving a high degree of migration of R&D to IT and platforms.
Engineering Modification Management Solutions
Traditional PLM methods often only focus on changing designs, and are not able to alter work documents for production, warehousing, procurement, sales, etc. With Cloud Galaxy PLM, the impact affects three levels of R&D/supply chain/manufacturing at the application stage. Analysis of these three levels serves to mitigate losses caused by such modifications. At the implementation stage, the supply chain/manufacturing modifications can be implemented simultaneously.

R&D Materials Management Solutions
R&D is the primary source for new material production. Cloud Galaxy PLM helps companies establish a R&D-based materials catalogue and helps monitor the process of production of new materials by means of its new material approval process, while unifying material descriptions so as to avoid multiple product codes for the same item and the disorderly increase of new materials, decreasing overlapping designs, and helping companies monitor product costs during the early stage of R&D.

Advantages
Ease of Operation
The unified PLM+ERP platform realizes the same database, the same application process, and the same user interface, eliminating the need for frequent switching between systems and improving ease of operation
R&D Process Cost Control
The R&D workflow creates material optimisation by collecting data such as inventory, price, delivery date, etc., helping companies control product costs directly from the source.
Workflow Cooperation across Departments and Fields
Only PLM+ERP based on a unified platform can achieve R&D data driven by business processes, and organise collaboration between different departments such as R&D, procurement and manufacturing.

Efficiency and Consistency of Data Synchronisation
Unified platform PLM+ERP does not need to synchronise data through the interface and completely eliminates data discrepancies arising from heterogeneous systems.
