Watch the brief demo video below to see how Anark Collaborate redefines collaboration for manufacturers.
What problem does this solve? Exchanging technical product data one file at a time is costly, time-consuming nuisance that results in errors, scrap and other avoidable costs. Zip files and generic file sharing platforms aren’t much better. Recent research shows that 72% of discrete manufacturers feel their process of creating and sharing technical data packages (TDPs) is ineffective. Not surprising when more than half of those companies report that they still use email attachments to share product data. This common problem is a result of tools that don’t contain all the product data needed for effective technical content collaboration.
How does Anark Collaborate solve the problem? Anark Collaborate Content Items contain the product data you need to optimize technical content collaboration within your manufacturing operation. Procurement, sourcing managers and other buyers need the bill of materials (BOM), part numbers, drawings, 3D visualization and related documents. Manufacturing operators need product manufacturing information (PMI), and related machine readable attachments like QIF. Engineers need to exchange STEP files and other neutral formats in addition to the 2D and 3D CAD. Service teams need technical documentation, drawing packages, and 3D visualization. Whether you need a standard package template for everyone, or specific package templates for various roles, Anark Collaborate brings it all together, synchronized with your version control. And consuming the data is as easy as opening a web browser on any device to access visually rich product data. Improve supplier collaboration, manufacturing and service operations, simplify data sharing, quickly deliver design packages to customers, and innovate faster!
