Can we manage multiple product variants?
Makersite has full version control for your data, allowing you to track product information at all stages of the product lifecycle. It automatically detects commonalities between product BOMs using component analysis and reduces duplication of part information.
Can I manage process information?
Yes, Makersite is designed to manage all kinds of data that you generate in the process of making products. That includes amongst other things granular activity information.
We already have a PDM/PLM solution. How would Makersite help?
This depends on the implementation of your current solution. The core purpose of Makersite is decision support - helping your company understand a product from different angles and understanding the implications of internal and external changes to the business in real-time. This typically goes beyond the scope of what PDM and PLM systems do. PDMs can simplify the implementation and use of Makersite by providing a basis of BOM or product data. Please contact us to talk to an expert about this topic.
What systems does Makersite integrate with?
Makersite has an API-first policy which means that all our functionality can be accessed through APIs. This allows for integration into a wide range of systems including ERP, PDM, PLM, QMS, EHS and legacy systems
We have complicated products. Would Makersite scale?
Makersite uses cutting edge technologies to combat the problem of decreasing performance with increasing complexity. This includes a fundamentally different approach to storing information, a micro-service based distributed architecture and more. Get in touch with us for more information on this topic.
