Leveraging the Supply Base: Collaborate on Equal Terms with CoCreate’s OneSpace.net (TT)
Where is the "magic wand" that provides the automotive supply chain and other product manufacturing companies a growth path in product sales and profits when confronted with growing demands for new, innovative products that address more narrow markets, the increase of product complexity, and constant margin and cost pressures? The answer may well be in how competently they communicate as a team, both within their own product workgroups and throughout their diverse worldwide supply chains, to accelerate decision making and reduce product delays. To meet these needs, CoCreate Software's OneSpace.net product leverages key technology enablers of multi-CAD lightweight model and meta data viewing for workgroup collaboration, rapid 3D application sharing, and dedicated links to a company's established PDM and ERP data repositories (RealLinks) built upon a secure Internet-based architecture.
