Together, they deliver up to date product configuration information resulting in improved visibility and more efficient manufacturing operations.

Requiring dramatically less resources, the PLM solutions and Rootstock allow you to recoup your investment quickly while delivering a robust manufacturing solution that enables you to be more responsive to changing customer needs.
The Rootstock PLM integration synchronizes the latest product configuration data ensuring efficient and accurate production planning and operations.
This shared data includes:
The Rootstock PLM integration is triggered when product related information such as Items, Item Revisions and Bills of Materials are changed via an approved Engineering Change Order (ECO) within Arena. The Rootstock adapter receives the changes, processes them, and takes the product data to create the Rootstock engineering item master, inventory item master, and other detailed product records.
The PLM system revision information is used to create Rootstock engineering item revision records. The engineering change information is also used to create the Rootstock ECO master and detail records. The Rootstock adapter then logs any exceptions. The system administrator is notified of any changes or exceptions, such as revisions of more than 6 characters, unrecognized division or commodity codes, or invalid change numbers.
"Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Integration" is part of the Rootstock Manufacturing and Supply Chain Apps line of products, developed by Rootstock Software.
