Graphical workflows and alerts

Using Infor PLM Accelerate, you’ll be able to fully manage the configuration of a product or system by using graphical online business process workflows. These workflows feature email notifications and reminders for identification, control, and more, so that you can fully run your hierarchical sets of information.

Governance, risk, and compliance

Seamlessly manage risk, improve quality, and attain environmental, regulatory, safety, medical, and other forms of compliance via failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) processes for TS/16949, AS9100, FDA QSR, and more.

Content creation

Provide component content for topics-based, modular documentation. You can allow users of various disciplines to author, visualize, share, and publish information within an open environment that fosters teamwork.

Streamline approval processes

Effectively manage approvals by taking charge over the lifecycle of parts, including automated workflows and permissions. Take advantage of additional functionality—like automatically maintained links to CAD models, drawings, and documents—to streamline the processes and drive even greater efficiency.

Unhindered visibility

See everything that you need to see in the change status of a product or system. Change histories are automatically captured, providing upstream and downstream traceability for a complete look at the implementation of upgrades in a system.

Defined benchmarks

Create a single, multidiscipline requirements hierarchy for managing complex engineering systems, including planning, development, and realization. Through Infor PLM Accelerate, your requirements will stay in sync as a system or product evolves.

User access controls

Allow users across multiple teams and locations to access critical information required for projects. Have the ability to author, visualize, share, and publish information—all within a central, controlled, and collaborative environment.

Product design

Manage the lifecycle of complex multidisciplinary products from requirements through development, manufacturing, and support. With Infor PLM Accelerate, you’ll be able to achieve systems-level product design, such as functional blocks and model-based design, through cross-discipline and cross-functional team collaboration.

Development acceleration

Gain control of your day-to-day product development discussions by being able to easily and securely view and comment on parts and documents. You can graphically comment on and add relevant context to all file content, including 3D models, drawings, and Microsoft Office documents.
