Fusion Lifecycle PLM Features In Depth

Bill of Materials Management

Autodesk provides users with tools for managing, visualizing, and sharing bill of management (BOM) information in real-time. Executives and engineers can quickly access comprehensive data about component parts and assembly productions, and they have complete revision control to ensure that everyone within their organizations is referencing the most updated versions of information at all time.

Autodesk's BOM management system reduces the risk of downstream errors, and decreases instances in which executives have to re-work existing solutions. Autodesk also offers integrated components and product visualization, enabling users to view both 2D and 3D product representations.

Change Management

Organizations that are looking for configurability options can rely on Autodesk's change requests and change order workflows. Formal and fast-track options are available, and both can be configured to meet a business' specific processes.

Manage the process of change requests and change orders in real-time, immediately identifying and resolving bottlenecks before they become problems for your team. Autodesk's change management solution is available within an integrated PLM environment, which means you'll have access to all the details necessary when management changes for product stakeholders.

Quality Management

Time is of the essence when it comes to quality management issues. Autodesk understands this, which is why the company has come up with its own quality management module that connects processes from return authorizations (RMA) to change orders (ECO).

Using a series of standardized processes, you can manage new processes based on the outcomes of previous processes. This system ensures that execution of business process is standardized, and it reduces the risk of expensive errors. Using Autodesk, you can also take corrective and preventative actions (CAPA) to improve understanding about particular processes amongst staffers within your own organization.

Supplier Collaboration

Rather than hunting around for paperwork and supplier information, Autodesk users can reference all of their important documents in one place. Autodesk's supplier information management system is secure, and it includes built-in apps for things like approving manufacturer lists and approving vendor lists.

Time-based supplier review process workflows allow you to track the status of your procurements in real-time, on a 24/7 basis. Stakeholders (including both yourself and your work teams) are notified whenever reviews are due for suppliers, and status updates are widely visible throughout your organization.

The futur of 3D Modeling

2018-02-24

Pros

As a professionnal 3D artist (15years), I think that this software is the futur for 3D Hard surface, sketching.

Cons

This is a cool 3d sketching software, but I think that autodesk should work on making it easier to use it in a, "multi-software" workflow.

Fusion Autodesk best software for manufacturing

2018-02-27

Accelerate additive design and manufacturing

Pros

This software was the most helpful for our engineers to machine, print, inspect and fabricate better parts very fast.

Cons

We just wish their support team was a little bit more available and flexible with time when we ask questions or need any type of help.

Powerful toolset, ease of use improves after a few weeks

2018-07-03

The entire Autodesk Fusion ecosystem enables work and collaboration on rapid prototyping (3D printing, low rate CNC milling and lathe work).

Pros

The available power managing model workflow by integrating it into the Fusion infrastructure is tremendous, and opens new doors for managing collaborative teams.

Cons

The PLM software does a great job of its core function set, and the documentation is good, but the gulf between entry level users and really proficient workflow implementation is pretty massive.

Great Software for creating and printing 3d models

2018-03-13

Pros

Anything you can think of can be accomplished, but it takes a lot of time and skill to figure it out.

Cons

The learning curve for this software is huge. It is quite a bit different than using any other autodesk product. Once you have learned the tricks, it can be useful.

Easy navigation and plenty of tutorials

2018-02-08

I am learning this to get a step up where I am employed.

Pros

I love the rendering and easy layout.

Cons

Some of the editing could be a little easier. Such as editing a stl. file takes a few steps for you to be able to edit.
