You’ll develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and workflows on how to create PN, BOMs, and issue E/C within the PLM system.
You’ll help define the process flow on PN and BOM creation.
You’ll help integrate PLM with other ERP/MRP systems.
You’ll develop and maintain access control groups(read/write/edit/etc) on the PLM system.
