Within the formula management process, ProductVision’s Workflow feature dramatically simplifies the execution and tracking of workflows commonly encountered in product development. This may include new product development, reformulation projects, competitive analysis studies and raw material replacement projects.
The Workflow feature allows you to create workflows for any ProductVision object, including raw materials, formulas, and projects. You may make as many workflows as necessary to meet your current Product development needs. For example, your formula approval processes may vary by location, with different people involved in the process. In this case, you can set up individual raw material approval processes everywhere they are required.
Participants in an approval process are notified when action is required. The Task or email notification can specify the action desired and include attachments such as item reports, Excel spreadsheets and Word documents.
The ProductVision Workflow module allows you to integrate and optimize your business processes, providing increased efficiency and accountability during product development.
Using ProductVision Tasks and your organization’s email system, all participants in the approval process are actively involved, speeding up the product development process. Workflow guarantees that the routing will be sent to the right individuals for action, based upon your business rules. This ensures that tasks do not fall through the cracks and paperwork associated with the process is eliminated.
