PLM Company Named Product Design Automation Category Winner for Implementation at Terrafugia

“We are extremely happy that Omnify Software has been recognized yet again for this award,” stated Jack Rowntree, COO of Omnify Software

Omnify Software, a leading provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for electronic, medical, mechanical, and defense manufacturers, today announces that it has received, for the third year in a row, the Kinetic Process Innovation Award for excellence in the Product Design Automation category. Now in its seventeenth year, the Kinetic Process Innovation Awards honors companies whose technology has made a significant contribution to supporting business growth and achievement for their customers.

Omnify Software was selected as the Product Design Automation category winner for their PLM application at Terrafugia, a growing aerospace company that designs and manufactures revolutionary "flying cars". Terrafugia implemented the Omnify Empower solution to manage their complex Parts List/Bill of Materials (BOMs) for FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) compliance. FAA regulations require demonstration of line item compliance for past and newly accepted standards. In addition, all Terrafugia vehicles are custom ordered therefore each build is a variant of a Parent BOM.

Terrafugia had maintained automotive and aviation specifications in large manuals and tracked BOMs in Excel spreadsheets prior to implementing Omnify Empower. The robust BOM and revision management capabilities of Empower PLM allow Terrafugia to electronically track old and new production vehicle information in a central location and with associations. This provides improved visibility into the BOM and better design control.

"Numerous cutting edge applications were submitted this year and as in past years, with the wide range of technologies represented, the judges found it particularly challenging to make their final selections,” said Drew Barrows, Deputy Editor of High Tech Views. “Omnify Software was again selected as a winner in the Product Design Automation category because the company continues to demonstrate their focus on solutions that increase product design efficiencies and provide valuable ROI for their customers.”

“We are extremely happy that Omnify Software has been recognized yet again for this award,” stated Jack Rowntree, COO for Omnify Software. “Customers like Terrafugia are a perfect example of a growing manufacturing company in a highly regulated industry that adopted our technology early on in order support product development best practices and continuously deliver innovative, compliant and safe products to the market.”
