To drive product innovation and maintain competitive advantage, organizations need to integrate diverse set of enterprise systems with their Agile PLM. These integrations ensure smooth data flow across the organization and enable manufacturers to reduce time to market. One of the enterprise systems that improves employee productivity is LMS (Learning Management System). LMS integration offers valuable and relevant training to empower employees and enhances their productivity with focused training and learning modules.
Here are two reasons why employee training is important for organizations:
Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
Manufacturers need to train employees to get approval from regulatory authorities. Non-compliance can result in operational delays and even hefty fines. Therefore, organizations need a reliable system to ensure seamless employee trainings and management of training records.
Building a Necessary Skill Set
Without training, a normal operation can require a lot of time. It can also increase the chances of errors, incur additional costs, and cause product delays. Timely employee training ensures smooth flow of operations and frees up valuable time to drive product innovation.
Benefits of Integrating with Agile PLM
Integrating your LMS with PLM can speed up operations and improve collaboration across the organization in these ways:
Capturing Training Plans and History
Employee training has several prerequisites and is a fairly lengthy procedure. Therefore, managers need to sort training plans for individual employees. This can be done by defining training profiles that align with job descriptions or roles of the employees.
Once these training profiles have been created, managers can assign them to individual employees. They can then track the training progress against these profiles and send updates.
By integrating LMS with Agile PLM, managers can easily define these profiles in PLM.
They also don’t have to worry about maintaining training data uniformity across systems.
Capturing Training Requirements in Real Time
Whenever a new training document is ready to be released, the system should enforce that all related employees are trained on the new document before it is actually released. Once all employees are trained, then the system can release a new document and make it accessible for everyone.
Document change management processes in Agile PLM solution should be enhanced to ensure that necessary training has been identified and executed before a new document is released. This is achieved by integrating Agile PLM with LMS so it can enhance workflows to capture training before the document is released.
Integrating Through xEngine
Agile PLM integration with LMS is key to improve collaboration, uphold product quality, reduce errors, and meet customer expectations.
Integrations require a lot of rework, cross-domain communication, and employee support. The inability to migrate the required information rapidly results in premature activation of core processes, leading to dysfunction and delays. A system particularly designed to manage these integrations is the solution.
Xavor’s integration solution, xEngine, provides quick, efficient, and seamless end-to-end integration.
With its wide range of adapters, it supports dynamic mappings and data transformations based on complex business rules. In addition to this, it can be customized as per your specific needs so that you can effectively integrate your LMS and ensure timely and productive employee trainings.
Many companies have implemented an LMS system with very rich functionality to define, execute, manage, and report on training. However, such documents are usually managed in an Agile PLM system. This necessitates syncing with new or updated documents in Agile with LMS integration as soon as they are ready for training.
Xavor offers a suite of solutions including ETR and xEngine within the Agile PLM space to streamline employee training processes. These innovative solutions address your specific business needs by allowing you to choose from multiple adapters and ensuring rapid, smooth, and secure integration.
