McLaren Software, a leading independent software vendor specializing in engineering content management applications, announced the immediate availability of its Enterprise Engineer 3.1 release for the FileNet P8 platform. FileNet is the leading provider of Enterprise Content and Business Process Management solutions.
Enterprise Engineer 3.1 includes a number of new features to improve the user experience and provide advanced workflow capabilities for managing the engineering business process.
Major features added in Enterprise Engineer 3.1 include:
- An Explorer Client that allows users to search, browse and manage engineering information from their Windows desktop.
- Workpacks that allow users to package information and send it through workflows.
- A batch import tool that allows engineering information to be stored in the FileNet P8 repository without loosing the relationships with other referenced content.
McLaren is also releasing Enterprise Engineer Review, a component of Enterprise Engineer, that will allow users to redline and mark-up engineering information and then store these change requests in FileNet's P8 repository. Enterprise Engineer Review marks a significant step forward in the way the engineering change process is managed, shifting from the simple viewing of information to the management of the review process and the timely and controlled update of this information.
