Access & Roles Managment within Product/Part Description area

Scania and R&D needs to manage access to information and business applications scattered across a large number of different systems and provide such access for a fast growing number of users of different character. Therefore it is necessary to apply a common access model to ensure that authorized users get access to the information they need to perform, and that those not authorized are prevented from accessing information they must not be able to access. This to be able to secure that right person access right data information at right way/time.

Applications within PDM/CAD area is used daily by users from R&D, purchasing, market and production to get a comprehensive look of the product structure, engineering change orders, part-information, documentations etc. Dealing with such applications used by many users and from different departments need to have a very flexible and advanced permission/access management and related authorizations model allowing detailed control over what each user can access/view.

CAD/PDM areas is today unfortunately facing a challenging situation with trying to maintain and administrate accesses on the CAD/PDM platform. There is unfortunately at the moment limitations and a lack of control over the usage and distribution of the information in our applications, related archives and folders holds. We also facing issues with defining guidelines on who has legitimate authority to access which information and why. Without a proper management of the roles and related authorizations systems are open to misuse which will lead to potential loss of availability, confidentiality, integrity of systems and information.

We need to be able to assure that all producers and consumers on the CAD/PDM platform globally – not only at R&D, always maintain the correct and sufficient information to be able to work efficiently. The administration of accesses today is unfortunately facing a lack of time-wasting but it is also handled inaccurate.
