Export Control (ITAR/EAR)

ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) are both United States Government export control regulations intended to ensure that defense related technologies are not shared with the wrong individuals or companies.

The ability to comply with these often complex and ever evolving regulations present companies with both business and IT challenges that PLM can address.  The drive to shorten product development cycles requires accelerated collaboration which can often increase the risk of violations.

PLM can address ITAR and EAR by automating controls and utilizing audit trails related to all aspects of the product design, development and manufacturing processes to prevent potential costly delays and penalties.  Essig PLM assists companies by providing software solutions and deployment methodologies leveraging the following capabilities and features:
