You can count on personalized support around the clock by email, live chat, or by joining a live webinar.

What will you specifically review during the Functional Group Assessment?

A Functional Group Assessment (FGA) focuses on all aspects of Creo and Windchill applications. We review how one or two of your power users are utilizing these tools. Typically this takes a few hours to a full day.

Will you still interview other people, or will it just be the over-the-shoulder sessions?

Yes. We can interview others to get a better idea of how they are utilizing the systems. This would take place during the typical one-hour interview sessions. 

What if I only want to focus on one specific area with this assessment?

We offer a variety of assessments – each type can be tailored to cover what your organization needs specifically. Please read through the outlines of our assessments to find out which one might best fit your needs. If you are not sure, contact us. We would be glad to help determine how we can best help your organization.

What areas can the assessment cover at our business?

We can assess your business processes end-to-end. We interview any stakeholders involved with product development, whether they contribute to or consume your product data.

Are we required to buy from you once the assessment is complete?

No. We intentionally position these assessments as a standalone. You can choose to execute our recommendations any way you would like. However, we are confident that partnering with EAC will bring you the results that our experts recommend for the future of your product development.
