On production much attention is paid to a problem of the production losses connected, in particular, with excess production, an inefficient waste of time, excess operations of processing and transportation of products, surplus of material stocks, release of defective products. All these losses arise at early stages of life cycle of a product, since a stage of its design. At the initial stages prerequisites for future losses are formed. For example, mistakes in engineering documentation cause marriage release, but not optimum made technological routes result in need of performance of excess production operations.

One of the tools intended for decrease in losses is the control system of life cycle of a product allowing to standardize production operations, to provide collecting necessary data for the analysis of current state of processes and control of losses. Today there is a high interest in systems of this sort. Application allows to achieve essential decrease in costs and product cost.
