Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help your company keep up with the increasing complexity of developing today’s high-tech products. While smaller companies may use relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger companies rely on full-featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global supply chains. Mid-size companies can feel stuck because PDM is too basic, but PLM feels out of reach.
This resource will help you:
• Recognize why “simple” solutions fall short and do not support your capabilities
• Better connect to customers and the supply chain
• Drive higher product development speed
• Get started with the right PLM solution
Midsize manufacturers need a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. So, what’s the right size PLM to fit a midsized high-tech company? Download this resource and take a look.
There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
Obtaining a first-mover competitive advantage or faster time-to-market requires a new wave in analytics. Dassault Systèmes remains a leading innovator in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and has invested heavily in analytical technologies to further drive business benefits for its customers in the related areas of planning, simulation, insight and optimization.
This white paper examines the challenges peculiar to PLM and why Dassault Systèmes’ EXALEAD offers the most appropriate solution. It also clearly positions EXALEAD PLM Analytics alongside related technologies like BI, data-warehousing and Big Data solutions.
Understand and implement PLM Analytics to access actionable information, support accurate decision-making, and drive performance.
Project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results, however many companies still lack forward-looking capabilities to predict project outcomes and ensure success. Enhancing project management with PLM analytics offers the opportunity to switch from task-based activities to performance-driven ones to improve success rates.
Use PLM Analytics to:
• Gain actionable insight and valuable intelligence
• Dramatically boost business value and improve project management performance
• Reduce error-prone behavior like manual data collection
• Leverage big-data capabilities and project intelligence
Learn how to extend the value of your PLM investment and improve business performance for your company.
The concept of a virtual, digital equivalent to a physical product or the Digital Twin was introduced in 2003 at a University of Michigan Executive Course on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) taught by Dr. Michael Grieves. In light of these advances, it is timely to explore how the Digital Twin can move from an interesting and potentially useful concept that aids in understanding the relationship between a physical product and its underlying information to a critical component of an enterprise-wide closed-loop product lifecycle.
Understand how focusing on the connection between physical product and virtual product will improve productivity, uniformity of production, and ensure the highest quality products.
This spotlight report examines:
• How Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) or Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are key enablers of data management and Digital Transformation. Companies can combine many other opportunities with manufacturing operations in a digital journey.
• Product lifecycle management (PLM) as a high-value discipline to pair with MOM in discrete manufacturing, and the value of digital continuity across engineering, manufacturing operations, and supply chain.
• A robust integration of MOM and PLM technologies and the advent of the Digital Twin (a virtual copy of the product and how it's made) to demonstrate maturity in Smart Manufacturing and the ability to make smart products in smart factories.
The IIoT has opened up a world of opportunity for manufacturers. Take advantage of it.
Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
Aerospace and Defense companies delivering complex products in competitive markets must overcome many challenges to manage requirements throughout the product lifecycle. Among the most difficult challenges are integrating complex systems engineering processes, promoting collaboration among multiple engineering disciplines and enabling the sharing of intellectual property within globally dispersed teams.
Companies seeking a way to efficiently manage product requirements can leverage a comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to:
• Effectively reuse intellectual property to reduce time to market
• Increase product innovation
• Improve overall traceability of requirements throughout the product lifecycle
This paper will highlight the criteria needed for a comprehensive requirements management solution that incorporates PLM to offer customers a scalable, enterprise-grade solution.
A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
