PLM Tools – Central backbone for your product data
Demanding customers, volatility and global competition characterize today’s market environment. Digital solutions are a key success factor to continue to offer complex products with a potentially high variance at a competitive price in the future.
Modern PLM solutions offer you the possibility to map the complexity of your products in a targeted, efficient and value stream-oriented way, e.g., through BoM management, variant- and configuration management.
PLM solutions are increasingly becoming an indispensable success factor in the industry – seamlessly synchronized data and process are required to turn your product knowledge into business value.
The tool is only part of the solution
The selection of a PLM software is a long-term decision with far-reaching consequences – A precise idea of your business strategy and digitalization needs to be defined in advance in order to implement the right scope of solutions.
Due to its role as a central “backbone” for product data, the PLM system needs interfaces to authoring systems as well as downstream systems. The broad functional scope of most PLM solutions encounters architectures that have evolved over extensive time-periods and may require significant adaptions to ensure compatibility with the PLM-Solution.
Product-centric working methods and increasingly data-driven processes require cross-functional collaboration, high data quality and special process discipline. This paradigm shift puts established ways of working to the test and requires a high degree of willingness to learn and change in your organization.
