Optimize your product lifecycle

Customers demand innovative and sustainable products, produced at a premium quality, with a quick time to market. How can you rapidly develop and deliver top-notch products while smoothly navigating a range of process complexities?

Use product lifecycle management (PLM) software to connect teams, data and processes so you can tackle product development complexity easier, faster and at scale.

As reported by Lifecycle Insights:

59%

59% of companies report that product development complexity is increasing.

53%

53% of companies identify satisfying target requirements as a primary issue.

46%

46% of companies see fewer than six in ten of their product development projects meet their launch or delivery deadlines.

How can PLM on the cloud help you deliver innovative, high-quality products, while keeping costs reasonable and ensuring a fast return on investment?

Implement a PLM solution to build a data and collaboration system that will enable your entire organization to work as a single team, in real time, with one source of truth: from design to prototyping to testing to manufacturing and beyond.

What can PLM software do for you?

PLM is an information management system. It integrates data, processes and business systems throughout the entire product lifecycle.

With PLM software, you can reduce time to market, improve quality and sustainability, increase efficiency and reduce costs by making more informed decisions.

Frequently asked questions

What is PLM software and how is it used in the manufacturing industry?

PLM software integrates data, people, processes and diverse software applications. It connects siloed, disconnected systems, acting as a single source of truth. With PLM software, users can efficiently and cost-effectively manage information throughout the entire product lifecycle.

PLM software helps manufacturing companies accelerate innovation from concept through production. For many manufacturing companies, product and process knowledge is spread across multiple systems, databases and desktops. A secure but accessible PLM system can be used from multiple applications by diverse teams, allowing everyone to access the most up-to-date data.

Why should my company use PLM software for production?

Whether you are in discrete or process manufacturing, the complexity of product development is increasing with customer requirements for sustainable, premium-quality products that are compliant with stringent regulatory standards.

Only a comprehensive PLM solution can integrate your teams, data and processes to streamline product development and help you manage and overcome these complexities.

PLM solutions offer a single source of truth in every organization that ensures a single, accurate product definition — resulting in enhanced collaboration, improved time-to-market, cost savings, and better quality control. With a PLM solution in place, you are empowered to accelerate innovation across departments and disciplines faster and at scale.

How does PLM software improve collaborative engineering?

PLM software improves collaborative engineering by aligning manufacturing, engineering and other key domains to increase product quality. It enables you to share and reuse product data to streamline processes and improve workflow efficiencies. All information is connected and accessible to everyone in the organization, so globally distributed teams can be sure they’re working with the most up-to-date data – enabling them to reduce time and errors while increasing productivity.

How do PLM tools help streamline product design?

PLM tools help streamline product design by standardizing and automating processes for faster turnaround. With a PLM solution, you can streamline and reuse previous configurations and bill of materials (BOM) to manage multiple orders at the same time. They provide improved traceability from product definition documents through CAD models, which speeds up the process of implementing customer changes and reduces engineering rework.
