Industry Leading THOUGHTS ON Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
As products and the product development process grow more complex, engineers find themselves pulled in many directions. Simply put, engineers are less productive these days – and mind you, it’s at no fault of their own. Here are the main three reasons why this is happening – and why the right-sized product data management (PDM) system is the best solution to these challenges…
I recently revisited a blog I wrote several years back touting the capabilities and benefits of enabling engineering organizations to collaborate with the rest of the enterprise. I even coined a term for certain platforms that give companies the potential to go beyond just information sharing to a more interactive form of communication. Recent developments around IoT and medical device quality make this form of collaboration even more vital for optimized product development. Most companies still operate with a limited form of integration to their engineering organizations. To fully leverage today’s PLM and IoT solutions, it is vital that engineering is completely integrated into the enterprise…
