Tutorials, Strategies, & Thoughts on PLM

Make Environmental Compliance Part of Product Development
To stay competitive in today’s market, many manufacturers’ list environmental compliance and product sustainability as key elements for success. To support your environmental compliance objectives, you need a sustainability framework built on a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) foundation that allows you to phase-out non-sustainable components and materials, and design-in new and innovative ’green’ alternatives.

PLM technology is designed to address these challenges by providing the ability to manage complex BOMs and frequent product changes with tracking and reporting of environmental compliance data and documentation. In addition, PLM systems give engineers visibility to make informed decisions with direct access to online content providers that supply compliance information on millions of parts. Because PLM associates all of this information to a single product record it is easy to aggregate the data for compliance reporting…

PLM, Augmented Reality Sharpen the Cutting Edge
Elite Aerospace Group (EAP) is ready to embrace the IoT. Using PTC’s ThingWorx dashboard to connect and monitor machine tools, when foremen check on machines they will see real-time status displayed on every machine. As assemblers build products, data will reduce assembly time and prevent errors. When quality inspectors check a product, instead of marking a drawing as they take measurements, they will see the measurements overlaid and use them to create digital quality reports. The data collected via the IoT and displayed in AR will allow for better products, fewer schedule disruptions, higher quality and a more reliable supply chain…
