Product Lifecycle Management

Print out the product’s successful life story!

PLM stands for Product Lifecycle Management. PLM integrates people, business processes, and IT systems to facilitate product management, starting from new product inception and development, through manufacture, procurement and sales, to use and the end of its lifecycle.

At various stages of the production cycle, PLM supports the creation and management of data, which is always up-to-date, available in a central location and in the appropriate version. PLM connects the virtual and the physical product and enables enhanced monitoring of changes, projects, requirements, thus eliminating the borders between various disciplines, applications, and departments

Take a closer look at what it all involves
product lifecycle management.

Challenge #1

When everyone is in the know, processes take less time

Data inconsistency, unavailability, or duplication – all this is the “stuff of nightmares” for the development and production process. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform facilitates a completely new approach to work processes: it ensures that your data is always up-to-date, provides clearly defined access to relevant data, and eliminates transcription and duplication of data, which do nothing but waste time and increase costs.

Challenge #2

Good teamwork makes everything better

Would you like to know how you can manage your projects easily, and retain control over processes and access to all relevant data? To assign tasks to team members, together with associated documents, with one click? Try out all the features of our project management solution which is based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Challenge #3

Make sure you remain in control of changes – not the other way around!

Being active in the market, you are well aware of the fact that change is practically constant. Make sure that change, for you, means – growth. For this purpose, you need to manage change, not let it take you by surprise and control you.

Make sure you remain in control of changes – not the other way around!

 

Being active in the market, you are well aware of the fact that change is practically constant. Make sure that change, for you, means – growth. For this purpose, you need to manage change, not let it take you by surprise and control you. This is much easier to achieve when you bear in mind the following elements:

  • Successful implementation of change requires a clear insight into its impacts: encompassing everything affected by the change and everything affecting the change.
  • Flexibility and speed are needed, as well as a thoughtful approach. Structured decisions will ensure an integral change implementation.
  • Providing clear insight into all objects involved in the change for everyone participating in the process.
  • The change itself – its causes and effects – must be accessible and clear to all relevant participants throughout the process.
  • There may be multiple parallel or serial changes to objects that affect each other, and this is covered by change management too.

Team communication according to your wishes

 

In the complex development and production process, misunderstandings and delays can cost you a lot of time and even more money.

3DEXPERIENCE Routes provides a simpler, faster, smoother, and clearer notification and approval process.

By adopting the 3DEXPERIENCE Routes, you get the following advantages:

  • a system that puts focus on your product: all relevant data are associated directly with the product, which results in greater traceability, clarity, and fast decision-making
  • flexibility, allowing you to adapt the approval process depending on the complexity of communication and the number of participants involved
  • no more rummaging through stacks of paper: the process is fully digitalized
  • all necessary data, all documents, and all decisions in one place
  • up-to-date and clear data: real-time visual overview
  • if you want to keep using electronic mail, the system can be integrated with MS Outlook for auto-generated e-mails, which will also provide you with accurate and clear data

Communicating via the 3DEXPERIENCE Routes will improve teamwork and accelerate your decision-making process, visibly increasing your competitiveness and readiness to respond to all dynamic market demands before long.

Production that meets your requirements

Trying to please everyone? It’s impossible in real life, you shouldn’t even try, but, when it comes to managing requirements in the complex development and production process, it is desirable and, from now on, significantly easier, and possible!

The requirement specification is the essential starting document for anyone involved in product and process development, testing, prototyping, and manufacturing.

Meeting requirements is a dynamic process that takes place throughout the product lifecycle, involving customer requirements, as well as standards, regulations, and procedures.

Requirement management using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform lowers the costs and reduces the time required for development: work is more transparent, and communication within the team much faster and clearer.

In this way, the overall quality of your business is enhanced.

Try out all the features of our project management solution which is based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Project Management 3DEXPERIENCE is a must-have tool for project managers, but it is also essential for all other project participants, suppliers, partners, and buyers. Namely, for everyone who is actively involved in the project.

Provide access to key information for all departments involved and take control over the project and project deliverables in real-time.

Project managers will not spend their valuable time searching for appropriate documents anymore, they will be able to dedicate themselves to project progress evaluation tasks, risk identification, and even better resource management.

Projects will be completed more quickly, easily, and cost-effectively, and you will always have accurate information.

Simplicity is the secret of success 

Managing complex processes in a clear, simple, and smooth way is the secret of the most successful companies.

Having precise, accurate, and up-to-date information and monitoring all relevant data is key. Products are becoming increasingly complex today due to the need to meet the demands of the market, or maybe even each individual customer, and all requirements need to be managed, from planning to production.

When the flow of knowledge and information is fluid and smooth, everything becomes much simpler, faster, and more profitable.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform integrates and synchronizes the entire process, it opens the information channel to all parties involved in the process and supports a much greater product assortment variety at the same time.

In this way, the process of managing products becomes incomparably simpler, quicker, and ultimately more profitable for the company as a whole.

The company retains its agility in planning and making important decisions, regardless of the number of people, teams, and departments involved, thus gaining an important advantage over the competition.

Top managers agree on the formula of success: Work smart, not hard!

Data inconsistency, unavailability, or duplication – all this is the “stuff of nightmares” for the development and production process.
