Automating a bad or inefficient process simply gets you to poor end results faster. Implementing a PLM system merely as an IT project, without first knowing the business goals and optimizing the underlying processes, will never deliver the return on the investment that an organization requires. Significant investments are made in PLM to support the increasing challenges of modern day product development. However, many PLM programs are initiated without an alignment of business, process and technology, thus creating value gaps even before any software is deployed.
- Implementations that fail to support corporate goals and strategies
- Inflexible and complex PLM IT landscapes that are unresponsive to changing business demands and inhibit the vision of unified product development
- Inefficient management of a company’s products from ideation, through production, to retirement and disposal
