PLM landscapes consist of clusters of applications, platforms and technologies to meet operational needs. Amidst changing business dynamics, it is critical that IT departments have a holistic perspective of enhancements to these applications, platforms and technologies. The PLM environment is often characterized by complex dependencies. A singular or myopic view of this environment could impact the effectiveness of all PLM applications, leading to unrealized PLM benefits.

The following are examples of problems our customers have experienced. If these sound familiar to you, they could be good indicators that operational improvements would benefit your PLM environment:
  • Loss of valuable time due to inaccurate reports from incorrect data (Poor Data Quality)
  • Delay in release of simple feature modifications (Release Delays)
  • Critical and simple features missed during release, or key elements missing from deployed features (Release Quality)
  • SMEs divert time to testing PLM applications from their core activities (Testing Issues)
  • CAD users spend too much time querying data; Remote users suffer from poor system performance (Poor System Performance)
  • Unsure of whether or when to archive old data; outdated data limiting global collaborations (Management of Historic Data)
Through consulting and application of PLM best practices, Geometric’s optimization services unearth issues that are unknown or considered trivial from a holistic perspective. Customers who have utilized our optimization services have realized increases in operational effectiveness of up to 20%, in terms of optimized time and data quality.
