Over the past month and a half I have visited with six organizations that are currently implementing product lifecycle management software (PLM). While they are in different industries with different motivations and are implementing solutions from different software providers, all of them are large, global firms with distributed product development and engineering functions.
There are a dizzying array of software solutions on the market that claim to bolster innovation. As a Chief Innovation Officer you are likely to be bombarded with sales pitches from solution providers large and small. While it is difficult to know the players without a program, highly functional digital infrastructures are crucial to enabling innovation in large, global enterprises.
The PLM software market continues to evolve, offering powerful new capabilities, cross-functional value and competitive differentiation. To take advantage of these benefits, companies must also evolve. Here's how to get started.
With the semiconductor industry’s daunting design challenges, accelerated lifecycles, and complex supply chains, it is no wonder that product launch dates, development budgets, and quality targets are frequently missed. To help understand the industry challenges and possible solutions, Kalypso examined the product innovation, design and launch processes of more than 25 leading global semiconductor companies. This paper reveals the results.
Maybe the collective corporate hangover from large-scale investments in information systems is starting to fade. The results of recent Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) benchmark reports demonstrate that some companies are getting over their hangovers faster than others – and have learned a few lessons along the way.
