PLM Implementation

The proven PLM Implementation methodology identifies and applies the tools necessary to accelerate productivity in the company’s product development process, from idea to market.

With the right PLM implementation strategy, businesses have the opportunity to not only enhance their product development capabilities, but also realize the full potential of PLM technology

Many businesses face similar challenges, including:

  • Providing high quality products to the market
  • Improving product visibility across the organization
  • Centralized product record for easy access across multiple geographical locations

PointPLM delivers an approach that combines process and technology improvements with PLM Implementation – a methodology that emphasizes the identification and use of the right tools to accelerate productivity in product development.

This may include:

  • The implementation of PLM across the enterprise – this can help reduce multiple instances of data held across different locations into one, integrated repository for product development
  • Employee training for in-house implementation of the PLM system
  • Reduced cycle time for product approval for faster speed-to-market

Phased PLM Implementation

Many enterprises may opt for step-by-step PLM rollout sequence to maximize returns while mitigating the risks. That said, the success of any implementation process generally requires:

  • Clear mandate
  • Transparent governance
  • Controlled scope
  • Industry best practices
  • Simple start with added functionality in stages

The typical stages of PLM Implementation include:

This involves:

  • Understanding of key benefits and metrics
  • Risk identification and mitigation
  • Review of existing processes
  • Deployment strategy and communications plan

This phase may include:

  • PLM schema design
  • Data migration
  • Customization design, development, and configuration

Beyond data migration, you should expect:

  • PLM configuration & schema modeling
  • Customization development

This phase includes multiple tests for smooth implementation, including:

  • Integration testing
  • System testing
  • Production
  • User acceptance testing
  • Go-live
  • System integration components testing
  • Custom process testing and validation

Every implementation strategy requires ongoing support and maintenance for short-term and long-term success.
