PRODUCT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT

We optimize all stages of the product management process.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a tool that allows you to manage all product-related information: its development, industrialization, production start-up, including supply chain elements, for an adequate exchange of information with suppliers involved in the production process.

Our value propotition:  

  1. Ability to bring best practices across industries 
  2. Independence from software vendors 
  3. Use of standardized methodologies, sharing of approaches 
  4. Flexible and proactive approach to the Client and its needs 
  5. A Team of specialist consultants

Among the services we offer are:

Our expert services are divided into:

PLM helps with all strategic processes, as it steers the company from a Data Driven to a Process Driven model, standardizing workflows such as change management, product configuration and any other sub-process associated with the product development cycle.

PLM may thus be considered as the backbone for product-related information, and as such must be able to integrate with business systems such as

  • CRM, to collect the main product requirements from the market
  • SRM, to foster the exchange of technical and product information with suppliers
  • CAD/E/M, FEM/A and Dynamic Simulation, for design and for static and dynamic product simulation
  • ERP, to facilitate the industrialization and production process
  • ALM, to optimize profits for the management of product-related services
