With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are
attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously
out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics
to create competitive advantage within their markets, often
focusing on building a thorough understanding of their
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
Project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results, however many companies still lack forward-looking capabilities to predict project outcomes and ensure success. Enhancing project management with PLM analytics offers the opportunity to switch from task-based activities to performance-driven ones to improve success rates.
Use PLM Analytics to:
• Gain actionable insight and valuable intelligence
• Dramatically boost business value and improve project management performance
• Reduce error-prone behavior like manual data collection
• Leverage big-data capabilities and project intelligence
Learn how to extend the value of your PLM investment and improve business performance for your company.
There is a large gap between understanding how important project management is to a successful product launch and how effective a company may be with its actual execution. John Hayes, CEO of Engineering.com, and Jon Gable, former Strategic Planning Director for Dassault Systèmes , team up to bring you a webinar on product development and project management tools.
This webinar covers:
• Research report findings from 140 product development professionals
• Analysis of how product development issues can be addressed
• Web-based project management for product development
Gain insight into the latest thinking on project management for product development and how project management issues can impact business at the highest level.
Jim Brown, President of Tech-Clarity, explores how fast growing, midsized, High-Tech manufacturing companies can accelerate their time-to-market by streamlining their engineering and business processes on a unified platform.
Watch the 20-min webinar and learn:
• How a unified platform accelerates collaboration between all stakeholders of product development
• How the principle of ‘invisible governance’ helps engineering teams save time on unnecessary reporting and administration
• How online collaboration helps build customer intimacy and validate product ideas early and effectively
• How modern, secure social collaboration platforms can smoothly transition to structured product development
Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
