Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Architecture & Integration
Now, more than ever, PLM architecture and integration is a key enabler for companies that want to better manage their product development processes. A simplified PLM environment can help companies to speed time-to-market, increase product quality, and reduce product development costs. Both architecture and integration matter, and you should use them to your advantage.
Most fully functional PLM architectures today consist of multi-vendor solutions. You may be need to integrate multiple PLM vendors, or you may need to integrate PLM with various Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and other solutions that span the enterprise value chain.
By starting with a well-defined PLM architecture, you can drive greater usage adoption if you take steps to ensure that users do not have to navigate multiple systems to get needed information. You can leverage openness, interoperability and strategic integration to increase the effectiveness of your PLM investment.
At Kalypso, we have worked on hundreds of PLM architecture and integration projects with companies of all sizes around the world. We have worked with companies on creating and implementing a strategic, scalable PLM architecture that will allow companies to better manage product development processes, easily manage integration points, and improve enterprise collaboration and communication.
Our team of skilled consultants has in-the-trenches experience, so we are not guessing at the right answers. We know what will work and what won't when it comes to integrating PLM with any leading CAD, ERP or SCM solution. Moreover, we are familiar with the potential integration points that a client may need.
Drawing on our first-hand experience of what has worked for companies, we can help you to create an architecture and integration roadmap to improve PLM processes, speed planning steps, enhance quality and make product information more easily available across systems to improve business agility.
