Product Lifecycle Intelligence

Turn PLM Data into Insights That improve results

PLI is an evolution of PLM focused on mining insights from product development data that has accumulated within PLM environments and other integrated business systems.

Powered by advanced analytics and machine learning techniques, PLI helps organizations identify patterns, form predictions and prescribe improvements to product development metrics like cycle time, change frequency, rejection rate, quality, performance and manufacturability. 

PLI derives actionable insights from enterprise system data to address core business needs, helping our clients gain understanding, reliably plan and forecast, and continuously improve results.

We offer pre-configured PLI apps to add rapid value, custom app development, and Design for Insights services to clean and prep your data for analytics.

  • Explore current and historical product development performance
  • Explain these performance trends and diagnose root causes
  • Predict future performance based on these observations
  • Prescribe evidence-based recommendations to improve future outcome
