Kalypso Launches Rapid Deployment PLM Solution for Semiconductor Industry

December 06, 2012

Beachwood, OHIO - Kalypso, the world’s premier innovation consulting firm, today announced the launch of PLM Vivo for Semiconductor, a pre-configured product lifecycle management (PLM) solution designed explicitly for rapid implementation in the semiconductor industry.

Implementing a PLM system can be a complex journey for any organization, and successful deployments hinge on delivering a total PLM solution that combines business value, organizational change and technology.

“Kalypso’s PLM Vivo solutions give organizations across a variety of industries a structured framework that allow for rapid PLM implementations, while simultaneously reducing the risk and cost when compared to a traditional PLM delivery,” said Horst Groesser, Kalypso partner.

PLM Vivo for Semiconductor is built on Oracle’s Agile PLM application and enables semiconductor companies to go live with their PLM solution in as little as 16 weeks. In addition to reducing setup time, PLM Vivo enables a more structured design control process by utilizing leading semiconductor data modeling and workflow practices. The reduced demands on time and resources allow semiconductor companies to gain PLM benefits faster than ever before.

“PLM solutions for semiconductor companies can increase collaboration and facilitate improved product quality, but many semiconductor companies are weary of investing the time and resources that were traditionally necessary for an effective PLM implementation,” said Kalypso director Joe Dury. “With our new PLM Vivo solution, semiconductor companies will be able to quickly reap the benefits of PLM with reduced investments in time, dollars and resources."

PLM Vivo for Semiconductor is configured based on best-in-class implementation practices specific to the industry. Pre-defined deliverables include architecture plan, security model, functional and systems specification documents, and training materials which help to accelerate the implementation and organizational knowledge transfer.

Kalypso is a Gold level member of the Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN) and has achieved the Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialization for Agile Product Lifecycle Management.
