Program Portfolio Management for Product Development
Today’s complex products have led to development programs that are now global, multi-discipline and cross-functional. Consequently, project teams are producing an enormous amount of project details, using different tools. For Program Managers assessing program health, it’s a daunting task to coordinate and evaluate this data in preparation for executive reviews. And for product development executives balancing portfolios of product development programs, it is almost impossible to get the right information in a timely manner to make decisions on trade-offs and project selection.
PTC Windchill PPMLink is uniquely designed to meet the Program Portfolio Management (PPM) needs of discrete manufacturers. Because it’s integrated directly with PTC Windchill, program teams get transparent access to accurate product data, without compromising the ‘single source of engineering truth’ provided by Product Data Management (PDM). Built on MS SharePoint Server, it is designed to reach every cross-functional team member in your development process, both inside and outside your organization. Integrated directly with MS Project Server, it extends enterprise-class portfolio analysis, resource management and project management with a program & portfolio metrics engine that aggregates traditional project management KPIs with KPIs derived from your PDM system.
