PTC understands the diverse challenges faced by today’s leaders of product companies and offers deep expertise to address the full range of a company’s needs.
PLM helps supply chain and manufacturing teams translate the digital product coming from engineering into a physical product and enables rapid, secure supplier collaboration. PLM also helps streamline manufacturing by transforming the eBOM to mBOM, and keeping the two in synch, so that production planning can begin concurrently with design.
PTC has been helping companies for over 25 years to develop great products with its CAD technology and design process expertise. Our solutions can help your organization evolve your product design process to improve time to market, quickly respond to changing customer or market needs, and enhance internal and external design collaboration.
ALM solutions from PTC can translate the voice of the customer into prioritized requirements, targets and constraints while establishing bi-directional traceability between requirements, multi-discipline product designs and downstream product and service data. Our solutions can help your organization ensure what is delivered conforms to what was requested by the customer.
Supply Chain Management solutions allow manufacturers to collaborate across product development, supply chain, and sourcing and procurement, so they can identify an optimal set of parts, materials and suppliers. SCM accelerates the sourcing process through an automated RFx process with detailed cost modeling, and provides visibility into supply chain risk information to balance cost, quality and compliance.
Service Lifecycle Management increases customer value by approaching service as a total lifecycle rather than a set of service functions. PTC’s product-centric SLM solution enables your company to deliver and capture product knowledge at the point of service, continuously optimizing service and product performance.
