PLM for Manufacturing: Enable Collaboration and Alignment With Engineering

Access a continuous flow of product data and work concurrently with design using PLM for manufacturing

Gain manufacturing efficiencies with PLM

null

If you’re like most manufacturing leaders, your company’s success depends on your ability to digitally transform operational processes and teams. This becomes close to impossible if you’re using complex or manual data management practices. How do you decrease time to production if constantly faced with rework? How do you reduce operating costs if burdened with excessive scrap and labor?

The key is to provide a seamless flow of real-time, accurate information between engineering and manufacturing, enabling teams to work concurrently. The result? Higher quality products get to market faster.

Watch the video from Groupe Beneteau for a real-world example of PLM for manufacturing success.
