Gain manufacturing efficiencies with PLM

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.

Drive excellence with PLM for manufacturing

By enabling collaboration with PLM, you create associative, traceable manufacturing BOMs that are derived from engineering data. With the right process plans and work instructions, plants can accelerate time to production, minimize disruptions, reduce line failures and improve manufacturing output.
