PLM to the Rescue for Global Manufacturers

The sheer complexity of managing bills of material (BOMs) in a modern, globalized manufacturing environment leaves the door wide open to errors and inconsistencies that can increase both your costs and your products' time-to-market. Fortunately, riding to the rescue is product lifecycle management (PLM), designed to accurately and efficiently manage BOMs through the complex channels of engineering design teams, offshore suppliers, and remote production facilities. Learn more in today's feature blog post.

ERP is good. But ERP plus PLM is better if you want to reduce data duplication, speed up product development cycles, and improve product turnaround time. In today's feature white paper, you'll learn how the combination of ERP and PLM can enhance your overall process of getting new products to market, and help give you a competitive edge in difficult economic times.

While the ability to leverage globalization, outsourcing, and Web-based collaboration technologies has created tremendous growth opportunities for manufacturers, it has also created a whole host of logistical problems and competitive pressures. For a look at the history of global product development, and the role PLM plays in helping manufacturers meet the challenges of the new global marketplace, check out today's feature article.
