PLM Coming of Age: ERP Vendors Take Notice
With a PLM solution in place, a company has the ability to automate, monitor, and track product development and revision processes with their customers

cad vendors  Epicor provides integration with CAD systems, leveraging domain expertise and technology from German company PROCAD . Epicor appears to be avoiding the most common pitfall that many ERP vendors face with PLM: by providing a more flexible environment for product innovation than for the standard ERP environment that is focused more on transactional control.

What's Wrong With Enterprise Applications, And What Are Vendors Doing About It? Part Three: A New Approach and User Recommendations


Despite the user preference for a single, 'one-stop shop' vendor, componentized software products, interoperability standards and Internet technology will lead to fewer large-scale projects and an ongoing stream of smaller ones, all with tangible return on investment (ROI) rationale. Although not necessarily a panacea, what makes Model Based Architecture different is that it is practical approach, which is changing some of the basic rules and paradigms of software development.

cad vendors  are thus like manufacturing CAD systems helping with development but not across the lifecycle. The new enterprise applications architects should, therefore, learn from PLM and take an integrated, lifecycle view of the effort, possibly by observing Ramco's approach. Model Based Architecture is an application development framework that allows software applications to be described in terms of what they must do (i.e., the business view of the software) rather than how they must do it (i.e., the technical Read More

PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development -- Part 2: Dassault Systèmes


Part 1 of this blog post series discussed in general the relationship between product lifecycle management (PLM) and lean product development (LPD), and pointed out that various PLM vendors may have different interpretations of PLM functionality, as well as different levels of support for users’ LPD initiatives. In this and a few future blog posts, I will choose some PLM vendors and talk about the

As one of the first PLM vendors to start talking about LPD, DS has created some interesting content on this topic through its Web site. But I will leave the exploration of that to you and now discuss two of DS’s more recent involvements—which, at first glance, may not seem to some people to be directly relevant to LPD.

PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development-Part 4: PTC


If you have followed my previous posts of this blog series (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), I guess you may have an idea about who will be the third vendor I’m going to discuss concerning the relevance between its product lifecycle management (PLM) offerings and the lean product development (LPD) concept.
