An Overview of Product Lifecycle Management Implementation Challenges


Product lifecycle management (PLM) implementation brings its own set of challenges, whether considering vendor selection, employee perception management, or actual implementation. However, based on experience and study, it is possible to describe the best practices for overcoming these challenges.

new product development cost calculation  it takes to introduce new models in a number of ways. Product engineers can dramatically shorten the cycle of implementing and approving engineering changes across an extended and globally dispersed design chain (covering suppliers, customers, and senior manufacturing and senior design engineers) which can access all data through a web-based PLM system. Procurement divisions can work more effectively with suppliers to reuse parts. Thus, the product can be manufactured faster, paving the way for capturing Read More

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

new product development cost calculation  for custom reports tapping new data sources   Developing the logical model is the central task in any business intelligence implementation, so all approaches require this step and it is, by its nature, labor intensive. However, this high-value exercise is dwarfed by the labor required to accomplish the other steps in the deployment. That the other primary tasks are disproportionately expensive is due to the fragmented architecture of traditional BI solutions - many of which are comprised of several Read More

Understanding the True Cost of Sourcing


In today's twenty-first century, global outsourced business world, the traditional and somewhat simplistic approaches used to measure cost for sourcing decisions of direct materials fall short.

new product development cost calculation  example, even if the new approach showed a 1 percent increase in Totals Sourcing Cost in the mid range (currently 2.4 percent better), the fact that it was 11.8 percent better in the low range (because it reduced the inventory write-offs from $346k to $234k [USD]) and 4 percent better in the high range (because it reduced shortages from 2.8 percent to 0.5 percent) may make the second approach preferable. Second, while performance along the mid-range may look pretty reasonable on inventory and shortage Read More
