Use CMMS to Improve PdM Performance


Companies that have moved from a highly reactive environment to a more planned one notice significant improvement. A computer maintenance management system (CMMS) or an enterprise asset management (EAM) is a useful tool to create a planned environment, help build accurate equipment history, and develop comprehensive analysis capability.

The discussions often come disguised in modern-day labels, such as lean, reliability-centered maintenance (RCM), and total productive maintenance (TPM). However, there's no mistaking the underlying issues: companies need Read More

Process ERP vs. Discrete ERP Differentiation


People often ask us "what's the difference between process and discrete ERP?" We model both systems in such a way that they share many common components, nevertheless process manufacturing industries have unique requirements that differ from discrete manufacturing industries.

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 4 - Comparing 3 Vendors


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. In this part of the article we review 3 vendors who offer products to the PLM market - IDe, Thetis, and PDMware - as a demonstration that selecting the appropriate solution is highly dependant on the prioritized needs of the business.

pdm lighting  related functions such as PDM and design tools become less important. This indicates that those clients whose businesses rely heavily on managing the new product development and commercialization processes, but don't require strong engineering and PDM tools, will want to be sure to include IDe in their technology selection. The graph below indicates the contribution to the weighted average for each vendor across the high level categories with IDe's priorities. Figure 15 click here to enlarge The Read More
