yet another plm  another Case for Industry-Specific Solutions Technology is changing at a breakneck pace, and is there anyone out there who will debate me on that issue? The undeniable evidence that I am getting old is the fact that I got my engineering degree in the late 1980s. Imagine how much easier my studies would have been then had only the Internet,  word processors , Wikipedia ,  presentation software ,  multimedia  products, etc., been available?

Siemens PLM Tackles Product Costing




yet another plm  it: Siemens PLM bought yet another code base. Some might recall Jim Heppelmann, PTC’s CEO, facetiously saying a few years back on a PTC earnings call, “(Siemens) Teamcente r has no center.” The irony is that the same is increasingly true for Windchill PLM and other over-engineered PLM systems built upon several acquisitions of product on disparate technologies. Somewhat resembling Workday in the Tier 1 ERP space, one should watch Aras Corp as a younger open-source PLM provider with a new Read More

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, suppliers, and employees amid the increasing pressures of mass customization, globalization, regulatory compliance, outsourcing, and product accountability, which are just some market driving forces.

However the future for stand-alone PLM niche providers that fail to differentiate their value to the market is dubious.

ERP Vendors Are Taking Notice A number of ERP vendors are making their way into the PLM market by bundling or partnering strategically Read More

SAP PLM: Outlook and Predictions


This year, product lifecycle management (PLM) vendors have put many interesting initiatives on display to PLM buyers. These initiatives include the possibility of generating more synergies between enterprise search and PLM, more intuitive decision support in design and engineering, connectivity between direct modeling and history-based modeling in computer-aided design (CAD), social product

When more PLM analytic capabilities are required from users, SAP PLM will become a more favorable solution—not only because of SAP’s possession of strong BI technologies, but also because analytics become more meaningful if we combine PLM Read More

Siemens Teamcenter Going to the PLM Cloud


What Siemens alluded to us at its two-day Siemens PLM analyst summit in early September 2012 is now official—the vendor has announced that its flagship product lifecycle management (PLM) software Teamcenter is available on the cloud, adding another platform option for Teamcenter customers. Teamcenter on the cloud delivered through an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) model extends Siemens PLM

The vendor admitted that the so-called Triple A PLM players—Arena Solutions, Aras Corp., and Autodesk 360 PLM— are disruptive forces in terms of PLM deployment and licensing. Siemens pledged to be responsive to the market—i.e., it is constantly reviewing its practices—but everything needs to be good for both the vendor and its Read More

PLM Migration: Migrate Your Mind First


This article identifies the increasing requirements of system replacements in the product lifecycle management (PLM) area and recommends users rethink the implementation scope, system integration, acquisition method, and so on before strategizing their PLM migration plans.

No matter how excited and satisfied you were when your PLM (or its predecessor, product data management [PDM]) system was up and running, as time passed you started to notice that your current system was becoming a constraint. It became an obstacle to continuously raise your organization’s performance. At a certain point, when the current system became more and more unbearable despite Read More

Critical Components of an E-PLM System


E-business has prompted a lot of vendors to move towards creating electronic product lifecycle management (e-PLM) suites. However, enterprise resource planning vendors with extensive e-commerce initiatives, development staffs, and renewed interest in PLM, are as likely to lead the way.

What Does the “L” in PLM Really Mean?


In an earlier post, What Does the “P” in PLM Really Mean?, I discussed what the word “product” means in  product lifecycle management (PLM). In this post, I am going to move onto the next letter, “L” for lifecycle. According to Merriam-Webster, one definition of lifecycle is “a series of stages through which something (as an individual, culture, or manufactured product) passes during its

Product design and development is the main stage where abundant product definition information is generated. When a concept becomes a development project, people need tools to define not only what a product should be (product design), but also how it should be manufactured (engineering design). Computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) are all well-recognized PLM tools Read More

Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog, TEC's P.J. Jakovljevic looked at the main themes of the Siemens PLM Conference 2014 he recently attended, including Siemens’ “realize innovation” strategy. Here are his thoughts regarding the rest of the conference, with a look at what’s new with “catalysts” and Teamcenter, and what else can be expected from the product lifecycle management (PLM) vendor in 2014 and beyond.

Selecting a PLM Vendor
