Moving beyond product development to product lifecycle management
IBM Continuous Engineering (CE) is the right solution when it comes to product innovation, helping development teams:
- Manage their growing complexity
- Keep them focused on what’s important
- Track everything
- Help them get more done, faster
But what about tools to help drive business innovation? What about looking beyond product development to every phase of the product lifecycle?
In today’s environment, it’s not enough to simply bring a superior product to market – you need to responsibly curate the entire supply chain of component and systems manufacturers, then support the product in every phase of its life, including its eventual disposal/disposition.
Those business challenges require a different kind of solution: they require a product lifecycle management (PLM) platform.
Why you need a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution
Managing the entire product lifecycle efficiently and effectively requires the tight integration of a number of purpose-built applications systems—including IBM CE applications—as seen in the graphic above.
When integrated properly within an organization’s IT ecosystem, a PLM platform delivers the following product and business benefits:
- Reduced time to market
- Reduced prototyping costs
- Improved product quality
- Longer product life
- Reduced total cost of ownership
- Higher customer satisfaction throughout product lifecycle
- Reduced environmental impact at end-of-life
The PLM movement began in the aerospace and automotive industries decades ago, led by Dassault Systèmes, one of the most trusted names in product design, prototyping, development and testing for nearly 40 years.
Dassault Systèmes has been the PLM provider of choice for IBM for many years, and Persistent Systems is proud to support Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE® platform with our customers as well.
