HD-PLM Technology Framework Launched at Expo 2010 Shanghai China

By JerrySarfati

As I previously mentioned, Siemens PLM Software launched its HD-PLM Technology Framework at Expo 2010 Shanghai China with a press event and product demonstrations. This was an ideal venue for addressing the globalization demands that manufacturing and process industry companies are facing today.

HD-PLM is based on four basic tenets that define how the technology framework will help users make better decisions faster so they can spend more time innovating.

  • PERSONALIZE – Personalize the users’ experience by recognizing who they are and actively presenting them with only the information they need to perform their tasks.

  • ASSIST – Assist users proactively to make collaborative decisions, by aggregating, analyzing and monitoring information, notifying them when action is required and suggesting collaborators to aid in their decision making.

  • CLARIFY – Clarify the users’ understanding by presenting “rich” information in the most intuitive way and enabling them to navigate to associated data from different disciplines and sources.

  • VALIDATE – Validate user decisions against best practices, by applying analytical techniques to assess alternatives and capturing decision-making best practices for future reference.

Here are some highlights from the event:
