Why Consider SaaS PLM in Manufacturing

By Kerri Doyle

Why PLM in manufacturing? In the globally connected world of manufacturing, keeping information up to date and in-sync throughout the product lifecycle – from design, to manufacturing planning, to the factory floor, to maintenance – is a constant challenge for manufacturers. 

PLM in Manufacturing

Without efficient data management, communication of changes, and collaboration between domains and throughout the supply chain, your business could be at risk. Product lifecycle management (PLM) can help.

PLM of course is not new.  The technology has been around for quite a while now, and it is a key driver of digitalization and market success for product developers and manufacturers. The benefits to PLM are clear.  However, for many product manufacturers, deploying a PLM solution that must cross-over multiple domains and locations, could seem to be a daunting and expensive task, something they may feel is out of reach. 

What’s Changed?

A modern, comprehensive PLM solution that can address tough manufacturing challenges, without the time and expense required to deploy it, and get users up and running fast, has arrived.  Imagine the value of PLM realized in days, vs. months, with an easy to use, cloud environment with years of manufacturing and industry best practices built into it.  Watch this video to learn about the latest addition to the Siemens SaaS PLM offering – Teamcenter X Manufacturing.
