Mercury Marine cuts change time by 50% with product change management process

By Margaret Furleigh

With a drive to be #1 in the market, Mercury Marine controls the product change management process, along with other information and processes involved in the development and delivery of innovative products, using Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) software.

“Our whole process development cycle was put inside Teamcenter right from our concept through our phase-gated process to our change management process and brought in all our cross-functional teams … an average change actually dropped from 50-plus days down to 25.” — Emil Kacan, Director of Business Development, Mercury Digital Services

Teamcenter helps Mercury Marine meet the challenges of increased product complexity by connecting people with the information and processes they need to make the right product decisions.

“As things become more innovative … there’s a lot more complexity when you think about software and hardware and firmware and bringing all of that together in a product development process.” — Lateef Khan, General Manager, Mercury Digital Services
