26 Feb 2014, 02:55

  • Understanding that PLM is a learning process and each step should be built upon previous mistakes
  • Ensuring active executive support & investment
  • Ensuring people get a business solution, not just another system
  • Maintaining business commitment and competitiveness
  • How do you assure the PLM implementation is not cementing the as-is situation, but is really future proof (and flexible)
  • Building a strong data model involving all team reps prior to system configuration
  • Getting your solution provider to provide a company specific value stream solution
  • Defining a good end user support strategy
  • Managing cultural change because political battles are inevitable and most people are not willing to accept change
  • Going live step by step - start small and don’t grow too fast in terms of functionality
  • Using PLM as a base for collaborating effectively with suppliers and customers
  • Implementation across multiple product lines is complicated; what strategies or techniques break the implementation down into manageable chunks and still maintain the business value of PLM?
