Enabling Operational Excellence with a Holistic Technology Framework
Impacts of EHS performance on Operational Excellence are staggering and have the potential to, on the one side, derail a business entirely, or, on the other, ensure continued success and leadership in the field. EHS is also intrinsically related to other enterprise performance areas, including energy, assets, quality, operations, and quality management.
Between the rise of mobile devices, Big Data, the Internet of Things, social media, and sentiment analysis, there’s a new EHS paradigm at hand, and progressive manufacturers need to adapt and adopt the right technological tools in order to compete and outperform effectively.
There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
Project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results, however many companies still lack forward-looking capabilities to predict project outcomes and ensure success. Enhancing project management with PLM analytics offers the opportunity to switch from task-based activities to performance-driven ones to improve success rates.
Use PLM Analytics to:
• Gain actionable insight and valuable intelligence
• Dramatically boost business value and improve project management performance
• Reduce error-prone behavior like manual data collection
• Leverage big-data capabilities and project intelligence
Learn how to extend the value of your PLM investment and improve business performance for your company.
Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
