- From Drawings to a Parts-Centric Development Process
Without a complete, digital Bill of Material (BOM), teams across your organization will feel the sting of increased costs, decreased product quality, and delayed time to market. PTC Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) enables you to adopt a parts-centric approach to managing your BOM with a single source of truth to all product data across your organization. Experience true closed-loop lifecycle management from early concept through all iterations, design cycles, and stages until your product is fully released.
Change & Configuration Management
Fast-Paced, Coordinated Changes
Understanding the impact of a change across the organization – no matter how small -- is key to ensuring your product’s success in the market.
PTC’s PLM solution allows you to make dynamic, fast-paced, coordinated changes throughout the product lifecycle to ensure that all stakeholders are accessing the most up-to-date product information. Scalable, tailorable traceability throughout the product lifecycle is at the core of PTC PLM – ensuring better enterprise visibility, and faster and more accurate response to market pressure.
PLM Starts with Requirements
In order to ensure the safety and security of your customers, your products and services must meet industry standards. PTC's Requirements and Validation solution allows your organization to trace requirements throughout the product lifecycle. Unique change management notifications for CAD designers provide a link to requirements, allowing your teams to make the right decisions based on the most up-to-date product data.
Connecting Quality to the Product Lifecycle
With warranty costs and rework, the cost of poor quality can quickly add up to lost market share. The key to ensuring your product is of the highest quality is to integrate the quality department into the rest of the product development process.
PTC’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions connect quality information with product information. Any issues that arise during service feed back into the lifecycle so you can continually improve the product, and keep customers happy and costs low.
- Think of Your Product and Design as a Platform
Your customers are increasingly looking for customization – whether it’s to their specific market, geography, or industry. Rather than produce expensive one-offs for each customer, you can adopt a platform approach to product development.
By thinking about your product and design as a platform, you’ll be able to more efficiently make product variations. PTC Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) allows you to strategically design, create, manage, and validate your product variants to ensure that your customers get the products that they need.
Product Data Management
Manage, Share, Review
The average engineer loses 25% of their time to data management. That’s time wasted searching for files, recreating data, updating systems and answering requests.
PTC makes data management easy with a single view to the latest multi-CAD and product data. Securely share more consumable data with non-engineering colleagues through role-based, self-service applications and 3D visualization technology.
Now available in the PTC Cloud, PDM removes your burden of data administration and lets you get back to design.
Access Only the Data That You Need
It is becoming increasingly important to securely collaborate across more functions globally. PTC provides role-based data access to stakeholders, ensuring they see only required data. Whether you need to allow direct access to your enterprise systems, create a copy of information to be shared in a collaborative space, or send a technical data package to outside vendors, PTC has a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to ensure complete protection of your IP.
