For any PLM implementation to be successful you need to understand:

  • Your company specific business initiatives and drivers

  • The barriers to achieving those initiatives

  • The value PLM can bring in overcoming those barriers

  • The capabilities which will provide this value

VDA is a free of charge independent review which identifies your business impediments and the potential value of solving them through improved Product Lifecycle Management.

Typical issues uncovered include:

  • Non-value added activities

  • Repetitive activities

  • Manual, paper-based processes

  • Excessive time spent managing compliance

  • Lack of access to the right information at the right time

  • Manual data entry and re-entry

  • Supply chain communication issues

Your PLM solution is the one which gives you the most:

  • Business Benefit

  • Business Value … supporting your Business Initiatives and Goals

Achieving this requires a 3-step approach

  1. Value Discovery Analysis

  2. Solution Roadmap Definition

  3. Implement and Measure Business Value
