Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
  • Organisational Strategy
    • Need for structural change
    • IT tools
    • Increased integration (rather than “point solutions”)
  • Provide targeted tools for SCM at various stages in the life cycle of products
  • SCM is initially geared for planning / execution with existing products
  • Not sensitive to life cycle
  • Volvo: to enable better global coordination in manufacturing process planning.

  • Bring products to market quicker with better designs
    • Postponement , more resilient etc…
  • Support collaboration between:
    • Internally: marketing and sales, planning and production, procurement, and maintenance
    • Externally: partners, suppliers, contract manufacturers, service providers -- even customers
  • Allow the management of new assets, environment, health, and safety requirements
  • Allow integration between mysapERP, mysapSRM, mysapCRM and mysapCRM!

Components
  • Specification data sheets
  • Document management
    • Structured repositories
  • Complex authorization system
  • Partner work areas
    • Eg: suppliers (for bidding stages)
  • Workflow and status management
  • Connection to backend systems (BOMs, suppliers files, asset registers etc…)
plm stages
PLM Stages
  • Plan
  • Define
  • Build
  • Support
  • ….
  • Imagine this in the context of a portfolio approach
    • different products at different stages
    • Different information needs
    • Different partners / emphasis
  • Imagine the IP problems too.
plan innovate and spec
Plan – Innovate and spec.
  • Up to 80% of product costs are determined in the very early stages of life cycle
  • Collaboration tool for multinational projects
  • Bring stakeholders at an earlier stage
    • Cost saving adjustments
    • Investigation of variants
    • Exit strategy
    • Increase speed of development
  • Reduce unnecessary changes during product life cycle
  • Allow asynchronous work and ensure security of data
  • Support global development teams
define develop and validate
Define – Develop and Validate
  • Computer aided design
  • Common repository of customer requirements
  • Real time validation / compliance
  • Simulation of performance
    • Enormous reduction in cost in comparison with physical prototyping
  • Computer aided development of production tooling
    • Optimised routings
    • Accurate projects of cost per unit
build produce and deliver
Build – Produce and deliver
  • Translation of design of solution into manufacturing execution (traditionally disconnected)
  • Less structured task because more dynamic and diverse
    • Many competences (quality validation, process improvement, plant design, resource management etc..)
  • Greater continuity, collaboration and cohesion in the on-going improvement of products
support service and sustain
Support – Service and Sustain
  • Close the loop:
  • Connect front line staff with early planners
  • Communicate new/changed requirements
  • Check if predictions are true
  • Learn for next release / new products
  • Involve all partners in process
  • Manage a complete portfolio of products
  • Knowledge management across sites, competences and across systems (ERP, SCM and CRM)
