Get What You Pay For with PLM

Oxford, England. June 30 2015 -- The question of whether PLM delivers on its promises is almost as old as PLM itself.
 
It surfaces at the early planning and negotiation stages, when the investment has to be justifed, and can hang around for years as the implementation evolves beyond its original parameters. When people ask: "Was PLM worth doing?", the answers are not readily available.
 
It is a difficult question to answer, but the PLM industry needs to do it. When an implementation is successful, this should be made crystal clear to everybody. When it achieves its targets, and improves the business, this should be visible in solid numbers. Otherwise, investing in PLM will always be an act of faith.
 
If user companies look at PLM with the same rigour as they look at their other investments, then some will start to demand that they get what they pay for in PLM. If vendors look at the inherent delays and inefficiences in the sales and adoption process, then some will see the value in having a clear structure for PLM Delivery.
 
Developing a neutral PLM Delivery structure will require international cooperation, and the PLMIG aims to coordinate this. The first step will be an open discussion period, with a Survey to establish what the Delivery metrics might be.
 
The PLM Interest Group
The PLM Interest Group is the leading neutral industry group for PLM. It has produced the PLM Project Justification Handbook for PLM financial justification; the PLMuERP Handbook for enterprise-wide PLM-ERP integration; as well as tools for Benchmarking, Maturity Measurement and Self-Assessment.
