DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 26, 2006— Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c38657) has announced the addition of Outsourcing Technology for Manufacturers (Technology Focus) to their offering.

Manufacturers are looking to multiple technology areas to assist their operational and horizontal outsourcing strategies. For operational outsourcing, control of key data and processes needs to be retained. Horizontal outsourcing on the other hand requires strong service level agreements and a smooth transition. This brief highlights two approaches (PLM and BPO) that support manufacturers.

Scope of this title:

-- This brief covers product lifecycle management (PLM) as a technology that can support operational outsourcing for manufacturers.

-- Business process outsourcing (BPO) is discussed within this brief and is followed by a detailed market assessment.

Highlights of this title:

-- For manufacturers to effectively outsource all or part of their operations, the management of data and intellectual property is a major issue. If manufacturers wish to outsource some or all of their production, efficient communication and data transfer is required.

-- See how PLM technology can support operational outsourcing within the manufacturing industry.

-- Understand how BPO services can benefit manufacturers, and the structure that such agreements can take.
