Oxford, England. November 09, 2010
The PLMIG announces a formalised methodology for creating an on-line 'management dashboard' that displays to everyone in the extended enterprise all the information they need to know about PLM.
Creating a PLM Dashboard shows the CEO, product development, operations, field support, finance, and also the external customer and supply chains, exactly what is the current PLM status - and enables them to drill down and run "what if?" queries so that they can decide what should happen next.
The mechanism and material to create the PLM Dashboard are based on the current set of PLMIG methods and tools, and make use of existing metrics that may already have been generated within an implementation.
PLM Dashboarding is particularly valuable for large corporations wishing to generate a unified view of PLM within their organisation. Smaller companies can follow the same methodology, and reap similar benefits.
The full methodology for creating current and future dashboards is contained in the Q2 2010 issue of the PLM Journal
