PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 15, 2003--Strategic
Management Group, Inc., the world leader in simulation products and
services, announced today the launch of its Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM) practice.
The practice is focused on leveraging simulation to accelerate the
time to value of corporate PLM initiatives.
The practice, led by Gail Rogers, Practice Delivery Executive, and
Jamie Goetsch, Practice Executive, brings SMG's 22 years of
experience, intellectual property, and simulation methodology and
technology to its clients' strategic PLM initiatives.
SMG's simulation products and services provide a competitive edge
to those that develop, support, market and sell within an
organization, leading to growth, profitability and increased ROI. The
practice will focus on using simulation to streamline business
processes, select the right product portfolio and ensure the complete
integration of efforts across the organization.
SMG's engagement teams will ensure a close alignment between the
business issues addressed in the simulations and the PLM initiative.
"Today's competitive global economy requires businesses to
accelerate the time to value of their PLM initiatives," says Rogers.
"SMG offers simulation products and services that help cut costs and
drive revenue. SMG's solutions transform the PLM process, by ensuring
that it drives the efficiency it was designed to create."
SMG is currently working with over half of the Fortune 500 to
create simulations that support the specific elements of their PLM
initiatives. SMG's proprietary methodology and technology has made it
possible to simulate the product lifecycle management process and to
model specific behaviors that are needed to implement pre-launch,
launch and post-launch activities.
These modular simulations are being developed rapidly and
cost-effectively, and have helped SMG's clients accelerate the time to
value of their PLM and Sales initiatives.
