In an increasingly complex product development landscape, effective Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) becomes a vital part of any business’ strategy. As part of our continuous efforts to provide our clients with the most effective and innovative strategies, we’ve recently published a White Paper exploring the nuances and benefits of PLM Roadmapping.
PLM Roadmapping: A Journey of Continuous Improvement
PLM Roadmapping provides an initial strategic plan for implementing, extending, and optimizing PLM, and continuously adapts and optimizes this plan throughout the PLM journey. It aids businesses to align their PLM objectives with their overall goals using a structured approach: the roadmap helps to connect expected value to target solution components, ultimately guiding teams during implementation and deployment phases. We’ve recently explored these outcomes in greater detail, highlighting how to refine and leverage PLM strategies more effectively.
Key Components of PLM Roadmapping
Our exploration of PLM Roadmapping highlighted key components such as Value Definition, Proof of Value, Master Plan, Program Strategy, and Governance Model. Understanding these components is vital to ensure efficient and successful PLM strategies.
Applying PLM Roadmapping to Greenfield and Brownfield Implementations
Whether it’s a greenfield project (starting a new implementation from scratch), or a brownfield project (transforming an existing PLM solution), PLM Roadmapping plays an instrumental role. It provides a structured approach that caters to the unique challenges and opportunities presented in both scenarios.
At DxP Services, we firmly believe that agility in adapting to changes and alignment of PLM objectives with overall business goals are vital for successful PLM strategies. This alignment ensures that PLM Roadmapping directly supports the unique needs and strategic direction of the company. We encourage businesses to adopt these principles within their PLM Roadmapping for optimal results.
