Key PLM Implementation Project Risks
As with any strategic IT initiative, the potential benefits from PLM are substantial but managing PLM initiatives are vital to success. While some PLM initiatives add tremendous value to organisations, others fail to deliver the expected benefits and may actually destroy value.
PLM Product Selection & Procurement Tips
Evaluating, justifying, selecting and procuring a PLM solution (quite apart from implementing it) is a complicated and, potentially, quite political charged process with plenty of potential pitfalls for the unwary.
This article provides a few tips to help the lucky project manager tasked with running the evaluation, selection & procurement process avoid some of these pitfalls.
The Boundaries between PLM and ERP
There is often an internal debate within companies investigating PLM as to whether these important capabilities should be delivered by a standalone PLM solution (perhaps integrated with ERP) or whether these capabilities should be provided by extending the footprint of an existing ERP system.
This article explores some of the issues that should be considered when making this important decision..
