The Many Faces of PLM Part Two: The Future of the PLM Suite


The future of the PLM Suite will include more applications that cover product-related functionality and further expand the benefits available. As the PLM Suite matures, companies will benefit from increased functionality and increased integration between business processes. The ultimate expression of this more mature solution will result in a broad suite of focused, integrated applications that leverage a core of unified, structured product data - the PLM Platform.

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint


There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking thanks to various factors driving the market. Currently, however, the difference still matters in the solution selection process.

what is plm solution architecture  reached a consensus about what a PLM system is, people tend to consider PLM as consisting of two major categories.  The first category is sometimes called PLM tools, which includes various computer-aided technologies for manufacturing such as CAD, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE). The second category is known as collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm), which manages the documents and data generated by PLM tools and provides a collaborative platform Read More

CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises in a strategic sense. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. I then explored the advantages and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from stalwart

what is plm solution architecture  less appealing (no matter what the aggressive PLM sales person might say). The idea that one big PLM process and database will work across all departments is not a reality. Therefore, a federated PLM database and processes, object messaging, and/or a lego-like approach may be the best strategy. In this setup, a set of PLM processes becomes a layer on top of one or more underlying enterprise solutions. Each underlying PLM and/or ERP solution can be specific to the particular process step or department in Read More

Architecture Evolution: From Mainframes to Service-oriented Architecture


Product architecture is going to do much more than simply provide the technical functionality, the user interface, and the platform support. It is going to determine whether a product is going to be able to accommodate increasingly evolving user requirements.

what is plm solution architecture  Evolution: From Mainframes to Service-oriented Architecture Software architecture can be defined simply as the design or blueprint of an application or software package. This blueprint describes the layout of the application's deployment, including partitioning its business logic between servers (computers). The architecture thus incorporates protocols and interfaces for interacting with other programs or computers, and all these should vouch for future flexibility and expandability. Read More

Critical Components of an E-PLM System


E-business has prompted a lot of vendors to move towards creating electronic product lifecycle management (e-PLM) suites. However, enterprise resource planning vendors with extensive e-commerce initiatives, development staffs, and renewed interest in PLM, are as likely to lead the way.

what is plm solution architecture  Components of an E-PLM System Background Electronic product lifecycle management (e-PLM) is an evolving and collaborative application suite that is building steam and gaining momentum thanks to e-business. However, most traditional product data management (PDM), computer-aided design (CAD) integration, and project management vendors cannot yet offer a complete suite of applications to meet all e-business requirements. Traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors with heavy investment in Read More

10 Advantages of a Single System ERP Solution


ERP software is meant to be an application where information is shared freely between all departments of an organization. While the idea is that an ERP system creates one central location for all information, the reality is that multiple systems bolted together in an integrated system often creates multiple silos of information. This paper describes the benefits of a single system ERP.

Cream.HR has adopted what, in psychology, are referred to as the Big Five personality traits. These are five broad domains that are used to describe human personality. The Big Five factors are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The premise relies on the belief that the Big Five traits are predictors of future performance outcomes. Read More

How Many Napkins Have to Die Needlessly? A Case for Business Architecture


Architecture is a description of how things go together. Once we know what our Business Architecture is, we can design an Information Technology Architecture to compliment it. Without a clearly stated architecture, there is a good chance that things will be put together wrong.

The perfect architecture is functional, simple and clearly understood. It must be functional to serve two constituencies. First, the business manager's processes will be enabled and optimized through systems built on its capabilities. Second, information technologists must build in compliance with architectural guidelines. This balance of operational vision and constrained realization is the measure Read More

The Benefits of CRM Internet Architecture


One of the most important aspects of any business management application, including CRM applications, is its underlying architecture. An application’s customizability, adaptability, portability, scalability, and extensibility are all functions of its architecture. A well-designed architecture will thus accommodate growth and adapt to business changes—without affecting the performance of the application or requiring an exhaustive re-implementation.
