Vertical Approach to PLM Driving Innovation
August 8, 2012
Over the course of the last decade product lifecycle management (PLM) has undergone a transformation turning a once out-of-the-box approach to a customized one. A recent Design News article, “Dassault Steers PLM toward Automotive Design Challenges”, explains how Dassault , one of the leaders in PLM solutions, has created a new PLM solution aimed at the automotive industry.
The article explains,
“It looks as if Dassault Systèmes is taking the vertical approach a bit more seriously. As part of its evolving focus on 3D experience, not just 3D data, Dassault has just released the first of many new industry solutions, this one specifically to address key challenges in the automotive segment. 3D Experience, as Dassault officials explain it, is the idea of leveraging the company’s 3D capabilities like simulation and high-end visualization functionality to communicate product data, not just as information, but in a more interactive and engaging way.”
Kudos to Dassault for their latest PLM solution but for those not in the automotive industry a similar product is much needed. We recommend Inforbix because vertical approaches to PLM is at the very core of all their PLM solutions. Oleg Shilovitsky, co-founder and CEO, wrote in a recent blog post, “Inforbix deploys technology that helps link islands of data together in manufacturing companies. Our approach is to offer a simple and affordable means of data access regardless of source or location.” This approach combined with a dedication to customer support makes Inforbix a clear winner for manufactures needing new data management solutions.
