CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 1

Moreover, given Siemens’ automation origins and slew of related

SAP PLM: Outlook and Predictions


This year, product lifecycle management (PLM) vendors have put many interesting initiatives on display to PLM buyers. These initiatives include the possibility of generating more synergies between enterprise search and PLM, more intuitive decision support in design and engineering, connectivity between direct modeling and history-based modeling in computer-aided design (CAD), social product

cad course  modeling in computer-aided design (CAD), social product development in the cloud, etc. Although most of these initiatives need more time before we can really testify to their value—i.e., the execution of these visions is the challenge that vendors are facing—I believe the PLM industry is shifting from functionality-driven to vision-driven. This makes sense, since users have by now learned that PLM adoption is not a one-time deal—besides what you can get from a PLM vendor right now, the solution's Read More

Where is Oracle in the Product Lifecycle Management Software Market?

During its Oracle E-Enterprise Suite 11i.9 rollout, Oracle espoused a renewed interest and heavy investment in SCM and PLM. This version has essentially the same Read More

What Can Aras’ Selection as PLM Enhancement at MAN Diesel & Turbo Tell Us?


While multi-CAD (computer aided design) situations have been a matter of course at large manufacturing organizations, it appears that multi-PLM (product lifecycle management) software deployments will follow suit.

Catching Up with Omnify Software


In the deluge of news revolving mainly around the Big Five product lifecycle management (PLM) vendors, i.e., Siemens PLM, Dassault Systemes, Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC), Oracle Agile PLM, and SAP PLM, hardly any noise comes from smaller PLM providers in the lower end of the market. To be certain, many smaller PLM players, who had been catering to the mid-market, such as former

The latter was a database product that allowed engineering groups to manage parametric data about design Read More

Dalian Shipyard Transforms Shipbuilding in China with PTC Product Development Tools


After adopting two-dimensional computer-aided design (2D CAD) in the 1990s, Dalian Shipyard discovered that 2D technology didn’t meet the real-world challenges facing ship designers. For example, 2D CAD could not graphically reproduce real ship design challenges, such as collisions. Dalian Shipyard needed better product lifecycle management (PLM) tools. The solution: CADDS 5i—a complete 3D CAD tool for shipbuilding.

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog I talked about market shifts and technological changes that are reshaping the competitive landscape for manufacturing firms, based on PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann’s seven trends, which formed the backbone of his keynote presentation at the PTC Live Global 2013 event held in California in June.

Charting a New Course in Effective Distribution Supply Chain Management


Wholesale distributors that pursue growth while neglecting supply chain effectiveness are putting their long-term survival at risk—usually for no good reason. Supply chains have gained complexity in recent years, but solutions for achieving supply chain management (SCM) effectiveness have become both more accessible and easier to deploy. Learn how these solutions can help your company overcome its SCM challenges.

Future of MOOCs—Repurposing for Enterprise Learning?


A variety of massive open online courses, commonly referred to as MOOCs, are available to individuals worldwide. While the long-standing impact of MOOCs on enterprise learning may be obvious, TEC’s research analyst Raluca Druta predicts that enterprise learning itself will have a huge impact on the design and development of MOOCs in the future. But here’s a word of caution for the repurposing of MOOCs.

The idea of open online courses appeared as a form of online learning primarily for higher education institutions in the late 1990s, early 2000s. According to Wikipedia, the MOOC concept stems from the open educational resources movement—“freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, educational, assessment and research purposes.” The term itself stands for “massive open online course.” It Read More

Time Keepers Or Clock Makers


Right now, you probably have someone hiring and firing warehouse personnel who has never attended a course on interviewing techniques or labor laws. You have someone controlling millions of dollars of inventory that could not tell you the last time they attended a course or read a book about inventory control. And we wonder why our inventory is so inaccurate.

Time cannot be saved, it moves at the same speed no matter what you do! Now think of all the things that are done within your warehouse, supposedly to save time. How many of those things actually worked over the long haul? Can you count them on one hand? If so, then what do you do? It all starts and ends with your warehouse supervisor. When you hire a supervisor Read More
