The impact of digital solutions throughout the lifecycle of industrial products

Industrial companies have always sought to develop and launch products that are innovative, robust and capable of meeting the needs of their customers. Competitiveness and agility plus a versatile manufacturing-engineering system are key requirements for companies to grow and thrive. Digital data and process repository technologies throughout the industrial product lifecycle contribute to achieve this. Inetum’s PLM service offering covers the entire product lifecycle and offers solutions integrating System Engineering and Requirements (ALM), Definition and Development Engineering (PLM) as well as Support and Service Engineering (SLM).

A digital continuity strategy of single, central, shared and trusted access to product data repositories requires the right use of PLM and related business processes. It is the backbone source of reliable data on which business applications – simulations, digital twins, AR/VR, collaborative design, eBOM-mBOM-sBOM chain, etc. – are built.

Thanks to ‘design cockpit tower’ capabilities, modern PLM systems allow real-time monitoring of the entire development chain. Development activities are controlled to shorten time-to-market and enhance customer satisfaction with agile and innovative continuous improvement.

IS PLM costs can be optimised by making the PLM system evolve along the product cycle to include new innovative capabilities, while keeping it open to enterprise process optimisation. A cost-based implementation approach guarantees reduced maintenance and upgrading costs to maximise software vendor support and solution compatibility.

The strength of today’s PLM lies in collaboration across all business layers (multidiscipline, multidomain, extended enterprise …). Creating a core repository based on integrated IS-IT solutions that support local business specificities is the key to digital continuity.

Digital continuity is the next step towards aligning products with customer expectations. New xLM solutions should integrate system-based definition and requirement management in the design and development process. A closer loop between quality management systems and service level management is key to shorten the development cycle and produce the right product first time.  

In today’s constantly changing environment and global, interconnected market, products are becoming smart, traceable and compliant with increasingly complex standards and new customer requirements. This shift towards Industry 4.0 and the improvement of industrial processes requires control of the enterprise data repository.
