Ten Step Approach to PLM
The "Ten Step Approach to PLM" Workshop is presented by John Stark, an authority on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), and an experienced PLM consultant. The Workshop helps participants understand the Ten Step Approach to PLM developed by John Stark Associates to help companies make faster progress with PLM.
The Ten Step Approach to PLM is applicable in companies of all sizes in almost any industry and can be beneficial at all stages of PLM investigation and use. It is as applicable during the initial introduction of PLM as when extending an existing PDM implementation. It can be used to review current PLM performance, to clarify PLM concepts, to choose between different options, or to gain a deep understanding of an individual option.
The Ten Step Approach to PLM includes the following ten activities: 1. PLM Status Review, Data Gathering ; 2. Executive PLM Education and Awareness ; 3. Best Practice Positioning ; 4. PLM Concept Generation and Analysis ; 5. PLM Roadmap and Plan Generation ; 6. Business Benefits and Business Case Development ; 7. ROI Calculation ; 8. Management Report Preparation ; 9. Executive Presentation ; 10. Executive Decision Support
Experience shows that these ten steps help in understanding where PLM can be applied to a business most effectively. And they help to get that all-important executive approval for the PLM initiative to proceed. The Ten Step Approach is a tried-and-tested methodology that has been used in many companies, at different stages of PLM progress, in many industries. The ten steps make it clear to everyone involved what has to be done, with clear deliverables at each step to show what has been achieved.
