Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) aims to organize and optimize product data flows throughout the product life cycle. PLM requires the consistency of processes, organizations and data models to support the performance of studies, developments, purchasing, production, operations, customer service, maintenance and evolutions until the end of product life in the most efficient way.

How to strengthen the fundamentals of PLM design methods?

First, it is about building a solid foundation and ensuring, through PLM, the fundamental good practices of product development: consolidating, securing and sharing the data created in the various disciplines involved in development, while managing their growing maturity. Control configurations, traceability and modifications, master a simple level of exchange in an extended company. Provide tools for the basic steps of a system engineering approach.

PLM, the backbone of digital transformation

At Mews Partners, we foresee the rise of influencing factors that will impact the way PLM projects will be conducted in the future:

  • the search for standardization of development and product policy
  • the progressive replacement of the current documentary approach by a model-based approach
  • the digitization of information flows (digital thread), the digital twin
  • finally, Artificial Intelligence, which will make it possible to evolve towards “enhanced engineering”.

We support PLM programs from strategy definition to implementation

With a participation in 80 programs on more than 700 missions in all industrial sectors, Mews Partners has an extensive and multi-sector experience in the success of PLM projects. We capitalize on best practices to manage each phase of a PLM program and avoid its pitfalls.
