Expansion of PLM to industrial goods sector (Material industry)
PLM has been implemented mainly in discrete manufacturing industry, but in recent years, customers in the process type manufacturing industry such as chemicals, foods have also become more active in this area from the perspective of BOM, variation management, and life cycle management.
Even in the industrial goods sector (material industry), various challenges have been increasing such as increase in product variations, increase in product quality requirements, the need to respond to the changes in business environment such as increased uncertainties or shortage of human resources. and quick response to the customer needs due to the changes in the external environment.
On the other hand, we often see and hear the cases of managing technical information separately on servers and personal PCs, and carrying out inefficient operations such as communicating distributed information manually in the customer's internal environment .
Furthermore, scalability of system is low because technical information is managed by a legacy IT system and there are cases where people are forced to use a system that is not suitable for their current business. The reality is that many customers are reaching the limit of their business operations with the conventional system.
In addition, there is a problem that work is carried out by manual based operations to deal with such challenges. This situation has created the needs for digitization and utilization of technical information and motivation for the implementing PLM in industrial goods sector (material industry).
By implementing PLM, complex and large amount of technical information can be digitized, integrated and managed. Furthermore, PLM improves operational efficiency and QCD by utilizing data effectively, supports knowledge transfer by digitizing know-how information, and open up the system to respond flexibly to the business environment.
In other words, PLM provides a “digital platform for promoting digital transformation”, realizes a chain of technical information across the entire product lifecycle and strengthens dynamic capability of the manufacturer.
Obbligato solution for industrial goods sector (Material industry)
In this section, we would like to introduce the Obbligato solution that meets the business requirements of industrial goods sector (material industry).
It Integrates multiple recipes (BOM) and process information (BOP) according to the manufacturing phase such as prototype recipe, development recipe and production recipe. In addition, it centrally manages related information such as product and raw material information, documents and cost information to link data seamlessly from design to manufacturing. At the same time, information can be shared across various departments by visualizing business processes.
