PLM to Improve Time to Market, Quality, Responsiveness

Consumer Goods Industry Status

The failure of traditional PLM impacts the consumer goods industry’s ability to manage the business of engineering. Poor management of the product configuration complicates manufacturing and supplier interfaces and makes it difficult to capture decisions. CPG organizations have difficulty supporting new business needs such as connected products, lifetime product responsibility and the Internet of Things. CPG companies face additional challenges including increasing customer demands, shorter cycle times, fierce global competition, thinner margins and greater regulatory controls. The race is on to simplify operations, speed product development and optimize product cost structures.

A Resilient Approach to PLM

The CPG industry benefits from resilient PLM which lets product developers respond regardless of critical shifts like changing business models, entering new markets, or acquiring other companies. PLM software from Aras makes process changes necessary for systems-driven product development possible without lots of custom programming or new modules to buy.

Together the scalable, adaptable, flexible, and upgradable combination of Aras Innovator make PLM more sustainable, which leads to a lower cost of ownership. Now CPG companies can readily adapt to evolving business requirements and easily handle dynamic requirement changes.
