Modular PLM: A Successful Strategy for SMBs

The best way for SMBs to approach PLM is with a modular, sprint-based implementation, rather than rolling out an entire PLM platform at once.

For small and midsized businesses (SMBs), product lifecycle management (PLM) adoption is a high-risk, high-reward proposition. The anticipated downtime, interruptions, and productivity loss makes the promised payoff seem daunting; however, successful companies have also discovered greater efficiency afterward.

The best way for SMBs to approach PLM is with a modular, sprint-based implementation, rather than rolling out an entire PLM platform at once. By taking on PLM in smaller chunks, a product company can gradually build the PLM infrastructure with minimum disruption to its current workflows and daily routines. The latest cloud-based app-style PLM makes the adoption much simpler and enables a speedier return on investment.

Tune in to hear about:

  • the benefits of PLM;
  • best practices for SMB PLM adoption;
  • recommended core pieces to roll out in phase I;
  • typical apps to consider for phase II.
