PLM Solution Evaluation and Selection - A 12-Month Selection Case Study

Presented by Henrique Ladeira

In this session we hear about the PLM selection process at the Brazilian aerospace conglomerate.

  • Advancing a concept-only PLM roadmap into a full-blown, Board-approved 5 year enterprise PLM Program in 12 months
  • Building an elite cross-functional Core Team to develop prerequisites for solution evaluation and selection
  • Attaining services of an outside consulting firm to provide methodology and expert insight to accelerate the process and reduce risks
  • Leveraging company culture as a strength but do not go so far as to make it a weakness
  • Involving subject matter experts from business areas in the definition of requirements and use cases having a strong vision of the process and not only a technology focus
  • Keeping the evaluation/selection process short, intense and productive
  • Evaluating 5 promising candidate suppliers
  • Striking a master agreement with the selected partner and acquiring all required software and pricing and terms for services through the 5 years of the program
