In going through my notes from last week's PLM Connection Europe event, there were a few more highlights I wanted to share. I was able to record a few minutes of Chuck's presentation that touches on "designing the product for the factory and the factory for the product." It was a part of his presentation where he highlighted the way PLM has moved beyond just discrete manufacturing to hybrid and process industries like CPG, retail, energy, chemical, etc. Below is the slide and soundbite.
You need an integrated approach to product and production definition to design the product for the factory and the factory for the product. Below is a slide from Chuck's presentation that shows how those lifecycles begin to integrate through that common definition.
The key to integrating product and production is open technology. In my previous post and video interview with Chuck, he shared comments on Siemens PLM vision and strategy. In regards to open technology, he explained "future-proof architecture." (See the video Q&A at 6 minutes in). Below is a slide to visually explain how open architecture is organized.
Last but not least, while we announced HD-PLM in May, some of the underlying technology had already been appearing in NX and Teamcenter in recent years. Chuck shared a slide on the "Evolution of HD User Experience" that explains this in more detail.
I hope you find these slides and soundbites from Chuck's presentation useful. If you have more questions for Chuck, let me know in a comment.
