Helmuth Ludwig on Productivity

Community Manager Community Manager

Also today, Dr. Helmuth Ludwig, our president, shared his thoughts on productivity in this economy. He discussed key drivers of optimization:

  • Reducing cost
  • Increasing productivity
  • Increasing quality
  • Removing waste and non-value processes
  • Optimizing product portfolio

He also shared some research results on waste from MIT’s Lean Advancement Initiative, where they still find 77% waste and only 12% in value-add activities.

He gave a customer example which happened to be Siemens itself as it looks to increase productivity with an integrated PLM-IT toolset to unify product and production platforms.

His challenge to our customers was to be champions of change in their organizations.

I asked what feedback he has gotten from our customers the past two days and he said he was impressed with the positive feedback on the power in our toolset.
