Lessons learned included:

  • Keep it standard and simple (leveraging the architecture OOTB, avoiding custom development).

  • Prepare – training PLM concepts and Teamcenter as well as aligning business needs with the solutions.

PCO Innovation supported the implementation and presented with Dominic.
