  • Operation excellent – It is a philosophy, and the key is Performance metrics. People also discuss best in class, which stems from best practices and good business outcomes
  • Our experience is that many SME’s - can not be complacent cannot be mediocre- No one can be complacent and accept mediocrity or this is just the way we do things here
  • Put more meat here- I can’t control the cost of oil, but I can control my operational infrastructure and processes
  • For Manufacturing companies, these are the big 3 disciplines. Since we are focusing on PLM, lets look at a product’s life cycle over time and see how these disciplines are used
  • Pause- inside this use graph are also boundary layers between all three systems, that require information to be exchanges or passed between PLM and ERP and CRM to PLM or ERP, let’s investigate that with an analogy from the womens 4 x 100 olympic relay race
  • Congrats to Team USA for their victory in the 4 x 100 relay.
  • Even if you have the right infrastructure or systems in place, passing information between them “ tests” the limits of those systems and processes. Modern CRM PLM and ERP systems can communicate, and Pro Nova will be discussing that in their presentation
  • Many companies have these issues in product development because they are doing PLM without a comprehensive PLM technology underneath the business processess. They may have CRM and ERP, but the PLM discipline is an sad hoc siloed infrastructure of microsoft spreadsheets and simple PDM systems
  • Looking at our earlier picture of a product lifecycle and layering in the “ batons” of information that need to be passed a certain stages in the lifecycle.
  • A more detailed view of a complete product structure or full product record in PLM the as designed BOM
  • Let’s take a look at a large company you are all familiar with, and see what they have for driving operational excellent and product velocity
  • Apple’s performance metrics are outstanding. At the apex, is shareholder value, the largest valuation in with world – A World Record
  • It’s a race – winner has the most velocity to market , PLM helps you gain the velocity – Platform products , organized in PLM – Compared that to the siloed operation – 2 – 3 years to get a product to market - OPERATIONAL Excellence!
  • If I were a small the Medium enterprise executive, I would be asking these same questions… we just talked about Apple how can you compare yourself to Apple – Operational excellence
  • Adam introduction slide
  • Thanks Adam, now let’s take a brief high level view of Agile PLM with a 15 minute demo from Mike Halladay, who worked on implementing Agile at Pro Nova Solutions with Adam and the team there
  • Thanks Mike, now we all know to invest in anything we need to have an ROI prepared for the CFO. And it had better do 1 or all of these three things – increase revenue, decrease cost or mitigate risk. You can see the details of some sample improvement metrics with PLM.
  • Now I would like to introduce Zero wait state’s chairman, Paul Peck and have Paul discuss a couple of success stories with Agile PLM in terms of the reducing costs with Bom information and also empowering ERP with the right bom information from Agile
  • Thanks Paul- those were great stories. Now PLM is not only about the as designed BOM or but a complete product record and the automating the associated business processes around the product record. Many people implement PL just to automate their change processs or quality process, but they should have road map to phase in all of these processess over time Tie this back to Pro Nova solutions road map
  • Mention Pro Nova story – and other 50 companies that have implemented PLM with ZWS, small medium and large, Walking – web site blogs , presentations, videos If you like what you heard and saw today, and want to start faster – jogging – these options
  • Our purpose is to help you achieve gold level operational excellence! Feel free to contact us – either me directly or thru our web site.
