By integrating with Arena’s BOMControl solution, most companies realize a faster time to market due to a 50-70% reduction in ECO cycle times, a 30%-40% reduction in scrap and rework, lower product documentation costs, error-free outsourcing, and supply chain collaboration in the design process. A manufacturer’s success depends on teams working from “one version of the truth.”

  • Mistakes made in the early phase of a project can doom a new product to failure, regardless of how good the engineering is.
  • Do it right from the start -- the leverage is HUGE!
  • Secrets to Maximizing Your Supply Chain Strategy

    1. 1. Secrets to Maximizing Your Supply Chain Strategy
    2. 2. AGENDA Vivien Roduit CFO, Selectron Systems AG Michael D. Keer Founder & CEO, Product Realization Group Steve Chalgren VP Product Management & Strategy, Arena Solutions WTG Moderator Q&A MC with speakers
    3. 3. Vivien Roduit Chief Financial Officer
    4. 4. About Vivien Roduit • Vivien’s first mission at Selectron was to in-source the IT Department after a successful Management Buy-out. • During this process, Vivien was confronted with the challenging issue to find the right Product-Lifecycle Management Tool for the organization. • He assisted the engineers to structure their requirements and select the right tool to promote industry best practices and collaborate through the whole value chain
    5. 5. About Selectron Systems AG • The specialist for train automation http://www.selectron.ch  Based in Lyss, Switzerland  Worldwide operations: More than 5000 vehicles successfully in service  100 employees, 80% engineers/technicians  Production is outsourced to key suppliers  Some R&D are done with key partners
    6. 6. 2009: 3 main issues to face in our Supply Chain Las Vegas – Monorail - BOMBARDIER • Missed communication  Wasted Money o Solution: Effective collaboration with structured processes and tools • Unstructured information  Wasted time o Solution: Structured information prepared for effective product maintenance • Long term availability needed  High maintenance costs o Solution: Long term availability management
    7. 7. One single source of information for ALL • Everyone inside and outside the company has access to the same data at the same time  Key points: o Information needs to be safe o No compromise allowed o Best practices implemented in the program  Key benefits: o Better communication o Know-How partly stored in the program  Tips: o Don’t build it yourself Europe wide – EMU KISS double deck - STADLER
    8. 8. Purchase and R&D work hand-in-hand from Design to Cost • Information of R&D and Purchase are shared:  Minimize cost of change  Limit cost of opportunity  Clear information: o Decrease costs o Improve product quality Shenzhen Metro Line 4 in China - CSR
    9. 9. Lessons Learned: There is no trade-off One single source of information allows effective collaboration through out the supply chain, quicker product maintenance and decrease in NPD costs Purchase department needs to be involved early on in the process Don‘t reinvent the wheel Use pre-customized solutions with industry best practices
    10. 10. Michael Keer Founder & CEO
    11. 11. About Michael Keer • Over 20 years of High Technology business leadership experience in both Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Contract Manufacturing (CM) environments • As founder of the Product Realization Group (PRG), Michael created the end-to-end outsourced services model that supports high-tech companies bring new product to market • Prior to the PRG, Michael was the CEO of SofTEQ, an Enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services company.

    12. 12. New Product Introduction (NPI) - Challenges and Best Practices …how to reduce NPI risk, share real world examples
    13. 13. About PRG • Product Realization Group provides New Product Introduction training, consulting, and execution services for high technology businesses. • PRG enables rapid and cost effective introduction of products to the market, regulatory compliance, manufacturing, service, and lifecycle support. • Currently delivering services to over 500 high-tech clients (aggregate).
    14. 14. Where does NPI Fit? A subset of the product lifecycle, which spans concept to end of life, NPI's focus is on a product's beta, pilot, and general availability (GA) stages.
    15. 15. Why is NPI Important? Product Realization As envisioned by the designers…
    16. 16. Product Realization with a poor NPI process… Why is NPI Important?
    17. 17. New Product Introduction Goals
    18. 18. New Product Introduction Business Challenges • Resource Availability and Expertise:  Internal resources are not always available to meet NPI demands. • Global Footprint:  Complexities of managing customers and supply chain (incl. design houses) around the globe  end-to-end data management. • NPI Management:  Internal resources often have limited bandwidth to integrate and manage design and supply chain partners effectively.
    19. 19. New Product Introduction Common Pitfalls • Unrealistic timeframes for development, testing, and transfer to manufacturing • Not controlling safety, IP, and / or regulatory compliance risks • Last minute changes in product features and impact • Silo engineering with manual data management
    20. 20. New Product Introduction 7 Best Practices 1. Use Concurrent Engineering • Assign experienced NPI project manager • Assemble cross-functional team • Follow structured phase-gate process 2. Mitigate Risks • Focus on basic product requirements / features • Perform feasibility studies early 3. Employ Design for Excellence (DFX) • Leverage during key transition points • Concept  Eng.  Design  Production 4. Rapid Prototyping and Accelerated life testing • Leverage additive manufacturing techniques • Perform Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) 5. Adhere to Compliance Requirements • Agency (FDA, UL, CE, etc.) • Environmental (RoHS, REACH, WEEE, etc.) 6. Deploy scalable business systems • Implement to support smooth ramp • Centralize data early to improve designs and communications
    21. 21. New Product Introduction 7 Best Practices 7. Learn from Prototype and Pilot Builds • Costs escalate rapidly through NPI • Incorporate design changes before ramping

    25. 25. Requirements for Manufacturing Supply Chain Excellence • Deliver products  High quality  On-time delivery  The right quantities  At the lowest possible cost • Supply chain of excellence  Requires product lifecycle management  Collaborative access 24/7 anywhere in the world  Secure  Needs vary at different product lifecycles • Need a system that will scale with you (up or down)
    26. 26. How do you Securely Grow your Supply Chain? • Look at your collaboration processes • Look at the logistics of product data movements • Map out your security • Find the weak spots • Shoot for quick wins • Remember we live in a real world
    27. 27. Three Goals of Implementing Product Lifecycle Management for your Supply Chain • Solve Problems with your entire supply chain • Electronic approvals • Easy Access • Protect your IP! • Users should only see what they need to see • Easy to manage • 24/7 availability • Fast access to data: single click approvals • Easy to learn and use Collaboration Security Speed
    28. 28. Typical Problems You May Find • Email or regular phone calls • Problems partners discover are not always communicated • Product changes are sent inconsistently • Forward visibility into product changes is inconsistent • Supplier Access to Product Data is via email/FTP package a Document Control Manager builds manually • Lots of ad-hoc processes • Quality issues pile up • Email • FTP • VPN access for suppliers • Limited / difficult access audit trail • Difficult to manage over time enables suppliers to have access to designs and plans unrelated to their parts • Disconnected data • Product data easily stolen • Email build and change packages take time to create. • Need to decide where to send it – sits on desk • Email build and change packages take time to unpack and understand • Changes require the above loop to repeat • Frequent ad hoc requests for information go unanswered until the office opens the next day • Exporting the latest BOM requires engineering assistance • Long delays due documentation Collaboration Security Speed
