Oxford, England. May 11 2016 -- It is now widely agreed that major business improvement projects need Executive Support from the very top of the organisation if they are to succeed.
With PLM, this kind of support has been difficult to achieve. Arguments to justify PLM development have often been based on qualitative benefits, which fail if the Directors or VPs do not understand the subject. At the end of the day, the Board wants hard facts and figures.
It is now possible to provide them. The PLMIG has tools for Project Justification and PLM Delivery that enable PLM Benefits to be shown in the accounts, where the VPs will see them. The tools enable the PLM Team to make a case for PLM that can be approved on financial grounds alone.
Full details are on the PLMIG web site, and you can request more information via Email Contact.
