Setup Future-proof Product Lifecycle Management!

Product Lifecycle Management

The Enabler of Tomorrow's Business.

Managing product and system data across the complete product lifecycle and all added-value areas is gaining importance. With a 360 degree perspective on products, processes, organization and IT, UNITY leads your PLM projects and PDM projects to success. Our supplier-neutral role guarantees independence and objectivity. We successfully set up your Product Lifecycle Management for the product development of the future. Together with you, we develop your PLM strategy, evaluate your PLM systems, support you in the selection and introduction of PLM systems, qualify your PLM team and advise you on the Digital Twin in the R&D process.

Masterplan of Action (MoA) for Engineering Excellence

We have designed a Master Plan of Action (MoA) for Engineering Excellence as a scalable and robust framework to measurably transform your company’s engineering. Starting from the as-is state, strategies and a target vision are designed that shape your processes, products and technologies, the organization and engineering IT as well as future business models. The achievement of  goals is ensured by providing concrete descriptions of capabilities and use cases in the form of implementation specifications. These are the starting point for a business case (Online Seminar Webinar PLM Business Case).

Thus, the Master Plan of Action focuses on answering the questions of “Why, what, and how" in digital transformation. You can also benefit from this.
