In this blog, I’ll share an experience where I was involved in a PLM Improvement initiative for a large discrete manufacturing company. The existing Oracle Agile PLM implementation had mixed results with regards to adoption, process improvement and data accessibility. While the implementation was successful from a technical perspective, there have been some business process, data integrity and usability issues that have prevented them from getting optimal results.
As part of the improvement workshops, Xavor interviewed the key business users to identify the issues related to process, training and technology. For example, the common themes identified in the Change Management process were:
Too many clicks to navigate through changes and their affected items and attachments
Cumbersome navigation to review all the approved users and their signoff history
As Xavor’s Managing Consultant, Hassan Sheikh has over 16 years of experience working with Oracle Agile PLM. He has extensively worked with large enterprise companies within the semiconductor, high-tech and medical device verticals.
