LNS Research provides executives a platform for accessing unbiased research and benchmark data to improve business performance
The LNS Research Blog provides an informal environment for analysts to share thoughts and insights directly with our community on a range of technology and business topics
This LNS Research article discusses recently published industrial content. The round-up for this week includes topics such as advancements in offshore wind energy, ROI of big data for manufacturers, product lifecycle management (PLM) as it relates to quality, and developing centralized energy management.
In our previous blog, we discussed the relationship between Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and the cost of quality. In this blog, we’ll take a look into how PLM is now, more than ever, being used to improve quality management across processes. Moreover, we’ll discuss how interoperability between traditional PLM and Quality Management System capabilities moves an organization towards a closed-loop quality management system.
We’ve been writing a lot about the benefits of increasing communication and collaboration by breaking down traditional functional barriers in manufacturing. When searching for the solution to a problem, collective knowledge is almost always the better choice. Manufacturing software and IT advancements are highlighting the fact that compartmentalizing information, or keeping it in what many refer to as silos, is inefficient and often results in sub-optimal decisions.
Earlier this week, LNS Research attended the Siemens PLM Connection 2012 Americas User Conference where enhancements in the Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) space were the focal point. The event, running from May 7-9, opened discussion for recent changes in the industry and also highlighted several of Siemens’ current and future projects. Starting off with first-hand experiences from customers such as Boeing, Honeywell, GM, and more, presentations on emerging products and processes were later given by leaders in the Siemens organization.
