Ann Arbor, MI, August 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm and PDT Europe, announce that executives from Safran Helicopter Engines, will make a keynote presentation at PLM Road Map™ for the Aerospace & Defense Industry in collaboration with PDT Europe. This three-day event will be held November 8-10 at The Renaissance Paris, La Defense.
Safran Helicopter Engines is the world's leading manufacturer of gas turbine engines for both civil and military helicopters. With the PLM requirements of a large company and the financial constraints of a medium company, implementing a full lifecycle PLM solution from design-to-manufacture-to-service has posed special challenges. One strategy that helped was the application of a single enterprise solution across all programs.
The single enterprise solution works well for day-to-day activities. People are able to collaborate, data is stored on a single system, and you can assume that you are in a good position to prepare for the future. But what happens when you want/need to upgrade it? On top of the technical aspects, there are several important issues that are crucial to success: Is there an optimal launch window for an integration project? What are the cultural barriers? How do we get senior management onboard?
In this keynote address, “A 15-Year PLM Journey at Safran Helicopter Engines …. And What Should Happen Next,” the authors, Lorenzo Pons, Head of the Design Methods & Tools department / Engineering Process IT Urbanization Leader and Eric Laffargue, Engineering Process IS Urbanization Leader, will highlight the challenges, strategies, and lessons learned from the company’s PLM journey over the last 15-years. The presentation will also consider the imperative need to transform the current way of doing things if the industry is to succeed in its digital transformation.
PLM Road Map 2016 for the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Industry in collaboration with PDT Europe is the must-attend event for A&D industry executives and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the A&D industry germinate and take root.
