Product Data Should be the Foundation

Ann Arbor, MI, October 04, 2018 --( CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, released a new eBook focused on how PLM enables digital transformation for companies in the Food & Beverage (F&B) industry.

This eBook describes how PLM enables digital transformation and why a lifecycle approach to product definition management is important to digital transformation programs. The eBook reviews how PLM affects speed to market, product cost, and product quality. It also notes how critical traceability and impact analysis processes are to digital transformation in Food & Beverage companies. It then closes with CIMdata’s viewpoint of how SpecPDM can help F&B companies successfully implement their digital transformation program.

According to Mr. Tom Gill, Practice Manager, PLM Enterprise Value & Integration, “Digital transformation is a hot topic and current trend in many industries including F&B. CIMdata believes that product data has to be at the core of any digital transformation program. A product is defined by its data, so, companies need to make sure that their investments directly affect what customers truly care about—the product. Modern product capabilities, quality, and cost are the characteristics that customers value.”
