Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)


In a globally competitive market, there is an increasing amount of pressure to manage new product introductions within very short time spans. Today’s mechatronic environment and the need for mass customization increases complexity manifold.


Consistent product data is an enabler and an important key for digitalization. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is crucial here to master these challenges and prepare your company for the future of digitalization.

The PLM solution is the foundation for product related communication and is source of information for engineering, production, sales, service and for customers as well as suppliers.


The documented benefits of SAP PLM are:

  • Reduced time to market
  • Increased number of product launches
  • Reduction of product lifecycle costs
  • Visibility of market potential using integrated product portfolio management
  • Savings through complete integration of engineering workflows and by streamlining the handover between R&D and manufacturing
  •  Significant reduction in administrative and commodity daily work thereby allowing to focus on actual innovation

EXA PPM is a unique solution that enables companies to establish a consolidated cost, profit and quantity perspective across the entire product portfolio within the product development, which is beneficial in multiple ways, but especially for consolidation and transparency purposes.

In our environment, the time to market is steadily decreasing while the amount of projects increases at the same time. A proportional increase of employees is not expedient. Hence, it is important to us to establish tools which make our processes leaner and easier to execute. By using the EXA-customized SAP PPM, we were able to create a solution which supports our employees to focus on their main task, developing innovative products and avoid spending their time by filling numerous different reporting slides.

Especially the management and supporting functions benefit from one reliable data source, which reflects all customer projects driven globally, on region or plant level across all customers. This comprehensive overview is absolutely unique and innovative and enabled through the EXA PPM solution.

The EXA team provided us with technical consultants that have a very high level of expertise and an eagerness to enable their customers success by supporting them extensively throughout the entire project. Their dedication and ingenuity made this project a success story.“
