Customization plays an important role in PLM Implementations since one size rarely fits all. Customer adoption of PLM has often been less than ideal because some tasks are tedious and confusing to the end users. We have observed customers performing administrative tasks where such time could be more productively spent on value-added activities. We have encountered situations where customers have poor or faulty data that can cause rework or rejection. These situations could be avoided by utilizing custom checks and validations.
We can identify time savers such as report automation replacing needless hours of manual compilation. The goal is to get the best fit possible between your PLM system and organizational processes. However, it is critical to choose the right level of customization and to understand how it affects your needs, schedule and budget. xLM Solutions can help you strike the right balance so you invest wisely in customization while minimizing risk and maximizing ROI.
Your business has unique characteristics that may require software customization. Don’t be afraid of customization when it is warranted. While xLM Solutions strives to keep the solution as simple and standardized as possible, our years of experience have proven that customization can help fully satisfy the unique ways that you conduct business. We work with you to customize as appropriate using tools and techniques such as:
