P&G Upgrades PLM Platform
Procter & Gamble is using Dassault Systemes’ 3DExperience platform. P&G is deploying “Perfect Product” and “Perfect Package” industry solutions to help connect thousands of users to data, colleagues and consumers. The move is expected to accelerate and improve the company’s packaging and product design, requirements management and program management.
P&G manages 10 product categories and 65 brands in more than 80 countries. The platform will help leverage P&G’s scale for greater agility to innovate, efficiently manage and accelerate product programs in the context of short product lifecycles, fluctuating costs of raw materials, and highly variable consumer demand.
“Our decision to upgrade our existing Dassault Systemes’ PLM [product lifecycle management tool] to the 3DExperience platform is part of our work to digitally transform our business to support our work-process digital transformation and drive value,” said Jean-Louis Hospitel, P&G's IT director. “The ... platform facilitates end-to-end innovation integration and improved user experience for our seamless technical community.”
The solution is being extended across P&G to 18,000 users in research and development, product supply, quality and other disciplines to support product design and development.
P&G ranks 2nd on CGT's list of Top 100 Consumer Goods Companies for 2016.
