Transform Yourself and Your Organization to be Data-Driven

As an Administrator, you regularly face tight deadlines, changing priorities and insufficient resources. You’re already using tools like PTC’s Windchill to improve collaboration across the organization throughout the product’s lifecycle. Now, you’re finding that smart, connected products are becoming the norm, which means the data generated throughout the product’s lifecycle no longer ends once it’s shipped. A study by Aberdeen Group shows over 47% of manufacturers stating they must become “data-driven” to survive in the increasingly complex world of manufacturing. New IoT technologies enable companies to capture and leverage information about a product’s performance during operation, which can help improve existing and future products.

LiveWorx offers valuable information on how to harness the power of the Internet of Things to become data-driven, improve your processes and launch better products on-time and on-budget. Don’t be left behind the “data-driven” trend!

At LiveWorx, you’ll learn more about:

  • Trends in smart, connected manufacturing
  • Features of Windchill 11, the first smart, connected PLM solution, including a robust search capability to reuse product data, and requirements traceability to integrate ALM and PLM functionality
