TD160 - Meritor Global’s PLM Modernization Story: Cloud Transformation, Navigate & Path to IoT

In early 2017, Meritor created a program to modernize its PLM platform. The primary objective was to increase agility and prepare to rapidly adapt to increasing demands and disruption from IoT, Industry 4.0 and user experience needs. The program upgraded the Meritor PLM footprint to the latest version of Windchill, a deployment of the Thingworx Navigate platform for custom apps, and a full transformation of the infrastructure from a traditional physical model to a virtual/cloud-based environment for improved agility, scalability, optimized cost structure and to leverage various AWS services and technologies for future projects.

As a result, Meritor has expanded its PLM landscape to run multiple new technology-driven business processes within the Windchill environment and has built a roadmap driven by the increased business engagement and adoption of the system. ThingWorx Navigate has also been deployed in various scenarios from enabling strategic supplier and customer collaboration, to enhancing the user experience by creating mashups that integrate multiple sources of data into single views for day to day activities.
