Plexus Online Offers Product-Lifecycle-Management Capabilities

December 1, 2008

Plexus Systems, Auburn Hills, MI, provider of Plexus Online on-demand software for the manufacturing enterprise, announces the availability of fully integrated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) functionality.

Plexus Online integrates PLM functions into shop-floor and quality modules, enabling a real-time, continuous-feedback loop between engineering/design, manufacturing and quality. Manufacturers use integrated product data to move from product conception and design to feasibility validation, optimized cost and performance, and product compliance, according to company officials.

As an example, when a Plexus Online manufacturing company receives product-engineering specification changes, the updated specifications flow through shop floor, production, materials requirement planning, and other business process areas. This ensures that produced parts are in compliance and meet updated customer requirements. The result is a streamlined product-development process and reduced time to market.

With Plexus Online, information is captured at the point of origin and processed in real-time. Customer requirements along with development and change records flow seamlessly into production operations and financial reports. The entire manufacturing supply chain has access to real-time data about product programs, and can better manage the complexities of launching new products, improve collaboration, and cut project and product costs.
