Can Siemens Make PLM Fun with HD-PLM?

Share

I  had the chance to talk with … the Siemens PLM team earlier this week at their PLM Connection user’s conference. There are more announcements than I can cover here in one post, so I will concentrate on one major announcement – HD-PLM (High Definition PLM). Siemens is making a significant investment in modernizing the PLM experience with HD PLM. How will it help manufacturers get more from their PLM investment? And from a users’ perspective, can it give the PLM experience a boost to help this valuable corporate tool become a little more fun to work with?

The Announcement

To start, HD-PLM is more than just user experience. It is a new technology framework designed to unify the PLM experience across all of Siemens PLM’s products. In fact, it is planned to be the common client for all solutions. The interface is ( dare I say) cool, and looks like something anyone would be happy to work with. Think Web 2.0 meets PLM. Some examples:

  • Highly graphical interface and navigation paradigm – let’s face it, this is how engineers and product developer think
  • Cover flow – think iTunes-like interface to browse products)
  • Role-based workspace
  • Knowledge drill-down – think embedded visual reporting and business intelligence (BI)
  • Proactive alerts

Bust Siemens is not just focusing on user experience. “High Definition” means more than what you see. They are are also investing heavily in a more rich definition (and validation) of products, particularly around systems engineering and mechatronics. Siemens will be making a lot more of the vast information in their systems available in an easily accessible, visual way. This is no small project for Siemens, and will provide significant value to Siemens PLM customers.

Implications for Manufacturers

What does this mean to manufacturers? To keep this short and simple:

  • PLM will get more fun (and cool)
  • Siemens PLM customers can feel comfortable that Siemens is still investing significantly in the future, and will enjoy the benefits of that investment over time as the new technology is released in upgrades of the products they already own
  • Non-Siemens customers will have another reason to look at Siemens PLM products

So that’s what I hear from Siemens PLM, I hope you found it useful. What do you think? What else should I have asked them? I expect to hear a lot more about this in the future, I look forward to sharing it here.

  1. Siemens, once again, has watched TV and taken consumer electronics marketing lingo and applied it to master/detail screens of CAD and PLM metadata.

  2. Siemens, once again, leads the way in PLM innovation; not only understanding multi-management space, but also, the user requirements in every aspect of production. I every client situation I’m in, Siemens always deserves a hard look at their solution offering.
