HAN VET HUR ”PLM-SLIPSTENEN” SKA DRAS.
Det är idag knappast intressant att bara sälja in nya programlösningar i parti och minut. Den tiden är försvunnen, säger Dick Nyström, ansvarig för strategisk affärsutveckling i IDEAL GRP, Europas största enskilda PLM- och automationspartner till Siemens Digital Industries, i dagens artikel på PLM&ERP News.
Dagens företag vill ha lösningar som gör att helheten i produktframtagningskedjan fungerar, konstaterar Nyström. Bara en mjukvara, eller bara en konsulttjänst, löser kanske inte problemet, utan här kan man behöva nytt helhetstänkande, etablera ny metodik och bygga lösningsorienterat nätverkande, där flera aktörer tillsammans kan lösa utmaningar eller problem.
– Vi talar om sånt som digitala tvillingar och trådar, IIoT, produktionssimulering, lågkod-baserade appar och processhantering, som knyter ihop och ger kontroll över tillverkningen. Sånt kräver förståelse för hur det hela ska och kan sjösättas i verkligheten på verkstadsgolvet och då anpassat till varje kunds eller användares individuella behov. Det är vi på partnersidan som känner kunderna och vet vad som kan förbättras och hur det ska göras för att skapa bra produktionsekonomi hos dem, säger Nyström.
