What Is Oracle PLM for Industrial Manufacturing?

You are under intense pressure to become more nimble, innovative, sustainable, and cost efficient. Legacy systems can no longer provide adequate support as you transform your product development processes to build a competitive advantage through technology.

Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) provides a modern innovation platform, enabling you to optimize product design and development. With the latest PLM advancements, industrial manufacturers can drive more efficient execution and accelerate profitable growth.

  • Complex Configured Products
    Oracle PLM solutions provide the foundation for engineer-to-order and configure-to-order processes. Build an integrated, automated environment to manage complex configurations to respond quickly to customer demands for mass customization, improve “to order” sales and manufacturing processes, and optimize new product development resources.
  • Collaborative Concept-to-Release
    Improve productivity and lower costs by automating a highly collaborative concept-to-release process. Introduce products to market that meet functional design requirements and balance cost, quality, and compliance. Manage your extensive product definition, including options and variants, from the authoring to the transaction environments.
  • Insight-Driven Innovation
    Pursue innovation in the right business context. Before committing investment dollars, you should know how a proposal fits your strategy and resource constraints. Gain insight to objectively evaluate ideas and balance your portfolio with breakthrough innovations and sustainable growth initiatives.
  • Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
    Approach product design and development as a virtual, comprehensive, domain model-based system, while ensuring that every initial requirement is met in the final product. Quickly and thoroughly evaluate system requirements against concept designs and seamlessly integrate MBSE into requirements management as well as system architecture and test management.

    By breaking down customer needs into lower-level requirements and coordinating across disciplines, you can optimize design trade-offs, impact analyses, and verification and validation. Oracle PLM uniquely integrates the system engineering process with the product development, quality, sourcing, and supply chain product record processes.
  • Model-Based Definition
    Reduce costs, eliminate redundancy, and reduce complexity by eliminating 2D drawings and accessing 3D models. Oracle PLM enables you to provide universal access to design information without jeopardizing intellectual property. Critical product and manufacturing annotations can be streamed to users, allowing them to interact with the 3D model—and provide feedback.
  • Project Management
    Accelerate innovation projects and craft a high-performing product portfolio. With Oracle PLM, you get tightly synchronized project management to maximize product throughput. Improve team and resource management with powerful tools that find best-fit project resources and skills to keep your people engaged and motivated. Allow teams to collaboratively manage all work in one place to consolidate and automate completion so you know when deliverables will be done. Manage project schedules on the go, worldwide, with intuitive, integrated, mobile scheduling tools.
  • Enterprise Quality Management
    Support your corporate culture of quality by making quality information and issues visible to all stakeholders throughout the product lifecycle. Oracle delivers a closed-loop, configurable quality management solution that is tightly integrated with the product record, allowing quick resolution of product quality issues, better regulatory compliance, enhanced customer satisfaction, and reduced material costs. Ensure complete traceability to monitor product safety and react faster.
  • Regulatory Compliance and Sustainability
    Mitigate compliance risk in your engineering process without suppressing the rate or quality of innovation. Design compliance and sustainability measures into your products early with closed-loop compliance management for global or regional measures such as REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals or even your own corporate compliance standards. Achieve full compliance to safeguard current revenue while developing a competitive advantage for long-term growth.
  • Connected Supply Chain
    Share information across the supply chain in a secure, collaborative network. Gain greater visibility and alignment with supply chain partners to enhance global manufacturing, cost management, and accountability. With higher digital connectivity, you can analyze concept designs against the ability to achieve requirements, target costs, improve on-target performance, capture more innovations, and identify supply chain risks.
  • Analytics
    Make more informed product decisions with role-based, actionable insight at any stage of the product lifecycle. Embedded analytics empower decision-makers with relevant information so that they can proactively take steps to improve product performance.
  • Cloud

    Choose the right deployment model that fits your business requirements. Oracle PLM Cloud uniquely offers world-class PLM backed by all the innovations, efficiencies, and cost savings of Oracle Cloud—with the security of your own private database.

    Oracle is committed to providing best-in-class PLM solutions in the right deployment option for your business: PLM on Oracle Cloud, managed cloud, or on premises. Trust Oracle to help transform your product development processes to fit your business needs and ROI expectations.
