Capability Maturity Assessments

From nearly twenty years of research, PLM Capability Maturity Assessments, and PLM Best Practice Benchmarking, we have developed a substantial library of PLM Best Practices, PLM Process Benchmarks and PLM Capability Maturity Models. Our library can be exploited to:

  1. Enable a more comprehensive analysis and comparison of your Product Lifecycle processes and tools
  2. Establish a more highly refined set of improvement objectives - set new targets for design
  3. Establish a measurable ROI for improvement
  4. Optimize your selection of PLM and enabling applications            
  5. Establish a refined set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) across your product lifecycle to ensure your ability to effectively measure your performances and drive ongoing improvements
