Read what Lippert Components has to say about their ENOVIA experience and with it, how they took on their PLM challenges and succeeded by:

  • Improving efficiencies
  • Improving access of information and sharing
  • Managing schedules more effectively

“The fact that ENOVIA has a rich web-based UI and is easily navigable has resulted in greater PLM user experience overall. Supporting the UI is a PLM foundation that will permit Lippert to manage continued growth.”

This case study of Lippert Components, Inc. is based on a June 2016 survey of ENOVIA customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

How Can You Hear the Voice of Your Customers?

Last time I talked about the connection between PLM and World Content. You can see my previous post here where I explore the connection between physical and virtual worlds.

But what about the connection between the virtual worlds we use to develop products using PLM 2.0 technologies and the virtual worlds of our customers? They are not the same.

This is should be pretty cool, right?

When I first time thought about it, my initial take was about simply analyzing and monitoring social networks. You can learn a lot by trying to search what people are saying about your product on Twitter. Try and you can discover a lot of news about your product and/or services.

But you can go and discover much more information about what you customers are saying by analyzing and monitoring different Web content. Take a look on this cool video from Calif. company Attensity.

So, what we learned. PLM has a huge potential to be connected to the outside worlds of consumers, not only by providing virtual services related to designing and manufacturing products, but, I believe, in the future also by analyzing how to listen to the voice of your end customers, the consumers of the same products.

What do you think?

Visual Complexity

Visualization is a technology to graphically represent data sets. If you will think about 2D and 3D CAD tools, they are visualizing sets of geometrical and other types of data about a product we design. This is very typical visualization for PLM world. In my view, it’s easier for people to understand information presented visually, compared to other ways like text, tables, etc.

I’m trying to explore new ways to represent information. In our modern world, the Internet, social networks and other new technological innovations create new information realities. To present them graphically is not a simple task. However, exploring these capabilities, and perhaps leveraging them in your application can be very cool and beneficial. I want to share with you a few examples of social data set representations. I hope you will find them interesting.

I’m sure you know Digg is an online social bookmarking tool that allows you to store links and share them in user communities. I think Digg’s Digg Labs is providing one of the best visualization tools for social bookmarking. Digg Pics is the latest tool that tracks the activity of images on the site with images that slide in from the left as people submit and digg them. Digg Arc displays stories, topics and containers wrapped around a sphere. Digg BigSpy places stories at the top of the screen. Digg Stack shows diggs in real time, with diggs falling from the top of the screen. Digg Swarm draws circles for stories as they’re dugg.

Another very interesting data visualization discovery I found is walk2web. I tried to discover Dassault Systémes web and found it very cool. You can see and explore much more information aggregated in very useful way.

This is only small set of possible visual representations. The power of visual representation is huge, and I see newcoming examples of possible representations almost every day. The following website Visual Complexity is an interesting opportunity to discover multiple ways to present data sets in a visual way. I encourage you to dig into this to find new ways to represent your data.

I’m looking forward to your comments and maybe your examples.

Best, Oleg
