Companies today are pursuing increasingly ambitious strategic objectives, regarding the quality of the product, the control of production costs and above all the reduction of "time to market". Information technology has such a key role in transforming the mode of production, in fact, to the now consolidated support in automation design (CAD) and production, are flanked by techniques and tools of project management, for the competitive product design and the process for the analysis of quality requirements (Quality Function Deployment). Thanks to the existing IT tools, can be stored large amounts of information by structuring them in a manner best suited to the various fields (Document Management), and can also be easily managed the flow of documents between the areas of work and the same workflow. Having a single electronic environment in which manage all this information is the path on which, both large and small businesses, with different problems and needs, are moving.
The management of the life cycle of products PLM (Product Lifecycle Management), is a data management system that allows the integration of data, processes, business systems and, ultimately, people, to create an extended enterprise. PLM enables you to manage in an efficient and economical way this information along the entire life cycle of a product from conception to design and from production to disposal. Within the PLM we find a key element for product data management: PDM (Product Data Management), able to compete in those who use it within the proposed new scenarios, from the market, from production technologies and competitors. PJM sees PLM as an IT strategy and simultaneously as a business strategy. As IT strategy, it can create a coherent data structure by consolidating systems; as company strategy, it enables global organizations to work as a single team to design, build, support and retire products, acquiring best practices and methodologies that have proven most efficient during the route. It allows the company to take unified and informed decisions at every stage of the product life cycle. Lately they were born several specific systems for product data management (PDM) can provide an organization of the data and specific features to support the needs of different organizations: marketing, design, factory technology, production , logistics, sales and technical assistance.
We at PJM believe that the computerization of the processes is not enough, because limit to reproduce the processes in digital form to enable an incremental improvement; digitizing, ie, intersecting digitally stages of conception, implementation or use, you can transform the digital knowledge fabric in a proactive agent for the business promotion. With fully automated digital enterprise, PJM guarantees the customer that decides to get closer to this reality, to have everything he need to start or respond to innovation; remaining in this light, our reality marries the PDM system. This system has the task of providing the right information at the right time, in the desired format and to the right people, by enabling the entire organization to produce products at a lower cost, with better quality and faster. Under this name are well sold products with completely different features and functionality; It ranges from simple scanning systems of documents, to the most sophisticated tools can also manage the document lifecycle, with versions and configurations tailored to customer needs.The importance of understanding what the various systems are able to offer and what are the benefits that they can give, goes hand in hand with the customer's needs, so PJM, thanks to their skills, is able to offer a service comprehensive and tailored to each company.
