Integrated PLM is the key to savings
Ingalls Shipbuilding identified that a PLM solution integrated with its CAD/CAM program would be a significant driver of savings. This was because a powerful PLM system that leveraged design and engineering information would be a central repository of data and would allow for greater control. It would eliminate the need for multiple programs, databases and Excel files that the company had been using for management. This would be an improvement because the existing programs were not integrated with each other and multiple support staff were required to administer the complexity.
