The introduction of digitalization, Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 technologies and approaches is increasing the need for full Product Lifecycle Management. More detailed information is required for the inception of concepts such as the digital twin and the digital thread in Cyber Physical Systems.

As customer demand continues to become more dynamic and less predictable, New Product Development and Introduction has to become faster, more effective and more efficient. PLM best practices and tools allow manufacturers to meet these challenges.

What do we do?

ATS helps manufacturers to improve their Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) by following PLM Best Practices:

  • Providing standards and guidelines
  • Capturing and categorizing exemplars
  • Providing rich interpersonal communications and coordination
  • Mapping information flows and sources



ATS integrates these best practices with PLM tools such as:

  • Computer Aided Design and Engineering (CAD/CAE)
  • Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) and Simulation
  • Engineering Data Management (EDM)
  • Product Data Management (PDM)
  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)

How do we do it?

ATS helps manufacturers to:

  • Find PLM initiatives to support corporate objectives

  • See beyond functional barriers

  • Identify decisions that are sub-optimal

  • Stretch change muscle

The result is in an integrated, information-driven approach comprising people, processes/practices, and technology in all aspects of a product’s life, from its creative design through manufacturing, deployment and maintenance, culminating in the product’s removal from service and final disposal. By trading product information for wasted time, energy, and material across the entire organization and into the supply chain, PLM from ATS drives the next generation of lean thinking.
