Program / Project Management

Providing project dashboards that give real-time visibility into a project’s status in terms of schedule, resources, process and costs.

Delivering a new product to the market needs a strong backbone to ensure consistency along the development and production time. Consumer goods manufacturers must manage complex collaboration involving internal and external teams of prospects, customers, suppliers and partners from the start of the project to launch and post launch so that product market success can be sustained throughout its lifecycle.

Consumer goods organizations must concentrate critical resources on the most profitable projects while standardizing on business processes across the extended enterprise. Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Enterprise Program / Project Management solution provides project dashboards that give real-time visibility into a project’s status in terms of schedule, resources, process and costs.  This collaborative project management solution dramatically increases the productivity of globally distributed users by executing projects and programs with real-time information that is updated automatically through direct links to business processes, tasks, documents, deliverables and other data sources.

Our solution enables companies to optimize staffing plans with real-time utilization reports to assess availability of key skills across all projects and drive a phased-based decision making process using best-in-class process templates with predefined phases, gates and milestones.  The increase of product development complexity combined with a more widely distributed product development team has fueled the demand for solutions that will help companies in their transition from traditional linear processes to solutions that support parallel development. Advances in data collection, collaboration, and analysis tools allow teams to work together and share information more effectively.

As in any product in the consumer goods industry, a lot of times there is a need to change the definition of the product after it has been launched.  This solution can help you with product revamp or relaunch projects as well as new product introduction projects.
