Enterprise Project Management

Delivering a new product to the market needs a strong backbone to ensure consistency along the development and production time. Consumer packaged 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 packaged goods organizations must concentrate critical resources on the most profitable projects while standardizing on business processes across the extended enterprise. Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Enterprise Project Management solution provides project dashboards that gives 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-base 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 packaged goods industry, a lot of times there is a need to add or change product formula or packaging after the product has been launched.  This solution can help you with product revamp or relaunch projects as well as new product introduction projects.
