Program Management

In an industry where business relationships, component interactions, and technologies that apply to every project are diverse and complex, having streamlined business processes that span the entire supply-chain is key to success. Automotive program managers are challenged to identify and minimize development risks, improve process efficiency, and ensure that resources are being consumed efficiently by the organization as new products are being developed.

Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Automotive Program Management solution provides an efficient way for automotive program managers to maintain compliance to AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) standards by managing a company's APQP process and documents. In addition, strategic activities surrounding product and program management are enhanced through the deployment of DS' V6 collaboration platform. The solution provides development teams and program managers with the tools and information needed to navigate the desired content quickly, assess project performance effectively, highlight risks and issues, while collaborating with decision makers in real time.

By utilizing powerful V6 collaboration capabilities, product and project teams located around the globe can find and address risks and issues that prevent teams from delivering complex projects to target. Leveraging 3D in both the product and project domains allows product development, project development and project managers to work closer than ever. It is this interaction that ensures teams are utilizing resources like material costs, tooling costs, engineering headcount and enterprise skills in the most effective manner. DS' Automotive Program Management solution can help you take your project and program management activity beyond workplan traking and leverage all of the intellectual capital of the firm for the purpose of delivering winning products on time, under budget and at every improving quality levels.
