One Windchill PLM: Ingersoll Rand's Successful Journey
Are you thinking about replacing multiple Windchill PLM Systems with one enterprise system? Are you envisioning to have a single source for all of your engineering data shared across multiple locations, locally or globally? If your answer to either of these questions is affirmative then learn more. The presenter shared the story of Ingersoll Rand's vision of consolidating 49 factories, 5 PLM systems, and more than 30 change processes all into One Windchill PLM system. The presenter discussed the strengths, challenges and opportunities identified during the 4 year journey that may lay the groundwork for your organization to achieve similar success. The ability to leverage existing global engineering designs, to save engineering time by looking at existing parts and to have a common repository to be able to do that not only speeds up innovation but also helps in achieving operational excellence. The presenter also talked about the cross functional alignment, evolution of the deployment methodology, and best practices developed while realizing Ingersoll Rand's philosophy of "Design Anywhere, Build Anywhere" using one Windchill PLM system and common processes across all the global manufacturing locations.
