This IDC Manufacturing Insights study provides an analysis of our survey results regarding product life-cycle IT applications in the Western European manufacturing industry.

The survey is based on 404 interviews with firms operating across Germany, the U.K., France, Italy, and Spain.

In this study, we show adoption levels and investment plans for four product life-cycle IT applications:

  • CAx (computer-aided design — CAD, computer-aided manufacturing — CAM, computer-aided engineering — CAE)
  • PDM (product data management)
  • PLM (product life-cycle management)
  • Digital manufacturing

"Product and service innovation is climbing manufacturing C-levels' priority list," said Lorenzo Veronesi, EMEA research analyst, IDC Manufacturing Insights. "To support their innovation process, manufacturers are pursuing a strategy of selective investments, particularly focused on new PDM applications and CAx upgrades."
