Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The cPDM market in France is observing the development of smart factories across its industries. There is a shift from the real manufacturing world to the digital manufacturing world, enabling companies to digitally plan and execute the life cycle of a product. Smart machines are installed factories that perform the entire production process without any human intervention. In addition, cPDM solutions are also used in smart factories for product and process life cycle management.”
According to the report, the implementation of cPDM solutions enables effective coordination among production units and suppliers, provides insight on BOM, and helps companies analyze the impact of supplier cost on the final product cost. All production units such as purchasing, manufacturing, design, engineering, and quality have access to supplier information though cPDM. The integration of supply chain and cPDM solutions will help companies in making purchase decisions and supplier analytics. Even before the product design stage, the engineer decides on product specifications. Through the implementation of cPDM solutions, specifications are introduced to suppliers and suppliers carry out a detailed study and describe the feasibility of the product specifications.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the use of ERP software as a collaboration tool in several companies across industries in France.
