Cross-functional approach to PLM.
Selcom Group applies a cross-functional team approach:
- R&D Engineering: The product lifecycle requires extreme efficiency; R&D support services are focused on minimizing cycle time without loss of quality through all the product implementation stages.
- Purchasing: The Selcom Group PLM process streamlines supply base management by allowing an OEM to address all project requirements through a single source.
- Senior management: Cost reduction also involves minimization of internal resources by optimizing the team's skills throughout the product's lifecycle.
Selcom supports every stage of a product's lifecycle:
- Product conception
- Pilot test stages to validate the product
- Stages of growth and maturity
- Decline stage
- Product upgrades or proposed generational substitutes
- Repairs over time
