Download results from the 2007 Arena PLM Project Collaboration Study
Earlier this year Arena Solutions launched Project Collaboration, a revolutionary extension to Arena PLM that enables product teams to answer mission-critical questions such as “When will my product ship?” and “Where should I focus to avoid delays?”
The main driver for this extension was feedback received from our customer base and the results of a study conducted earlier this year. In this survey of more than 150 mid-market product companies, Arena Solutions found that 92 percent of respondents had severe impediments hampering their new product introduction process.
Key threats to the timely execution of product-related projects include:
- Poor coordination and communication across product teams (66 percent).
- Lack of visibility into constraints and bottlenecks (59 percent).
- Lack of infrastructure for standardizing processes and refining best practices (55 percent).
- Difficulty including suppliers and partners in project planning and execution (48 percent).
