The linear supply chain becomes an ecosystem in which multiple actors interact. In this network, suppliers, producers and retailers have a real-time access to information, in order to improve production and increase business.
The correct use of the information created in the manufacturing phase generates added value for the whole supply chain. The real-time access to information of the whole supply chain and the possibility of cross-checking them with demand analysis and orders and shipping progress reports are crucial.
The integration of operational technology with information technology, and of mobile solutions with advanced analysis provides employees with a wider view on all the operations and a more dynamic, real-time view on their own activities.

PLM means having a complete and dynamic vision on the product, from its concept to the distribution. Over the last few years, the need for integration and fast communication within the area of product development has dramatically increased. This is why PLM evolves into a tool for the organization of project-related activities, which involves internal and external workers – even unspecialized workers. Within this new “enterprise” vision, PLM helps control timing, costs and quality of the development of new products, thus increasing the efficacy and efficiency of project-related activities.
