Project Description:
Process and system harmonization in the area of Product Data Management targeting towards SAP PLM 7.0x as PLM tool.
From a total of four different solutions in the area of PDM the requirement for a new, integrated PDM system to be used by all Philips CL business groups emerged. SAP PLM was set and available in releases 7.01 and higher for extensive prototyping. Two further leading PLM systems were evaluated as alternatives.

12/2008 - 7/2009 Philips Healthcare, Eindhoven, Netherlands – Agile IS Implementation
International Medical Equipment Producer

Project Description:
Implementation of Agile Product Collaboration as a central PLM solution embedded into a SAP system landscape for different plants of the Imaging Systems division of Philips Health Care.
To enable the “Design Anywhere – Build Anywhere“ concept (DABA) it became necessary to establish a common data basis for product master data in design and engineering departments. The Agile PLM solution, which was already used independently in some of the Business Units, was chosen to fulfill this need. During the roll outs into the different Business Units product data (materials, BOMs, documents and associated changes) had to be taken over from different source systems (mainly SAP). At the same time interfaces were required to serve the central SAP logistics system permanently with data from engineering.
Next to the individual production BOMs of the plants an engineering BOM copy was implemented on the SAP site to gain transparency and ensure a continuous process.

• Specification, test and implementation of tools to support the engineering change management process (in SAP)
