MHP, a consultancy specializing in digital solutions for the mobility and manufacturing industry, has officially joined LeanIX’s ecosystem of partners. It’s a move poised to help both companies — each offering complementary solutions for aligning IT and business — extend collaborative forms of enterprise architecture management (EAM) to more organizations worldwide.
It’s overwhelming — or is it paralyzing? — to think about what actually goes into product lifecycle management (PLM). As a methodology to support the upkeep of products and their data from design through to disposal, the practice of PLM demands incredible versatility and a firm grasp of nearly all moving pieces in an enterprise’s business and IT landscape. It’s about reducing risks and widening data sharing networks, synchronizing processes and creating workflow visibility — just about anything, really, to more intelligently manufacture and maintain lines of distributed products.
