PLM Implementation Effective planning and operational efficiency across your core business models is essential to ensure your investments in technology meets your return on investments. We have over 20 years of experience in this space and have perfected the PLM Implementation Strategy that includes vendor selection, implementation method, training and support. Implementation Methods – Big Bang vs. Phased Big Bang Implementation (BBI) The Big Bang implementation method is an all-in-one approach where the goal is to deploy the solution functionality to all end-users, locations, and integrations on one go-live date. With this approach, the entire company will have access to use the software simultaneously and decommission all legacy systems. Because all end-users will go live simultaneously, the BBI method will have the lowest overall cost and shortest timeline, therefore realizing your return on investment sooner. However, the big bang approach does increase the inherent risk associated with the project. It can be challenging to complete thorough testing for all groups in the naturally shorter timeline. This method may decrease your initial productivity as you work through any issues in your production system. Productivity may also be negatively affected due to the difficulty of training all employee groups before go-live. Phased Implementation (PI) The Phased Implementation consists of multiple go-lives that could be by modules, functionality, or business areas. The PI limits exposure of the new system across the organization and requires using the legacy systems until all go-lives are complete. The PI approach provides additional time to thoroughly test the system before each go-live ensuring that the new solution meets the business needs. It also provides extra time to train employees, increasing end-user productivity. However, these benefits come at the expense of a longer timeline and increased costs associated with each additional go-live. The best option will vary from organization to organization. It comes down to the preference of the business and the stakeholders in the project. It's best to consider both implementation methods and to determine the pros and cons of each.
