Working closely with the HVM Catapult, Hewlett-Packard Has developed software that provides a ‘template’ for the ramp-up and scaling of factories – product lifecycle management software.
Takes product through from concept, design, development, manufacture, service support and product retirement. Normally a system such as this is the province of large companies.
Working with MTC and a range of smaller businesses H-P have understood the requirements of smaller businesses and are developing more accessible and affordable PLM systems (out of the box software). This will allow SME’s to benefit from effective systems that fully integrate with their bigger customers.
