Harmonization & Standardization

Achieved 30% increase in productivity by Process Harmonization and Systems Consolidation for world’s leading connectors manufacturer

Business Challenge

  • Customer had 7 sites spread globally using disconnected Intralink Systems to manage Product Data.
  • Lack of harmonized global engineering processes, data collaboration, lack of design re-use impeded the overall Product Development Process
  • Managing multiple unsupported systems had burdened the Engineering IT Support Team and the system maintenance costs were high

The Solution

  • Sconce conducted an in-depth analysis of the Intralink Systems used globally to understand the data model and the current design practices
  • Executed blueprinting Sessions to harmonize the Product Development Processes across sites and designed a common data model that addressed the business needs globally
  • Performed a very complex data migration exercise bringing in close to 8 Million data from all the 7 sites to 1 single Windchill 9.1 PDMLink instance
  • Planned the final cut-over operations accurately to avoid significant business downtime and completed the project within the stipulated period of 18 months.

Benefits

  • Retired all the legacy unsupported Intralink Sites, thereby reducing annual IT expenditure
  • Harmonized Processes and managing data at a single source improved productivity by 30% with increased design collaboration and re-use.
  • “ZERO” defects in Post Production Phase after Final cut-over helped streamline the adoption process efficiently
