Business Strategy: Product Life-Cycle IT Application Adoption and Development in Western Europe: An IDC Survey

This IDC Manufacturing Insights study provides an analysis of our survey results from 215 interviews with manufacturers operating across Germany, the U.K., France, Italy, and Spain regarding product life-cycle IT applications. The study shows adoption levels and investment plans for four product life-cycle IT applications: CAx (computer-aided design/CAD, computer-aided manufacturing/CAM, computer-aided engineering/CAE), PDM (product data management), PLM (product life-cycle management), digital manufacturing, and warranty management.

"Product and service innovation remains high on manufacturers' priority lists," said Lorenzo Veronesi, EMEA research analyst, IDC Manufacturing Insights. "These investments will support their need to create a digital thread during the product life cycle and evaluate trade-offs among critical financial, performance, marketing, and manufacturing criteria."
