Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 4 - Comparing 3 Vendors


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. In this part of the article we review 3 vendors who offer products to the PLM market - IDe, Thetis, and PDMware - as a demonstration that selecting the appropriate solution is highly dependant on the prioritized needs of the business.

Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 2: A Timesaving Solution


Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not quite a viable possibility, almost every product can win provided a certain set of requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right opportunity in this ongoing 'dating game'.

weighted average  is as follows:   Weighted Average = Sum of ( [Priority] * [Rating] ) for the entire set of end level criteria. For the baseline scenario all priorities are set equal, thus the priorities amongst siblings are the same at every level in the Decision Hierarchy. The Figure 5 below illustrates the priorities in the baseline scenario.
