PLM Blueprint

PLM Blueprint

Processia PLM Blueprinting projects deliver a detailed PLM program definition and planning aligned with the core business vision and answering the key business challenges.

Assessment activities are grouped in 5 streams of focus to define a complete picture of the PLM landscape and define the most optimal implementation strategy.

Processia Blueprinting framework is leveraging well-proven standards such as:

  • Business process hierarchy and classification
  • Use-case registry
  • Gap-fit analysis
  • High-level design for gap mitigation


Value Enablement and Scalability

  • Identify business vision and challenges
  • Identify business value and justifications
  • Assess code customization and provide recommendations for scalable solution
  • Scalable upgrade strategy accounting for Dassault product roadmap

Risk averse implementations

  • Provide proposal for fixed price and low risk turnkey implementation
  • Accurate schedule integrating client resources
  • Assess and identify code customization conflicts and re-work proposals
  • For upgrades, assess needs for client data uplift to latest schema, risk identification and mitigation recommendations

Co-Engagement for Alignment and Efficiency

  • Provide optional co-engagement models and 3rd party management approach within a common governance model
  • Leverage and integrate customer skill sets and capabilities for full alignment and a cost-efficient project plan
  • Processia is integrated with Dassault Systèmes for a fully scalable solution

Change Management Facilitation

  • What’s-new demo and business impacts identification
  • Business users transition plan recommendations


Business Transformation Assessment

  • Targeted interviews for accurate identification of business challenges and definition of a business vision for PLM
  • Definition of PLM Program objectives, KPI and key success factors
  • Continuous tracking of program success through KPI/KSF and mitigation with support of a governance model
  • Business impact assessment through stakeholder analysis and high level impact assessment aligned with the to-be solution definition
  • Business transition plan defining OCM activities such as training and communications

Key outputs

  • Business challenges and vision for PLM
  • PLM Program KPIs and KSFs
  • Governance model
  • Business impact assessments
  • Business transition plan

Functional Assessment

  • 3DEXPERIENCE core business team enablement sessions through industry best practices process and hands-on demonstrations of capabilities
  • Streamlined efficient business workshops for comprehensive scoping of PLM capabilities needs and underlying as-is challenges and requirements
  • Mapping of requirements vs capabilities and associated gap-fit analysis
  • High level design proposals for gap mitigation focusing on out-of-the-box configuration capabilities and product roadmap for an optimal scalable solution
  • Business value assessment for PLM program justification and served as input for ROI calculation
  • PLM Program Roadmap with justification of dependencies/constraints and roll-out of business changes

Key outputs

  • Enablement: hands-on 3DEXPERIENCE industry best practices process and capabilities demonstration
  • Use-case registry: PLM-required capabilities, mapping to out-of-the-box and gap-fit analysis
  • High level design: mitigation of gaps
  • Opportunities and business value assessment

Technical Assessment

  • Focused interviews for accurate as-is systems landscape review and scoping of the to-be systems landscape definition and associated interfaces requirements
  • As-is data assessment for accurate scoping of data migration needs
  • High level design of optimal strategy for systems integration and data migration needs
  • For 3DEXPERIENCE upgrades blueprints: as-is code assessment through automated customization analysis and comparison with out-of-the-box evolution for identification of conflicts and complexity with associated upgrade recommendations. As-is data assessment and documentation of the “Data uplift/Conversion” playbook with identification of potential risks associated to existing customization and out-of-the-box data model changes

Key outputs

  • As-is vs. to-be systems landscapes
  • Systems interfaces registry
  • Data migration registry
  • High level design: strategy for interfaces and data migration
  • Upgrade specifics: code analysis with conflicts and complexity highlights and associated recommendations. Data conversion/uplift playbook and highlight of associated risks with mitigation proposal


Infrastructure Assessment

  • Targeted interviews gathering infrastructure requirements (i.e.: users concurrency, technology preferences, users geographical distribution, high availability needs and disaster tolerances, etc.)
  • Optimal Infrastructure sizing based on customer requirements, product requirements and scalability forecasts
  • Optional cloud-hosted solution specification, sizing and costing
  • Optional fail-over and monitoring strategy and mechanism specifications
  • Optional turnkey infrastructure managed services with guaranteed SLA and availabilities level

Key outputs

  • Infrastructure sizing/specifications
  • Optional: cloud hosting specifications and costing
  • Optional: infrastructure managed services proposal

Project Assessment

Wrap-up of all blueprint streams resulting into a detailed PLM Program definition including:

  • Roadmap and roll-out strategies
  • Detailed work packages scoping and RACI
  • Accurate program execution schedule
  • Risk registry and mitigation
  • Governance model
  • Quality plan and testing strategy
