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
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

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
Optional: cloud hosting specifications and costing
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
Quality plan and testing strategy
The project manager ensures the successful planning and the flawless execution to deliver on time and within budget.
The solution architect is responsible for analyzing and translating business information and technical requirements into the architecture and design of the solution.
The functional consultant documents the use cases, functional specifications, test plans and scenarios, and supports the customer’s end-users throughout the project implementation and deployment.
The business consultant is responsible for supporting the customer in capturing and defining its business needs and organizes and leads workshops with the business stakeholders to document the business processes.
The software architect defines the software architecture enabling the successful implementation of the solution, such that it suits the business requirements and achieves the desired results under given constraints.
The infrastructure architect investigates and analyzes the feasibility of the system requirements, develops the targeted system specifications and is responsible for defining the right infrastructure to secure the deployment of the business solution implementation.
