The top three emerging trends driving the global PLM market in consumer goods industry according to Technavio ICT research analysts are:
- Increased use of PLM mobile applications
- High adoption of synchronous technology
- Use of integrated packaging in packaged consumer goods sector
Increased use of PLM mobile applications
The introduction of PLM software as mobile applications is gaining popularity among consumer goods manufacturing companies. These mobile applications increase the mobility and ease of access of PLM software in consumer goods manaufacturing companies. The apps help the companies to track performance, with the use of prototypes and samples of products such as clothing, footwear, and hard goods. It also reduces the cost and brings quality to the market faster.
Some of the major PLM mobile applications and their providers are Manufacturing 360, Tecnomatix 360, Capture It. These apps include features such as demo videos, case studies and blog posts. These products help in streamlining the manufacturing process, track the performance of the products and upload images directly after capturing.
High adoption of synchronous technology
The adoption of synchronous technology is increasing, especially in the apparel industry for product designing, creating and editing 3D prototypes and models. Synchronous technology provides proper control and immediate feedback of the designed model. Due to this, designing requires less preplanning and fewer command codes, making the process faster than previous modeling systems. In addition, the need for remodeling is comparatively less in synchronous technology. Unlike conventional history-based models, synchronous technology does not require the detailed history of a model. Options such as pick and drag with real-time dynamic updating help introduce the change easily.
Interoperability is another major factor that will give more prominence to synchronous technology in the future. It acts as a layer between NX, Solid Edge (Siemens PLM Software's CAD/CAM/CAE software), and PLM components.
Use of integrated packaging in packaged consumer goods sector
In the consumer goods sector, brand value is achieved by creating modern, consumer-friendly and sustainable packaging. The packaging of the product should convey all the values of the brand, attracting retailers and consumers alike. To create packaging that boosts the brand value of consumer goods manufacturers, it is mandatory that the manufacturer should have an innovative product and packaging concept, advanced package design and development capabilities. Also, the packaging and labelling should be environment friendly and compliant with regulations such as Food Safety and Standards Regulations.
The PLM solutions provide the packaging teams with the necessary tools like CAD, 3D printing, DM, CAM and CAE to effectively control and manage the complex packaging processes such as packaging design, artwork, labelling, and manufacturing of packs and labels. The software helps the packaging team to create integrated, refined, and automated process. The integration of packaging process also makes sure that the final design does not deviate from the pre-specified requirements.
