A.O. Smith Electrical Products Company has purchased Dassault Systemes’ Enovia MatrixOne product lifecycle management system, to integrate global design, manufacturing and resource planning to deliver products more quickly to market.
The company manufactures electric motors for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
We’re adopting Enovia MatrixOne as the technology foundation of a comprehensive PLM strategy to optimize our global engineering organization, which spans the US, Mexico and China, said Steve Robbins, A.O. Smith’s vice president of engineering and information technology.
The company selected the PLM system to implement high-priority business initiatives, including: leveraging global design in one integrated solution; centralization of product data for universal accessibility and reuse; deployment of common development systems and processes; efficient management of product changes; and sharing of data among all enterprise systems.
