Abstract

This paper studies the specific Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) capabilities needed for the transformation of Engineered to Order (ETO) manufacturing towards Configure to Order business strategy. The material for the research comes from a project conducted with public private partnership. The four industrial companies that we studied engineer and/or manufacture highly customized products in low volumes with globally distributed networks. This is an industrial context, which requires specific PLM capabilities. The capabilities are essential for business transformation, broadening the utilization of PLM, and enhancing and maintaining the competitive edge of ETO manufacturing organizations.
