June 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Ann Arbor, Michigan—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM management consulting and research firm announces a new paper about the EADS PHENIX Programme, a large scale PLM harmonization, deployment, and institutionalization effort at the EADS Group, one of the world’s largest aerospace and defense conglomerates. Launched in 2007, the goal of the PHENIX programme was to harmonize the group’s PLM tools, processes, and associated standards to create a new PLM paradigm appropriate for all future and on-going civil, military, and space group product development programmes.

“CIMdata is always excited to review successful large-scale PLM programs, as they often reveal new potential best practices and highlight those that are well known,” said Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Director of Research. “Sponsorship comes directly from their Executive Management Team, and EADS has insured that all levels understand the importance of the program and their roles in it.” Peter Bilello, CIMdata’s President, continued, “EADS knew that to be successful, the PHENIX Programme needed to evolve from their initial PHENIX project to something more permanent, the PHENIX Harmonisation Centre, which will maintain and evolve their cross-organizational teams and processes going forward.”

The CIMdata report describes the various projects and activities undertaken by the extended EADS team, the organizational structures and processes used, and how the PHENIX Harmonisation Centre will support PLM for the long-term in the EADS Group.
