Mayer & Cie’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) strategy has helped the company create a digital backbone to offer better customer experiences and lean, innovative and modern processes. First adopted in 2017, the strategy maps the company’s end-to-end digital process – from the first steps in machine development via product information of each and every kind, configuration options and production information to the service case. The strategy has helped the company move development and production significantly closer to each other. It also enables customers find the right parts more easily in the web shop.
