CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, today announced its strategic role in Embraer’s next generation PLM initiative. Embraer, the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial jets up to 120 seats, first engaged CIMdata in 2011 to provide strategic advice and counsel during the strategy development and PLM solution provider selection phases of its enterprise PLM program.
Embraer’s PLM program team was responsible for gathering and harmonizing the global organization’s requirements, setting the vision, and selecting the solution provider for its future PLM environment. “CIMdata’s wealth of PLM expertise, global perspective and independence were invaluable to our program. CIMdata provided us with critical insight and expertise that accelerated our program definition,” said Mr. Fernando Ranieri, Embraer’s VP Strategy - Engineering and Technology. Mr. Ranieri went on to say,“We look forward to working with CIMdata and will rely on their contribution during the implementation of our new PLM environment.”
During this part of the Embraer’s PLM initiative, CIMdata senior consultants employed their extensive methodology and associated tools while working with Embraer’s PLM core team and sponsoring executives in a highly collaborative manner to define the company’s enterprise PLM program and strategy for its success.
Mr. Alexandre Baulé, Embraer’s Chief Information Officer, commented,“Embraer has greatly benefited from CIMdata consultants’ expertise and PLM consulting methodology. We have been impressed with CIMdata’s best practice-based approach as well as the organization’s ability to adjust to Embraer’s business climate and culture. CIMdata is an invaluable member of our PLM program and we count on them in the months and years to come for the program’s successful implementation.”
CIMdata’s President, Mr. Peter Bilello, said,“It has been a pleasure to work with Embraer over the last year and a half. CIMdata has been impressed with Embraer’s strategic view of PLM and how it can transform the company. Embraer’s culture of innovation, collaboration, and individual commitment supported by knowledgeable and engaged executive sponsors has provided the basis for a PLM initiative that is an excellent example of how a large-scale PLM program should be executed. CIMdata looks forward to providing additional strategic consulting support to Embraer’s PLM program during solution implementation.”
