The article discusses the idea of product lifecycle management (PLM) in manufacturing processes, according to the participants at the ARC Advisory Group Conference in Orlando, Florida. Raj Batra of Siemens Energy and Automation said part of the goal is for companies to rework how they produce product. Part of the innovation is getting companies to rethink the process, Batra added. According to Andreas Aufenanger, general manager of Process Automation Systems, manufacturers are feeling the pressure to increase productivity. He added that one big growth area is with process improvements. Siemens marketing executive Dave Shirk also said that things are becoming more visible, with everything becoming more networked. Batra also talked about wireless and its potential.
