Procter & Gamble, a global consumer packaged goods company, is harnessing the power of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help connect thousands of company staff to data, colleagues and consumers.
By deploying Dassault Systèmes’ ‘Perfect Product’ and ‘Perfect Package’ solutions, Procter & Gamble will be able to accelerate and improve its packaging and product design, as well as enhance its requirements management and programme management processes.
The company currently manages ten product categories, with 65 brands across 80 countries.
‘Perfect Product’ and ‘Perfect Package’ are both based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and will be made available to 18,000 members of Procter & Gamble staff. This will cover areas such as research and development, product supply, quality and other disciplines to support the design and development of products.
Thanks to the scale of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Procter & Gamble will be better placed to innovate, manage and accelerate product programmes. This is in the context of short product lifecycles, fluctuating costs of raw materials, and the variable demands of its consumers.
Furthermore, thanks to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s global collaborative digital environment, data related to specific projects are traceable, easily shared and reusable. Processes can be more easily streamlined thanks to the platform, while data can be easily exchanged with consumers to allow for greater insight into specific trends and usage.
“Our decision to upgrade our existing Dassault Systèmes’ PLM to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is part of our work to digitally transform our business to support our work process digital transformation and drive value,” said Jean-Louis Hospitel, IT director, Procter & Gamble. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform facilitates end-to-end innovation integration and improved user experience for our seamless technical community.”
“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and our industry solution experiences for consumer packaged goods connect people, processes and systems,” said Philippe Loeb, vice president, Consumer Packaged Goods & Retail Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “As a result, companies can reduce product development time by up to 20%. This is a major advantage in an industry that requires bigger, better and faster innovation from companies that have to constantly readjust business priorities in response to changing consumer habits. Discovering and delivering the next breakthrough product becomes that much more efficient.”
