One of the world’s largest consumer packaged goods companies, P&G is deploying Dassault Systèmes’ “Perfect Product” and “Perfect Package” to connect thousands of users to data, colleagues and consumers.
The systems are designed to improve the company’s packaging and product design, requirements management and program management.
P&G manages 10 product categories and 65 brands in more than 80 countries, and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps P&G to leverage its scale with greater agility to innovate, efficiently manage and accelerate product programs in the context of short product lifecycles, fluctuating costs of raw materials, and highly variable consumer demand.
Jean-Louis Hospitel, IT director, P&G, said the decision to upgrade to 3DEXPERIENCE was part of the plan to digitally transform the business further.
“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform facilitates end-to-end innovation integration and improved user experience for our seamless technical community.”
The “Perfect Product” and “Perfect Package” applications are being extended across P&G to 18,000 users in research and development, product supply, quality and other disciplines to support the design and development of products.
Project data is traceable, shareable and reusable, with teams spending less time searching for data and having access to more consistent and accurate packaging and product specifications.
This streamlines processes and saves rework and expense.
In addition to this increased productivity, data can be exchanged easily with consumers to gain greater insight into trends, needs and usage.
Philippe Loeb, vice president, consumer packaged goods & retail industry, Dassault Systèmes, said 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.”
