To Dominate the EV Market You Need
Speed, Visibility and Accuracy

Automotive manufacturers that have adopted a Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) approach are delivering more vehicles, faster, at greater profit margins while exceeding customer expectations.
Industry Disruptions and Misaligned Data Affecting Production
Electric vehicle companies experience some unique hurdles to fast production times. Shortages of electronic components, lithium batteries and raw materials can create a glut of orders with few cars rolling off the assembly line.

But it’s not just how they are made that is creating this situation, but how the’re sold.

The trend of car buying is rapidly shifting to 100% online, which means those manufacturers whose product, pricing and engineering data is already aligned on the production side are not only providing better user experience, but are also a step ahead of the competition.

Align Data Across Functions to Deliver Error-free Vehicles Faster

Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) takes product configuration data from each function within an organization – Engineering, Sales, Manufacturing and Service – validates every possible configuration, and then feeds this data back in a compact, fast, easily-accessed file.

By sharing this data source throughout an organization, every function works from the same, 100% accurate data.

The result is an engineer can’t create a new product that can’t be manufactured, a sales person can’t sell a product that can’t be engineered, manufacturing won’t receive an order that can’t be fulfilled, and service will have an accurate presentation of the installed base for efficient and profitable maintenance.

For your customers, this means a smooth, frictionless transaction from order to delivery with no back-and-forth correcting errors or mis-configurations.

 

 

 

More Vehicles, Lower Costs and Satisfied Customers With CLM

For electric vehicle manufacturers, this digital thread created by CLM delivers value not only through faster product development, but also by creating the digital backbone of an external-facing sales configurator.

Because every function has already been aligned, manufacturers are able to quickly deploy a sales portal that is based on 100% accurate data.

For manufacturers, this means they can start to offer their product for sale as soon as they have created them.

For customers, this means a seamless ordering experience that guides them to the best available product that suits their individual needs.
