Business Strategy: Product Life-Cycle IT Application Adoption and Investment in Western Europe -- An IDC Survey

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report provides an analysis of our survey results from 215 interviews with manufacturers operating across Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Spain regarding product life-cycle IT applications. The study shows adoption levels and investment plans for five product life-cycle IT applications: CAx (computer-aided design [CAD], computer-aided manufacturing [CAM], computer-aided engineering [CAE]), PDM (product data management), PLM (product life-cycle management), digital manufacturing, and warranty management.

"Product and service innovation remains high on manufacturers' priority lists," said Lorenzo Veronesi, EMEA research analyst, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
