PLM or ERP? Which one should you implement first?

It makes sense to build and implement both systems simultaneously, as it ensures the integration is done specifically to your business needs. Learn more: https://www.to-increase.com/manufacturing/blog/top-4-benefits-of-plm-erp-integration

Is engineering change management (ECM) a prerequisite for PLM integration?

Yes, ECM is the basis of PLM integration. ECM manages product/version changes, variances on bills-of-material, routings, and inventory. For the integration to yield great results, the Engineering Change Management should first be implemented in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 system.

I have a messy PLM System - Can I connect to ERP?

Yes, you can provided your engineering data quality is good. In case of poor quality, data needs to be manually corrected in the ERP system, which can slow down the process and significantly increase the implementation time.

What's the implementation time?

The integration can be implemented in less than 3 days once governance, responsibility, and data ownership are defined by engineering and manufacturing functions.

Does To-Increase provide PLM integration only with Microsoft Dynamics 365?

To-Increase provides PLM integration only with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management. It’s not available for Dynamics 365 Business Central.
