LG Electronics implements Enovia V6 PLM

Management likes standardized processes and ‘single version of the truth’ through complex configurations. LG plans to extend the initial deployment of 4,000 to thousands more employes in 17 countries.

LG Electronics (LG) announced today that is has successfully adopted Dassault Systèmes’ Enovia V6 solution. Currently, 4,000 users at LG are working on Enovia V6 in conjunction with other design tools from Dassault competitors, and ERP software. LG says Enovia ties together all of the other systems to ensure that there is one global instance of the product data for the company.

The initial deployment of Enovia V6 is for LG’s R&D, manufacturing, and purchasing department. The on-site installation was done by LG CNS, an IT consulting and solutions company, and Dassault Systèmes.

LG says it looked for a faster and more efficient bill of materials (BOM) management system that would also provide more accurate and consistent data management between its design engineering and BOM solutions. LG says the Enovia V6 solution has addressed these issues, while also improving product development through the automation of BOM creation, and providing a more systematic means of managing the countless product modifications that take place.

LG says it has already documented higher work efficiency among its global business operations following the Enovia V6 deployment. The use of Enovia V6 will be gradually extended to include users throughout local subsidiaries in 58 regions and 17 countries.

“LG is now efficiently managing tens of terabytes of data,” says Jae-sung Lee, vice president, LG Electronics Business Unit, LG CNS, “providing LG’s global users with a quick and easy PLM system. We will continue the implementation of Enovia V6 solutions for LG Electronics globally and closely collaborate with DS in various business areas.”

“Enovia V6 reflects the ability to offer a single repository, out-of-the-box, standardized processes and single version of the truth for LG globally,” says Young-bin Cho, managing director, Korea, Dassault Systèmes.
