Fujitsu, Information Services International-Dentsu, Ltd. (hereinafter ISID) and DIGITAL PROCESS LTD. (hereinafter DIPRO) today announced a collaboration in the area of engineering chains starting August 23 to deliver product life cycle management (hereinafter PLM) systems for customers in the Japanese manufacturing industry.
In April 2022, Fujitsu, ISID, a subsidiary of Dentsu Group Inc., and Dentsu Inc. started a strategic partnership toward the realization of customer-oriented transformation aligned with three value chains— “engineering chain," “supply chain” and "demand chain” — to contribute to the continued business growth of client companies and the resolution of environmental and societal issues. As part of this partnership, Fujitsu and ISID announced the launch of a joint project to provide Siemens Digital Industries Software’s (1) product life cycle management (PLM) system “Teamcenter,” and will work toward achieving digital transformation (DX) in the manufacturing industry in the engineering chain.
DIPRO, a member of the Fujitsu Group, has now joined this joint project, and the three companies have agreed to further strengthen their organization for providing PLM systems.
About the collaboration
1. Optimal solutions through combined know-how
By combining Fujitsu’s know-how in the introduction of ECM, SCM and DCM solutions (2), ISID’ s capabilities in areas that cover the entire spectrum from ECM consulting to IT solutions, and DIPRO’ s expertise in ECM business and IT implementation capabilities cultivated in the automotive industry, the three companies will offer customers optimal solutions based on the introduction of PLM systems with special focus on “Teamcenter.”
In addition to addressing challenges in the engineering chain, the three companies will further combine their respective solutions to contribute to the resolution of challenges across the supply chain and demand chain.
2. Training of PLM system engineers
Based on their experience in the introduction of “Teamcenter,” the three companies will collaborate in the training of Fujitsu Group engineers. The partners will further form a project team of trained engineers to respond to large-scale introduction projects in a wide range of fields and build an organization capable of providing high-quality services in a short period of time.
Moving forward, Fujitsu, ISID and DIPRO will accelerate their collaboration across the entire engineering chain including the provision of PLM systems, and will further support the promotion of DX in the Japanese manufacturing industry and contribute to the enhancement of international competitiveness by focusing on the coordination between the supply and demand chains.
