MatrixOne, Inc., a provider of collaborative product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions for the value chain(TM), announced on Tuesday that John Deere Brazil S.A has selected its suite of products. According to MatrixOne, the implementation of its solutions will increase efficiency and enable precise management of information in the different manufacturing groups.

Claudir Robe, project manager at John Deere Brazil, confirmed: "These solutions will allow the development of important tasks such as the integration between the different CAD systems we use and the ERP solution used by our company, managing at the same time 3D and 2D CAD objects and information to and from our ERP system, enabling them in a web-based environment and in real-time. This concept will make possible the viewing of information along the various manufacturing processes, the processes related to a certain item, the life cycle and status of each process and the costs involved in any project. In the end, we will certainly reduce operational costs and have a perfect management of the complicated manufacturing projects."

MatrixOne says its solutions accelerate the development process and the way companies deliver products in the market by managing the flow of information to product engineers, sales staff, managers, suppliers, and even customers.

Mr. Robe added: "We chose MatrixOne's PLM solutions because they enable us to share information generated by our engineers, in real time and in a Web environment, which is familiar to anyone involved. The architecture of these products will also enable us to integrate the engineering environments with our ERP system, which is a very important task to speed up the delivery time of our products. Another important point in this choice is the presence of a MatrixOne value added reseller (VAR) in Brazil, which has been involved in the negotiation, technical support and implementation of these solutions, applying costs according to meet local needs."
