Accenture Product Lifecycle Services

This Business Service combines digital assets, software and services across manufacturing and engineering to help clients to increase revenues, reduce costs and time to market for new products.


The rise of the digital revolution - “Digital Industry 4.0”, or, the “Industrial Internet of Things” - is transforming the value chain of industrial companies, creating the need for better integration of engineering and product development; production and technology; supply chain and marketing and sales.

Accenture Product Lifecycle Services (APLS) supports this integration and transformation covering three solution areas - Engineering and Product Development, Manufacturing and Digital Operations, and Products to Solutions. APLS helps clients’ end-to-end integration of product, customer and service data, and enhanced digital capabilities in engineering, manufacturing and services. It provides clients with a comprehensive portfolio of business and technology services, including innovation and product design excellence, product lifecycle management (PLM) transformation; implementation and application services and support; PLM-as-a-service and embedded software development for connected products. To support clients’ manufacturing and digital operations, APLS can provide maintenance, repair and operations optimization services (MRO); enterprise asset maintenance services, manufacturing technology services, and a range of solutions to support digital manufacturing operations.

In 2013, the acquisitions of PRION Group, PCO Innovation and the industrial and embedded software business of evopro group enhanced our ability to help companies as they move to a connected world of intelligent and connected products supported by a fully digital value chain.

Why Accenture

Global megatrends and technologies are changing the life of today’s automotive and industrial companies. This is leading to increased demand for connected, converged and smart products, resulting in some of the largest technological and socioeconomic change in years. This convergence will dramatically change the ecosystem, and our clients are seeking new paths to improve the customer experience and bring new innovative products to market faster and expand cost efficiencies.

Accenture has a global network of Automotive and Industrial Industry Hubs, Centers of Excellence and Delivery Centers with industry professionals with deep knowledge and experience. To expand capabilities and address our clients’ needs, recent acquisitions include PRION Group and PCO Innovation, two system integration companies specializing in the delivery of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services and the industrial and embedded software development and services business of evopro group. With the experience and capabilities gained through these acquisitions we can further help manufacturing clients organize, develop and manage the processes needed for the entire lifecycle of new products and services.
