LU-VE Group collaborated with Accenture to transform product design with centralized processes and digital tools. The Industry X Digital Service Factory operating model helped accelerate digital transformation with a customizable set of end-to-end digital execution capabilities to identify, design, develop, test, pilot and launch new digital products and services. Our transformation work spanned strategy, organizational and process design, systems integration, cloud infrastructure and application maintenance.
At the Accenture Customer Innovation Network in Milan, the team identified strategic ideas to tackle LU-VE's digital transformation journey. As part of the journey, we created a centralized process model and helped select and configure a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution, based on Siemens Teamcenter, to be used across Italy, China, Czech Republic, Finland, India, Poland, Russia, Sweden and USA. With the new processes and solutions, LU-VE can share product data across all company divisions and business units. It has also changed its design methodology from 2D to 3D. LU-VE is extending the system to the sales department and plans to do so in procurement and production.
In addition to digitalizing LU-VE's PLM processes, the team simplified its IT infrastructure. LU-VE previously had its infrastructure in third-party data centers, which caused problems with system performance, data loss and business continuity. We helped migrate its entire IT architecture, including the Siemens Teamcenter solution and SAP enterprise resource planning system, onto an AWS cloud infrastructure and continue to manage the network. The migration is helping LU-VE attain its goal of moving to a systems-as-a-service model.
