NEC has released a cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) service to be offered from data centers in Thailand.
Dubbed "Obbligato for SaaS," it offers integrated management of technical information for products such as design drawings, specifications and parts lists throughout the product lifecycle for manufacturers.
A growing number of Japanese manufacturers are establishing operations in Thailand, which is currently trending toward the local design and development of new products from the perspective of cultivating Asian markets and the China-plus-one strategy.
This is in addition to the conventional localization of products designed and developed in Japan. Accordingly, there are rising needs for PLM solutions that effectively manage the product technical information that is vital to manufacturers, such as design drawings, specifications and parts lists, as well as related documents.
NEC's Obbligato for SaaS defines operational functions for bill of material (BOM) management, document management and design change data management as standards, and implements them as services based on expertise accumulated through the Obbligato series of PLM software.
