Faurecia changes its PLM and discovers that only 20% people effectively use the previous version… The goal is to design, develop and deploy an efficient training.
PLM effective use is the challenge. How do you make CAD designers effectively use the PLM as a powerful workflow?
Given the challenge of PLM effective use, I’ve focused on achieving those 5 objectives :
- collaborators know why the change is implemented;
- designers understand what’s in the change for each of them;
- people are trained on their new activities;
- professionals are proficient in their everyday work; and
- top management thank people for their achievements.
Those five questions stem from the ADKAR® Model.
Therefore, in order to promote PLM effective use, I’ve defined, designed, developed and deployed training that matches the organization change approach, within the Organizational Change Management team of the PML program.
What are the resistances people have had, when using the former PLM ?
First of all, if I start using the PLM, won’t part of my job will swap to India or China, whose people are paid 75% less?
Furthermore, are we going to dump people out of my team?
Why change for a newer version of PLM ?
Officially, because PLM editor stopped supporting the present version. But 25% of the PLM code was editor’s, the remaining 75% was taylor-made code from 4 business units.
