About PLM Optiva for Food & Beverage Industry Virtual Boardroom

Food and beverage manufacturers are often faced with constant challenges, like pressure to innovate faster, increasing costs, and quality assurance & compliance in order to meet both consumer and regulatory demands.

The R&D department plays a crucial role in developing new product ideas, but they in turn rely on business systems that exist in silos. R&D needs to define how the product will be manufactured. Having visibility into capacity, bottlenecks, and scheduling constraints help ensure that production is as efficient as possible.

When a PLM system is integrated with other enterprise business systems, the manufacturer is able to give R&D access to the data and insights that can further enrich formulation efforts and optimize manufacturing decisions.

In this Roundtable we discuss, how PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) technologies can help companies achieve continuous product innovation while maximizing value of their R&D efforts
The PLM Optiva for Food & Beverage Industry Virtual Boardroom will bring together leaders from the food and beverage sector to discuss, how they can accelerate product innovation using PLM technologies and achieve 100% regulatory and labelling compliance.
