Oracle Agile PLM

Oracle Agile is great for companies that need a way to manage their products and work with various resources in their department from developers, to PMs and UX designers. This is a great way to keep track of feature requests and shippable versions of the product. Implementation and user friendlessness is an issue with this tool so companies that have the budget for consulting or for additional resources to help implement and maintain will need those resources as it is necessary. Training resources should also be factored in by any institution wishing to implement this.

SAP PLM is well suited for any industry that needs to track the creation of a product from the raw material stage all the way to the shipped product. I do not think it would be well suited for very small companies which do not have any materials, products, and inventory to track.

Cons

Oracle Agile PLM

  • The overview page is dated as this UI has been in the works for many years - a very 'engineering dashboard'
  • Unable to copy, paste, and modify workflows . Need to create from scratch
  • Ongoing support for Oracle Agile is in question with the movement to Cloud technologies

SAP PLM

  • Implementation Challenges.
  • Not a one product fits all — each organization to customize a lot to accommodate their own processes.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Agile PLM

We did not evaluate other software because Oracle Agile PLM was highly recommended by our Board of Directors. We knew of another company that used it with favorable results and felt it would help us in our management of the manufacturing process.

SAP PLM

SAP PLM encompasses SAP BW and SAP PRD. We tend to focus more on the SAP PRD portion as it directly involves more closely to production. We selected SAP PLM because it gives us a great visibility in the life cycle of materials, products and overall costs. SAP PLM compliments the other packages very well

Return on Investment

Oracle Agile PLM

  • For us, Oracle Agile PLM did what we purchased it for: it streamlined our product lifecycle management
  • The unexpected thing was that it took 6 months from the start of the implementation to release.
  • The user adoption did not match our expectation: due to extensive training needs and the complexity of the tool, some users still don't use it

SAP PLM

  • Accurately able to order raw materials which are necessary for the current production run, thus reducing overhead.
  • The negative impact would be the initial cost of the software and how long it would take to ROI that cost.
  • It has allowed us to control batches of product creation much more closer and have the ability to cut some erroneous costs which were found in large batches.
