Blast Motion Wins Manufacturing Leadership Award Powered by Arena Solutions


Blast Motion implemented cloud-based Arena PLM to enable faster product development and dramatic improvements in time-to-market, cost, and quality. Deployment took just a few weeks. Blast Motion began seeing benefits and return on investment instantly and reported being able to bring three products to market in a three month span, beating the original objective to introduce two products within six months. They were able to deliver significantly ahead of schedule and under budget, and achieved reductions in errors and scrap by using Arena PLM.

“This is an excellent example of the incredible gains in efficiency and cost reduction that Arena customers realize with Arena PLM,” said Steve Chalgren, Arena’s executive vice president of product management and chief strategy officer. “By introducing a much greater level of visibility, collaboration and management of their complex BOM, Blast was able to dramatically reduce errors and waste, while increasing the speed at which they can bring their products to market and at a higher quality. Arena congratulates Blast for winning this high honor.”
