Proprietary Research Reveals Why 78% of Product Companies Fail to Connect Suppliers to Their PLM System

In a recent Arena Supply Chain survey, over 400 product companies from a wide cross-section of industries shared how they manage their product lifecycle processes.

The survey findings were surprising. While nearly two-thirds of companies said it is important to give suppliers access to their bill of material (BOM), an overwhelming majority, 78% indicated that their suppliers do NOT have access to their product data.

Survey results offer the most comprehensive statistical research on the challenges that are causing more supply chain links to become brittle. The insights within could help you overcome the security and PLM supplier license cost concerns cited by over 59% of respondents.
