In a rapidly changing market environment, OEMS are creating and evolving their business partnerships with other manufacturers or creating joint ventures to gain access to local markets, technology, and resources, to increase their product range quickly. The number of such partnerships and joint ventures is growing rapidly. However, inherent differences in the product development methodologies and systems are hampering the timely realization of these partnerships due to increasing challenges in enabling data exchange between partners.
- Usage of different data authoring and management systems
- Business process differences
- Increasing data validation requirements
- Maintaining confidentiality and security
The ability to create such partnerships or ventures, and ramping the production quickly, are key factors for their success
