PLM software optimizes package development

Global cosmetics leader L’Oreal S.A. selected Siemens’ Teamcenter software to help optimize its packaging development processes, reduce time to market, and improve product innovation and quality.

Teamcenter, a widely used product lifecycle management (PLM) system, will be deployed globally as L'Oreal's corporate product data management system and will be used by everyone involved in the company's product development processes. Teamcenter is developed by Siemens' PLM software business unit.

"Siemens' PLM software was selected following an extensive evaluation process that included major providers in the PLM market," said Martin Rhein, L'Oreal Group Operations CIO. "Teamcenter was selected because of the PLM portfolio's breadth, adaptability to the L'Oreal Processes and Data Model requirements, and user-friendly interface, and because of the knowledge demonstrated by Siemens PLM Software during the selection phase. Naturally, Siemens itself is a large and stable company with a reputation for innovation. This also gives us a lot of confidence in their ability to execute."

"Siemens PLM Software's Teamcenter system will help optimize our engineering and manufacturing processes," said Philippe Thuvien, L'Oreal Group Development and Packaging Director. "It will allow us to share packaging configurations and innovative ideas between different technical departments, standardize specifications, and thus help to reduce time and product cost. We will also be able to capture and manage our corporate know-how, creating a solid foundation for a future of innovation and growth."

"L'Oreal's decision to standardize on Teamcenter is a welcome validation of the need for a robust, open PLM platform for the consumer goods industry," said Chick Grindstaff, President and CEO, Siemens PLM Software. "We're pleased to partner with L'Oreal to deliver a solution that enhances innovation and manages complexity, both of which are requirements for today's market."
