It is largely because of the second and third items on the list that Triumph has decided to implement a full-blown product lifecycle management system, Windchill from PTC.

While it has been using PTC’s Creo Parametric for product design and its Pro/INTRALINK for data management, according to Geoff Hurst, Triumph Motorcycles Ltd. chief information officer, ““We had used Pro/INTRALINK to its maximum capacity and, after a business evaluation, decided to deploy Windchill as a single, comprehensive PLM system to support the entire design from early-stage product development to manufacturing. We believe we will see a significant improvement in the design, production and manufacturing development times.”

And whether it is two wheels or four, as time is money. . . .
