Data centric approach to implement PLM in the medical device industry
This thesis describes the creation and application of a data-centric meta-model for the uniform structuring and systematic collection of processes and data. Today, digital transformation offers companies a lot of potential for increasing their agility, efficiency and effectiveness, but also for designing new business models. However, to cope with the rapid changes in technology, economy and society as a company is sometimes not an easy task, as data and processes often take place in clearly dedicated departments and locations that do not communicate with each other. This creates walls in companies that hinder transparency and the ability to communicate. These walls must be removed in a targeted and gradual manner in order to unfold the benefits of digital transformation. The developed meta model represents this guideline and is presented together with a modern process and organizational structure for an agile company to prepare itself sustainably for the digital future.
