Experience with VACCO Industries the effort of upgrading from PLM 360 software to Fusion Lifecycle software. This presentation will explore the planning and requirements used for the upgrade, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Working closely with Autodesk, this lecture can assist all existing Fusion Lifecycle customers and new potential customers as we discuss the pros and cons of each environment. We'll include a live demonstration and a peek into VACCO's workflows, integrated workspaces, and other system integrations with Vault data management software and ERP (enterprise resource planning).
- Discover the planning techniques and requirements needed for an upgrade
- Discover the advantages of using cloud PDM data management
- Discover lessons learned and get advise to achieve a successful upgrade
- Discover the pros and cons of both environments and user adoption
