We helped the customer reduce cycle times and increase capacity, allowing manufacturing to begin sooner.


A hygiene and infection prevention company.


Keeping all end-to-end data in one PLM system became a major challenge when this hygiene and infection prevention company began to grow and obtain new businesses.


The biggest priority of the project was to get the company away from its legacy PLM system — in this case EPIC — and get everything into SAP PLM.

Customer Background

There were multiple specification processes and software systems that were specific to division, region, or legacy company. The differences in processes and/or software created a bottleneck in speed to market, reduced visibility, created cross-manufacturing challenges, and in the end, caused a lack in quality and regulatory compliance risks. Like many expanding companies their processes began to take too long, they had no single source of truth with info sitting in different silos, and there was little visibility within and between systems. It was time to launch SAP PLM, and LeverX was the trusted partner for this transformation.

Project Scope

LeverX is very familiar with this transformation. For quick and seamless data migration we leveraged VeloX tool to migrate all equipment data into the new SAP PLM system. Once this migration was complete, it was time to automate change management workflows within SAP PLM. Using a full IPS enterprise package, this company was able to automate the decision control process for materials, BOMs, and all documents in the process of review and approval. LeverX was able to customize engineering records and use IPS-controlled workflows to allow objects to work up through the approval phases, eventually leading to quicker time to manufacturing.

Cycle times decreased by more than 60% for spec creation, allowing manufacturing to begin sooner. Capacity has been increased by more than 25%.

The foundation for one seamless company has been built, creating one source for specification data independent of the ERP system to enable Supply Chain leverage.

The main takeaway is that a reduced number of systems and workflows improves data quality as well as reduces waste. End-to-end product production sets up visibility and governance to reduce these cycle times.
