Sustainable Innovation for some relates to, “the continuous improvement of products toward reducing the environmental impact of the production, use and disposal of those assets.” This is an accurate view of Sustainable Innovation. One which SAP’s PLM suite can help you enable across projects and product lines.
SAP does also put forth a view of sustainable innovation that might be more properly named, “Sustained Profitable Innovation.” Within this view, companies pursue three main objectives:
Innovate Smarter – through real time insights and dashboards, project and product line leadership gain valuable insights via Business Context Viewer powered by SAP HANA
Innovate Faster – Execution speeds up when engineering teams, partners and suppliers have unified insight across R&D, Asset Management, Manufacturing and Service with embedded quality and compliance
Innovate Simpler – Integrated 3D visualization and mobile access allows engineers and today’s multi-site teams to close out issues faster, share ideas, and approve work, while on the road. 3D visualization also allows engineers to better design for manufacturing and service. Simpler innovations lead to higher profits and higher customer satisfaction.
This vision is really SAP’s vision for connected innovation, and LeverX can help you get there quickly and cost-effectively. With our Strategic Assessment and Roadmap (SAR), we can help you find the simplest path to gaining hard dollar benefit while pursuing Sustained Profitable Innovation.
