A Phased Roll Out with BIG BANG Elements: Opportunities and challenges in SCANIA’s large 3DEXPERIENCE implementation

REAL LIFE PLM. There are a lot of discussions in the engineering community about PLM and PLM's theoretical possibilities to make life easier for people in product development and realization. But what does it look like in real life in connection with a major change of PLM system in an OEM environment? It is about this Verdi Ogewell, PLM editor at engineering.com, has written an article: what is happening at the truck manufacturer Scania, which is now in the concept phase for the introduction of Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform (3DX).
We have listened to Volkswagen-owned Scania's PLM manager, Anders Malmberg, who talks about how to attack the problem of rolling out this solution (CATIA V6/ENOVIA) - The Starling Project - and make it work together with the older CATIA V5 version and their proprietary configuration and rules data platform OAS, etc. A challenge of large dimensions given that there are 16,000 employees and partners in the development work involved. How do they get this together at Scania after the 2017 decision to invest in Dassault's 3DX/V6? It’s a challenging journey well worth to take a closer look at.

The Starling Project: 16,000 PLM Users in Scania’s Big 3DEXPERIENCE Implementation

Scania’s PLM manager, Anders Malmberg.

The Volkswagen-owned truck manufacturer Scania is facing one of its toughest challenges yet in the PLM arena: “The Starling Project.”
During 2021, Scania will roll out its new PLM platform based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE. The move will affect 16,000 coworkers and external stakeholders in the supply chain. It’s a challenging bet just by virtue of its size, but even more so in light of the company’s efforts to find a well-balanced combination with some “big bang-like” elements, but mainly based on incremental phases.
Meet Scania’s PLM project manager, Anders Malmberg, responsible for the Starling project, in my new article on engineering.com. Prior to this rollout, Malmberg has been involved in the launch of Scania’s present PLM platform which is based on Dassault’s ENOVIA V5 solution and its connection to the truck developer’s configuration and rules data base, OAS, as well as an extensive SAP rollout project. After 14 years in the company, he knows the organization as like the back of his hand, and also what it is capable of.
Still, Malmberg and his coworkers are aware of the hazards involved. At Technia’s recent PLM Innovation Forum, Malmberg illustrated the magnitude of the challenge with a touch of irony and self-awareness. “I always call these projects ‘five-fifty-fifty projects.’ It’s a matter of at least five years, €50 million and still a fifty percent risk that you fail.”
