Uncovering Closed-Loop Manufacturing (CLM)

An unstable supply chain and an increase in customers’ need for custom products are some of the biggest challenges that manufacturers are dealing with today. The increased competition means they cannot afford to raise their products because that might result in a loss in market share. That’s why more focus has now been put on lowering the production cost by making the manufacturing process as efficient as possible.


Today, the host Chris Pennington, Global Industry Marketing Leader for Industrial Machinery at Siemens Digital Industries Software, is joined by Rahul Garg, the Vice President of the Industrial Machinery and Mid-market Program at Siemens Digital Industries Software. He’ll help us understand what closed-loop manufacturing (CLM) entails.


In this episode, you’ll learn the steps involved in CLM and the benefits of deploying it on a factory floor. Additionally, you’ll find out the role played by product lifecycle management (PLM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
