According to Parameteric Technology Corporation (PTC) popular British brand Triumph Motorcycles is all set to use its product lifecycle management software, Windchill. In a press release PTC officials expressed that their software Windchill will help Triumph to share and receive information related to motorcycles in a more organized and systematic way.
In today’s times, material for producing motorcycles comes from various parts of the world. Suppliers are spread out. Many bike manufacturers have assembly plants in other countries. Triumph produces 50,000 motorcycles annually. New models of bikes are introduced every year.
Majority of Triumph’s bikes are assembled in Thailand after parts and components are sent from the UK. Keeping a tab on various stages of product development becomes difficult. With Windchill software iconic brand Triumph can keep a close watch on every stage in the manufacturing and supply chain management process. Triumph has been associated with PTC since the mid 1990s, using PTCs aided software Creo Parametric.

Triumph Motorbikes Selects PTC® for Enterprise PLM
PTC® (Nasdaq: PMTC) today announced that Triumph Motorcycles Ltd, the largest British motorcycle manufacturer, has selected Windchill® for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). The use of Windchill will enable Triumph to better support business growth and product development needs.
Triumph was established in 1902 and is an iconic brand not only in the UK, but worldwide. At the heart of its philosophy is a commitment to develop truly unique motorcycles that offer the perfect blend of design, character and performance. Triumph’s innovation expertise and passion have driven its creation of a range of bikes, from cutting-edge super sports bikes to retro-classics and laid-back cruisers.
“Triumph motorcycles have always had a special character,” said Geoff Hurst, Chief Information Officer, Triumph Motorcycles Ltd. “We pride ourselves on our distinctive design, performance pedigree, outstanding engineering and unique engine sound. With that reputation and our annual production level of 50,000 motorcycles (which includes the design of 4 new models each year and numerous updates), we felt it was key to move our product development to another level and implement a fully integrated PLM system.”
As a long-time user of PTC solutions – Creo Parametric for product design and Pro/INTRALINK solution for data management – Triumph was aware of PTC’s technology and capabilities. “We had used Pro/INTRALINK to its maximum capacity and, after a business evaluation, decided to deploy Windchill as a single, comprehensive PLM system to support the entire design from early-stage product development to manufacturing,” continued Hurst. “We believe we will see a significant improvement in the design, production and manufacturing development times.”
For automotive companies such as Triumph, Windchill can create a well-defined and orderly process for how informal and formal changes to product design are proposed, evaluated, implemented and documented. Windchill delivers a best practice change-process strategy that enables all product development parties to instantly access all necessary data in order to improve product quality, reduce product costs, minimize product inventory and improve time-to-market by minimizing manufacturing downtime.
“The automotive market is ultra-competitive and the stakes are high,” said Sin Min Yap, vice president, Market Strategy at PTC. “Designing and engineering a motorcycle from the ground up is a complex process that must keep pace with the ever-changing requirements of customers. These companies require superior technology to overcome the industry’s most daunting challenges. Windchill enables automotive companies like Triumph to manage customer needs, product performance, distributed collaboration, intricate global supply chains, and disparate data to put them ahead of the pack.”
Triumph Motorcycles, the iconic British motorcycle marquee is solely owned by Bloor Holdings Ltd. First established in 1902 and now based in Hinckley, Leicestershire, Triumph has always set the pace for category winning machines.
