Introduction This project explains how Motorola’s Mobile Devices Business has gained control of part proliferation (AKA the “Pruning” process) to save millions of dollars within the Teamcenter Product Data Management (PDM) system. The Executive Summary explains the huge accomplishment that was made by gaining control of this problem. In addition, now that the process is in a controllable state, two documented procedures have been written to explain what the process is, who does it, how it is performed, and plans to maintain the system going forward.
