The South American Opus Suite Webinar was held on December 2 2021. While there was special focus on South America and Brazil, it was attended by participants from all over the world.

The webinar focused on the values Opus Suite brings in terms of creating a common understanding of complex logistic issues within and between organizations and the support Opus Suite provide in the communication with stakeholders.

The analytical Life Cycle Management Capabilities Opus Suite provide an organization is well renowned and the continuing rapid growth of users is a proof that the questions that inspired Systecon to create Opus Suite originally, are still current and important. The answer Opus Suite provide is equally crucial today than it ever was, in development, in production, in procurement and in service. However, in step with the needs of our users, the Opus Suite has evolved and servs today a much broader purpose within and between organizations. Opus Suite provide for a common understanding and stringent communication in several dimensions. Vertical, between analysts and managers. Horizontal, between producers and procurement or maintainers and operators. Transversal, between development and aftermarket.
