PLM (Product Lifecycle Management)

Provide the context, security, traceability and processes needed across enterprise teams and systems to ensure product data is accessible and trustworthy

What is PLM?

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software enables geographically dispersed, multi-disciplinary, teams to strategically collaborate with partners and customers using trusted, up-to-date product information.

PLM is the foundation for the digital thread, delivering supply chain agility and business continuity. Data governance and traceability provided by PLM enables organizations to drive down costs, accelerate time to market, and deliver the highest levels of quality and compliance.

A PLM-enabled framework for discrete manufacturers

For discrete manufacturers, the digital thread begins in the engineering department. This is where mechanical/electronic components and embedded software data is linked with traceability to requirements, simulations, certifications, BOMs, process plans, and MBSE. This information, along with its derivatives, needs to be leveraged bi-directionally, across teams and systems; including service, manufacturing, IT, and quality, among others.

With PLM you create the foundation for the digital thread and provide all required stakeholders with access to the real-time data they need, when they need it.
