Product Lifecycle Management. Software managing workflows and processes from design to manufacturing.
A PLM coordinates all your product life cycle stages by aligning them with your associated information, processes, and people. These stages start with the conception of your initial idea, continue with the design and production and ultimately end with the final distribution of your product.
While PLM started as a strategic solution to speed up product development processes within the automotive industry, it quickly established itself as an across-industry software solution – operating as a single-source-of-truth for all your product data. So any company running operations within design, manufacturing, or distribution can benefit from integrating a PLM solution.
