Data Management made easy.

Solutions PLM PDM

Product data management (PDM) and Product lifecycle management (PLM). Fast product development from efficient data processing. PDM and PLM systems and software from CIDEON.


Data Management made easy.

Use a PDM system to manage and automate all relevant production information, product data and process steps during the design and construction phase. You then get an overview of changes, documents, BOMs, processes as well as individual version statuses.

PLM extends PDM systems by creating, processing and utilizing data and information throughout the product lifecycle. CIDEON works together with long-term partners Autodesk, SAP, Dassault Systèmes and PROCAD to provide many years of expertise and first-class (software) solutions for the wide range of application scenarios for your data management.

Solutions PDM PLM


Use product data management systems (PDM systems) to significantly and sustainably reduce the time required to manage design data. The core system function handles all product-related information and design processes together in one place.



Product lifecycle management systems (PLM systems) build on PDM systems and enable efficient management and control of data and processes throughout the entire product lifecycle, from concept to the product's end of life.

Data and information are accessible within the company without redundancy and in real time. The goal is the same regardless of whether the system is "on-prem", i.e. stationary, or cloud-based: to increase productivity within the company along the entire value chain.
