PDM PLM Change Management

Implementing product changes: quickly, securely and documented

Product development means product changes, with numerous modifications and adaptations being

incorporated into the design prior to production. This means:

  • Changes need to be incorporated into a company's processes, taking into account their validity in terms of time/series.
  • Barriers between the departments involved in the changes cause delays and compromise quality.
  • Changes need to be well documented and documents protected at all times.

Effective PDM systems ensure professional change management.

Efficient Change Management Along the Product Lifecycle

Increase efficiency in managing changes. Benefit from PDM systems to activate digital workflows and keep track of changes.

Smooth Processing of Changes

Speed up the implementation of changes. Benefit from automated review and approval in PDM systems. The departments involved are then always kept up to date.

Keeping Track of Complex Changes

Maintain an overview and always be on the safe side – even when complex changes are involved. Master data can only be changed and saved with a changed history and/or according to specific criteria or conditions.

Define Processes

Define processes yourself by using the functions included in PDM systems that define standards in change processes and formats.
