Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

Product lifecycle management (PLM): process automation along your value chain

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

Product lifecycle management (PLM) automates every process along your value chain.


Product lifecycle management (PLM): process automation along your value chain

PLM is a strategic and process-oriented approach that builds on PDM, makes the various transitions in a product manufacturing process transparent, and brings departments and systems together under one roof. Product lifecycle management systems (PLM systems) enable you to manage and control product development and manufacturing processes efficiently, securely and redundancy-free – throughout the entire product lifecycle. The rule is that there will be no PLM without PDM.
