Product Lifecycle Management

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) automates every process along your value chain.

PLM: Secure and Efficient Control of Data and Processes Along the Entire 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.

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.

CIDEON supports companies in the manufacturing industry and other sectors in the introduction of PLM systems of various scales. You too can benefit from our many years of consulting expertise and our in-depth process knowledge gained from numerous successful PLM projects.

PLM Consulting & Implementation

CIDEON offers you comprehensive consulting and support around the introduction of a PLM system in your company and is always at your side as a reliable partner afterwards. Benefit from our many years of experience from a large number of successfully implemented PLM projects, our agile approach and our close partnership with market-leading software manufacturers.

Analysis & Consulting

Together with you, we examine your existing systems and processes and discuss possible potentials for improvement. Based on this, our team of experts will develop a detailed plan for implementing a PLM system tailored to your individual requirements.


The implementation of your new PLM solution takes place step by step and in close coordination with important stakeholders from your company. In the process, we ensure a perfect-fit integration with existing systems (ERP, CAD, etc.) and guarantee that your day-to-day business runs smoothly.

Support & Optimization

After implementation, our support solutions ensure the unrestricted operability and availability of your PLM system – regardless of whether your company uses SAP PLM, Autodesk Vault or PRO.FILE. We also take care of adapting your PLM system to changed requirements, if necessary.
