PLM411-06Acronym_SoupPrior Episode: A tongue-in-cheek pitch for the SwivelChair 2020 to integrate systems followed by an informative discussion with TSM Control Systems Engineering Manager David Keeley. We touch on how the gap between PDM and ERP causes mistakes and inefficiency that get reflected in poor quality products and customer dissatisfaction. Then, David explains how newer PLM systems with the flexibility to manage metadata and processes fill the void and how TSM implements new processes quickly and inexpensively in a way not possible with traditional CAD- and PDM-centric packages.
