Finding the right way to manage your product data can be a challenge.
Product lifecycle management software, PLM, can help.
But how do you choose the right path forward?
Let’s get some clarity.
First you have to choose what kind of PLM solution fits your business.
Unmanaged or manually managed environments are inefficient and lead to mistakes.
Basic product data management, PDM, can help.
PDM helps keep engineers organized and efficient, collaborate better, and avoid costly errors. But why stop there?
PLM goes beyond basic PDM to manage processes and projects in addition to data.
Let’s take a closer look at how PLM helps manage product data and puts your company on the path to do much more.
PLM helps companies keep revisions and configurations under control and prevents overwriting files.
It helps engineers work better, even if they’re in different locations, and it helps designers coordinate activities across departments and the supply chain, even if they use different CAD tools.
PLM provides the capabilities people across the business need to control, access, and share product data in a way that’s accessible to smaller companies.
