Tech4PD Debates Role of PLM in Embedded Software Development

In this episode analysts Jim Brown of Tech-Clarity and Lifecycle Insight’s Chad Jackson debate how PLM can best support the development of embedded software for today’s mechatronic products. Developing the software for today’s systems is complex and should be integrated into the overall product design process, including mechanical and electrical design. The product development and engineering process should be cover

Assessing the Cloud PLM Opportunity

Issue in Focus: Assessing the Cloud PLM Opportunity: Evaluating the Benefits, Requirements, and Considerations explores the opportunity to leverage cloud computing technology with PLM (Product Lifecycle Management). The paper is intended to help companies evauluating PLM in the cloud by sharing information and experiences from more mature cloud enterprise applications including CRM. Please enjoy the

Tech-Clarity TV – Best Practices for Implementing PLM

Tech-Clarity joined PTC Global Services to benchmark how PLM implementation approaches impact the results companies achieve. See Jim Brown share some of the results from that study. The results share what top performers do differently in their PLM implementations in order to achieve higher levels of business performance. The top performers improved time to market,

PDM? PLM? TLA? WTH? PDM-less PLM?

What I learned this week … came from some reflection on PDM-less PLM: Is It Pragmatic or Just Problematic? on engineering-matters. Chad Jackson raises some great questions about whether PLM can be achieved without PDM. I wanted to share some of my thoughts on managing product data and managing product-related processes. I don’t think you

Supporting Business Strategies with Engineering Data – PLM? PDM? CPDM? EDM?

A quick peek into some research on … how effectively managing engineering data can improve engineering efficiency. Beyond just efficiency, the study looks at how solutions that manage engineering data – whether you call them PLM, PDM, CPDM, EDM, or any other acronym – can play a critical role in helping manufacturers realize their business strategies.
