Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a systematic approach to managing the entire lifecycle of a product from inception, engineering design, manufacturing, service and product end-of-life. PLM comprises an integrated set of software tools for managing critical information generated by product development. PLM marries this data with associated engineering and business teams and processes. Common PLM processes include: design management, project management, engineering change and configuration management, and bill of materials (BOM) management.
PLM sits within the pillars of Enterprise Solution which also consist of other solutions such as Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Enterprise solutions are designed to integrate multiple facets of a company’s business through the interchange of information from various business process areas and related databases. The integration between multiple solutions allows companies to retrieve and disseminate critical business data throughout the organization leading to real time operating information.
Many companies have reaped significant productivity, quality, and time-to-market gains from their successful PLM implementations that streamline common processes. Companies are able to launch their product at lower cost due to rapid development during the product introduction phase. This eventually leads to earlier break-even of new product introduction and companies would be able to reap the benefits of higher profits for a much longer time period.
In addition to PLM, companies need additional capabilities, not only to manage rising complexity, but also support additional business processes. The additional processes include: portfolio and program management, managing and securing data, quality management, customer relationship management, supplier collaboration and manufacturing execution. PLM has become more than part of an IT infrastructure; it should now be part of an overall strategy for sustainable growth and competitive differentiation. Now, more than ever, it is critical to evaluate your current and future business needs to ensure your PLM strategy aligns with your business strategy.
