Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) ConsultingPLM The concept seems simple: Think up ideas for new products and services, further develop the concepts that best align with your business strategy, scale up for production, then hand everything over to manufacturing. After that, just keep pace with changes to the product information until you retire or re-engineer the product.
It’s simple until you encounter the massive amount of product data that is PLM; the number of people, partners, and business units involved; and the ever-changing mood of market regulators (to highlight just a few of the complexities in designing a successful PLM program).
The good news is that SAP PLM, with its strategic integration to ERP, provides customers with a proven enterprise platform to unify product data and streamline critical business processes across the organization—all that, as well as the power to scale globally and react locally.
