What is PLM?
PLM has gone from being a niche technology used by a few textile companies to become a major enterprise solution demanded by virtually any size business.
PLM is now a proven industry solution that provides real demonstrable benefits, including a reduction in lead times of design and development, and associated cost savings. PLM increases process efficiency and help to maintain and differentiate brand identities.
The transparency of PLM will open new effective ways of communication in the process and makes everything searchable, giving a very large time savings and transparency within the organization. Recurring administrative tasks decreases and gives staff more time to focus instead on the core business. With these benefits, it is no surprise that PLM is seen as a given part of the IT landscape of a modern company.
PLM is used to ensure a number of key business processes; planning, design, engineering design / development, purchasing, sourcing, quality assurance and supply chain to name a few. PLM is used as a common data source for these processes.
With the help of a PLM system, information can be shared with suppliers, partners, and even customers using social media and other applications.
Modern PLM solutions support future cloud installations, 3D design visualization, enhanced fit check. Mobile applications and accessibility are obvious, as are web services and APIs to simplify integration with other IT solutions within the company.
