Optimize the Product Lifecycle and Enable Digital Transformation with PLM

Over the last 25 years, product lifecycle management (PLM) has evolved from engineering-focused document management and product data management to more strategic and comprehensive innovation management capabilities.

Digital pushes the scope even further: because PLM manages critical product data throughout the product lifecycle and across the supply chain, PLM now provides a critical infrastructure for the digital transformation of the end-to-end product development lifecycle.

Meanwhile, the pressure to speed cycle time, cut costs, eliminate complexity, improve quality and reduce compliance risk has never been greater.
