Challenges in PLM for Enterprise Organizations

Product lifecycle management (PLM) is a core requirement for modern product development, particularly as organizations face increasing product complexity and shorter product lifecycles.

PLM is also the key integration point for advanced product development technology such as application lifecycle management (ALM) and Internet of Things (IoT) data, and enables traceability required for Digital Thread and Digital Twin.

An organization’s ability to innovate and pursue Digital Transformation is therefore significantly dictated by the level of PLM functionality and maturity across the organization.

Analyst firm CIMdata looks at the benefits of an open and extensible product innovation platform that product teams use to transform their complete product development processes.
Leveraging cloud-based PLM for co-development, long-term programs, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures
This paper discusses how a proper integration between system model authoring tools (e.g. SysML) and PLM, can interactively and in real-time deliver all relevant “P” information of the RFLP core used in trade studies and therefore save Systems Engineers a significant amount of time, eliminate incorrect assumptions, and maximize reuse.
This white paper examines how the complimentary approaches of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) can facilitate the integration of engineering processes, tools, and data to improve productivity, quality, shorten cycle time, and reduce risk in the development process.
Is your current PLM system future-proof? Digital Engineering explores how a resilient PLM platform can handle critical shifts like changing business models, entering new markets or acquiring companies.
IDC researchers share opportunities and challenges of deploying different product life-cycle management (PLM) scenarios in the cloud. Included are specific approaches that the enterprise is wise to consider for PLM in the cloud.
