A PDM System that Can Grow to PLM is a Good Start

By Margaret Furleigh

A product data management (PDM) system enables you to manage all of your product and process-related knowledge in a single secure but accessible system that connects people and applications across your business. With a PDM system in place, product information assets can be coordinated and synchronized, enabling your business to:

  • Improve productivity and reduce cycle time
  • Reduce development errors and costs
  • Facilitate collaboration with anyone, anywhere
  • Improve value chain orchestration
  • Provide greater visibility to make better business decisions

Watch this webinar to see how Teamcenter X on the cloud can help you get started with PDM and grow to PLM.

PDM System Creates a Stable Foundation

To deliver these advantages, you need a PDM system that is able to support your business-specific needs. At its foundation, a PDM system must be able to provide the fundamentals of:

  • Secure data management
  • Process enablement
  • Bill-of-materials (BOM) and configuration management

Choosing the right PDM software gives your business a solid foundation that can easily be extended as your needs grow to product lifecycle management (PLM).
