A formula for low-cost PLM at DNV GL

By Margaret Furleigh

Looking for low-cost PLM?

DNV GL, a global quality assurance and risk management company, leverages Teamcenter using Active Workspace.

When you talk about the total cost of ownership, you need to look at license costs, development costs, and operational costs.

For example, the Teamcenter Schedule Manager provides out-of-the-box capabilities to help DNV GL users plan, execute and track projects, while providing financial and technical status for management.
