PRODUCT DATA MANAGEMENT (PDM)/ LITE PRODUCT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT (PLM)Product data management for complex drawing relationships, allowing organizations to leverage intellectual property across departments and expand the use and collaboration of key data.
PDM: FROM DESIGN TO ENGINEERING TO DISTRIBUTION
Organizations need a system that supports complex product data during the design stage, while enabling easy-to-use distribution and collaboration features for all post-design activities. ImageSite Manufacturing handles the complex requirements of 2D/3D CAD product data management for engineering and design users. The solution also offers integrated version control, design approval workflows and engineering change management capabilities for engineering and design users.
ImageSite Manufacturing also provides many of the functions of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems to manage product data information through the lifecycle, from design to manufacturing to quality assurance to sales and to support. For organizations looking to manage product data (PDM) and related documents, drive productivity, get products and services to market faster and improve customer service levels, an engineering managed PDM/PLM system is more than a “nice to have” solution – it’s a mission critical solution that tackles the challenges of managing files across departments and streamlining product development and production lifecycle processes.

As companies grow, their ability to utilize and pay for more sophisticated and integrated systems grow. For product development and manufacture there are many software products to assist organizations in becoming more productive, more accurate, more responsive, and more secure. Like an enterprise ERP system, there is a time and place in the company’s evolution to purchase and install specific systems like a PLM solution. Often a starter, or "lite" PLM is the right choice.
