Product Life Cycle Management (PLM)
Product Life Cycle Management
Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) can be associated with documents, drawings, or changes in workflow steps to ensure appropriate actions are identified and approved. Documents and drawings associated with products and processes can be managed throughout their life cycle based on their state, from original design, to revision, QA, release, obsolescence, and archival or deletion.
As companies grow, their ability to utilize and pay for more sophisticated and integrated systems grows. eQuorum offers a PLM "lite" solution. Product Life Cycle Management systems have been developed to enable the entire organization to gather product data and production support requirements in a central place while providing the byproduct of easier and faster collaboration. The size of many enterprise PLM systems, however, may not fit small and medium-size businesses using PLM software for the first time. A PLM “lite” solution is a great entry-level, quick install, and fast payback approach.
