Go PLM360 from Autodesk – Limited Time Offer

Before we talk about it., Let’s see what is PLM . . .

What is PLM ?

According to Wiki.,

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal. PLM integrates people, data, processes and business systems and provides a product information backbone for companies and their extended enterprise.

PLM systems help organizations in coping with the increasing complexity and engineering challenges of developing new products for the global competitive markets.

Product lifecycle management (PLM) should be distinguished from ‘Product life cycle management (marketing)’ (PLCM). PLM describes the engineering aspect of a product, from managing descriptions and properties of a product through its development and useful life; whereas, PLCM refers to the commercial management of life of a product in the business market with respect to costs and sales measures.

So this means that we can manage the work flow in a product development from concept to death by adopting PLM strategy. Sounds interesting ? Well, the word PLM has been in the market from a very long time., however, the companies offering this solution was very limited or rather cost of implementation of PLM solutions from these companies were quite expensive. So many of the SMB’s never even dared to move in that line. However, now Autodesk has come to the rescue for all types of companies – small , medium and even large companies willing to adopt PLM Strategy.

Now what’s the Solution from Autodesk ?
