According to the Siemens website, “Teamcenter (a Product lifecycle management (PLM) application) helps you deliver increasingly complex products to market while maximizing productivity and streamlining global operations. Take the first step to manage and share product designs, documents, BOMs and data with Teamcenter. Use standardized workflows and change processes to streamline efficiency throughout your organization.”
Their website goes on to define Product lifecycle management (PLM) as “an information management system that can integrate data, processes, business systems and, ultimately, people in an extended enterprise. PLM software allows you to manage this information throughout the entire lifecycle of a product efficiently and cost-effectively, from ideation, design and manufacture, through service and disposal.”
According to the independent Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) website, “Product lifecycle management, sometimes "product life cycle management", represents an all-encompassing vision for managing all data relating to the design, production, support and ultimate disposal of manufactured goods.”
