Under the Hood - All things PDM and PLM

Product development is complex and design is just one of the phases. There are many other phases and roles involved, from engineering and supply chain to quality and manufacturing. That’s where Autodesk product lifecycle management comes in. Autodesk PLM offers a simple and scalable approach to data and process management. This flexibility makes PLM accessible to any organization.

Flexible PLM is a necessity for any product development organization. Here are four reasons why:

1) The flexibility to implement what you need, when you need it.

Implementing a product lifecycle management system can feel overwhelming. There is much to consider when it comes to improving the way you manage your product development processes.

But Autodesk PLM allows you to start with just one area and scale with ease. This way, you can prioritize the processes or workflows that matter most and go from there.

Leveraging the simplicity of modular processes gives you the flexibility to implement what you need, when you need it.

2) Achieve your ideal workflows

You’re an innovator, and you need workflows that work the way you do. You shouldn’t be confined to prescribed workflows that aren’t ideal for your teams.

You know your organization best, so you need a PLM system that you can customize to your business requirements. Autodesk PLM is configurable and comes with out-of-the box processes that you can tailor to suit your own best practices.

3) Collaborate anytime, anywhere

A flexible PLM system should make collaboration easier than ever.  Autodesk PLM can standardize your digital processes with a wide range of capabilities that allows anyone to collaborate with accurate, timely data.

4) See the full picture with data from all sources

Speaking of accurate and timely data, you’ll need that data from all your systems, not just your PLM system.

Autodesk PLM allows you to transform and integrate your stand-alone business processes so you can do more with cross functional data sharing between PLM, ERP, and CRM.

With the most accurate data coming together from all sources across your organization, you’ll have the full picture to make the right business decisions and keep projects moving.
