PLM Checkup

Diagnosing Your PLM Health to Optimize Your Lifecycle Returns


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions can help your organization take control of your intellectual assets—your product definition information—to maximize your bottom line performance.

Most companies have already realized that PLM is an enterprise solution on a par with enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and supply chain management (SCM). Optimizing the management and use of your intellectual assets is a competitive necessity needed to survive and thrive in today’s markets.

One constant in this market evolution is that CIMdata has been helping companies improve their PLM strategies and capabilities. Whether you have PLM elements, such as product data management (PDM), CAD/CAM, workflow, digital manufacturing, or visualization, already in place or are contemplating an investment, CIMdata’s PLM Checkup can keep your efforts on track.
