Product Lifecycle Management
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is an enterprise set of interrelated processes and applications that maintain complete knowledge of a company’s product assets over time.
Product Lifecycle Management, when implemented with the company’s characteristics in balance, will result in significant competitive advantage. This increase in competitive advantage will come from several channels of opportunity. The company will increase its innovation capabilities, be a leaner organization having added agility and flexibility through its global supply chain network, and increase multi-company collaboration through better configuration and change management processes.
The key tenets of the CSC PLM Practice and approach to our clients are: innovation, collaboration, global reach and security of intellectual property. CSC’s proven approach to PLM is based on business value aligned with the measures that guide the company through the executive dashboard. PLM is at the same scale as a company’s ERP and must be held to the same kinds of enterprise metrics and KPIs.
