Manufacturing Product Lifecycle
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is an environment – not an application. Manufacturing PLM is the process of adopting a whole lifecycle perspective of the product from ideation, concept and detail design, procurement, production, and support and through to disposal. PLM is the critical backbone of the enterprise, especially for those companies where product is their life blood for success.

Establishing a PLM environment begins with how a company goes to market, i.e., Design to Order, Make to Order, Make to Stock, Assemble to Order, and/or Build to Order. It is about creating top down design of a business optimized to define, implement and support a product throughout its manufacturing lifecycle and enabled by best-in-class application and technical infrastructures.
To achieve the desired business results this means globalization of core processes, organizational key performance measures, and information transparency across all networks relevant to the product.
CSC’s PLM solutions help organizations decrease time to market, accelerate innovation with breakthrough methods, tools and techniques, and provide a single source for product and process information.
