The new engineering mantra: product lifecycle management (PLM) on the cloud

A collaborative approach to product design and development drives innovation. A cloud-based repository of engineering artifacts provides a consolidated view of enterprise knowledge. Our expert proposes a social network maturity model to generate intellectual capital through social networks.

PLM infrastructure implemented on the cloud enhances:

  • Product management: Engineering interfaces can be extended to product service and support functions.
  • Analytics: Real-time feedback on product performance improves the accuracy of demand and manufacturing planning.
  • Concurrent engineering: Workflow-based systems minimize design iterations, while enabling 'green' engineering and ensuring regulatory compliance.
