Realising the full scope of PLM with Business Process Management

Business Process Management (BPM) is a discipline that combines software capabilities and business expertise to accelerate process improvements and facilitate business innovation.

Although PLM technologies have been capable of addressing the components of product lifecycle, from initial product concept to disposal, users’ IT foundations have not necessarily always supported full PLM capabilities, resulting in limited implementations of the technology. Used to its full potential, PLM allows users to create and manage the intellectual capital generated in the development of their companies’ products and services, from ideation through to end of life, and importantly, not just during the design stages. It enhances companies’ development processes and their ability to use product information to make the best decisions around which product to make, and how to make it. But the ability to do these things relies on having the supporting IT architectures and infrastructures to fully leverage the inherent scope of PLM.
