What is SAP Product Lifecycle Management – SAP PLM?
We live in a fast-moving time: trends and customer requirements are constantly changing and with them the demands on companies to adjust their products and processes. Successful companies react quickly and flexible to these conditions by taking advantage of software, especially digitization in engineering, design, and production processes. What’s needed is a state-of-the-art PLM solution that integrates all departments, offering the opportunity to be one step ahead of the competition.
Discover your benefit with SAP PLM
SAP PLM is the only system offering the possibility to achieve all business processes in one modern, agile system. Thinking about digital transformation, Digital Twin, or IoT? These paths are made possible as critical design and production data is always available, in real time, through every step in the company’s product development processes – enabling a true closed loop process. SAP effectively closes time wasting, profit wasting gaps experienced in a legacy siloed IT landscape. The result is unmatched speed and agility in company-wide engineering change management, business intelligence, production, and more.
In addition to phenomenal savings in overall operating costs, IT costs are also significantly reduced as interface and IT administration costs are minimized. The PLM process must include the operation of CAD systems, even in the current shift to a model based enterprise. SAP Engineering Control Center makes a legacy PDM system unnecessary and substantially simplifies the company-wide landscape.
