A company’s success is first and foremost determined by the earning power of its projects and processes. It has to be able to coordinate the way it plans, manages, and controls its documents in a single system, as this will maximize the efficiency of its projects and processes.
This principle is at the core of PRO.FILE’s product lifecycle management (PLM) approach. Product lifecycle management (PLM) as the next step beyond PDM encompasses process control for product data and information flows, making it a strategic instrument of the manufacturing sector. PLM software is tightly integrated with a company’s business processes and plays an essential role in product development and innovation. Manufacturing companies that leverage PLM achieve a faster time to market for their products and reduce costs by creating innovation processes that are transparent and consistent across the enterprise. A PLM solution creates a seamless experience, giving everyone along the process chain – whether its incoming orders, design, production, or sales – controlled access to a consistent and unified Product Data Backbone.
