PLM part

A physical item produced or purchased for use in, or consumed during, a product's manufacture. A part typically cannot be disassembled without its destruction or impairment.A PLM system manages data about the part (that is, part metadata), not the actual physical part itself. This PLM management process may require metadata beyond what the physical part requires. For instance, the PLM system may display a part revision field to distinguish between identically-identified and functionally interchangeable parts that have different constituent materials, construction processes or other attributes.
