Driving the Change

One of the main issues companies have to address in managing product life cycles is the lack of control over changes to the key characteristics of individual products. In extreme cases, this can lead to products being launched that do not meet all the legal requirements.
A good PLM Software system helps companies keep control over the evolution of their product features and all relevant information.

The importance of a PLM Software

Any product requires internal and third-party checks and approvals before it can reach the market.
For example, approvals from authorities, ministries or other control bodies.
But also after a product is on the market, some of its features may need to be changed - from packaging to design/composition.
These processes of introduction and change must be closely monitored and controlled.

The lack of a good PLM management system increases the risk of marketing products that differ substantially from what consumers, authorities or even the company itself expect.

Keeping control through a PLM Software 

The PLM is made up of modules that collaborate in product development.
