In today’s article we are going to talk about the PLM consulting service of Integral PLM, a company with extensive experience in the field of industry 4.0. But for this, we will first delve a little into the concept of project management.

What is PLM or project management

PLM stands for Product Lifecycle Management, which in our country is known as project management. It is the process that manages the complete life cycle of a product from its conception, through its design and manufacture until its reuse or end of its useful life.

This process is carried out through integrated software solutions, of the complete product life cycle. From the conception of the product with CAD (Computer Aided Design) solutions, through the analysis and optimization of the product with CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) solutions, arriving at the analysis of how this product will be produced and maintained with CAM solutions (Computer Aided Manufacturing) and capturing, reusing and sharing with each of the actors in the production cycle all the information generated in each of the stages mentioned above with PDM (Product Data Management) solutions.

PLM has a series of capabilities or programs that allow a company to effectively manage and innovate its products and related services throughout its useful life.

Together with CRM (Customer Relationshio Management) for business administration, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) for company resource management, SCM (Supply Chain Management) for supplier management and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) System to optimize production processes PLM is one of the five pillars of information technology infrastructure in a corporation.
