Product Data Management/ Product Lifecycle Management
The PDM Information Center provides companies with neutral, system-independent support as they seek to select and implement PDM/PLM systems tailored to their specific requirements. The specialist staff at the Fraunhofer IAO have recourse to expertise acquired from numerous projects involving the restructuring of organizational units and possess extensive experience in the fields of process management and process-oriented team-building.
They also support users in planning, controlling, documenting and communicating product developments and technical changes. The evolution of each product is clearly documented while maintaining full traceability of all the processes involved. That is why PDM systems make such a valuable contribution to quality management over the long term.
PDM/PLM systems are the backbone of a seamless IT support process for product development. They manage all of a product's technical data and documents throughout its entire life cycle.
