Configuration Management, PLM

Configuration Management (CM) is a component of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). Configuration management ensures quality, effectiveness and efficiency both in product development and later on in the production process and in the continuous improvement of products. This makes CM an important management discipline. When applied consistently throughout the life of a product, it ensures transparency and monitoring of its functional and physical characteristics.

The increasing degree in digitization is forcing us to take new paths in product development. These complex systems or System of Systems can only be managed intelligently with professional CM and PLM software. With PLM platforms you can manage all data and processes, starting with the product idea through design, development and production to the in-service phase.
