In an era of digital continuity, product data is still often managed in data silos of ALM, PLM, ERP and legacy systems that are only partially, if at all integrated. Secure and efficient access to consistent and up-to-date product data over the entire product lifecycle is clearly needed. PLM is an enabler for Industry 4.0 because it integrates the development of products, production, and services. Using PLM in collaborative processes has become increasingly important to harness the power of data to foster innovation, make new and differentiated “smart” products, improve supply chains, create new customer experiences, and deliver new sources of value.
