SAP Product Lifecycle Management
SAP Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM) supports all of the requisite phases in your product development processes, and makes available all product-specific information continuously and consistently in your company. With SAP PLM, you can optimize the entire product lifecycle, from the first draft, to manufacture, through to service parts management and after-sales service.
SAP PLM provides you with the following functions:
- Product and project management
SAP PLM supports the planning, management and control of product portfolios, and all of the related product development and decision-making. Planning functions such as Engineer to Order (ETO) can be integrated seamlessly using Camelot add-ons. You can therefore align higher-level project plans and objectives with the growth strategy of your company. Even environmental, security, and health matters are monitored for legal compliance in the framework of the EH&S standards, which means you can be sure about your products.
- Product data and document management
With SAP PLM, you can centrally manage and incorporate different documents relating to the lifecycle of your product. With the most modern web interfaces, internal employees as well as development partners, customers and suppliers can access and collectively edit master data, product documentation, product and project structures, technical documents, and project plans. With our extensive expertise in the area of Master Data Management (MDM), we can efficiently link all of your SAP PLM, SCM, and MDM processes.
- Cooperation during the product lifecycle
The setup and efficient use of business networks with SAP PLM makes cooperation easier between the individual stakeholders within your company and the external business partners in the areas of development, procurement, manufacture, service, and maintenance.
- Quality management
Audits and APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) are supported by integrated cross-industrial quality management in order to fulfill legal and operational requirements.
- Plant maintenance
A plant maintenance cockpit integrates your product-related plant maintenance processes for machines and plants, providing both centralization and mobility.
