What is lifecycle management for electronics?

In electronics, managing a product from start to finish involves integrating people, data, processes and business systems. This approach, known as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), streamlines information flow, helping companies innovate, adapt and deliver high-quality products on time and within budget.

Optimize lifecycles through integrated data management

Realize the advantages of integrated data management. Electronics manufacturers are better equipped to handle complex product data and safeguard intellectual property, ensuring right the first time products with timely contextual information.


Improved business agility

Reduce the risk of data theft and malware that cripples product development. Use PLM solutions to enhance data security by leveraging the expertise of the provider and its cloud partner. (Forrester Research)


Reduction in processing time for quotations

Respond to customer inquiries more quickly, improve project timelines and allocate more time to value-added tasks with faster quotation processing. (elobau)


Require multiple engineering change orders

Minimize engineering change orders to accelerate next-gen product launches while ensuring compliance, meeting deadlines and staying in budget. Excessive changes lead to delays, added costs and compliance risks. (Aberdeen Group)

Before, if you wanted to find an engineering document, you needed to know where it was physically stored, in which system, on which file share and in which folder. Now, we’re able to collect both the engineering information and the other unstructured data – which is usually tenfold larger in size – all in one place.
