I’ve written about Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for more than a decade. Over that period, I have written at least a dozen magazine features on PLM for leading publications such Manufacturing Systems, Managing Automation, Automation World, and Software Strategies.
PLM describes the engineering aspect of a product from managing descriptions and properties of a product through its development and useful life. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing hundreds of leading PLM industry executives, software engineers, and end users about the real-world application of PLM software.
In 2011, I wrote the PLM Buyer’s Guide for Managing Automation‘s TechMatch Web site. The PLM Buyer’s Guide provides a comprehensive look at PLM software as well as an overview of the key industry providers and their product offerings.
You can find other examples of my coverage of PLM software in the sidebar under articles authored by Marty Weil.
