Definition of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

Product Lifecycle Management is defined as the business activity of managing, in the most effective way, a company's products all the way across their lifecycles; from the very first idea for a product all the way through until it is retired and disposed of. 


PLM is the management system for a company's products. PLM manages the whole product range, from individual part through individual product to the entire portfolio of products.


At the highest level, the objective of PLM is to increase product revenues, reduce product-related costs, maximise the value of the product portfolio, and maximise the value of current and future products for both customers and shareholders.
