PDM vs PLM
What’s the difference?
One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is what’s the difference between PDM vs PLM? The answer: the configuration process. Although both solutions allow for effective product data management across small, medium, and large companies, one offers out-of-the-box preconfigured solutions while the other supports full customization across the product lifecycle.
PDM offers preconfigured solutions that get companies up and running immediately. It allows users easy management of designs, documents, BOMs, and processes while driving engineering and collaboration needs more efficiently. These preconfigured packages contain simplified capabilities for workflow and CAD integrations – all without taking away the ability to address complex issues.
PLM not only manages all product-related data but also extends the benefits of PDM to support the entire product lifecycle. It also supports the whole business across the product lifecycle with specialized applications for engineering, manufacturing, procurement, purchasing, suppliers, customers, sales and service.
