SAP PLM integrates all participants in the development process:
designers, suppliers, manufacturers, and customers. SAP's product attempts to
keep engineering from being a linear value chain, but rather a
three-dimensional, collaborative community focused on a common goal.
SAP PLM provides a solution for companies that require proactive
quality management to improve equipment and plant performance. SAP PLM is
delivered through mySAP Enterprise Portal, which is a role-based portal
solution. The solution provides Web-based access to internal and external
content, applications, and services.
SAP PLM integrates with mySAP Supply Chain Management, mySAP Customer
Relationship Management, mySAP Supplier Relationship Management, mySAP
Exchanges, and SAP's enterprise resource planning (ERP) offerings.
