What Can PLM Offer for SMBs?
Recently I attended a product lifecycle management (PLM) seminar hosted by PTC and its North American Windchill Partner of the Year award-winner BRT Solutions

cad downloads  tools such as 3D CAD, previously considered high-end technologies, now have become more affordable for SMBs. PLM tools increase productivity dramatically but they also lead to chaotic situations sometimes because the production of product information and technical documents becomes too easy. People realized that a vault is needed to maintain the single source of truth (master repository) for product information. Moving on, a company will find that it also needs a system to manage engineering changes, an
