CAD-Centric PLM, ERP-Centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What’s Right for You? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises, to a strategic degree. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. My post then explored the strengths and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from

In cases of environments with multiple ERP systems or multiple customized instances of the same ERP brand, the question of a single provider becomes immediately moot. At the end of the day, the lack of knowledge of product design will really keep the ERP providers out of the PLM business in some industries, as the core modules in PLM suites should support the engineering processes first.

Siemens to Rule the Plant via Kineo, VRcontext, and LMS Acquisitions


Siemens’s Industry Automation division, which includes Siemens PLM Software, continues with its strategy of offering manufacturing organizations virtually anything they might need—from product ideation and design to actual manufacturing execution and plant automation (including even the actual hardware products from sister divisions at Siemens). Still, the giant knows that hardly any large

Technomatix has many partners and it looks like Siemens wants to own some of the strategic partners, similar to the recent acquisition of Perfect Costing .

Where Does PLM Fit in the Extending LMS Formula?

One major reason that companies need PLM is to let CAx systems talk to other management systems. This is why major CAx providers are reigning in PLM. If PTC could become a part of SAP, then the enterprise resource planning (ERP) giant will have a strong CAx wing—making its leading position more unchallengeable in collaborative product definition management (cPDm), which is believed Read More
