are adopting it, but what is “green”, really? We hear and see it everywhere—in the food we eat (green beans), during our morning routine (green contact lenses), on our way to work (green traffic lights), in our down time (green tea), and during the course of our work day (green initiatives).

I kept thinking about what the PLM industry can offer for SMBs. PLM used to be a luxury for large enterprises. Is the PLM industry ready to accommodate the increasing demands from SMBs? For the majority of SMBs, I don’t recommend using the big bang strategy to build their PLM systems. Having worked with SMBs on various PLM projects, I totally agree with the step-by-step approach proposed by PTC. In the discrete manufacturing sector, PLM tools such as CAD, CAE and CAM are usually the early PLM
