Product Data Management

Product Data Management (PDM) is a business process which ensures version, access, and integrity control over all product information across the whole product lifecycle.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems are often used to support PDM, handling specification data, CAD files, simulation results, manufacturing data, and other documents to ensure access to consistent information for both current and old products; and to improve information flow and cross-functional communications.
