PLM was supposed to be a natural evolution, taking advantage of information associated within 3D data to then flow into all downstream activities. PLM was created (by Dassault Systemes) around 20 years ago and the process was adopted industry-wide.
As you may be aware the industry standard definition of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from inception to its retirement. PLM encompasses people, data, processes and business systems that providing the backbone for companies and their extended enterprise.
