Your advantages with SAP PLM

Project management

More effective project management

From initial idea generation, through design, development and manufacturing, all the way to maintenance and disposal, SAP PLM integrates various business processes across your organization to provide a comprehensive, real-time view of your product's lifecycle management.


Better collaboration

Integration with other SAP modules such as Supply Chain Management (SCM) allows information to be shared seamlessly between departments and functions within your organization.


Greater efficiency and effectiveness in terms of design and development

Real innovation: the seamless connection across product development, production, supply chain, and customer service, plus the sharing of information, improves efficiency and responsiveness throughout the entire product lifecycle.


Higher quality designs

Use the digital PLM solution to support design development and management processes in your company; understanding and managing the product structure is made easier and changes can be controlled more effectively with greater clarity.

What is PLM software?

New product development constitutes a valuable asset for your company. Maximize your success potential with our PLM strategy. New product lines as well as necessary change processes in product life cycles require a great deal of master data from throughout your company. Integrated use of PLM across all areas enables digital access to transparent, collected data at the touch of a button.

This form of product life cycle management is extremely efficient. And it also makes work easier on the sales and after-sales service side of things. The PLM functions ensure easier, more sustainable processing of customer-specific and product-related inquiries, which in turn increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
