Teamcenter® software from Siemens PLM Software on the IBM® PureFlex™ System provides a flexible, scalable solution for consolidating the product development infrastructures of manufacturers. Transforming the manufacturing landscape with PLM Product lifecycle management (PLM) can be defined as an information strategy, in that it builds a coherent data structure by consolidating systems. PLM can also be described as an enterprise strategy, as it lets global organizations work as a single team to design, produce, support and retire products, while capturing best practices and lessons learned along the way. Ultimately, PLM is a transformational business strategy that extends throughout the entire product development process, touching many different applications, each with different infrastructure requirements.
