  4. 4. PLM Mobility | June 2012 Introduction PLM is an integral part of any manufacturing enterprise’s DNA today. Needless to say that it is the fundamental repository to manage end-to-end product development information. With consistent pressure on toplines and bottomlines, quick and smarter information access and decision making ease is the order of the day. Mobile professionals as an integral part of the product lifecycle need timely and accurate access to range of information, lack of which could deal with costly delays and errors. They need to be always wired to the activities around their product. With lean processes kicking in strong, all stakeholders can never be out of the product information loop. Advances in wireless networking – speed, reliability and coverage, it is now feasible for the users to remain connected with the business surrounding their product. “The enterprise mobile workforce represented 57 percent of employees in 2010 and is expected to grow to as much as 93 percent by 2015” – Forrester Research Mobility Trends Before we see the PLM best practices and end user scenarios around mobility, let us examine a few trends and perspectives: IT, Users, Technology & Business Views for Mobility (Gartner) Top CIO Priorities – 2012 Smartphone Penetration is Growing 1.
