The PLM-ALM Standard covers the development and management of hybrid software/hardware products through their lifecycle.

The Standard opens up the subject and enables the PLM Team to confirm that they are managing PLM-ALM correctly.  It enables you to understand what your ALM software is doing, and to prepare for any situation where you may have to reproduce an exact hardware/software configuration from the past.

The Standard itself is concise and easy to apply, and the accompanying Reference Manual contains an extensive explanation of the underlying theory.
