Every company that implements PLM does so in its own way, in response to its own operational drivers and constraints.  This means that even the best PLM implementation is a "one off", and entirely bespoke.

Standardisation is an essential part of advanced PLM, and is one of the cheapest and most effective ways of improving a mature PLM implementation.

The PLM Standardisation Manual is structured in seven logical parts. It covers all of the background and theory, and provides a clear and easy-to-follow methodology for applying standardisation within your own PLM environment. It shows the targets to aim for, the benefits that can be achieved, and the possiblilities for the future if best practice is shared across the PLM industry.
