The PLM Product Structure Standard explains the most fundamental part of PLM - the knowledge that truly sets PLM practitioners apart from their non-PLM colleagues.

The entire setup of a heterogeneous, real-world PLM environment comes from the way that the product structure is encapsulated within the system. Any mistakes or errors can mean that the PLM investment is wasted.

The Product Structure Standard acts as a template to show that PDM is set up correctly. For technical specialists, the Product Structure Standard is also an essential starting point to understand how PLM relates to ERP.
