The Path to PLM is a comprehensive PLM adoption framework that leads from the first decision to try to understand PLM, through to a fully-working implementation.

What sets it apart from any generic adoption methodology is that it allows you to commit to reaching a practical and effective first implementation within two years.

This can save years of wandering around trade shows and talking to vendors, trying to understand the subject.  Instead, everyone can see when PLM will arrive.
