Product Life-Cycle Management

PLM software assists in managing the “life cycle” of the product, part or component including conception, design, prototype, build, engineering change and ultimately, end-of-life. Usually integrated with Manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) systems.​

The Data Quadrant is a thorough evaluation and ranking of all software in an individual category to compare platforms across multiple dimensions.

These include:

  • User Satisfaction Rankings
  • Business Value Scores
  • Vendor Capability Comparisons
  • Product Feature Evaluations

The Emotional Footprint is a powerful indicator of overall user sentiment toward the relationship with the vendor, capturing data across five dimensions.

These include:

  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Service Experience
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Product Impact
  • Negotiation and Contract
