Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Software & Solutions

What is PLM?PLM software

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) helps organisations manage their business processes for product innovation through to retirement. Today’s products are increasingly complex with a mix of mechanical, electronic and software content. There is stringent regulatory compliance to consider. Executives demand growth, predictability and organisational efficiency. Global products – local markets. The Supply Chain is intimately involved. PLM provides the framework to achieve this.

How Can Design Rule Help?

If you’re looking for your first PLM solution or package, a world of acronyms and jargon may feel like a bit of a minefield. How do you know which PLM software is right for you? Will you need advice, training or ongoing support? Maybe it is time for an upgrade or to take you system to the next level? How can you best use PLM in your particular industry?

Our team has industry leading PLM experience garnered from multiple implementations. We have worked with a range of industries including aerospace & defence, automotive & mobility, and marine life sciences, and with our wealth of knowledge to draw from, you could create better products than ever before.
