PLM Basic question

Guyz,

i'm new to PLM and have some few quick questions for experts ...Pls do not give me SAP URL link to PLM which i already have....appreciate if you could give your hands-on real experienced/expert comments....

1> is PLM for software products or physical products like say car or any product?

2> has any one used successfully for software products (SAP and non-SAP technologies) ? Can we manage all phases of typical software development lifecycle phases (design, develop, test and deploy) ? does it have inbuilt reports to track project activities, document management stuff etc.....

3> does it come with normal ECC6 or add-on (to be installed separately) ?

4> is it out-of-box web based solution or good-old R/3 look&feel and can be confiured with portal?

appreciate if some one shares their experiences with this product....

thanks

    hi kasu,

    This is really very good and basic question..

    1..PLM is basicaly products(physical) but now a days it can be used for developement of software products also. we can map the software develo[pement process through PLM.so it not dedicate to Physical products only.PLM has project and program managent module.

    2...many software companies are using it for managing their projects and software products.. we can manage the phases of software projects.It provides various kinds of reports. we can customise reports also.

    It has cproject suite which is used for project management. which manges projects phase wise. we can mange the project documents in cfolder or DMS.

    3..cproject is web based application .It can be used standalone or with ECC 6.

    It can be used in CRM platform.

    4.it is portal based application.It has integration with SAP r/3 system.

    Regards

    shiv

    1.PLM Means Product Life Cycle Management

    PLM Application is used for Product related information management

    Answer to your Question is PLM is for Product Development of any kind, But the concept differs for Physical product & Software product

    2.Even MS Project can also be used for PLM

    3. i think it come normally with ECC6

    4.Answer to your 4 question is "Both solution are there"

    For example in Engineering change management it can be done with R/3 and it can also be web based

    Collobrative management is purely web based

      One of the ways of doing it by External number range. For example, define number range from ABC000 to ABC100. Assign this number range to document type in DC10. Create document with this document type by giving number in the range of ABC000 - ABC100.
