ALM and PLM: The Business Case for Marriage

Accelerate your new product introduction with the innovation twins ALM and PLM. Products are getting smarter each year, increasing the number of lines of code and dependencies between hardware components, sub-systems, and the system in its entirety. People from different disciplines must work together to make products and systems work reliably. The different engineering disciplines involved typically work within their specialized tools: software engineering in their Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) system, electrical engineering in data management tools, and mechanical engineers manage data in their PLM system. The know-how exchange between those silos is often poor and results in substantial manual overhead.

In October 2022, we showed the technology enabling the data exchange between ALM and PLM. This time, together with PROSTEP and their OpenPDM Integration Platform, we will explain the business case for the collaboration between ALM and PLM. We’ll answer the question “why should you care” about the marriage between ALM and PLM.
