Product Lifecycle Management

Florida Tech now provides an online certificate program in Product Lifecycle Management. The course consists of 23 modules of the latest thinking on the concepts, principles, strategies, practices and applications of PLM.

What is PLM?

Product lifecycle management (PLM) is an integrated, information-driven approach — one that comprises people, processes and practices, and technology — to all aspects of a product's life and its environment. PLM encompasses numerous disciplines including engineering, manufacturing, sales and marketing, supply chain, customer support and product maintenance and upgrades.

Product lifecycle management is a 21st-century approach to mitigating or eliminating these issues. PLM is an integrative, information-driven, product-centric approach that not only employs the latest enabling technology, but also redefines how people, their processes and their practices interact with products throughout the product’s entire lifecycle.

PLM focuses not only on product development and manufacture, after which traditional manufacturers lose contact with their products, but also on retaining a connection throughout the product’s life to provide feedback on actual product performance and quality and to create new revenue opportunities. Finally, PLM helps ensure responsible disposal at the end of the product’s life.
