The objective of a PLM Audit is to get an independent assessment of the situation of PLM in a company.
At its broadest, the scope of the PLM Audit will be the complete product lifecycle. In other cases though, a company may prefer to focus the audit on a particular phase of the lifecycle.
The PLM Audit addresses 10 components of PLM - products, processes, product data, PDM, PLM applications, people, methods, facilities and equipment, metrics, organisation.
The Audit identifies and describes, for each of these components, the situation in the company.
