PLM Status Review
The objective of the PLM Status Review is to describe the status of a company's PLM situation.
At its broadest, the scope of the PLM Status Review is the complete product lifecycle - "from cradle to grave", "from sunrise to sunset". However, in many cases, a company will prefer to focus the review on particular parts of the lifecycle such as Product Innovation and Product Development.
The PLM Status Review addresses 10 components of PLM - products, processes, product data, PDM, PLM applications, people, methods, facilities and equipment, metrics, organisation.
The PLM Status Review evaluates, for each of these components, the level the company has achieved. It positions the company at one of 8 levels, with an 'A' ranking being highest.
