Community-based product development certainly makes sense since few PLM tasks nowadays are really standalone or can be automated via, say, electronic data interchange (EDI)  in  enterprise resource planning (ERP)  systems, but again, it did not sound like a blockbuster announcement.

Why Managing BOM Is Such a Big Task


In the discrete manufacturing sector, the bill of materials (BOM) is a fundamental piece of product data that exists throughout the major stages of a product's life cycle. According to Wikipedia, BOM is the term used to describe the raw materials, parts, subcomponents, and components needed to manufacture a finished product. Simply speaking, BOM is just a list of all materials needed to be

EDI versus. XML--Working in Tandem Rather Than Competing?


Electronic data interchange (EDI), extensible markup language (XML) , and any other format are merely "semantics" and input streams for expressing data, and whether a transaction is transmitted in EDI format or XML is largely secondary to the fact that electronic document and data exchange is growing rapidly.

EDI History Since electronic data interchange (EDI ) has earned a reputation as a complex, rigid, and expensive means of business document and data exchange among trading partners, one would expect it to be relegated as a relic of a bygone era. In the computer business, where new technologies can come and go almost overnight, EDI should have long become an artifact, let alone a technology with a mid-life crisis considering a number of younger Read More

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint


There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking thanks to various factors driving the market. Currently, however, the difference still matters in the solution selection process.
