Can ERP Speak PLM?


Because product lifecycle management (PLM) offers a host of benefits to manufacturers, it has become one of the fastest growing categories of enterprise applications. But a PLM system needs to work hand-in-hand with an enterprise resource planning system, so how can an organization integrate these two enterprise applications, which "speak" in different languages?

The PLM market today consists of vendors offering a variety of solutions that in some way offer value to the product life cycle, but there is no single vendor that is supplying all of the solutions required to support a full PLM program (please see The PLM Program ). Many PLM solutions have their roots in the engineering department, but make no mistake—PLM is an enterprise application suite, and Read More

Can ERP Speak PLM? Part Two: Examples and Recommendations


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions have to work with many other systems, not just ERP, so integration is not a new issue for PLM vendors. Most PLM vendors recognize the need for integration and have addressed the need in their toolkits. The additional work comes from integrating the concepts and semantics of one system to the next, if this business level integration has not already been provided between the two systems. This can be a big challenge for best of breed vendors, who may need to rely on systems integrators for much of this conceptual and semantic integration.

plm 2009  Recommendations Are ERP and PLM Speaking the Same Language? Costs are an excellent example of semantic confusion. Accountants know that cost is a not a single characteristic of an item but a category of characteristics. Without answering a series of questions about the cost, the meaning of it is vague. Is the cost the procurement cost from the supplier? Does it include shipping? Does it include tax and duty? Does it include internal overhead, or is it just direct costs?
