When we look at the progression of enterprise IT, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) technology continues to expand and overlap into adjacent areas of enterprise application functionality.
The FDA is currently in the final stages of implementing a Unique Device Identifier initiative. When this initiative is fully implemented, all medical devices will need to have a label containing Device Identifier and Production Identifier data. This mandate is aimed at improving patient care and product quality by creating the ability to trace information about each medical device throughout the supply chain.
Like many new companies, Apogee was managing product information with Excel spreadsheets where Bills of Materials (BOMs) were maintained manually and changes were managed in a homegrown system. The manual approach of hand entering information into spreadsheets proved to be error-prone with mistakes that wound up being very costly.
If you’re using paper-based methods to create and communicate work instructions, or finding your electronic methods cumbersome, you may want to consider switching to interactive, PLM-based electronic work instruction.

The new approach separates Teamcenter applications from being dependent on a specific version of the larger Teamcenter platform.
By implementing a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system, companies both large and small, benefit by simplifying and shortening each phase of the product development process. However, deciding whether or not to adopt PLM software has been a challenge for smaller organizations due to a reputation of PLM being difficult to implement.
During the past several years the tables have turned on a number of large high-tech companies as several market leaders have become followers, and several followers have become market leaders. The dramatic change has pivoted on the ability of these market followers to leverage investments in product development processes to deliver more innovative and impactful products than the leaders.
