White Paper - PLM and ERP: Their Respective Roles in Modern Manufacturing
Leading manufacturers are aligning their people, processes, and tools from initial product ideation through to field service. They do so by providing access to product and enterprise data in the context of each person’s domain expertise. However, it can be complicated and costly to unite engineering with the factory and supply chain. Plus, it’s challenging to make access to information user friendly when it resides in disparate systems across the company.

PTC believes the solution lies in extracting maximum benefit from both ERP/MES and PLM systems. With the proper coordination and calibration, these systems can add value beyond what either can deliver alone. Done effectively, the integration enables engineering, purchasing, and manufacturing to work concurrently even if they are spread across the globe and working from home offices.
