  • M. Abramovici


Over the last decade PLM has become one of the key technological and organisational approaches and enablers for the effective management of product development and product creation processes. The first part of the paper summarises the current PLM state of the art. The second part of the contribution describes the main expected development directions in PLM and shows some results from PLM research projects carried out by ITM Bochum in cooperation with different industrial partners.
