Provide the context, security, traceability, and processes needed across enterprise teams and systems to ensure product data is accessible and trustworthy


Product lifecycle management software enables geographically-dispersed, multi-disciplinary, teams to strategically collaborate with partners and customers using trusted, up-to-date product information.

Product lifecycle management is the foundation for the digital thread, delivering supply chain agility and business continuity. Data governance and traceability provided by product lifecycle management enables organizations to drive down costs, accelerate time to market, and deliver the highest levels of quality and compliance.

Build a foundation for a wide range of new revenue and cost saving opportunities with PTC’s out-of-the-box applications. Seamlessly integrate our PLM system with ERP, MES, CAD, AR, IoT technologies, and more.


For discrete manufacturers, the digital thread begins in the engineering department. This is where mechanical/electronic components and embedded software data is linked with traceability to requirements, simulations, certifications, BOMs, process plans, and MBSE. This information, along with its derivatives, needs to be leveraged bi-directionally, across teams and systems; including service, manufacturing, IT, and quality, among others.

With a PLM system in place you create the foundation for the digital thread and provide all required stakeholders with access to the real-time data they need, when they need it.
