PLM configuration management (CM)

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Configuration Management (CM) is the process of identifying, organizing, controlling, and monitoring all the different versions, releases, and variations of a product throughout its entire lifecycle. It is a methodology that allows for effective management of the product development process, including design, engineering, manufacturing, and maintenance of a product.

PLM Configuration Management is responsible for identifying and controlling the different components of a product, including parts, subassemblies, and documentation. It ensures that the correct version of each component is used in the manufacturing process and that the documentation is up-to-date and accurate. It also ensures that the product development process is compliant with industry standards and regulations.

PLM CM is closely related to Change Management and it ensures that any changes made to the product or its components are properly controlled, approved and tracked through the change process.

PLM Configuration Management also includes managing the relationships between different items and components, such as parent-child relationships, and maintaining a Bill of Materials (BOM) that accurately reflects the product's structure. This allows for effective management of the product structure and BOMs.

In summary, PLM Configuration Management (CM) is the process of identifying, organizing, controlling, and monitoring all the different versions, releases, and variations of a product throughout its entire lifecycle. It is responsible for identifying and controlling the different components of a product, including parts, subassemblies, and documentation, and ensure that the product development process is compliant with industry standards and regulations.
