Implementation of Product Lifecycle Management in Small Scale Foundry in the Area of Product Data Management: A Case Study

Vijaykumar H. K., M. S. Uppin


In this paper, the PDXpert engineering data management software utilized for case study in the domain of Product data management (PDM) of product lifecycle management (PLM) in a small scale foundry. The implementation of PDM helped the manufacturers to manage the information traditionally contained in engineering documents, plant floor routings, change orders, sales orders and quality documentation, within a single solution that shared across the enterprise. Also, improved the accessibility and security of design, production, and quality and support data.
