Here you can find some definitions about PLM. As I found many discussions about this topic, I choose to add some of them in this page. I do not adhere to any of them (or adhere to all of them?). Simply it is a kind of reference book, and I will add new ones as I find them.

“PLM is the product viewpoint of the whole business.  It is everything that improves
the development and management of products from an enterprise and lifecycle
perspective.” by the PLM Interest Group  (PLMIG)

PLM is easy to define. It’s 3 things. A product. Its lifecycle. And Managing it. It doesn’t need anymore fucking definition. by Al Dean from develop3D

“CIMdata defines PLM as:

  • A strategic business approach that applies a consistent set of business solutions that support the collaborative creation, management, dissemination, and use of product definition information
  • Supporting the extended enterprise (customers, design and supply partners, etc.)
  • Spanning from concept to end of life of a product or plant
  • Integrating people, processes, business systems, and information

It is important to note that PLM is not a definition of a piece, or pieces, of technology. It is a definition of a business approach to solving the problem of managing the complete set of product definition information—creating that information, managing it through its life, and disseminating and using it throughout the lifecycle of the product.” by Cimdata
