PLM can play a role in service. But just how far should it extend into it? That debate takes place in this episode.
I believe in integration where its warranted. And besides managing service deliverables and documentation, its simply not warranted here. So many organizations struggle mightily to expand data management beyond controlling CAD files in just one location. I agree that managing service stuff in PLM makes sense as part of an enterprise data management initiative. But beyond that, I’m just trying to be pragmatic here. It just doesn’t make sense.
