Product Lifecycle Management is defined as a strategic business approach for effective management and use of corporate intellectual capital. Challenges faced by product development teams include globalisation, outsourcing, mass customisation, fast innovation and product traceability, enhancing the need for collaboration and knowledge management along the product lifecycle stages. PLM systems are gaining acceptance for managing all information about products throughout their whole lifecycle, from conceptualisation to operations/disposal. IJPLM addresses the development, promotion and coordination of PLM science and practice.

 



 Topics covered include

  • PLM for digital factories
  • End of life and regulatory aspects
  • Long-term retention and archiving
  • Embedded lifecycle intelligence in products, traceability/security issues
  • PLM infrastructure, implementation processes
  • Capture, structuring, reuse of lifecycle information
  • Collaborative product development, models for cross-disciplinary information sharing
  • PLM user requirements, customer preferences
  • Lifecycle virtual and simulation environments
  • Interoperability and enterprise systems integration
  • Emerging PLM standards and best practices
  • Organisational change management, PLM support for product innovation
  • Business strategies and benefits
  • Green and sustainable products
  • PLM educational and training approaches

Objectives

To draw up the prospects for research in this field, the IJPLM aims to help its readers understand and address PLM issues, identify appropriate visions and strategies, and then successfully plan, implement and use the corresponding systems and practices. IJPLM aims to contribute to a wide-scale dissemination of PLM knowledge, and works that seek to develop and apply pragmatic and advanced solutions for deploying collaborative processes of value creation and delivery. It also establishes channels of communication between experts in academic and research institutions, practitioners and professionals working in industry and related business, and policy makers.


Readership

Engineers and academics working in university research and design departments and institutes; and managers, designers, technologists, and research and development engineers working in industry.
