If you compare the definition of the concept of PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) and the definition of SE (Systems Engineering) and MBSE (Model-Based Systems Engineering), you´ll find many commonalities. Both concepts claim a life-cycle view of a system or a product. The differences are more in generating and using models in contrast to the management of those models.
The predecessor concepts of PLM – PDM, EDM, etc. – were there to manage drawings and models in mechanical engineering in the form of documents. Documents again raise a bell when we look back into the history of SE.
We talk to Erik Herzog about how these topics comply, how they can benefit from each other, and what a tool landscape may look like. Luckily also, Christian can provide some insights, as his employer is a PLM vendor.
