|"Openness and extension through component based architecture and community."
Deploying PLM necessitates that product lifecycle development capability has significant breadth and depth. The specific needs of a company will further require that capability can be expanded, tailored, extended and integrated.
These requirements necessitate openness and the ability to re-apply components to achieve different behaviour or capability. The component application architecture provided within V5 has been specifically developed to meet these needs.
This is augmented through a community of application developers that have recognized the value of PLM and the opportunity to enrich V5 through their areas of expertise. Market leaders in each of their respective disciplines characterize the richness of the partner community around V5.
