With fierce competition amongst car firms, OEMs must reduce car development cycles and decrease design and operational costs, while adding new disciplines, like embedded electronic systems, adhering to more regulations, and dealing with disbursed stakeholders. PLM answers these needs by providing extended automotive eco-systems with an integrated virtual "common ground" of information to support innovative collaboration. The virtualization of product and business processes’ intellectual property is a key enabler to realistic simulation and to the delivery of innovative vehicles right the first time. PLM speeds car firms’ innovation from the creative concept, through systems engineering, design, production, market introduction, after sales service and recycling.
