Product Lifecycle Management PLM (ISA88, ISA95)

The product is the critical aset of the industrial enterprise. The industiral dynamics depends directly on the efficient management of the product lifecycle, from the market perception to the ability to deliver the customer orders. The production system is involved at the industrialization time (implementation of the product on the industrial system) and for the R&D and engineering feedback (product, process and methods improvement). Some possible actions to improve the product lifecycle:
  • Formal definition of Product requirement by R&D
  • Formal definition of manufacturing capabilities by engineering
  • Industrialisation support, "on the fly" product manufacturing definition

This expertise is based on the ISA88 part 3 standard that defines the basis for consistent product and process knowledge management and relationships to allow translation of product physico-chemical transformation requirements to executable equipment oriented procedures.
