ZPLM supports a number of well developed and robust product lifecycle management processes in an integrated fashion to support effective and cross-functional product lifecycle management. ZPLM provides rich capabilities for Product Lifecycle Management and related workflow management.

Most of the interaction with ZPLM is usually as a user working on different facets of Product Lifecycle Management during design, manufacturing and quality planning and change management as well as participating and completing process (change management, corrective actions, continuous improvement) related activities.

There are a couple of ways you become a user of a ZPLM system.

  • Your ZPLM Admin adds you as a user
  • Your ZPLM Admin invites you as a user

If your ZPLM Admin invited you as a user you should have gotten the email with password and link to the system. You can login into the system with those credentials.
