ZPLM Applications

Conceptualizing, designing and manufacturing complex products is a rigorous and highly cross-functional process involving the whole supply chain. ZPLM supports cross-functional processes to support the entire Product Lifecycle in modern industry supply chains. We believe PLM in the Supply Chain needs to be process oriented, dynamic, flexible and information rich. Our approach is dramatically different from document and data management oriented PLM solutions, which have proven to minimally effective and hard to manage in dynamic industry supply chains.
