PDM is one of the business functions within collaborative product definition management (cPDM), which is one of the major segments in the Global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market. PDM is a software responsible for the creation, management, and publication of product data. PDM helps organize product development by combining documents, technical data, computer-aided design (CAD), and images that are required to design, manufacture, support, and maintain a product. PDM also helps manufacturing companies find the data quickly, thereby reducing the data management time. It also reduces development errors and costs by enabling a collaborative product development cycle.
