Digital Engineering published the following commentary written by Robert Farrell on “The Intersection of Product Lifecycle Management and Climate Change” in the February 2021 issue which featured the PLM Green Global Alliance.
Until recently, initiatives to advance sustainability and combat climate change have primarily focused on improving product performance to minimize energy usage and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is enabling technologies and supporting software applications that are contributing to the greening of our global economy in many ways.
The PLM consulting firm CIMdata writes in their commentary PLM is Green: “The Critical Role of PLM – In complying with the increasing number and complexity of green regulations and requirements, too much is at stake to rely on manual operations and analyses performed late in development. For a growing number of companies, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) enabling technologies and processes are becoming indispensable in optimizing a product’s greenness.” Read more HERE.
In this whitepaper on “Redefining Product Lifecycle Management in a Circular Economy” from Tata Consultancy Services the authors write that “Companies can move to a circular economy by implementing the 5R approach (reduce, reuse, repurpose, remanufacture, and recycle). This shift will drive sustained growth, and impact how Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) capabilities are defined, implemented, and measured.” Read more HERE.
In this article on the Circular Economy and PLM from Technia the author writes “At Technia we are looking into developing the PLM tools that will enable companies to switch to a fully circular approach…PLM systems should serve as a major help for companies looking to switch to a circular (economy) model.” Read more HERE.
