There is no one size fits all answer to this question as the tools used for PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) vary depending on the specific needs of the organization. However, some common PLM tools include 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) tools, databases, and product data management (PDM) systems.
3D CAD tools are used to create and manage 3D models of products, which can be used for visualizations, simulations, and analysis. Common 3D CAD tools include Autodesk Inventor, PTC Creo, and Siemens NX.
Databases are used to store and manage large amounts of product data, including information on product dimensions, materials, and manufacturing processes. Common database management systems include Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, and IBM DB2.
PDM systems are used to track and manage changes to product data throughout the product lifecycle. PDM systems can be used to generate reports, manage workflows, and control access to product data. Common PDM systems include PTC Windchill, Siemens Teamcenter, and Dassault Systèmes PLM software.
